ID Quacks

According to Kenneth Chang of the New York Times, a fossil bird, Gansus yumenensis, many are calling a missing link in bird evolution, "looked like a duck. It swam like a duck. It is not known if it quacked like a duck."

RSR's question is this, what does this mean for ID "theorist" Michael Behe who famously wrote, that "in the absence of any convincing non-design explanation, we are justified in thinking that real intelligent design was involved in life.”

“... if it looks, walks and quacks like a duck," wrote Behe in a New York Times Op-Ed, "then, absent compelling evidence to the contrary, we have warrant to conclude it's a duck.”

Looks like Behe's duck turns out to be yet more convincing non-design evidence. Still, we're sure that no matter how much the evidence piles up, Behe will keep quacking about intelligent design.
