The creos have taken up Behe's banner on this one.

Mostly good for the pics, and a JBS Haldane quote that I would like to follow up:

Design in Living Organisms: Motors
by Jonathan Sarfati
Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal 12(1):3–5, 1998

Would any evidence convince evolutionists?
The famous British evolutionist (and communist) J.B.S. Haldane claimed in 1949 that evolution could never produce ‘various mechanisms, such as the wheel and magnet, which would be useless till fairly perfect.’10 Therefore such machines in organisms would, in his opinion, prove evolution false. These molecular motors have indeed fulfilled one of Haldane’s criteria. Also, turtles11 and monarch butterflies12 which use magnetic sensors for navigation fulfil Haldane’s other criterion. I wonder whether Haldane would have had a change of heart if he had been alive to see these discoveries. Many evolutionists rule out intelligent design a priori, so the evidence, overwhelming as it is, would probably have no effect.
