Behe has a teaching role at Lehigh, yes?  Have we ever heard from any of his students?  Do legit students take any of his courses?  He is a magnet for tards?  Does he talk about ID and mouse traps in class?  Have any of his students ever pointed out how wrong he is in class?

Rate My Professors!

Although, I have to question the accuracy.  Behe has 9 kids and gets a hotness rating of zero?  Go figure.

Bwa Ha Ha!  I used your link and searched for Dembski... The oldest comment is beautiful:

"What a vacuous tool! He is SO full of himself. He is actually full of **** and that's it. You could NOT design a worse professor."

And once again the Baby Jesus makes Dembski cry.

This review was intriguing:

Easy, almost trivially so, with little to no intelectual rigour in the material. Very dull class and Prof. Take this if you are a fan of self-obssesed psuedoscience, otherwise steer clear.

OH, how I hate to admit this cause I know the inevitable but for the sake of honesty...I took a graduate biochemistry course from Behe before I'd ever really heard about him.

Well, DUDE, clue is in on his classroom activities and antics.  Does he steer clear of IDc or is it a subject he engages with students.

Does he tech the controversy in class or?

yes, I'm a Lehigh grad and no he doesn't teach (or didn't) ID in class.  This, of course was before he achieved any real fame (infamous) at least in my eyes cause I had never heard of him.  The first day of class he mentioned he was a bit of a heretic in the biology community because of a book he wrote.  That was the extent of it.  Looking back I remember only one clear implication and that was the final exam.  As a bonus question, he asked the statistical probability of monkeys banging on a type writer question.  Again, that was it.  I later saw his book and really began to understand who he was but he was a very good, passionate teacher.  In that sense I often find myself sympathetic to him even though I don't agree with much he says about the subject.

As far as sexy, I'm not really the one to judge that.  :D

I'm glad Behe is a good and passionate teacher. The world needs many more of those. I'm glad he doesn't teach obvious falsehoods in his classes too. Good on him.

That's a serious comment by the way. There will be no "but..."

Thanks for shedding some light on the subject, skeptic.

And I'm no biologist, nor have I ever studied monkeys or numbers but I bet there is a 99% probability that if you give a monkey a typewriter he's going to bang on it at some point.

I suspect his students would have him for lunch if he started blowing his IDc nonsense in class.  Well the students that aren't afraid that is.

And any student that has looked at the biology department homepage knows Lehigh thinks Behe is a crank so only a tard would sit there and listen to nonsense.  Yeah I would think he would not engage in much IDc chatter in class knowing full well his own students would chew through his nonsense.  I think Behe knows full well who is audience is, hand picked high schoolers and IDC tard and tardettes.

Skeptic,

Did you go anywhere else but Lehigh or was it all Lehigh and nothing but Lehigh?

What was the uni like? I've often wondered. Seriously.

I attended undergrad at a small University in the Midwest.  My road to Lehigh actually went through my Department Head as she knew the DH at Lehigh through ACS and the rest is history.  As for the school, I loved it on every level except for one and that is cost.  The area around there was very expensive, compared to my prior experience, and when I looked at Philly and the surrounding area I knew it was not going to afford me the standard of living that I or my wife were accustomed to.  I would highly recommed it though as it is considered to be just one step down from our Ivy Leagues.
