ABSTRACT
The article outlines a scientific answer to the objections formulated against the evolutionary theory at the chemical--molecular level for Michael Behe in his book "Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution." For such purpose it presents, by means of a selection among the most prestigious specialized publications, the current state of the last investigations carried out by scientific community in Genetics and Biochemistry, focusing on the counter--examples proposed in this work --bloodclotting cascade, immune system and bacterial flagellum--, and showing abundant scientific evidence as contradictory with intelligent design as consistent with Darwinism.
