ID may not be falsifiable ... but it certainly fails the test of Occam's Razor.

It is far simpler an explanation that something happens as a matter of nature (physics and chemistry) than that one invent a wrathful deity with the maturity of a spoiled child.

If they didn't provide a link to where Behe said it ... just as we have seen here at SAGG ... it is a strong indication that no such evidence exists.
