Is the bacterial flagellum Irreducibly Complex?
By irreducibly complex I mean that the production of a particular function (in this case selectively advantageous propulsion by a rotating propellor of some kind) requires many specific simultaneous changes in 2 or more proteins such that it is unreasonable to think of them happening by chance.
I am interested to know whether any readers of this blog have read useful articles on the web which take the argument further.
I have looked at these:
1. Evolution in (Brownian) space:a model for the origin of the bacterial flagellum by N. J. Matzke 2. Mike Genes Series on Evolving the Bacterial Flagellum Through Mutation and Cooption
3. Ken Millers - The flagellum Unspun
4. William Dembski's Still Spinning just fine
If you have any suggestions please paste your link in a comment....many thanks!
