Annotated Bibliography on the Evolutionary Origin of the Vertebrate Immune System

This links to a list of books and articles collected by researcher Nick Matzke for the trial of Kitzmiller vs. Dover, in which noted Intelligent Design proponent Michael Behe testified that there was no published scientific literature about the evolution of the immune system.

On the left is a stack of books, book chapters, peer-reviewed papers, and articles about that very subject. When they were presented to Behe, he said that he hadn’t read them because they wouldn’t answer his objections to the theory.

On the right is Nick, who has added notes about the subject and significance of the materials and arranged the list in chronological order so that you can follow the development of our knowledge. To find out what’s in the list , go to the annotated bibliography

    I haven’t read that stack of papers and books either, but I am reasonably certain they never mention that point in time when the magic occurred. Thus, they don’t in fact answer Behe’s objections.
