Examples

  • The components of the system (beyond the fork in the pathway) are fibrinogen, prothrombin, Stuart factor, and proaccelerin.

    Behe's Test

  • Behe was very clear in DBB that those four factors (fibrinogen, prothrombin, Stuart factor, and proaccelerin) were the necessary components for what he conceived to be the IC portion of the blood clotting cascade.

    Behe vs. Dawkins

  • This comment is shortsighted and betrays what Behe actually said were the components of the IC portion of the bloodclotting cascade: fibrinogen, prothrombin, Stuart factor, and proaccelerin.

    Behe vs. Dawkins

  • What I think you said was, when I looked at — the subset of the blood clotting cascade included fibrinogen, prothrombin, proaccelerin, and activated Stuart factor.

    Barbara Forrest Speaks Out

  • Actually, when defining the clotting system as irreducibly complex, Behe never mentioned Hagemann Factor as one of it's essential parts, he only listed fibrinogen, prothrombin, Stuart factor, and proaccelerin:

    Barbara Forrest Speaks Out

  • Leaving aside the system before the fork in the pathway, where some details are less well known, the blood-clotting system fits the definition of irreducible complexity … The components of the system (beyond the fork in the pathway) are fibrinogen, prothrombin, Stuart factor, and proaccelerin.

    Confirmation Bias and ID

  • The "components" he was referring to was fibrinogen, prothrombin, Stuart factor, and proaccelerin and they are actually essential in the clotting cascade.

    Confirmation Bias and ID

  • The components of the system (beyond the fork in the pathway) are fibrinogen, prothrombin, Stuart factor, and proaccelerin. … in the absence of any one of the components, blood does not clot, and the system fails.
