    "What I pray of you is, to keep your eye upon Him, for that is everything. Do you say, 'How am I to keep my eye on Him?' I reply, keep your eye off everything else, and you will soon see Him. All depends on the eye of faith being kept on Him. How simple it is!" (J.B. Stoney)

    As i recall, there was an entire table listing all the coding region changes altered in polar bears vs. their closest living relatives. Maybe Behe didn't devote much space to this, or maybe it was just brought up in the context of this discussion.
