As I read Behe he accepts common descent and small scale evolutionary
changes. Maybe I am missing something but it seems to me that Behe
accepts enough of the evolutionary paradigm to predict the same protein

I am also having trouble understanding the point of this thread as your
main point is related to evolution of complex biological changes?
