Bacterial Flagella are Rotary Motors

There seems to be some confusion over on Peaceful Science where some, including Joshua Swamidass, are trying to deny the fact that bacterial flagella ARE rotary motors.

Google has a wealth of information that supports the claim:

bacterial flagella rotary motor

So I don't know what the issue is. Are they complaining because it isn't exactly like a motor built by humans? I don't know.

They seem to think that ID says it is intelligently designed only because we call it a rotary motor. Of course that is perhaps the most ignorant thing to think but given who is doing it I am not surprised.


▪ Abstract Flagellated bacteria, such as Escherichia coli, swim by rotating thin helical filaments, each driven at its base by a reversible rotary motor, powered by an ion flux.
