From ESSSAT (European Society for the Study of Science and Theology), “a scholarly, non-confessional organization, based in Europe, which aims to promote the study of relationships between the natural sciences and theological views.” By Philippe Gagnon. Here. Warning: ESSSAT uses a retarded system where one can sort of see the article shaded, without getting rid […]

Readers, do you remember: What great physicists have said about immateriality and consciousness? And Being as Communion? Here’s a new one: It From Bit or Bit From It?: On Physics and Information (The Frontiers Collection) The essays in this book look at the question of whether physics can be based on information, or – as […]

Retired British doctor Jon Garvey wrote an interesting review some months back at Hump of the Camel of William Dembski’s Being as Communion: Evolution, then, is legitimately viewed as an algorithmic search, which is agreed at least by those who produce evolutionary algorithms to simulate it. As is well known, Dembski utilized the then recently-proven […]

There are many ID’ers who complain about the AVIDA simulation, and I for the life of me can’t figure out why this is so.

Sorry if this post is a bit for computer programmers, anyway I trust that also the others can grasp the overall picture. Evolutionists claim that what it takes to evolution to work is simply “a populations of replicators, random variations on them, and a competition for survival or resources”. Today we will try to partially […]

In June we began to think seriously about William Dembski’s then upcoming Being as Communion, a more philosophical look at design in nature.

If information theory is right, Darwinian evolution isn’t even possible

(it’s designed to) These are some thoughts prompted by the recent article Arrival of the Fittest: Robustness and flexibility are basic design principles. We design modules so that they are robust against minor damage, bad inputs and changes in other parts of the code. This aids ‘evolvability’ of the whole by untangling the knots so […]

His discussion of how information differs from matter is vital to non-clowns, but how many “Christian academics” does the non-clown designation include?

Mutations are used to explain evolution but also cause cancer. Biologists have discovered conditions for multiple mutations. Can we therefore infer that evolution via mutations is more likely? or that enhanced mutations will cause faster species degradation and extinction? Biologists describe mechanism promoting multiple DNA mutations DNA mutations—long known to fuel cancer as well as […]
Debating Darwin and Design A dialogue between two Christians 1.

Transcendence and the materialist hope for eternity, resurrection and paradise . . . but computation is not contemplation

The UK Independent is noting how Stephen Hawking says of the Film on AI, Transcendence — plot summary here at wiki, that ‘Transcendence looks at the implications of artificial intelligence – but are we taking AI seriously enough?’ First off, I think “implications” is probably over the top — we seem to be more looking […]
