But what if the CIO is herself a chimp?

Blogger Wintery Knight, a programmer by day, comments on neo-Darwinism’s view of how information gets encoded:
Imagine a materialist CIO who thought that code was written by large numbers of monkeys pounding at keyboards instead of by engineers. He would be firing all the software engineers and replacing them with monkeys in order to generate better code. And he would call this method of generating new code “science”. It’s the scientific way of generating new information, he would say, and using software engineers to generate new code isn’t “science”. It’s what he learned at UC Berkeley and UW Madison! His professors of biology swear that it is true!
It seems to me that there are incentives in place that make it impossible for Darwinists to discuss their materialistic religion honestly. The feel pressured to distort the evidence in the public square, and there are political pressures on them to distort the evidence in order to avoid being censured by their employers and colleagues. When questions about the evidence for Darwinism come up, they have to rally around their religion and chant the creeds that comfort them. There can be no questioning of the faith in the presupposition of materialism.
