  1. This is so funny! I love the slow down slide too. Whoever this Galapagos Finch is really makes me laugh. I think that this just goes to show you that Evolutionary Algorithms should not be useful in design. Instead an intelligent designer must come up with things that are actually functional.

  2. Evolutionary/genetic algorithms should be viewed as just as another tool in an engineer’s toolset. If it makes sense to use the tool in a particular scenario then use it. Obviously they have to be properly designed in order to get a result within the design parameters.

    Ha ha! This is very funny!

    I’m new here (advocate of classical Neoplatonist design – not a Christian, hope that’s not a problem!). So forgive me if I’m missing something here.

    I read this post as a (very funny!) joke. But I was confused by the comments. IrishFather412 wrote:

    This seems to imply that the picture demonstrates something. Patrick then replied:

    Huh? So this is the result of a real genetic algorithm??!! If so, can you post the code for us examine more closely?

    Again, sorry if I’m being obtuse!

  4. Tools imply tool makers. I guess I don’t understand how this is relevant to the design inference except that if i saw that toilet paper in the place where toilet paper usually hangs, I would infer that an intelligent agent had placed it there.

  5. Dear Galapagos,

    Your “genetic algorithm” jokes aren’t funny, and presenting them as real news to generate interest and site hits makes you look like a lying tool.

    Love,

  6. Your “genetic algorithm” jokes aren’t funny, and presenting them as real news to generate interest and site hits makes you look like a lying tool.

    Do you object to sites like http://www.theonion.com and http://www.scrappleface.com? Are these sites also the products of “lying tools”? Do they not have parody in your country?

  7. If you read the comments here, and in the prior thread about the slide, you’ll find many people taking them seriously.

    The Onion does not present itself as real news except in the most utterly superficial way.

  8. Bugsy, are you also concerned about all the people being deceived by “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” and outraged by all the interest and viewership they generate?

  9. Does anyone take their fabrications seriously?

    Basically, for this to be the case, people needed to take Colbert seriously enough to start trash-talking Hollywood studios for glorifying wrist violence.

    As this hasn’t happened to my knowledge, it’s different. Satire with “satire” effectively stamped on it clearly isn’t fraud. Satire that prompts, for instance, Patrick to start rambling with a straight face about the virtues and detriments of genetic algorithms needs to prove itself or it’s fraud.

  10. Bugsy,

    Utinam logica falsa tuam philosophiam totam suffodiant!

    Gloppy

  11. Galapagos,

    You demand logic of Bugsy, but have you not heard: Ultra posse nemo obligatur.

    The TP is hilarious, by the way!

    Keith

  12. Methinks Bugsy is grumpy because he has aggravating circumstances that need attention.
