Why Engineering Science is Critical Concerning an Objective Evaluation of Darwinian Theory
|April 26, 2011||Posted by GilDodgen under Intelligent Design|
Engineering is often thought of as one of the “lower” sciences. I propose the opposite, that the engineering disciplines are in the category of the most rigorous sciences (such as mathematics), because they expose themselves to empirical and logical invalidation.
This is in complete contrast to Darwinian evolutionary “theory,” which is perpetually amorphous, explains everything and nothing at the same time, is impossible to pin down, and is impervious to logic, reason, mathematical scrutiny, or evidence.
This is perhaps why an increasing number of us in the engineering community — especially the software-engineering community, since it is now obvious that living systems are fundamentally based on complex software rather than stochastic chemical interactions — find Darwinian explanations to be not only illogical, empirically unsupportable, and mathematically absurd, but also motivated by an obvious philosophical pre-commitment which will not let such people follow evidence and logic where they inevitably lead.
