  1. It’s a pretty good read, I was impressed. He’s still confused about information though. Fortunately the book doesn’t stand or fall on that.

    If you have time, could you expand on this. I have read the book but this would not be a criticism of it. Maybe I am missing something.

  3. Check out Dr. Meyer’s interview with C-SPAN’s BookTV at FreedomFest in Las Vegas, a comprehensive discussion of Darwin’s Doubt:

    Meyer thinks that information can be meaningless. In particular, Shannon information. The very phrase “meaningless information” is an oxymoron.

    He fails to properly understand both information and Shannon information.

    As Jan Kahre writes in The Mathematical Theory of Information:

    A fundamental, but somehow forgotten fact, is that information is always information about something.

    Even “Shannon information” is information about something.
