If you search for the phrase “evolution simulation” in Google, you’ll get many hits. Come to think of it, computer evolution simulations are an evolutionary icon. What of them? Do they falsify the claims of intelligent design theory?
Ewert argues that Richard Dawkins’s “Methinks It Is Like a Weasel” simulation doesn’t prove biological evolution and isn’t even very interesting. Ewert says there are some interesting computer evolution simulations, but he explains that they fail to model anything biologically realistic.
Dr. Ewert’s book is getting raves from some impressive scientists, including star mathematician Gregory Chaitin, author of Proving Darwin: Making Biology Mathematical. He calls the book, “An honest attempt to discuss what few people seem to realize is an important problem.”
Speaking of Chaitin, says Dr. Bijan Nemati of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech:
With penetrating brilliance, and with a masterful exercise of pedagogy and wit, the authors take on Chaitin’s challenge, that Darwin’s theory should be subjectable to a mathematical assessment and either pass or fail. Surveying over seven decades of development in algorithmics and information theory, they make a compelling case that it fails.
