Are the three “cardinal problems” of biology still almost untouched?

#### Evolution Is a Movie Running Backward

That is what makes it so different from other phenomena in our universe, and why it demands a very different sort of explanation.

#### A Mathematician Explains the Irreducible Complexity of Metamorphosis

In my 2000 *Mathematical Intelligencer* article “A Mathematician’s View of Evolution,” I compared the development of the genetic code of life with the development of a computer program, such as my finite element code PDE2D.

#### “More Philosophical than Scientific”: Parsing a Rationalization

If you want to show that evolution does not violate the second law, you cannot simply say, sure, evolution is astronomically improbable, but the Earth is an open system, so there is no problem.
