Conservation of Information — The Idea
Readers can determine for themselves who’s blowing smoke and who’s got the beef.
Digital Evolution and Bohemian Bugs
All software engineers have been burnt by those sneaky “bugs” that manage to get past the defenses.
Education or Obfuscation? Avida in Science Class
You might think teaching about evolution in public schools is already about as misleading as it can be. Then, you find, it gets worse.
Can’t get enough David Berlinski? If you’ve been going through withdrawl since Dr. Berlinski returned to Paris after his American book tour for The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions, then have we got an interview for you: Read Christopher A. Ferrara’s interview “Jewish Intellectuals Challenge Tyranny of Darwinism.”
Intelligent Design Lab is Going Where no Evolution Simulation has Gone Before
Over the past decade or so there has been much hype about computer simulations of Darwinian evolution. The most hyped is Avida at the MSU Digital Evolution Laboratory. Avida researchers claim their work is not a simulation, but actually is Darwinian evolution in action. They describe it like this: In Avida, a population of self-replicating computer programs is subjected to external pressures (such as mutations and limited resources) and allowed to evolve subject to natural selection. This is not a mere simulation of evolution — digital organisms in Avida evolve to survive in a complex computational environment and will adapt to perform entirely new traits in ways never expected by the researchers, some of which seem highly creative.
