An “engineering theory of evolution” might be one way of expressing what the ID proponents who participated in the CELS event were seeking.
Earlier this month, Michael Flannery and John West discussed the legacy of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) on the occasion of his birthday.
If computer scientists build systems like that, and life at the DNA level also incorporates them, for the very same reasons, that’s rather suggestive.
If you “listen to the experts,” or anyway some of the experts, cells are “little bags of garbage” and Miller-Urey is a “true simulation of prebiotic chemistry.”
We may be in a precious window when ID scientists can still reach any interested reader, anywhere in the world, any day of the year.
