Peter Cameron writes: “Infinity is back. Or rather, it never (ever, ever…) went away. While mathematicians have a good sense of the infinite as a concept, cosmologists and physicists are finding it much more difficult to make sense of the infinite in nature.”
“An international team of scientists reveals an evolving, magnetized environment and surprising source location for deep-space fast radio bursts – observations that defy current understanding.”
It’s not hard to recognise that we are in a hyperskeptical, ideologically polarised warped thinking age at war with objective truth and knowledge. Fundamentally, our academics have betrayed us, starting with putting the inferior substitute, skepticism, in the place of prudence. Once that was done, there is no firewal on skepticism so it spiralled into Read More…
Bacterial growth patterns toss off a code for sending abstract ideas and only a “powerful AI” can crack it. So we live in a world of information, not matter.
Getting a moth antenna to seek anything but floral scents may be the challenge.
The fact that humans and other life forms “want” things may underlie the superiority of natural vision systems to machine vision systems. It will be interesting to see how easy the gap is to close — if it can be done at all.
The unanswered question in the article is, “How did the genes develop in the first place?”
David Coppedge writes: Evidence is growing that organisms share existing genetic information horizontally, not just vertically. This has immense implications for neo-Darwinian theory that are not yet fully recognized. If traits can be shared across species, genera and even phyla, they are not being inherited from common ancestors. The findings might also cast stories about Read More…
Hugh Ross: “To most people using their naked eyes, the heavens don’t seem to be declaring anything at all. But through space telescopes, they are proclaiming the wonders and beauty of God and his creation to a degree never before seen.”
Researchers show that human fetuses respond to what their mothers eat.
Anyone having some familiarity with Einstein’s general relativity theory knows that what is called “empty space” is not nothing.
The JoHari Window provides a useful context to control speculation or accusation or assumption posing as knowledge: Here, we see a personal focus. This can readily be extended to institutions, movements, interest groups and the public. We can even see, through faction dynamics, how a minority may see while the community at large is innocently Read More…
Walter Bradley and Casey Luskin write: Major scientific magazines and journals often feature articles on the “Biggest Unsolved Mysteries in Science”1 — and the origin of life is almost always on that list, sometimes as the number one mystery.2 In this and coming posts we will explore key challenges to a natural, chemical origin of life. We’ll Read More…
“The insights gathered by [this research] offer a clearer picture of the dramatic events that once unfolded deep within our planet’s interior. They also provide new hints as to how Earth narrowly avoided a Mars-like fate, just as complex, multicellular life was beginning to emerge.”
