The Climate Audit Paradigm

One of the interesting aspects of Climategate is that the website Climate Audit (www.climateaudit.org) has become a lot more prominent. For instance, here is a excerpt from an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal. “This September, Mr. Mann told a New York Times reporter in one of the leaked emails that: “Those such as […]

It points out that the direction of public policy (= what Top People want) in the United States is in stark contrast to the beliefs of most of the people. It has been signed by many key leaders. […]

A Non Genetic Protein Translation Mechanism Adds More Complexity to Cellular Adaptation

Biology’s sophisticated adaptation machine has now been discovered to be even more sophisticated. In recent years the types of adaptation often claimed to be examples of evolution in action have been found to be driven by complex mechanisms that respond to environmental pressures.

Darwin and the Mathematicians”, here, is David Berlinsk’s final interview with Evolution News and Views.

IC All The Way Down, The Grand Human Evolutionary Discontinuity, And Probabilistic Resources

The more we learn the more it appears that almost everything of any significance in living systems is irreducibly complex. Multiple systems must almost always be simultaneously modified to proceed to the next island of function. Every software engineer knows this, and living things are fundamentally based on software. Evolution in the fossil record is […]
