Unfortunately, when Darwinists use the term, they mean: “Science is giving us a reality check ‘when it tells other people something they do not want to hear.’”
(Physics is still a discipline in science because even Einstein might be wrong. Math is still a discipline because people can even admit the idea didn’t work and then just go back to their desks.)
Functionally specific, complex information and associated information [FSCO/I] — especially, digitally coded FSCI [dFSCI] — are seen as two of the strongest signs of design as cause. For instance, when you see this post, you do not wonder or debate the odds of different letters being strung by chance [e.g. e in English is Read More…

Okay dudes, no more talk about my abandonment of atheism. Here’s some science and engineering talk. I know something about computer simulations. In fact, I know a lot about them, and their limitations. Search algorithms (and especially AI-related search algorithms) are a specialty of mine, as is combinatorial mathematics. The branching factor (the average number Read More…
The advice, while not bad, is the quick fix of popular culture, despite the authors’ best efforts to dissociate themselves from all that
From “Scientists Release Most Accurate Simulation of the Universe to Date” (ScienceDaily, Sep. 30, 2011), we learn, The Bolshoi supercomputer simulation, the most accurate and detailed large cosmological simulation run to date, gives physicists and astronomers a powerful new tool for understanding such cosmic mysteries as galaxy formation, dark matter, and dark energy. In one Read More…
But absence of evidence IS evidence of absence. We do it all the time in astronomy.
As someone who has used simulation as a research tool, the question I have always asked (but to which I have struggled to find a satisfactory answer) concerns validation.
… a general failure of our society to get big things done.
Ball hopes Darwin will solve the problem.
