Intelligent Design

An exchange at UD on dFSCI — digitally coded, functionally specific complex information — as an empirically and analytically reliable sign of design as cause

  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…

Computer Simulations and Darwinism

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…

Cosmologists: Relax, the standard model still works

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…
