Dembski: The probabilities can move very much in favour of spontaneous emergence of life provided you introduce a search that makes the probabilities high

Tenure mob did not stop him from speaking.
Reader: Coyne is headed, if not already there, in the same direction to that of Dawkins.
I’m not aware of any policy restriction on providing links to TalkOrigins at UD. I’ve linked to TalkOrigins a lot since I’ve criticized it so much in the past. In this case, I actually concur with one of Gordon Davisson’s essays there, and I think it rightly earned Post of the Month 14 years ago […]
This essay is intended to give a short overview of textbook understanding of Shannon Information, Entropy, Uncertainty in thermodynamics and Intelligent Design. Technical corrections are welcome. The phrases “Shannon Information”, “Shannon Uncertainty”, “Shannon Entropy” are all the same. The most familiar every day usage of the notion of Shannon Information is in the world of […]

In this post I want to consider another aspect of information. Specifically, I want to consider the concept of “Shannon information.” First of all, I admit to having ruffled a few feathers when I mentioned in passing in a prior post that “Shannon information is not really information.” As I have also written before in […]
If traditional evolution theory is this wrong, a theory of information in life forms is more needed than ever.
Overall, they identified a high-diversity of 60 unique venom protein and peptide families from just five species investigated. (Nothing to see, folks, move on.)
Probably no solution to problems of evolution will work if information is ignored. But that would mean dumping current materialism.
My first post on UD, a mere 6 weeks ago, covered some basic principles about information. Specifically, I addressed the misunderstandings of those who deny that there is anything special about the information contained in, say, DNA, as opposed to a pile of rocks or Saturn’s rings. We had a very productive discussion, with a number of issues explored. […]
… proving that information is not God either. When Big Data fails, common sense comes into its own
