At Phys.org: Alpine lake bacteria deploy two light-harvesting systems

Christopher Packham writes: Though humans, along with other vertebrate and invertebrate organisms, don’t photosynthesize, we’re definitely the downstream beneficiaries of the life forms that do. Phototrophic organisms at the bottom of the food chain convert abundant sunlight into the energy that ultimately powers all other life. The two metabolic systems for harvesting light energy are fundamentally different. Read More…

Functionally Specified Complex Information & Organization Intelligent Design Self-replication The God Hypothesis

At Quora: Is it possible to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that intelligence was required to create life?

John von Neumann mathematically showed that the information content of the simplest self-replicating machine is about 1500 bits of information. This is a vast amount of information, far exceeding the information content of the physical (non-living) universe.

At Evolution News: Theoretical Physicist Sabine Hossenfelder on the Deficiency of Alternative Models to Big Bang Cosmology

We observe phenomena in this universe that are beyond the known constraints imposed by the laws of nature, implying that natural explanations are insufficient to explain their existence. The origin of this universe is one of those observed realities that transcend the abilities of nature.

Fine tuning Multiverse The God Hypothesis

At Big Think: Why the Multiverse is a “God-of-the-gaps” theory

Marcelo Gleiser writes: “The Multiverse has been proposed as an answer to the question, “Why does our Universe exist?” 
Its proponents believe the Multiverse can explain our origins without having to reference God. But the Multiverse is in no way falsifiable, and the arguments in its support are nearly identical to the arguments for God.”
