Film nite: Information Enigma film online

Spread the love

Information drives the development of life. But what is the source of that information? Could it have been produced by an unguided Darwinian process? Or did it require intelligent design? The Information Enigma is a fascinating 21-minute documentary that probes the mystery of biological information, the challenge it poses to orthodox Darwinian theory, and the reason it points to intelligent design. The video features molecular biologist Douglas Axe and Stephen Meyer, author of the books Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt.

    The Teaching Company or The Great Courses has an course on the science of information.

    http://www.thegreatcourses.com.....#038;pos=2

    For example on the lecture on DNA

    DNA, RNA, and the protein molecules they
    assemble are so interdependent that it’s hard
    to picture how life got started in the first place.
    Survey a selection of intriguing theories,
    including the view that genetic information in
    living cells results from eons of natural
    computation.

    I haven’t got this course yet but it will be interesting to see how they spin it. Human are really ingenious at fabricating fairy tales.

    You will get no argument from me. You don’t have to look any further than the numerous origins myths that societies have devised over the years. To think, one of these even states that light was created before the sun and stars.

    Oh, the horror!

    Ever hear of the one that goes somewhat like this:

    “x billion years ago, stuff happened and something infinitesimally small in which all the laws of physics were broken pooped out the universe and all the laws of physics at ftl speed and blah blah blah”

    ?

    You’d think they’d see the problem with saying an unstable mistake pooped out the laws of physics that were supposed to determine the mistake was unstable in the first place and guide the pooping. They talk about “high temperature high density state” but forget that by their own model, there was no law of physics to determine that!
    It’s kinda like how Atheopaths say “if God exists, then he’s a narcissistic sexist evil egomaniacal blah blah blah that doesn’t deserve anything” but fail to provide a foundation on which they base their moral judgments.

    That’s the power of fairy tales. πŸ˜€
