Abstract: If probability demonstrated Darwinism, that would be a significant result

In “Testing evolution” (Journal of Cosmology, September-October 2011),
Lee M Spetner writes,

Abstract: Although the problem of the probability of the evolutionary process is a possible test of evolutionary theory it has not been adequately addressed. A recent attempt was made to resolve it by estimating the time for evolution, and it concluded that there was plenty of time. This would have been a very significant result had it been correct. It turns out, however, that the assumptions made in formulating the model of evolution were faulty and the conclusion of that attempt is therefore unsubstantiated. The issue remains unresolved.

The probability test of evolutionary theory still has to be made. It can be made only when we are able to calculate, for example, the probability of a known example of evolution of for which data are available. Until that time, the probabilistic aspect of evolutionary theory remains untested.

In fairness, the Darwinist is saved by faith alone, not works.

    I think that even though evolution is not an ergodic process (as is claimed by Chaitin for example), this does not eliminate the problem of parameter tuning to start it off.
