About That Robot Revolution…

Over at Defense One, they’re postulating a “robot revolution.” Even the smallest input that indicates that they’re performing their primary function better, faster, and at greater scale is enough to prompt them to keep doing more of that regardless of virtually every other consideration. That’s fine when you are talking about a simple program like Excel […] […]

Review — Complexity: A Guided Tour

Complexity: A Guided Tour Melanie Mitchel If you’re curious about what the “cutting edge,” in evolutionary theory is, this book should be on your reading list — for while it purports to be about complexity and complexity theory, it is actually an extended defense of evolutionary theory. Specifically, the author focuses on the idea that complexity is […] […]

Entropy and Evolution

Of course the whole idea of compensation, whether by distant or nearby events, makes no sense logically: an extremely improbable event is not rendered less improbable simply by the occurrence of “compensating” events elsewhere. According to this reasoning, the second law does not prevent scrap metal from reorganizing itself into a computer in one room, […] […]

Worldview Week 20: Considering Evolution

I’m blogging through a worldview class I’m teaching for our homeschool coop through the next year in this series of posts. Each week I’ll post a class outline and notes. One of the major thrusts of science is the concept of “evolution.” The problem with evolution is it has risen far above a mere scientific theory, […] […]

Evolution and Extrapolation

Here’s the background: In The Origin of Species, Darwin discussed the work of animal breeders, pigeon fanciers in particular. They might vary in coloring or display, but at the end of the day, as Darwin well knew, they all remained pigeons. Dogs vary greatly in size, but dogs they remain. Darwin said that varieties were […] […]

Evolution’s Lie

What is evolution’s foundational selling point to the world at large? Here is Bill Nye (the Science Guy) explaining why we should all believe in evolution. From the transcript: And I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe […] […]

A Very Good Question

You’ll recall from Casey’s post that “Bill Nye the Science Guy” is the fellow who warned recently in a viral video that parents who disbelieve in Darwinian evolution are at least morally bound to educate their kids as Darwinists. Why? Because, according to Bill Nye, America’s future as the world’s “most technologically advanced” nation will […] […]

The Four Failures of Macro Evolution

Science is observable, testable, and repeatable. If something is not all three of these things, then it is not science, but rather a collection of just so stories. Is evolutionary theory science, or a collection of just so stories. Evolution fails to explain life. In fact, modern medicine is entirely based on a simple fact proven […] […]

Evolution Proven?

Just about every time I discuss evolution with someone who really believes in it, one argument thrown out to prove evolution is DNA gene sequencing. Of course, even if the sequences of every living being on the face of the Earth were sequenced, and were shown to fit perfectly into the evolutionary pattern illustrated through […] […]
