Powerhouse of Scientists Refute Evolution, Part Two
by Brian Thomas, M.S. *
In 2011, 29 leading design scientists held a Biological Information symposium in which they compared the standard Darwinian explanation of origins to amazing new discoveries about biological languages. The second major theme among the groups presentations dealt with Difficulties in Creating Biological Information. In essence, they tried to re-engineer aspects of creating information. What did they uncover?
Geneticist John Sanford, lead organizer of the Biological Information symposium, helpfully summarized the technical proceedings in a document titled, Biological Information: New Perspectives. A Synopsis and Limited Commentary.1 The document summarized evaluations of evolutionists digital attempts to envision natural selection generating information, for example with the software program Tierra.
In one paper, Dr. Ewert, an electrical and computer engineer, along with mathematician and philosopher William Dembski and computer engineer Robert Marks II, showed that Tierra failed to evolve information in computer simulations, even though its programmer placed unrealistic, evolution-friendly parameters into the software.

More crap from the Institute for Creative Research. Good people who are totally clueless.

Do lay evolutionists have any arguments other than ad hominem?
maybe not relevant here, but I read an article recently in a Physics journal (well...read the portion of it I could understand) which talked about how even what we used to think of as physics (such as a cup of coffee becoming room temp) is really “particles” exchanging information with each other and causing “equilibrium”. The point being, it is not really “movement” at all, but the flow of information between, ahem, the minds of the molecules.
Apparently a famous physicist proposed this back in the day as a grad student, and no one liked it, but now it is starting to get a hearing.
I suppose the point here being, evolution simply does not give an account for how information moves through the universe. But a Mind sort of directing the universe actually starts to explain it......
(I know that is not a very good scientific post. I beg the forgiveness and mercy of all scientists here. To me this is a philosophical and theological issue, and I know that the hard science is very rapidly out of my league).
“I know that is not a very good scientific post.”
And your qualifications for making such a comment are...?
29 Design Scientists conclude that God did it.
What is a ‘design scientist’?
You are wrong on AT LEAST two counts.
(1) The ICR article is a summary of work from ANOTHER organization.
(2) Not all of the ‘BINR’ authors agree with all of ICR’s positions.
** By the way, do you have anything of substance to add?
When you can pass philosophy 101, give me a holler and we can go from there.....
“When you can pass philosophy 101, give me a holler and we can go from there.....”
I passed philosophy 101.
This argument is as boring as ever. Let’s hear your views on the latest political contretemps.
Stop this crap. Evolution, science and God all exist together. This is not an either-or mutually exclusive topic. We can, and have both.
Not according to the ICR.
“This argument ...”
"Survival of the fittest," interpreted as "survival of the most ruthless," is a falsehood, the only way the Devil can get his foot in the door.
I believe that. THEY don’t.
Thanks for the post, fishtank. Both creation and evolution are faith-based belief systems.
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Rev 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
God created the heaven and the earth. That’s what He said happened. We can either have faith that He told the truth, or we can call Him a liar.
