Using a computer program to test various hardware configurations for fitness in a problem solving situation and determine which is the optimal is not evolution, it is simply the application of trial and error at a much faster pace than we can do it without the speeds computers use.
Uh, natural selection is pretty much iterative trial and error over biological and geological time scales, is it not? So what if computers/robots do it faster? Does that change the basic premise?

Also, has anyone noticed that the notion of RMNS as opposed to creationism has the effect of making us greater than God, because it makes the Creator unintelligent chaos, whereas we are intelligent?
Whoa man. Like cool. I guess I need to worship the Great Unintelligent Chaos at the First Church of the Probability Vector.

Uh oh, Smidlee steps in it.
So far it seems to me the evidence show that complexes creatures/things/programs can’t make anything as complex or more complex than itself. So no doubt a very complex computer program (made by even more complex human) could build/design less products yet the program would be more complex than the product /results itself. Same with humans; will we really be able to create our own equal like in sci-fi? From my understanding even God doesn’t have an equal (Can God create his equal?); thus we are less complex than our Creator.
And whatever created our Creator must be REALLY friggin complex. And can God create his equal? Can God create a rock so heavy he can't lift it? Like whoa man. Heavy.

Over on the ARN discussion board there is a discussion about that computers can generate CSI that refutes ID. This “aiguy” is clueless to the fact that the CSI generated by the computer can be traced back to its designers.
1st Jospehus must adequately define CSI. Then, he must trace CSI in biology back to its designer. Good luck.
