You know the driving rules are smuggled into the algorithm.
Seriously, I have a question for evilutionists. What is the problem with learning as a metaphor for evolution?
I know there's a huge difference in the supporting substrate, but the process seems to be the same. When an organism is learning, There is no invocation of magic regarding where the information comes from.
I see all these battles over the word information, when it seems to me that however loosely the term is used, it can be a useful metaphor. The battle should be to understand that learning is an accumulation of information, and that evolution is learning.
