GilDodgen hasn't actually replied to any of the comments in UD that point out his misunderstanding of how modelling works, has he? It's as if they just don't exist... perhaps they don't fit his model. Certainly, everything he's written subsequently confirms the analysis someone made earlier that he's completely missed the point - and, perhaps, belongs in that class of people who are unable to work with that sort of abstraction.

I've always wanted a straight answer (hah) to the observation that, if the creationists are right and no computer model of evolution can do anything other than prove intelligence is needed, what the successful weather and ecological modelling systems prove? Seems to me that if they had the confidence of their arguments, they'd be saying how this proves that only God knows from whence the wind comes, and counts the fall of each sparrow.
