|Has anyone listened to this? At 3' 22'', W. Dembski says about his paper "Conservation of Information in Search: Measuring the Cost of Success":|
(my own transcript)
|We have some powerful results that follow up on this paper. This is a paper called "The Search for the Search", which is coming out... It should be out now, but there is some delay in the journal's publishing [???]. That will really nail things down.|
I didn't have the stomach to listen to the whole thing, but I'm quite interested in this new paper.
BTW, Dembski says about the first paper:
|It shows that Darwinian processes require information.|
Um, not information as we know it, Jim.
You can download Dembski's draft for "The search for the search" here.
He describes it as
"[...] the type of information we find in living systems is beyond the creative means of purely material processes [...] Who or what is such an ultimate source of information? [...] from a theistic perspective, such an information source would presumably have to be God."
