Must be noted scholar's post that's gone missing.   :p

NS: Get a textbook on general relativity, and you will typically find a math textbook devoted mainly to Riemannian geometry. So by your reasoning, it actually isn’t about the structure of spacetime.

ppb: And the environment creates the information required for evolution to successfully locate a target how? Lots of environments lack the active information to conduct successful targeted searches.

I’m growing weary of these quibblings and thus shutting the comments off.

Not to burst your bubbles, but this isn’t actually a pro-ID article. It’s more about math than anything else.

Gordon Mullings is latched on latching
 
Quote
Weasel, as described c. 1986, may therefore plainly legitimately be interpreted as letter-by-letter partitioned, explicitly latched search. [Cf my highlighted excerpt from BW, and WmAD's remarks in his own thread and in the just published paper.]

...
 
Quote
On the whole, Weasel functions to create the false impression that functionally specific, complex information can be had on teh cheap though gradual cumulative selection. but the use of proximity-based targetted search shows that Weasel is riddled with active, purposeful information that undermines any legitimate capability to show what is triumphantly announced.

BillB takes up the challenge this time
 
Quote

KF, the issue that I am addressing is purely and simply that Dawkins WEASEL algorithm does not specify nor require a latching mechanism and that apparent latching behaviour is simply an expected result when only observing the fittest member of each generation.

Latching, pseudo-latching, quasi-latching are all inventions of yours, they are distractions, red herrings, straw-men. Your inability to understand this simple point and deal with the issue ‘on its merits’ as you so like to claim, is breathtaking.

KF:

It has been demonstrated empirically time and again that latching is NOT REQUIRED in order for WEASEL to produce the results that you yourself display on your colourful pages. Why do you keep insisting that a mechanism that is unnecessary and never described actually exists?

Ignoring OBVIOUS AND COPIOUS evidence on this issue seems to be a particular talent of yours, combined with your usual rude accusations and appeals to moderators.

Please don’t reply with more of your veiled insults by pretending that this is all obfuscation and red herrings, IT IS NOT, it is simply a matter of FACT, I’ve even written my own weasel program in the past using Dawkins description and observed how the results look like latching is at work when no mechanism is present in the code. Many others have done the same and found the same results.


OUCH

BillB:

Again, I have pointed out that

(a) the most natural interpretation of Mr Dawkins’ actual words — cf the above excerpt from BW if you do not care to follow the link — is partitioned search and explicit latching. MORE TOT HE POINT, THEY SHOW THAT HE UNDERTOOK PROXIMITY-BASED TARGETTED SEARCH WITH REWARD OF NON-FUNCTIONALITY. (That is Weasel is fundamentally flawed and demonstrably rhetorically seriously misleading.)

(b) other readings are possible, and it is demonstrated — not just speculation — that with suitable filters and parameter tuning, Weasel programs can implicitly latch.

( c) on the balance of the evidence of statements, printed runs and whatnot, the published runs of 1986 seem to have implicitly latched.

(d) Quasi-patching with rare reversions is also possible.

(e) far from latching behaviour is also possible.

All of this I have stated, and as necessary, shown.

So, why are you re-stating what I have said, with emphases and wording that make it seem that I am in the wrong to say such? [You can write type d or e versions of Weasel to your heart's content. That will not change the natural reading of Mr Dawkins' words, circa 1986, and it will not change the fact that the runs he published at that time show behaviour that is best explained as latched. the issue is how. Explicit latching is the easiest way, but implicit quasi-latching is also possible. And, far-from latched versions of Weasel are irrelevant to the status as at 1986, INCLUDING the 1987 BBC Horizon videotaped runs.]

Please, recheck yourself on cognitive dissonance again. Recall, it its the same Dawkins who said that those who disagree with his evolutionary materialism — especially if they happen to be “Creationists” — are ignorant, stupid, insane or wicked.

Do I need to spell that out:

D-E-M-O-N-I-S-I-N-G

PS: Could you kindly provide us with a credible copy of the actual program or algorithm for the Weasel runs as published circa 1986? [If you cannot, given your declaration that >> Dawkins WEASEL algorithm does not specify nor require a latching mechanism and that apparent latching behaviour is simply an expected result when only observing the fittest member of each generation >> then my remarks above and in the again linked are doubly underscored.]

Um, every copy of the Blind Watchmaker comes with a "credible copy of the actual program or algorithm". Where do you suppose all those people who've recreated it using the description in the book got the information from Gordon?

Dawkins states the algorithm in his book, The Blind Watchmaker.

Dawkins: "The computer examines the mutant nonsense phrases, the 'progeny' of the original phrase, and chooses the one which, however slightly, most resembles the target phrase, METHINKS IT IS LIKE A WEASEL."

Weasel doesn't latch letters. It's selection on the level of the phrase.

It's also clear from this video of Dawkins running the program. Ironically, Dembski himself posted the video back in March.

Robots 'Evolve' the Ability to Deceive
 
Quote
The team programmed small, wheeled robots with the goal of finding food: each robot received more points the longer it stayed close to "food" (signified by a light colored ring on the floor) and lost points when it was close to "poison" (a dark-colored ring). Each robot could also flash a blue light that other robots could detect with their cameras.


Behaviours evolving? Not possible! Must be ID!
Quote
By the 50th generation, some eventually learned to not flash their blue light as much when they were near the food so as to not draw the attention of other robots, according to the researchers. After a few hundred generations, the majority of the robots never flashed light when they were near the food. The robots also evolved to become either highly attracted to, slightly attracted to, or repelled by the light.

I wonder what the FSCI value for the neural networks were....

I don't think Gordon Mullings gives a rats derriere about the Dawkins concept nor indeed what a phrase is.

It would be more fun just to take a set of his trade mark phrases and run 2 tests the Dawkins GA and a simulation of 10,000 monkeys bit blasting and see which suceeds.

KF is just one of Dembski's wethers* and asking him now to understand the GA concept and it's power to navigate a problem space in a previously unmapped territory with successful outcomes we define because we can but more importantly for cry babies like Dembski make money.

Now after Dembski actually scurried with the "latch" to his vanity press will find any rat catcher employed interminably delatching KF's head from faulty logic traps only to have him immediatly put his head back in.

He enjoys being castrated and dead wrong.

I'd like to see him argue with a coconut.

Another  "This could be an interesting ID prediction" from the house of Tard. When are these fuckwit's going to catch on, How does ID predict what this tosser is talking about. Is he saying that ID posits that all DNA is functional (because_God_would_have_done_it_that_way_but_we_are_not_supposed _to_talk_about_that_yet) therefore ID predicts....
BTW a question I'd love to see on UD but can't be arsed to make my own sock.
If my great Aunt thought you could tell someone’s future by reading their tea leaves, Does that mean it contains information?  I want GEM of Tard to tell me does the tea have FSCI if I believe her? Can he calculate it and what happens to the information, if I stop believing ? Maybe it’s like a quantum wave form, all states exist until we determine that it’s bull shit.

Didn't David Kellogg show the UDiots a website where someone went through the weasel section of The Blind Watchmaker sentence-by-sentence to show just how wrong the whole latching argument is the last time they had this discussion (sorry, no link, my Google-Fu is acting up today)?

Of course, they could just read the actual text themselves, if they could get over their fear of actually learning something.

Incidentally, neither Dembski nor Marks have any excuse for their mischaracterization of Dr. Dawkins' work. Wesley Elsberry informed Dembski of the issue  back in 2000. Marks has to have known since the date of that post, October of 2007, at the latest.

Wow, the Google is strong in Sparc.

That gave me enough to get to the exchange I was remembering where Gordon refused to read past the first paragraph because he thought it said "IDiots" when in fact it says "IDCists".  Apparently his reading comprehension is . . . consistent.

Gil "has a thought"
   
Quote
I’ve had a thought somewhat along the lines of the OP. Much of what has been proposed as junk DNA involves redundant or repetitive nucleotide sequences. Computer programs often use repetitive or iterative code (for example, for(), do(), and while() loops), the number of iterations of which are either specified or controlled by other code.

Er, and now what Gil? I think you forgot the next paragraph where you note how you'd go about testing that, what any potential results would indicate and all that other fancy stuff generally falling under "work" rather then "armchair scientist".

And anyway, in a computer program you can have a loop that runs 1000 times and you don't need 1000 loops in the source code. You just use a counter. So if junk DNA has lots of repetitive section then it's exactly unlike a computer program in that regard. So WTF Gil, did you think about that one for all of a second?

R0b,

You have set yourself up as an expert on this so I have a suggestion. Namely, that you take your insight to the journals that have published his articles and publish a letter or article telling the world what you know and that you claim Dembski is lying. Lying would be the appropriate term if “his points are false as a simple matter of fact.”

So step up and back your accusations. Otherwise there is a religious expression that applies.


careful jerry, that is gonna happen and d-d-d-d-d-d-d-dr dembski ain't gonna like it.

With all due respect, Mr. Erasmus, sir, it seems to me that Dembski will get more benefit from being a martyr than being the author of an article that will never be referenced by anyone outside of the ID cesspool.

Perhaps he left the misrepresentation of Dawkins work in on purpose!  (Okay, okay, I'll go sit in the corner with my tinfoil hat now.)

what we don't know is why he hasn't acted like he knows.

i offer that your suggestion appeals to what we know about dembski, i.e. his petty disregard for facts and shallow narcissistic emotional responses to what he perceives as a personal insult (when infact it may simply be, as in this case, that he is in error).  yea, it is in line with his character as we know it, but there is a crucial detail missing from the explanatory narrative account of his motive, namely, how will this get him back into the Baylor cafeteria?  

figure THAT out and you have an airtight case!

Latest blog poster is Niwrad. Darwin backwards. How imaginative.

They could have at least used an anagram!

So I suggest you get honest on this and drop the objections to calling it latching and say you don’t know what it is.

Jerry telling somebody else to "get honest" is beyond parody.

On a different thread Bourne has some thoughts about Darwinists:

It is, for them, a psychological insecurity that obliges persistent denial of realities – similar to that encountered in psychiatric ward patients.

Hmm.

But Jerry! It's on the U-Tubes!! It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes.

(And Dembski knew it long before he published his paper. All Dembski had to do was say his "partitioned search" was "inspired by" Dawkins's Weasel program. That's what they do in Hollywood.)
