You just can’t make this stuff up. Seversky apparently has no clue what the reductive materialism that undergirds his very own Darwinian worldview actually entails.
And it’s a tad ironic that you seem to be completely unaware that quantum mechanics is reductive materialism taken to the n-th degree. It reduces everything to the properties of material or physical reality at the smallest scale we have been able to observe thus far.
Though Charles Darwin himself knew nothing about the information in life that is constraining it to be so far out of thermodynamic equilibrium, he, none-the-less, was a reductive materialist. As Adam Sedgwick himself chastised Darwin, “There is a moral or metaphysical part of nature as well as a physical. A man who denies this is deep in the mire of folly.”
Neither evolution nor quantum theory have anything to do with morality
Since Seversky apparently does not grasp even the basics of his own reductive materialistic philosophy that undergirds his Darwinian worldview, there is scant hope that he will ever understand the falsification of his reductive materialism by quantum mechanics in general and its falsification by quantum information in particular.
Once again, it’s a tad ironic that you seem to be completely unaware that quantum mechanics, far from falsifying reductive materialism, is reductive materialism taken to the n-th degree. It reduces everything to the properties of material or physical reality at the smallest scale we have been able to observe thus far.
Number one science itself, specifically advances in quantum mechanics, have now falsified reductive materialism as being true. Specifically, advances in quantum mechanics have now falsified hidden variables and have now also falsified ‘realism’ itself. (‘Realism’ is the belief that a material reality exists separate from our conscious observation of it.
Once again, if nothing exists until we observe it, what are we observing in the first place. Concerning the quantum world, to quote Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride “You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means”.
I hope the servers at uncommon descent have about 12 GB of free space for the cut and paste text BornAgain's about to lay down :D
Depends on the compression algorithm. His reposts probably only use a few bits.
They could just use a smaller font.
