Atom: Nonsense commonly makes sense to people who don't know any better.
|But the fact is, the rearrangement of atoms into human brains and computers and the Internet does not violate any recognized law of science except the second law, so how can we discuss evolution without mentioning the one scientific law that applies?|
Good god this boy is stupid.
|By the way, in an open system, isn’t machinery required to use the available energy to do useful and creative work? If so, machinery can’t come first, because machinery would be required to make that machinery.|
Gil, what are atoms and molecules? Well, dern it, if they ain't like little machines!
from el translacion:
So because a drunk guy stumbles around for billions of years we can rest easy? Rest easy about what? Oh, of course, the Bible is true, and Jesus will take us all to heaven (the right ones, I mean).
|[Ferrari]: From the point of view of the probabilities, yes, but we cannot guarantee that one will live long enough to see it. For example, for the drunkard to take one hundred successive steps forward [it is an uncertain walk], there are those who wait two to the hundred, for there are billions of billions of steps, and for the molecules of air there has to be tillions upon trillions of times (in reality many more than that, but it sounds bad) the age of and duration possible for the universe. So we can rest easy.|

To do just the opposite is also a form of imitation. - Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
