How can we measure evolution via blind and undirected processes?

Funny how he's never at a loss when it comes to measuring bits in a fruitcake or whatever the hell else...

Even if he has a hotkey for 'blind, undirected process', and 'BTW ID is not anti-evolution', and 'YOUR position has no evidence' and 'obvioulsy', why does he not get bored out of his tiny mind making the same point over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over? .... he's been unusually loquacious over at TSZ - even though they were just pastings from his blog, I'm impressed he managed to string a few extra sentences together in composing them originally.

Then this straight-to-Guano return to form ...

I know where I get my posts from, thanks. They are relevant and there isn't any need to re-invent what has already been said. What questions pertaining to ID have I answered? That there are delusional wankers like you who have nothing and can only spew ignorant nonsense. Yes we can look back through my blog and find a bunch of cowardly evos, like you.

Hee hee!

Is anybody aware of the upcoming Marks, Behe, Dembski, Sandford book Biological Information: New Perspectives.

I wonder what drove Springer to publish it. Maybe because the title of the conference was simolar to those organized by the Novartis Foundation New Perspective series. (ETA: my mistake, actually only on of the Novartis meeting titles contained "New Perspectives")

According to the site you linked to it sells for $179 a pop. That's an awful lot of scratch for a collection of the same idiotic bullshit and lies they've been peddling for the last 15 years.

You know there will be idiots willing to pay these clowns to see the circus again. It will be like how after L. Ron Hubbard died the Scientologists took random chapters from his various books, combined them, and published them as brand new undiscovered works.

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

It looks like the Darwinists other than ThoughtSpark have been struck dumb.

I dont think so I assume that most of us believe that the question is just a provocation, and utterly malformed. But nevertheless, I will answer the question:

Materialists generally believe that rape is wrong.

Certainly there are various lines of reasoning to argue why materialists believe that rape is wrong, but there is no doubt that they believe it: there is no movement to promote rape in secular countries, rapists are despised and condemned in agnostic societies, etc.

In the spring of 2011, a diverse group of scientists gathered at Cornell University to discuss their research into the nature and origin of biological information. This symposium brought together experts in information theory, computer science, numerical simulation, thermodynamics, evolutionary theory, whole organism biology, developmental biology, molecular biology, genetics, physics, biophysics, mathematics, and linguistics. This volume presents new research by those invited to speak at the conference.


Is there any coverage of this symposion?

Probably. Also Dieb posted what appears to be the very first response to that thread (hard to tell with banninations and dissappearinations all over the place.) Dieb also has a very reasonable response that has not yet appeared (still in moderation.) I also have a response but it is also in moderation.

Not like it is news but Barry's editing (by filtering responses and bans) of the responses unless it says what he wants is disingenuous and despicable.

I notice the assclown are still trying to paint the picture that this meeting was sponsored by Cornell, one of the top engineering schools in the country. In fact the conference had zero to do with the school. The IDiots merely rented some publicly available hall space there.

ETA: I'll bet a bottle of single malt scotch the clowns still don't define "biological information".

Biological information has been defined:

Quote
Biological specification always refers to function. An organism is a functional system comprising many functional subsystems. In virtue of their function, these systems embody patterns that are objectively given and can be identified independently of the systems that embody them. Hence these systems are specified in the same sense required by the complexity-specification criterion (see sections 1.3 and 2.5). The specification of organisms can be crashed out in any number of ways. Arno Wouters cashes it out globally in terms of the viability of whole organisms. Michael Behe cashes it out in terms of minimal function of biochemical systems.- Wm. Dembski page 148 of NFL



In the preceding and proceeding paragraphs William Dembski makes it clear that biological specification is CSI- complex specified information.

In the paper "The origin of biological information and the higher taxonomic categories", Stephen C. Meyer wrote:
Quote

Dembski (2002) has used the term complex specified information (CSI) as a synonym for specified complexity to help distinguish functional biological information from mere Shannon information--that is, specified complexity from mere complexity. This review will use this term as well.

I don't want to stop it from being published, but there is the obvious suspicion that Springer are being duped (or worse), so it would be good to get the story straight.

Mind you, this might be a good few months to bury news.

Do Materialists Believe Rape is Wrong?

Short answer: yes, rape is wrong.

Long answer: Barry, you disgusting prick, rape is wrong.

Hard for his "materialist friends" to answer considering a) he doesn't have any and b) he's banned the materialists who would actually argue with him.

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

It looks like the Darwinists other than ThoughtSpark have been struck dumb.

I dont think so I assume that most of us believe that the question is just a provocation, and utterly malformed. But nevertheless, I will answer the question:

Materialists generally believe that rape is wrong.

Certainly there are various lines of reasoning to argue why materialists believe that rape is wrong, but there is no doubt that they believe it: there is no movement to promote rape in secular countries, rapists are despised and condemned in agnostic societies, etc.

Sure. It's easy for a materialist to note rape is wrong. All a materialist has to note is that we feel empathy and do not <i>enjoy</i> making someone else feel the way rape makes a victim feel. It's that simple Barry.

Oh...and because you're a dimbulb, we do indeed care about how others feel because we care about how we feel ourselves. See the definition of the word empathy dipbean.

And no, it does not require some external source to feel empathy; it merely requires the mental perspective ability to place yourself in someone else's shoes, which most people learn as part of adolescence.

ETA: Oh...and to answer Barry's question - that's easy too. Humans have the capacity to empathize about other humans; cross-species empathy is difficult if not impossible. Why? Because assigning human emotions, thoughts, and social perspectives to other species has been demonstrated to be inaccurate at best and outright erroneous at worst.

That's not a definition of 'biological information' JoeTard.

Of course it is you fucking moron.

I'm sure that Barry likes you to talk dirty when you're pitching to him, but we're trying to have a conversation here, dude.
