Quote (CeilingCat @ Dec. 16 2018,19:55)  This is a couple of days late, but we've been blessed with an article from George Montañez, Assistant Professor in the Computer Sciences Department at Harvey Mudd College (which I believe is a real university and not a Star Trek episode) entitled, "The Unified Model of Complex Specified Information" by a Professor who's surely destined (or perhaps designed) to become the Einstein of ID: Quote  A Unified Model of Complex Specified Information
A mathematical theory of complex specified information is introduced which unifies several prior methods of computing specified complexity. Similar to how the exponential family of probability distributions have dissimilar surface forms yet share a common underlying mathematical identity, we define a model that allows us to cast Dembski’s semiotic specified complexity, Ewert et al.’s algorithmic specified complexity, Hazen et al.’s functional information, and Behe’s irreducible complexity into a common mathematical form.* Adding additional constraints, we introduce canonical specified complexity models, for which onesided conservation bounds are given, showing that large specified complexity values are unlikely under any given continuous or discrete distribution and that canonical models can be used to form statistical hypothesis tests, by bounding tail probabilities for arbitrary distributions. 
Details from Denyse d'Nord, probably the only philosopher in Christiandom capable of fully understanding the Professor, here.
* In other words, he's independantly invented zero. 
Unified TARD Theory. Basically what he did was take four little piles of stinking horseshit and make one big pile. That probably qualifies him for some sort of special shortyellowbus award from the DI.
On the positive side, it did increase the 2018 total number of ID papers published at BioComplexity from 2 to 3.
