All that may impress people who read your comments at a cursory glance and are intimidated by the scientific sounding tone. But nothing in what you say has anything to do whatsoever with validating the theroy of Darwinian evolution. Whereas Gic may witness the execution "according to the beautiful mechanisms within evolution by natural selection," another scientist may witness this esame execution according to "the beautiful mechanisms intrinsically woven into the fabric of nature by an ominoptent God." The reality of evolution within individual species and the occurrence of natural selection to a certain degree do not in any way translate into proof of Darwinian evolution.Nebelpfade said:Fundamentalist evolutionary thinking? I personally know that GiC has worked with evolutionary algorithms, which are built upon and execute according to the beautiful mechanisms within evolution by natural selection. It provides an amazing insight into the abstract and theoretical aspects that shape nature, but at a more simplistic level. In evolutionary computing, through the fields of artificial development and the optimisation of fitness functions, we are nearing a point where perfect biological simulations could take place. When you are surrounded by this, it isn't fundamentalist thinking. It is striving for, refining and truly understanding every aspect of one of the laws of Nature in ways we could never do before the advent of computing.Gebre Menfes Kidus said:And Gic's answers are irrelevant in regard to the question of the OP. So either you and he are idiots, or purposely deluding people, or both. I don't see you as an idiot, but as someone who isn't able to shake themsleves free of fundamentalist evolutionary thinking.
We have a greater understanding of evolution than we even do of gravity (just look at the rivaling theoretical camps within quantum gravity), yet evolution is the one that is attacked.
