Re: How to build a worm

Now you've illustrated why our interactions tend to get contentious. You have a penchant for arbitrarily redefining terms you disagree with in order to trivialize them. Makes it hard to carry on a conversation.

Well, it used to be a [more]

Re: What Hath Chip Wrought?

I do admit I'm fascinated with the Tebow story, because you have a guy who completely sucks at QB, yet a significant fraction of people love the idea of him playing QB.

Come over to the dark side ... OEC!

Re: How to build a worm

You have a good point about definitions, but Coyne's definition may very well be the correct one. The "pure" nothing (where there isn't even a vacuum fluctuation to be found) which some people like to specify may be impossible. It may [more]

2. In any event, there are many different orders of infinity. When you talk about infinity, which one are you using?

Re: How to build a worm

Beats me, but I'm not sure how any of this is relevant to the question at hand. You assert that certain things are impossible (not simply improbable). I say you base that on intuition. You bring up black holes. Sorry, but you'll have to connect [more]

Re: How to build a worm

I'm just not a big fan of counter-arguments based primarily on intuition.

Okay, maybe a fine line here, but I'm not a big fan of intuition, either, so from where I'm sitting, it's common sense observation. Let's take good old Xeno, [more]

Re: How to build a worm

All you have is your personal experience. I submit that whatever experience you might have is going to be woefully inadequate to determining what can or cannot be when dealing with billions of years and billions of universes.

Well, [more]

Re: How to build a worm

It all occurs as dictated by the complex set of pre-existing natural laws. And note that when stars go nova, one goes from complex to simple.

Noted. Simple, to complex, back to simple. Not complex to simple.

Re: How to build a worm

Aside from evolution and perhaps the Big Bang, there aren't all that many natural examples of complexity arising from simplicity.

What about the formation of stars, planets, and galaxies from simple space dust and [more]

Re: How to build a worm

Can't. But you can make natural processes so implausible that it fails as an explanation. The more we peel the layers of complexity back on life, the more we find that need explanations.

That's the coin, Bryan. Not implausible, [more]

I posted the video in hopes that someone would point me to where evolution has documented the steps necessary. So far all I've gotten is the presumption of evolution:"Well, there are worms, so they must have evolved that way". [more]

What Hath Chip Wrought?

The only thing I can see, is a dramatic reduction in commentary from the local sports news reporters.

The circle drawer was intelligent, and most certainly intervened.

And if that were the I in ID, you'd have a point, but it isn't, so you don't.
