Information Theory, DNA and the Case for Intelligent Evolution – September 27, 2007

Why the Current Evolution / Intelligent Design Debate is sadly Misdirected… and a New Direction of Inquiry

The strident arguments over Evolution and Intelligent Design have overshadowed radically important advances in our knowledge about evolution. This talk reveals parallels between biological evolution, software programming and concepts in Quality Control, to shed new light on an old debate:

  • Does either Creationism or textbook Darwinism qualify as science? – It may surprise you to know why, or why not
  • A Nobel Prize-winning experiment begun in 1944, showing how evolution really works. (How come they never told you about this in Biology class?)
  • Modern communication tools that were already in DNA long before we got here: Error checking mechanisms, compression algorithms, start and stop bits, pointers and redundancy
  • Evolution: It’s anything but random – it’s an Engineered process
  • Finally, something both Creationists and Evolutionists can agree on! And an opportunity for new conversations between science and religion.
