A recent Livescience article1 is entitled “The Galápagos Islands: Laboratory of Evolution.” It addresses, among other things, “unique examples of plant and animal life.” The islands contain a variety of biota (the animal and plant life in a particular area), such as the Galápagos giant tortoise, sea lions, the varieties of finches, waved albatrosses, penguins, marine iguanas, and hundreds of ... More...

Hoe embryonale ontwikkeling van invloed is op evolutie
Als er evolutie geweest is, dan moeten de ingewikkelde embryonale ontwikkelingsstadia ook geëvolueerd zijn. Inderdaad, de ontwikkelingstrajecten van de soort zouden cruciaal zijn in een dergelijk proces. Als we de evolutionaire bewering dat de soort vanzelf ontstond, moeten geloven, dan moeten heel veel embryonale ontwikkelingstrajecten op de een of andere manier een enorme verandering ondergaan...

Lucy’s bavianen wervel
De beroemde ‘Lucy’ (Australopithecus afarensis) is lange tijd een icoon van de evolutie geweest, die in musea en handboeken werd afgebeeld als een rechtop lopende aapvrouw, ‘gedateerd’ op ongeveer 3,2 miljoen jaar oud. Nu, meer dan 40 jaar na haar ontdekking in Ethiopië, hebben paleo-antropologen geconstateerd dat een van Lucy’s botten niet echt van haar...

Kijken als een insect
Als je ’s nachts wil zien wat er om je heen gebeurt, gebruik je een nachtzichtkijker. Nadeel daarvan is dat zo’n kijker zwaar is en een beperkte beeldhoek heeft. BAE Systems wil daar wat aan doen. Hiervoor keek men het parasitaire vliegje Xenos peckiieens diep in de ogen… en men stond versteld van wat ’ie... Read more »The post Kijken als een insect appeared first on Logos Instituut.

Wat is informatie?
Op het Achtste Europese Creationistische Congres in Zweden kwamen allerlei bijdragen op het gebied van Intelligent Design naar voren, die de evolutietheorie tot in details weerspreken. Hoofdzakelijk door het aantonen van diverse complexe irreducible mechanismen (niet vereenvoudigbare mechanismen, die onmogelijk darwinistisch te verklaren zijn) vooral op het moleculair biologische niveau. Overzien we deze bijdragen over... Read more »The post Wat is informatie? appeared first on Logos Instituut.

Information OrganizationA recent paper, authored by Winston Ewert, uses a dependency graph approach to model the relationships between the species. This idea is inspired by computer science which makes great use of dependency graphs.Complicated software applications typically use a wealth of lower level software routines. These routines have been developed, tested, and stored in modules for use by higher level applications. When this happens the application inherits the lower-level software and has a dependency on that module.Such applications are written in human-readable languages such as Java. They then need to be translated into machine language. The compiler tool performs the...

Ten Thousand Bits?Did you know Mars is going backwards? For the past few weeks, and for several weeks to come, Mars is in its retrograde motion phase. If you chart its position each night against the background stars, you will see it pause, reverse direction, pause again, and then get going again in its normal direction. And did you further know that retrograde motion helped to cause a revolution? Two millennia ago, Aristotelian physics dictated that the Earth was at the center of the universe. Aristarchus’ heliocentric model, which put the Sun at the center, fell out of favor. But...

Guess Who Wins?The title of John Farrell’s article in Commonweal from earlier this year is a dead giveaway. When writing about the interaction between faith and science, as Farrell does in the piece, the title “The Conflict Continues” is like a flashing red light that the mythological Warfare Thesis is coming at you.Sure enough, Farrell does not disappoint. He informs his readers that the fear that science could “make God seem unnecessary” is “widespread today among religious believers,” particularly in the US where “opposition to belief in evolution remains very high.”Indeed, this fear has “haunted the debate over the tension...

Pop Quiz: Who Said It?There are many fundamental problems with evolutionary theory. Origin of life studies have dramatically failed. Incredibly complex biological designs, both morphological and molecular, arose abruptly with far too little time to have evolved. The concept of punctuated equilibrium is descriptive, not explanatory. For example, the Cambrian Explosion is not explained by evolution and, in general, evolutionary mechanisms are inadequate to explain the emergence of new traits, body plans and new physiologies. Even a single gene is beyond the reach of evolutionary mechanisms. In fact, the complexity and sophistication of life cannot originate from non-biological matter under...
