We’re some kind of Intelligent Desinger Phd Student Experiment?

Posted by pwl on March 14, 2009

Michael Ruse vs William Dembski on intelligent design. For more information read: “Debating Design” with essays demonstrating the intellectual hollownes of intelligent design.

“Are you seriously suggesting that we’re some sort of lab experiment of some alien phd student?” ~ Michael Ruse

When you make the argument that Life and even the Universe were created by an Intelligent Designer (aka god or gods or your invisible friend) you are making an assertion that a complex being designed us lesser beings and the Universe. This of course begs the question, “who designed the Intelligent Designer?” Until you can answer that you’re simply using your hand on your private parts for self gratification. No serious discussion can really proceed until that question is addressed.

On Radical Environmentalism

While we debate whether or not humans are the cause of Global Warming we are at the same time running the experiment. We are in the test tube.

“Science is never finished. Science is never certain. Every scientific statement carries with it a level of certainty.” – Greg

“How do you know which side to believe?” – Greg

Let’s check to see if Greg’s logic is delusional! Hey, he asks us to do so! So let’s do that…

His logic is too binary, too simplistic. His argument depends upon the argument being framed in simplistic terms. When reality is brought into the picture the argument falls apart. The world is much more fuzzy than presented in the video. Also, each solution has other reasons than AWG to do it thus the logic is totally faulty. Too many false choices presented in this video. Yes, his world is a world straight out of science fiction. Utter nonsense. Our future is not rows and columns, it’s much more complex thus it requires a much richer and more subtle representation system than four possible boxes. Thus “the only choice is [NOT] column A”!

The problem is that your way of representing the issues, problems, solutions, possibilities and realities is too limited leading to false conclusions that are needless.

Yes, you are wrong Greg due to simplistic logic disconnected from objective reality. Just like those with invisible friends.

What I like about his presentation is that at least he is willing to discuss the issues even if his methods are too simplistic.

My thoughts are that his arguments are too simplistic and thus don’t reflect reality however that’s how most people want their “political” choices presented to them: A, B, C, or D. Pro/Con. True/False. Row/Column. No deep thoughts. The problem is that over the long term this might not be a viable way of thinking and choosing or making political decisions since it too easily diverges from objective reality too far.

A deeper level of scientific argument with a richer representation and decision making methodology is required for the presentation of political choices that need to be rooted in hard science that reflects the actual objective reality.

What do you think about the logic presented in this video?

Ever Get the Feeling that Earth is Near the Center of a Target?

Posted by pwl on March 14, 2009

Target Earth

This image of our solar system’s asteroids sure freaks me out since it shows how precarious life on earth is in terms of the celestial game of billiards. Some say that the conditions are just right for life here on earth, and yes they are but it’s such a tiny pocket of life most of which exists in the thin layer of atmosphere or even thinner ocean layer. We exist in a bath tub of air and water that could get knocked around pretty darn good with any wayward space rock of sufficient size. Splat into earth and there goes life.

Contact between the Norse and the Aboriginal occupants of the Eastern Arctic

Posted by pwl on March 14, 2009

Out of the ColdOn January 22, 2008, in Gatineau, Quebec, the fourth in a monthly series of lectures on scientific exploration and discovery entitled “Out of the Cold: The Roy Koerner Lectures” featured Archaeologist Dr. Patricia Sutherland (Canadian Museum of Civilization). These lectures have been organized in recognition of International Polar Year and the 50th Anniversary of the Polar Continental Shelf Project. Dr. Sutherland examined the nature and extent of contact between the Norse and the Aboriginal occupants of the Eastern Arctic.

CO2, a yummy food for plants, increases 800 years after temperature rise!

Posted by pwl on March 14, 2009

Contrary to the latest bill of goods we’re being sold about “climate change” Carbon dioxide is a “convenient myth” rather than an “Inconvenient Truth.”

How can we distinguish between Natural Variation and Human Causes?

Posted by pwl on March 14, 2009

The legendary broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough was long unsure about the causes of the observed climate warming. In his documentary, The Truth About Climate Change, he sheds doubt and explains what convinced him.

Climate models based on purely natural processes such as solar activity and volcanic eruptions fail to explain the observed change in Earth’s climate in the latter part of the 20th century. Models factoring in the human impact, that is, the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, depict the transpired warming accurately, however.

The Hockey Stick Graph strikes at the heart of a great man and wins him over to the belief stricken side.
