“Homologous” and “Analogous” traits should be reconsidered as biological descriptors

“Homologous” and “Analogous” traits should be reconsidered as biological descriptors because they presuppose that gross evolution has occurred. We then encounter the circular logic of “we know evolution is true because of homology” and “we know homology is true because … Continue reading

God is both pragmatic and prescient

“Gertie” collapsed in 1940. I selected the replacement for “Galloping Gertie,” the 1950s-bridge, as an example of the need for both stability and elasticity. Darwin’s finches have been shown to “evolve” and “evolve back.” Such “oscillations” help illustrate my thesis … Continue reading

Dynamically Embedded Intelligence (DEI) can be observed throughout nature

Evolution is a component of Compositus Dei, not its driving force. Dynamically Embedded Intelligence (DEI) can be observed throughout nature. Just as the 1950s Tacoma Narrows Bridge was designed to accommodate high winds, so God has engineered genera to respond … Continue reading

Chimerization

In _The Haunted Bookshop and Other Apparitions_, Brian Stableford makes this statement about evolution and chimeras: “What’s an insect, after all, but a serial chimera? The genetic blueprint for making larvae must have been separate, once upon a time, from … Continue reading

Principles of Dynamic Determinism

Dynamic Determinism As we consider the collective optimization of genera through dynamic plasticity, it becomes increasingly clear that we are witnessing not the detritus of a “blind watchmaker,” but rather the craftsmanship of a prescient gardener. Evidence for Dynamic Determinism: … Continue reading

Harmony in Science

In art, and in the higher ranges of science, there is a feeling of harmony which underlies all endeavor. There is no true greatness in art or science without that sense of harmony. (Albert Einstein)

Dynamic Determinism

Dynamic Determinism draws from diverse sources such as Mendelian genetics, Dynamic Systems theory (Thelen and Smith, 1996), Newtonian physics, and neuropsychology. It can be likened, however, to a children’s card game with “crazy eights” or wildcards. Intrinsic genetic perturberators interact … Continue reading
