Further to a previous post here at https://ayearningforpublius.wordpress.com/2017/03/08/can-information-such-as-movies-be-stuffed-into-dna/ Take a look at this latest report by clicking on the image above.
By now it seems obvious that many life scientists and researchers doing actual scientific work on life’s designs have bought into the theory of Intelligent Design. This seems counter to the mere “teachers” and popularizers of the Darwinian Theory of Evolution such as Richard Dawkins and Gerry Coyne.
“ … Intelligent design maintains that it is possible to infer from empirical evidence that some features of the natural world are best explained by an intelligent cause rather than unguided natural processes. Since ID relies on evidence rather than on scripture or religious doctrines, it is not creationism or a form of religion. ID restricts itself to a simple question: does the evidence point to design in nature? – … “ See more at: http://www.evolutionnews.org/2008/07/what_is_intelligent_design/#sthash.3EI2imgE.dpuf
In order to accomplish what these DNA/Computer researchers have done, it is necessary that they approach nature, in this case DNA, from the perspective that there are intelligent designs embedded in the DNA. And much like the old timers such as Johann Kepler they pursue and tease out these designs in their laboratories.
But don’t expect much in acknowledgement of such thinking, for several reasons:
- Darwinian thinking is so engrained in society, including the scientific community, that for many it has become an unthinking assumption and assertion.
- There is very real danger in publicly acknowledging or advocating Intelligent Design. Read my report on Ball State University & Intelligent Design to get a good idea of what is happening in our university system. Here we have a professor who was severely sanctioned for introducing the very idea of Intelligent Design, let alone advocating it in his course work. It’s called censorship.
Work such as described in these articles on DNA research undercuts Darwinian Evolutionary theory. But Darwinism is a “religion” and Intelligent Design is treated as heretical thinking. Do your own research and your own thinking here. When someone tells you that what you see in nature as design is only an illusion, only the appearance of design – question that thinking. Even if such thinking comes from the “smartest man in the world” such as a Richard Dawkins.
