Simplest and Clearest Argument for Intelligent Design

leave a comment »

“Mathematicians are trained to value simplicity. When we have a simple, clear proof of a theorem, and a long, complicated, counter-argument, full of hotly debated and unverifiable points, we accept the simple proof, even before we find the errors in the complicated argument. That is why I prefer not to extend here the long-standing debate over the first point [irreducible complexity], but to dwell further on the much simpler and clearer second point of my article, which is that the increase in order observed on Earth (and here alone, as far as we know) violates the laws of probability and the second law of thermodynamics in a spectacular fashion.
Evolutionists have always dismissed this argument by saying that the second law of thermodynamics only dictates that order cannot increase in an isolated (closed) system, and the Earth is not a closed system — in particular, it receives energy from the Sun. The second law allows order to increase locally, provided the local increase is offset by an equal or greater decrease in the rest of the universe. This always seems to be the end of the argument: order can increase (entropy can decrease) in an open system, therefore, ANYTHING can happen in an open system, even the rearrangement of atoms into computers, without violating the second law.”

Will this be the next state of warfare? Will we have gone to far? Will we survive? …… Has this already begun? A short flix with severe moral implications….

With the implementation of this Sci-Fi Weapon, The US Navy has created a game changing event.
Hypersonic projectiles that will obliterate the target. Once issues with heat and power have been dealt with, this weapon is expected to be standard on every ship class from destroy on up.

Kick @ss America!

Deus Ex: The Eyeborg Documentary

How a film maker became a cyborg and filmed the world of cyborg technology. What the future may hold we can only guess, but with this film we get a look at what is available today.
Robotic technology is not just for Androids. Now we Humans are incorporating these same technologies into the ourselves to not only repair, but to improve our conditions. We are evolving with the help of technology.

Changing the Face of History — Forensic Anthropologists Reconstruct First President’s Real Looks

leave a comment »

ScienceDaily () — Using 3D laser scans of sculptures and processing images with math-based computer software, forensic anthropologists are making life-size models of George Washington at ages 19, 45, and 57. An exhibit featuring the reconstructed images and models will open at George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in October 2006.

Engineers Grow nanolaser on silicon, paving the way for on-chip photonics.

Photonics

The famous University of California, Berkeley has found a way to grow nanolasers directly on a silicon surface, this should lead to faster microprocessors and sensor arrays which use more powerful optoelectronic methods. Nano technology is the manipulation of matter within the atomic and molecular scale. Photonics is in its pure form “The science of light”. It involves the generation, emission, transmission, and pretty much the control of light.

Our modern civilization has been demanding ever more increasing performance from electronics. This is pushing researchers into many directions. The researchers from the University of California, Berkeley have focused on harnessing the ability of light particles to carry greater quantities of data then more conventional electronic signals through the use of optical lasers at a molecular scale. Optical connections and pathways methods are looked to as a solution to bottlenecks within and between microchips.
