Graeme Birds theory of the whale says that the whale is a gigantic floating foetus. I want to state that up front for google reasons so that it may be recognised as my original conception. But usually I find that others have thought about these things well before myself.
The main reasons that intelligent design will continue to be on the upswing are 1. The idiocy, dogmatism, and tunnel vision of the neo-Darwinists. 2. The sophistication and good humour of maybe half a dozen intelligent design advocates. If you favour straight evolution it is to these guys you want to go to, to get good ideas, to help flesh out your concept of evolution …..
“We may be able to make up part of the huge gap in our explanation of evolution by getting our cosmology right. This idea that we’ve only been around for shy of 14 billion years. And the concept that evolution is a one planet phenomenon is pretty stupid.
Moons grow to planets grow to stars grow to bigger stars. At any point of this process the large oblate spheroid can blow up, much of the material will be recycled, and a great deal of cellular complexity can be maintained in this process. Forget anything that Einstein said; he was completely full of shit. So what I am saying is once we get the cosmology right ….. well we cannot really answer Professor Behe’s objections. But still we can make up some of the gap perhaps. The mainstream is just so fraudulent. But they ought to make a choice.
Aether Changes Everything And Opens Up Both Theological, And Atheistic Possibilities.
If they want to hold onto some sort of Darwinist outlook they have to get rid of this abuse-based idea that they will make the aether an outlaw. No aether they reckon. Even though the next minute they will give you the wave-length of the colour purple. No aether they say but light has a measurable wave-length they will tell you in their next breath.
I Know Its Only Science
But I Like It
Such stupidity. That level of stupidity can only be reversed with punitive public service sackings. The acknowledgement of the existence of aether opens up the possibility for intelligent consciousness somewhat independent of matter. It opens up the possibility of a planetary spirit or a God of sorts. But veering back towards atheism … the existence of aether also opens up the possibility for a greater storage of information than could be possible, if we were relying on the existence of non-aetheric information alone. I am suggesting that aether can be retained within and around the cell and a much greater level of informational memory may be possible than what seems plausible under non-aetheric materialist ideology.
Scientific Cosmology, As Opposed To Cosmological Lies And Irrationality, Also Helps Make Up Some Of The Gap In The Theory Of Evolution, That Professor Behe Has Helped Uncover.
So aether honesty opens up more possibilities on both sides of this argument. The mainstream ALSO needs to rid themselves of the young-universe creation myth of the big bang. If they can get rid of these known lies maybe they can hold on to their Darwinian outlook.
But they should choose, because the mainstream is just making ass-clowns of themselves. If I agreed with the mainstream cosmology of course I would have to agree with Behe in this matter. There is no getting away from what he is saying here. Why even upset yourself trying to contradict Behe on this matter? Why bother? Why confront yourself with that level of cognitive dissonance? I just go with the flow people. I am no Christian but I have a Christian attitude towards the universe. The Christian attitude is “Its Gods universe and I’ll be happy with whatever it is I find out there.” Thats the scientific attitude.”
Where am I going with this? Every so often I run into someone who is doing a very good job of defending evolution. And its never anyone that is being placed in front of us in the media. Chris Hitchens was an intelligent fellow, but he was weak on science. Harris is a moron. Dawkins has turned rigid and blinkered in his dotage. He’s no longer any kind of committed scientist. PZ Myers is very low-grade. You find the better defenders quite by accident. Maybe you’d be able to run into them if you could catch people getting banned by mindless ideologue PZ Myers.
So as advertised to the public the theory is weak. And people who think about these things deeply will realise the superiority of the leading lights of the intelligent design crowd if they will give them a fair hearing.
Turnabout Is Fair Play. The Immortal Keith Richards Had Sympathy For The Devil.
Its Okay To Have Sympathy For The Intelligent Design Theorists. Who Are Whipping Our Sad Asses Right Now.
In our weight division mutations are a move towards DEVOLUTION and not whiggish evolution. It is said we pass on 100 more or so mutations every generation. Mutational devolution is thus the default philosophical position, or should be, in evolutionary theory, just as entropy has become a default notion in physics. Now entropy is WRONG in physics but we needed to find out WHY it is wrong. I’ve gone into that on this blog and elsewhere. But if devolution is not correct in human development, then we need to find out why.
Mutations in our weight division are broken genes. They are like viruses in the old-fashioned microsoft software. We can put off the implications of this a while longer by way of marrying outside our race (somehow I swing back to miscegenation despite myself) but that hasn’t solved the problem of how we might hope to avoid devolving into useless piles of sterile festering garbage, as would be natural, if the generational gift of broken genes is not somehow overmatched.
If something is replacing the broken genes with healthy ones, what could that something be? If something is increasing the information, as natural selection reduces that information ….. where might the pristine information be coming from?
I try to drive science on, not by standing on the shoulders of giants, but rather by pushing hard down on the heads of pygmies. So lets look at the following exchange to see where I may be coming from here:
So you see what I’m saying here? The evolution crowd have been giving us a lot of triumphalist happy-talk about the theory being in good shape. Its not in good shape at all. At least its not in good shape if judged by listening to these dummies the media gets to defend it.
What we are looking for is the little critters absorbing the information of even smaller critters, and if so in “object oriented” form. Here I am making an analogy to object oriented programming in computer science. We can do nothing with broken genes. We must find ourselves an environment wherein mutation is so numerous in such fast-breeding small critters, that real and useful information can actually be built up, and in object oriented form. And if this object oriented information can be absorbed into larger species …. then what facilitates this permeability, should it happen at all?
Where Did The Whale Get The Information From In Just 9 Million Years?
So for example we have the idea that the whale evolved from a small four-legged animal over the space of 9 million or so years. There is counter-evidence to this. And some may say the evidence is not that solid. Still it seems to be pretty good to me, and so I’ll take it at face value tentatively. The counter-evidence isn’t that powerfully strong. Its to do with finding an intact whale that dates to an earlier date then the evolving in-between species.
Now the first thing we might say about the whale evolution story … is that this progression is a form of evolution I call “New Niche Evolution” … When an animal in one niche goes into a completely different niche (in this case probably to do with evading a predator) evolutionary pressure, pushing the animal in one direction is pervasive. Plus an animal that retreats by running into the rivers ….. It achieves the partial but not total isolation necessary to push its gene pool one way. To push the adaptations of the species in one direction only. You MUST have the condition of partial but not total isolation to achieve this effect. This effect is equivalent to a longstanding intelligent breeding program.
(((((This is what some theorists think allowed us to evolve. Firstly we had the new niche evolution of coming down from the trees, where the trees, the river and the ocean met. This is my version of the aquatic ape theory. Then we had the new-niche evolution of repeated glacial periods. Many Christian theorists in this space say that there is no such thing as macro-evolution. I don’t go that far. All I say is that in big animals macro-evolution is fucking hard. Its not fucking easy. For the big animals there is only new-niche evolution and rolling holocaust evolution and they both involve partial but not total separation. I am constantly stunned by the glib assurance that Darwinists have in the reality and indeed the ease of evolution in larger mammals. But the reality is that evolution is anything but natural for the larger organisms.)))))
But heretofore, in the story of the whale being evolved over 9 million years …. We don’t have the knowledge on tap, as to whether the whale gained or lost genetic information. We feel surely that it must have gained information. But where from? In that weight division broken genes cannot be helpful. Broken genes are also lost information. We carry more genes than we really need; so was the proto-whale tapping into its extra gene pool only?
Directed Neotony A Huge Part Of Whale Evolution/ Gigantic Foetus Of A Four-Legged Animal.
Surely neotony was a huge part of this whale evolution story. Losing the adults hair, increasing the time growing, exaggerated brain development, all this kind of thing. That whale in someways is a gigantic unborn baby terrestrial. So directed neotony had to be a big part of this story.
But what about new information? Was it all old information used in different ways? Believe me this mutation business is complete bullshit and untenable. We can say conclusively that whale evolution had nothing to do with mutation. Or at least only a little bit and only at first maybe ………
Since we don’t look to mutation and broken genes to help evolution in bigger animals, we may have to look at pulling “object oriented information” out of the plankton. Plankton gives the information to the gut biome, and perhaps there are some stressful circumstances which may allow some chunks of information to be incorporated into the larger organism.
There has to be something that adds to the information that natural selection, and ambient mutational damage, is taking away. Now come on people lets be serious about this. There has to be that replacement information. Just as there must be pristine energy in the wider universe. Or there would be no energy at all and we would by now have all devolved to sludge.
Later I will suggest where the ultimate source of genetic information may be coming from, if its not coming from intelligent design; An idea that ought not be ruled out by any means. Here I am talking about a better arena than the surface of the earth for ultimate development of new genetic information.
Why am I doing this? I really have no stake in this rumble. I have no fellow feeling for my atheist colleagues? My view of physics opens up the possibility of intelligent design even without a supreme being? So why would I try and bridge the gap that has now opened up in favour of the intelligence design advocates?
I know its only science …… But I like it.
Sympathy For Intelligent Design ………. New Information Could Be Coming From The Aether And From Intelligent Consciousness Within.
How did we come up with matter in the first place?
The electrons, neutrons and protons didn’t just appear out of nowhere. In my theory first we had flux, then we had aether, then we had matter. Matter is an offshoot of aether. We know that the aether/electric/matter Nexus has produced consciousness. But what is there to say that conscious intelligence or pockets thereof did not precede the development of matter? And if we are conscious beings, and our consciousness is primarily to do with matter, but also to do with aether and electricity …. Then what is to say that we couldn’t have consciousness that was more aether-biased?
Now what I don’t think we can have is a universe-wide supreme consciousness. Since clear thinking would take such a huge being long periods of time. There needs to be some level of compaction to have real-time thought. The great theorist Nassim Taleb says that the paradox of the trinity is easily understood by Christians, though to all others its a straight contradiction. Taleb says that God being also Jesus allows God to have “skin in the game.” Skin in the game is a concept that the philosopher has written thousands of words about.
Thats fantastic theology. But any real God would have to reduce in size and scope from a solar system sized being, down to having a more constrained consciousness, just in order to function in something approaching real-time. And I mean this even when you take superluminal speeds into account. Because these speeds aren’t infinite. I think that entanglement has only been measured up to about 17 kilometres last I checked and these people cannot be trusted anyway.
Anyway we could easily have pockets of aetheric-matter based consciousness since its aether that has had longer to evolve. This is more a justification of animism than anything else. I’m not opening the door to any fantasy that any primitive fellow might ever have had, anytime. But when you see very good evidence the likes of which Michael Behe brought to light in 1996, that does justify opening the door to intelligent design. Because I’m not deluding myself that I’ve grasped back the lead Behe has gained on us, just in this one article.
Thats a lead that will probably take a century to pull back. Most of modern cosmology has to be ditched in order to do so.
