Evolving Thoughts

Ian Musgrave has a brilliant post showing that Dembski’s revisiting of the old creationist canard that Dawkins’ 1984 Weasel program, designed to show that random variation and selective retention can “evolve” a target phrase, in this case Shakespeare’s “Methinks it is a weasel” (oops; I nearly had my own mutation there – I typed “methings”), is a load of old cobbler’s. Of course we expect nothing less from Ian*, and nothing better from Dembksi.

* But my title is better than his.
