On the latest Dallas Convention on Science and Religion, Discovery Institute physicist Brian Miller gave a terrific speak on the convergence of biology and engineering. It’s up now on YouTube and eminently worthy of being shared. Miller’s theme is that “you see the identical engineering rules in human engineering as you see in life.” Humorous that that must be the case when you think about engineering is clearly all clever design. 

The purpose about engineering will not be merely Dr. Miller’s private view — it’s the perception behind an rising scientific subject, techniques biology, that analyzes how dwelling techniques work with their “very clear design logic,” together with “pre-programmed or pre-engineered responses” to the atmosphere. Programs biology is rapidly displacing impatient dismissals of supposed “poor design” in life — “how cr*ppy our shoulders are,” for instance, within the phrase of 1 journalist who took instruction from biologist Nathan Lents. (See Jonathan Wells’s submit on that right here.) Miller examines a variety of fascinating particular illustrations together with the celebrated eyeless cavefish, which he “used to assume was an absolute win for microevolution.” He refers on the finish to a well-known paper by physicist Eugene Wigner, “The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Arithmetic within the Pure Sciences.” Brian want to write a follow-up, he quips, “The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Engineering within the Organic Sciences.” Watch the entire lecture now:
