    oHooligan @ #24,

    Didn’t consider the debug issue, and mapping PRNG, thanks! I appreciate the info about RND info for Linux, and the quote too.

    How difficult would it be to build a tiny integrated circuit item with let’s say, a gas atom bouncing around, or groups of atoms, to close a circuit in a container with surface area (multiple potential…[Read more]

    cbrown @ #22,

    Thanks (Ta).

    When various scientists in various fields muse on the topic of evolution, is there an etiquette or formality that is agreed upon between the various individuals (a physicist, a geologist, a biologist, etc.), to understand where their ideas are originating based upon their field of study and the trophic level of…[Read more]

    “I can understand how a backlash happened against GM,” Ramakrishnan said. “But the solution is not to ban GM, it’s to take it out of the hands of a few corporations.” I would be interested to know what ideas he has in mind to actualize his suggestion?

    In opposition to GM crops, one frequent argument I see in the public is the idea that feeding v…[Read more]

    Regarding Telomeres, I’ve often wondered about diet and its apparent relationship with the increased longevity of a mouse – living on a reduced calorie intake. Is it feasible that a reduced calorie intake causes the cell (organ and body) expresses genes to slow down its metabolism to conserve energy expired to repair and maintain homeostasis, and…[Read more]

    Missed today’s Dawkins’ AMA on Reddit, typing comments on this forum, but found this Nightwish music video:

    Stafford @ 13,
    Maybe somewhere along the coastal east side of Scotland/England?

    Here is a bug note to the technical moderators of the web forums. Lately when I type a comment and activate the radio button “Post Comment” my text disappears and with it the edit window, ten minute timer, and delete option. Over time the comments have always been posted.

    • Hi Jeremy

      It’s not a bug. Posts containing multiple links are usually put aside by the spam detection system, pending moderator approval. No need to resubmit them – they’ll be approved as soon as one of us is online.

    Stafford, how’s the DNA book? It’s nice that Watson made comments about Rosalind Franklin, considering her work.

    eejit (#3), Thanks for the note about Xenophanes (570 – 475 BC).

    I should confess that my comment about Aquinas may be imprecise because it’s an old memory, somewhere from around 2008 or 2011. I think the archaeological find was s…[Read more]

    Metalcore’s compression (limiting audio frequency below and above levels of distortion/clipping) for their instruments of a recent tune was nice. I’m not sure what the term on the street would call it, but the grumbling vocals never really pulled me into a metal tune because I prefer a more melodic and harmonic lyric on top of the raw energy of…[Read more]

    I’d like to read a book written by Dawkins titled: Chemical Intelligence and the Gene.

    Alan4discussion, or anyone, please feel free to critique my ideas and writing. I was hoping weak arguments and ideas would be challenged.

  • Jeremy posted a new activity comment 4 years, 2 months ago

    Alan4discussion,

    At some point in the future I will sit down to read Mr. Dawkins’ books. If I had read The Selfish Gene I would be able to more accurately reference it. Until such a time I will have to rely on what remains of my education and imagination, to say what I am trying to express. [A car accident sort of turned my brain into an etch…[Read more]

    “Selfish”, might be a gesture of creative liberty to explain the DNA’s axioms of chemistry and physics, or what I call chemistry and physics. For folks who don’t want to study, I offer an idea I call Chemical Intelligence, that is if I can get my project off the ground. If Dawkins can say “selfish” for the random process of chemistry (inferring…[Read more]

    A decade ago I purposed an idea to some friends, to artificially obtain eggs and sperm from polar bears to be used to impregnate land bears (grizzly bears), in mass, numbering in the several thousand plus children along the coastal polar ridge line. The premise, that when the polar ice returns, in the who-knows future of hundreds/thousand of…[Read more]

    Edit for previous message #3:

    To count test plates with a letter exceeding 26 tests (petri dishes) I would have used multiple letters, by repeating a letter (e.g. A3zg2ZZB403).

    Modern day sailors trying to navigate across the north Atlantic passage, from Ireland to Greenland, using materials, and ship designs, that were common during Saint Brendan’s era, or somewhere thereafter, could replicate nearly everything save the environment and the animals living in it. The now extinct auk (sea bird) was explained, in one book…[Read more]

    Thank you Penguin team for the effort to revive Mr. Dawkins’ programs. A few months ago I read about this project. It’s nice to finally be able to see it and to use it.

    I’m curious to know, if anyone has insight, if the program’s randomness between generations is arbitrary, by chance, or is it inherited within certain reappearing designs…[Read more]

    Alan4discussion,

    Regarding Ergotism and Saint Anthony’s Fire, to what degree do you suppose trends in the business market (Feudal system) may have enhanced the proliferation of the sickness, if at all, assuming mills and storage silos became too big to expeditiously deliver rye, from the farm to table? If the farm crops had been smaller, along…[Read more]
