    So, that’s how the neo-Darwinist are now trying to explain their way past the Cambrian explosion. Ha!

    That’s almost as rich as their fantasies of infinite universes.to explain away the mathematical improbability of macro-evolution.

      Pete, I assume from your comment that you are a creationist. Everybody is entitled to their belief system of choice, but the Cambrian explosion had nothing to do with macroevolution, which can be defined as environmentally-forced (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macroevolution).
      Let me give you a concrete example: the difference between a mole and a bat is the single gene which controls the length of their fingers (bones rule because flesh grows over them to provide sustenance). In other words, the modification of just one gene can turn you from an underground burrower to a flyer (both, you’ll note, essentially blind).

        This is an undramatic example. I’m more impressed by the fact that the human genome and the yeast genome are 80 percent in common.
        Psalms 139:14. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

          Sorry, but no. It’s clear that the genetic differences between all form of post-Cambrian life are very closely linked. The point which I think Pete was making is that Darwinism doesn’t explain the gaps in the fossil record, which I refuted by pointing out the gap which is created by modification of a single gene.

    This identifies an opportunity to redistribute wealth. Call it a hardware capability tax and use it to fund steel, automotive, and other smokestack industries. This is similar to the relationship that already exists between brown energy and green energy. With these new taxes that punish the unfair advantage of technology on top of the burden of ObamaCare also be sure to add a battery of new regulations that require lots of time and money to demonstrate compliance. Pretty soon it will be the tech start-up that “desperately tries”.

    We’re going to be making better and better use of those hardware capabilities from here on out.-TAI
    Depending on who “We” is ya got that right. Heh heh.

  • Andrew Allison

    I’m disappointed that TAI still fails to recognize, as a brief examination of revenue/employee would demonstrate. that high-tech is not, and will never be, a significant source of jobs for residents of the USA. The future is personal services.
