Simulated evolution on a computer works but is no where near the gradual incremental process that is associated with Darwinian evolution. It's closer to dog breeding in terms of its computational complexity.

Similar quotes


Molecular evolution is not based on scientific authority. . . . There are assertions that such evolution occurred, but absolutely none are supported by pertinent experiments or calculations. Since no one knows molecular evolution by direct experience, and since there is no authority on which to base claims of knowledge, it can truly be said that . . . the assertion of Darwinian molecular evolution is merely bluster.

Michael Behe

Cultural evolution is Lamarckian and very fast, whereas biological evolution is Darwinian and usually very slow.

E. O. Wilson

I judge things from an evolutionary perspective "How does this serve and contribute to the process of our own evolution?" rather than think of good and evil in moral terms. I see the triumph of good over evil as a manifestation of the error-correcting process of evolution.

Jonas Salk

[The law of evolution states that] complexity increases in terms of differentiation and structure.

Kenneth Boulding

[Computer] programs to demonstrate Darwinian evolution are akin to a pinball machine. The steel ball bounces around differently every time but eventually falls down the little hole behind the flippers.
