Hi Aurino,

>>>If the outcome of a process is controlled by logic then an algorithm must necessarily exist, even if we can't figure it out. You can't get a logical system to produce randomness, that is one of the few things in logic that are absolutely impossible.>>Assuming they didn't set up the experiment in a way that guarantees the expected results, there's one problem that needs to be addressed: how do they know that the observed evolution is not the result of the order that is embedded in the computer itself? Since a computer is a perfectly logical machine and you can get evolution out of it, doesn't that imply that evolution is the outcome of a logical process?>Life emerged and evolved, exactly the way we know it did. This proves that QM is not really random and that life is one of the by-products of the order that is inherent in the fabric of the universe. Theists 1 x Atheists 0.>This proves that QM is really random, that the universe is essentially paradoxical, and that life remains a mystery, an event with a probability as close to zero as it gets. Theists 1 x Atheists 0 again?
