Origin-of-Life Researchers Caught Playing With Toys

first_imgA “virtual primordial soup” cooks up life in a computer program in a “toy universe,” according to reporter Leslie Mullen at Space.com.  She wrote, “The power of computer processing could one day solve the riddle of life’s origin.”    EvoGrid is “a computer creation concept that would be a digital version of the primordial soup,” wrote Mullen.  It was “dreamed up by a group of international advisors and Bruce Damer, the founder of a research company that creates 3-D spacecraft and mission simulations for NASA and the space community.”  When he’s not simulating real space missions, he’s “constructing a model of a ‘toy universe’, which has approximate properties of the early oceans on Earth.”    Mullen’s comment that computer processing could one day solve the origin of life seems counter-intuitive.1  Aren’t computer processors built by intelligent design?  Actually, Damer is dreaming of two versions of EvoGrid: Damer envisions two possible versions of Evogrid: a hands-off “Origins” version, and an experimental “Intelligent Designer” edition that would allow people to tinker with the simulation.  Damer says the ID edition of Evogrid could include a “miracle module” that would allow users to play God in their attempts to create proto-life.  The Origins edition would be the focus of the science, however, with strict controls to shield the experiment from any guiding human influence.That may be too late.  He has visions of expanding EvoGrid into versions tuned for astrobiology and SETI.  He did not explain how a programmer can do tuning without any guiding human influence.  But he didn’t stop there; he wants biologists of the future to translate his digital organisms into real creatures.  Then he wants to create cyber-physical life forms that can colonize other planets.    Building real animals from toy models, though, may be a hard task for unguided processes.  Damer seems to understand that to a point.  “Life is more than the sum of its parts, and you can’t just throw the necessary chemicals together and expect a life form to emerge,” he said.  Mullen didn’t want to leave it there.  “However, researchers are hard at work trying to recreate all the biochemical steps necessary to synthesize a kind of proto-life in the lab, so perhaps this possibility is not too far over the horizon.”  And why not?  Mullen speculated that “other intelligent civilizations in the universe probably harness the power of evolution to solve difficult problems.”1.  The origin of life being envisioned is naturalistic – a chance product of physics and chemistry.Using intelligent design principles and calling it evolution should be a crime.  Calling evolution a power that can be harnessed makes Mullen a repeat offender.    Did you notice that the “Origins” version of EvoGrid (that is, the “science” version as opposed to the “ID version”) also has a Miracle Module?  Damen snuck it in under cover.  It was required.  Without it, the computer would just sit there and rust.  He plays EvoGrid like a theremin (an old musical instrument the soloist plays by moving his hands in the air).  He can claim he has his hands off, but while he is engaged in hand-waving, his ID vibes are controlling everything the computer is doing.    We hate to spoil the fun by revealing the secret during the magic show, but the audience deserves to know it is a magic show, not a science show.  These self-deceived teachers need to leave Toyland and get back to work.  Their toy should not be called EvoGrid, but just GRID – Growth Requires Intelligent Design.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Google Drive Crashes For “Significant Subset” Of Users

first_imgCloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Tags:#Cloud Providers#Google#google drive Google’s cloud-storage service, Google Drive, went down early Monday morning, and returned about two hours later.Officially, Google Drive went down as of 7:17 AM Pacific time, according to Google’s status page. At 9:35 AM PT, Google said it had been resolved. During the outage, however, the other services within the Google Apps cloud – including Gmail, Calendar, Google Talk, and Google Documents remained online. markhachman Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Related Posts So far, Google hasn’t provided an explanation, but has acknowledged the problem. “We’re aware of a problem with Google Drive affecting a significant subset of users,” Google posted at 8:10 AM PT. “The affected users are unable to access Google Drive. We will provide an update by 3/18/13 9:10 AM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.”Update 9:19 AM PT: Google looks like it’s on its way to fixing the problem. “Google Drive service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users within the next 1 hours., it added at 8:55 AM. “Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change.”Update 9:49 AM PT: “The problem with Google Drive should be resolved,” Google said. “We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support.”What this meant for users is that if you wanted to create a new document or spreadsheet, you can – you must simply save it to your own computer for offline editing. Unfortunately, that requires a user to have previously enabled offline editing.Google-formatted documents couldn’t be saved to Google Drive, and if you have a document saved on Drive that you or others wish to edit, you’re out of luck. Naturally, other files stored on Drive weren’t accessible. However, photos backed up automatically with Google’s Google+ service were accessible. It’s just part of the complex interdependencies within Google’s cloud services, and what happens when one service goes down while the others stay alive.Clouds FailAlthough we often talk about the cloud in idealized terms, the fact is that cloud services do fail, and when they do, they often fail in a very high-profile manner. The world’s largest cloud service, Facebook, stumbled in early January, and last week, Microsoft suffered an outage to Hotmail.com and its complementary Outlook.com service, which last week it blamed on an overheating datacenter. In 2011, RIM’s BlackBerry email service was down for days, and outages at Amazon’s cloud services have taken down customers including Netflix and others. (Of course, it’s also true that in-house services also fail, they just tend to make fewer headlines.)Now that Google solves the problem and restores service for its users, we’ll be forced to wait until Google discovers the root cause of the outage, and hopefully, publishes it. But the outage is yet another reminder that no one service is bulletproof, even for a company with the scale and knowledge of Google.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Shashi Tharoor praises Imran Khan gets trolled for affection towards Pakistan

first_imgHowever, the Congress leader’s comment has all the potential to spark the once doused yet alight Tipu Sultan debate back into politics during the time of Lok Sabha elections, especially with the BJP in Karnataka.Since the Congress government of Karnataka in 2015, led by Siddaramaiah, had introduced Tipu Sultan Jayanthi (birth anniversary), there have been several protests against this.Several people took to social media to express their views of Tharoor praising the Pakistan PM.Here are some reactions:- Stop endorsing Tharoorji Tippu, an admirer of Hinduism Affection for Pakistan? Tipu Sultan will always remain a hot topic for debate Not a hero! Shashi Tharoor speaks at an event on the third day of the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival in the Indian city of Jaipur on January 23, 2016Rohit Jain Paras/AFP/Getty Images [Representational Image]Congress candidate from Kerala’s capital city Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor praised Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday for remembering the death anniversary of Tipu Sultan.The senior Congress leader’s praise comes after PM Imran Khan tweeted saying, “Today 4th May is the death anniversary of Tipu Sultan – a man I admire because he preferred freedom and died fighting for it rather than live a life of enslavement.”Shashi Tharoor retweeted the Pakistan PM’s post saying that he personally knows Imran Khan’s interest in the history of the Indian subcontinent. “He read; he cares. It is disappointing, though, that it took a Pakistani leader to remember a great Indian hero on his punyathithi,” read his tweet.last_img read more
