A Few Axioms and Definitions

I think the so called, “razor occam” or whatever it’s called is rather comical since in reality the opposite is really more accurate. That is that, The solution with the greatest element of mystery, not the fewest assumptions has the highest probability of accuracy. (But, it does have an application when it comes to Darwinism  ironically perhaps, and not to its benefit.) Anyway, here’s an axiom that you can bank on, “The accuracy of any scientific theory is inversely proportional to it’s ignorance of the universe’s Designer.” Therefore, “An accurate understanding of any aspect of the universe can only be revealed by it’s Designer.”  To carry this a little further, “The degree to which science can produce accurate conclusions is the degree to which those conclusions preserve the mystery of the answer.” As for definitions: Evolution- The creation myth popularized by Charles Darwin that suggests that all living things have and continue to create themselves by the spontaneous generation of novel genetic information and so-called “natural selection”. Science- The pursuit of understanding the universe by solely human means and therefore in effect the further obscurity of its mystery and reality. Wayne Hollyoak

Anchors

One of my favorite memories of my teenage years was all those summer days I spent out on the Severn River on my little sailboat. It sort of changed my perspective on that thing we call, “wind”. Boats are designed to operate on a liquid substrate and that means that drifting is what they do quite naturally. Whereas with the automobile, drifting on it’s solid substrate can be quite dangerous and as a sport, very demanding of man and machine. In a boat, one way to over come drifting is to “make headway”, or in other words, forwad motion. With my boat that could be achieved in 3 different ways: by rowing with oars, by letting the wind push it with its sails, or running its little outboard motor. Stopping a boat is not very easy most of the time. You can turn off the motor, let down the sails and pull in the oars and even if the wind is completely calm, the boat will continue to drift with currents, thermal convection, intertia and so-forth. So, every wise sailor keeps an anchor and a length of rope on board. The anchor lets you tether your boat from a more or…
