    There are no naturally-occurring Martian rovers.
    No, it doesn't. Maximum web integrity would involve a very dense, solid web. Spiders don't build those. They build tenuous, easily-damaged structures.
    Yes. You're only wrong about what is "efficient" for a spider's web.
    Where did those different patterns exist before humans used them?
    No. Evolution doesn't do that. Lots of things are very inefficient in evolution.

    Are you willing to learn anything new about evolution, or are you going to tell me I'm wrong? Or will you just ignore this and keep right on believing what you believe?
    Word salad.
    "More and less" is not a differential equation. Come on, Write4U. You've looked up "differential equation" on wikipedia before. You have even cut-and-pasted definitions across to this forum. Didn't you read those definitions in the process of doing that? Did you not understand them?

    What about the conversations we had with you previously, after you misused the term "differential equation"? Did you learn anything from those conversations? Or have you forgotten them? Or did you simply ignore them, to go on believing what you believe, regardless?
    If "aerodynamics" is the formal study of flight, then birds and insects don't use it.
    Yes. That suggests that they have some sort of intuitive mathematical sense or heuristic "built in" by evolution, which is similar to something you said earlier about bees. However, they aren't getting out pencil and paper and solving equations. They aren't "doing maths". Also, experience counts for lot here. Lots of animals learn from experience.
    It is not.

    Do you recall previous discussions on what a mathematical function is? Or did you ignore those, to go on believing what you believe?

    It's one thing to make a mistake once and then learn how to do better next time. It's another to keep making the same mistake over and over, never accepting correction. It's pathological or, at best, hopelessly stubborn.
    If only you were able to convince anybody else of your views. But that would require having a reason, for starters.

    Thank you James, for your concern. No need to worry. I am doing just fine.

    It is you who insisted I use "my own words" and I do. If that is confusing to you I am sorry.
    I do appreciate your interest and in time you will find that I have been making some valid observations and you will say, "wait, isn't that what W4U was talking about?" and little by little you will see the simple truths in my posits.
    Do you realize the volume of posts I am responding to? I do have a life apart from SF. Be patient! In time all your wishes will be fulfilled ...

    No, this is based on the premise that there is no irreducible complexity.

    Yes and I will refer you to the article I quoted.
    You are demanding that I claim authority, but I won't. That's why I cite authoritative articles. If you don't read them you will have no clue what I am talking about. Those quotes are the proofs supporting my posits.

    Yes, that's your problem. You make no claims other than that I don't know what I am talking about (drivel).

    Fact is that you contribute very little to the conversation at all, other than rejecting all propositions that require some time in reading the supporting materials to gain clarity in my condensed posits. I see no reason to post my own version of that which has been extensively posited by knowledgeable people. The reading time remains the same regardless of who is the author. Perhaps you missed that equivalence.

    Talking about time, tell me where do you find time?

    Does the future already exist? If not where is future time located?

    And for once I insist you answer that simple question.

    That is a misleading statement and it is wrong.
    The science of aerodynamics is a formal study of that subject. But aerodynamics exist without human symbolisms. It's part of the mathematical universe.

    What Is Aerodynamics?
    https://www.nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/5-8/features/nasa-knows/what-is-aerodynamics-58.html

    And I'm sure birds are familiar with the effects of aerodynamics, without human assistance. I believe most birds have aerodynamic physical properties.

    And from what library did you get your information? You did not have to do research? You knew it all before it was even published.

    Google is a reliable search engine for a range of subjects , including references to scientific literature.

    I refer to and cite science in support of my understanding on a scientific subject, no more no less.
    Is a lecture by a respectable scientist on YouTube any less respectable than the live lecture being filmed?

    What is it with this exclusivity, if you don't know it you're stupid, if you research it you're a pain.

    If you have nothing to contribute, why not sit back and watch the conversation. You might learn something.

    This has nothing to do with quantum creationism.

    Note: if it's not about the quantum realm, it's not about quantum creationism.

    Please stick to the topic.

    It's all well and good supporting your claims with articles and papers, but you need to actually explain the relevance of them, and show how they support what you're saying. You don't do that. You just post article after article and leave it to us to guess a relevance, which is usually absent from the outset.

    Tldr: you're really not helping yourself.

    My bold below.
    A librarian was asked what is Quantum Creationism? She replied,"middle shelf under Q."

    That’s all you're doing, pointing to things with quantum in the title and doing little or nothing to explain your supposed point. It seems when you do try, you only show how much you misunderstand things. Any person trying to explain where you are misunderstanding, will be met, from you, with another Q item from Google, again with no explanation of connection to your supposed point.

    You're absolutely right, but either he's incapable of understanding your point or, possibly more likely, given the length of time this has gone on, he doesn't care because he just wants the exchange to continue, regardless of its content.

    We're not really dealing with a person able to carry on a discussion, any more.

    Without knowing why, some find a Pseudoscience sub-forum a great comfort blanket.
    Wallowing in the comfort that their talking real science because their on a science site.

    Well, so much for a rational response. I suppose this embarrassing dumpster fire of a thread can now be closed.

    And we can place our bets on what thread Write4U will light upon to hijack next............

    Then why don't you explain it to me.

    p.s. If you are going to lecture me, you can start by using proper diction.

    To all the critics, if I don't know what I am talking about and you do know what we are talking about, why don't you explain it to us all. Wouldn't that be wonderful. We might all learn something.

    But, ...alas.... I am the only one actually trying to find a common denominator in all the creative processes that go on in the universe, hoping that some particular universal process might shed light on that "very interesting" question.

    I am not getting much help, am I?
    How can I hijack a thread that has no other posts but mine? The religious perspective was dealt with in post #1

    What aspect do you want to investigate? I am open to suggestion.
    But I am still waiting for some else to test deep waters. Closed minds.

    Your first post on this thread was no. 166, made some 6 months after the thread was opened.

    It was an attempt to hijack the thread onto your OrchOR obsession, which has nothing to do with creationism of any kind.

    Or elegant scientific poetry. Art is in the eye of the beholder.
    Oh, James, yes I understood the process, it's part of mathematics, remember? The question is if you understand the probabilistic relationship between self-organization and spaces, raw materials, and time.
    Naahh... it's all about "differential equations" and the function applies lies between.
    Wrong, it is the "science of aerodynamics" that is a formal study. "Aerodynamics" are the abstract mathematical rules by which evolution creates different size and shape wings on birds.
    Yes they are doing maths. We call it "applied mathematics".
    Anything that relates and influences something else in a regular way is a pattern. Patterns are mathematical objects.
    No, I decided that my perspective is more expansive than yours.
    Unless I'm the one who is right, from my perspective. All you do is comment on the different perspectives from which I look at natural phenomena.
    How about a common goal of "gaining knowledge" in a self-referential universe.
