Look, let me take the position that information came into the universe
from God. Now, the information was not in the form of a text book. It
was in the form of an entity such as a cell with DNA.
But, this is more than just information it has to be a cell that is
alive etc and it is a physical entity. Now, many years later, actually
maybee 3.8B years, we are sitting here trying to determine how this
information became more complex, and how the organisms became more
complex and ecologically placed. That is, each organism must have an
ecology of eat and be eaten.
Looking backwards, let posit two Models, labeled A and B.
The initial conditions were set just right so that the laws of nature
plus these initial conditions would lead to us.
The initial conditions were set appropriately but along the way God
introduced additional organims and information which lead to us.
Now Howard, the question is, how can be tell the difference between
Model A and Model B?
(I am ignoring the question of quantum inderterminacy.)
