Beste Gert, ik had hier graag nog 'ns een discussie gezien over de Aquatic Ape Theory. Eigenlijk een minder correcte term: beter ware Littoral Theory of Coastal Dispersal Model of zo. Het is nu wel duidelijk dat het niet gaat over australopitheken of mensapen, maar over archaïsche mensensoorten (H.erectus en verwanten) die zich in het begin van de IJstijden verspreidden langs de kusten van Africa en Eurazië, en van de kust langs de rivieren de continenten binnentrokken. Google bv. "Ape and Human Evolution 2018 made easy" of "not Homo but Pan naledi" + referenties. MVG --marc

Hi Ed, thanks for your comment!

You invented an imaginary person;
invented the word 'God';
invented a magic property 'Almighty';
and finally declared: 'God created hemoglobin'!

Ha! That's very smart! But, it is not science!

If you reject Foster's numbers about Hemoglobin ("The Philosophical Scientists"), why don't you give us numbers instead of words. What are the odds? You don't say and you don't try to---because you don't know.

OK, why proteins? OK why not fewer than 20 amino acids? OK why not less complex proteins that pick up oxygen?

It's a log way from 10 ^650 for your scientific materialism to make magic.

I'm not convinced. So it is God until proven otherwise.

Hi Donald, thanks very much for your post. You have done quite amazing engineering projects!

You wrote "... implausible that this allows a sufficient window for abiogenesis to have occurred on Earth".

How would you translate that into a scientific research project?
I think the way forward is doing experiments in the lab concerning the Origin of Life.

As I understand it, the origin of life on Earth has been pushed back by discoveries in Canada to at least 3.8 billion years. The first oceans formed around 4.4 billion years ago. There is some indication that banded iron formations could push the origin of life back further to around 4 billion years.
To me it is implausible that this allows a sufficient window for abiogenesis to have occurred on Earth.

By the way, I also harbor a number of unanswered questions about evolution in the Darwinian sense, although not being myself a biologist I cannot even dream of having a scientific answer to them. Anyway, I have just set about reading your page about Darwinism, which I will read as avidly as the one on information. What I like most in your texts is that you go straight to the essence of things and ask yourself the right questions. I find that so relieving!

I graduated in theoretical physics a long time ago, but have worked for 30+ years as a specialised translator for international organizations. In particular, my work at ITU led me to wonder about the essence of human language, and it has taken me almost 30 years to develop a formal theory of language as information. This very morning I came to the conclusion that Shannon's notion of information should be actually rebranded 'compressibility', so I launched a browser query with the words 'information definition compressibility'. The first result of my search was your site, which I have avidly read! Until now, nobody in the academic world seemed to care about my ideas, and I cannot tell you how exciting it is to find out that you have reached the same conclusion, though along a different line of reasoning. If only I could email you directly, I would try to expound on my ideas. I am sure you will be interested. Thank you in advance.

Hello, Mr. Korthof,

I would like to discuss a possible talk on a stage of TEDxBratislava 2017 but I cannot seem to find your e-mail address. Could you please get back to me via e-mail? Thanks in advance and sorry for potential spamming as I will definitely try some more ways of contacting you :)

Have a nice day,

Hi Gert,

I have written a review of Evolution 2.0 here:

Added a video about the "information challenge" creationists often point to as evidence for the impossibility of evolution along naturalistic lines.

Marshall's creationism is somewhat under the surface in this book. He argues for the inclusion of fields supposedly ignored by standard evolutionary texts, but he is clearly overstating his case here: Carl Zimmer's The Tangled Bank covers most if not all of these topics.

Perry Marshall: "How do you get a code without a coder?"

Question: How do you get a Coder from nothing?

Hi Frank Visser,

Thanks for the tip. We have heard that before: somebody stans high above both sides; does not belong to any one of them, and has the ability and expertise to be an impartial judge! :-)
and in the end appears to be an Intelligent Designer...
If indeed he concludes that "DNA is a code, there must be a Programmer", then why write a whole book? Dembski and many other ID-ers did it a long time ago.
Concerning improving neoDarwinism, we have seen that before too.
Maybe, when I have time left, have a look at the cheaper ebook version.

All the best,

Hi John Hislop,

it is good to hear the review was useful! Thanks for commenting!


09.01.2017 21:43, Frank Visser from Amsterdam E-mail Homepage :
Hi Gert,
Have you seen Perry Marshall's "Evolution 2.0: Breaking the Deadlock between Darwin and Design"?

He seems to argue for a broadening of the scientific conception of evolution, beyond the confines set by Dawkins c.s. (fair enough), but then ends up with a creationist agenda according to which, since DNA is a code, there must be a Programmer!

Still, perhaps it is of interest to you in determining where (if at all) "darwin was wrong".

I am a retired physics teacher catching up on my reading. I would like to thank you for your excellent review of Fred Hoyle's Intelligent Universe. I couldn't believe what I was reading and needed an expert's opinion. He was right on some things but not this!

Thank you for compiling all of this very excellent resource on one site. I have linked to it on my own site as it is very related to my own research and should be of much interest and use to others seeking scientific truth and understanding, particularly regarding biological evolution.

Thanks again

leuk dat U mijn pagina korthof73.htm hebt gevonden!

ik heb een aanpassing gemaakt.

Op de pagina refereert u naar een website over zomertijd en wintertijd. De informatie op die pagina is redelijk summier. Op de volgende pagina wordt de zomertijd en wintertijd uitgebreider uitgelegd en wellicht hierdoor interessanter voor uw lezers.

I believe I may have solved your problems. Oh Yeah? Yeah. I have thought about all this stuff for 45 years but because some people are creeping up on my ideas I have written it down in a book, What is Life? This was published a few weeks ago. I can email you a copy of the pdf. It is not big. Or it will soon appear on Amazon UK. Cheers

Beste Gert,
Heb je al eens gekeken naar mijn boek Aap zoekt zin, waarom we bewustzijn, vrije wil, cultuur en religie hebben? Als je vertelt over je site zul je zeker een recensie-exemplaar kunnen lospeuteren bij ISVW uitgevers, . Zie

Hopelijk ben je geïnteresseerd!
Met vriendelijke groet,

Dear Gert, thank you for your lucid reviews that are a service to the scientific community - and to me. Your phrase "the error is hidden by..." shows the value of a philosophy education. I do not know how to use these blog sites, but have email. In Christ, WDV
