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!

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 http://wasdarwinwrong.com/korthof73.htm 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, erno.eskens@isvw.nl . Zie https://www.isvw.nl/winkel/aap-zoekt-zin/

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

05.04.2015 07:49, Bill Carey from United States E-mail :

Your main point in your review seems to be that he should have included cellularity in his characteristics of life. He clearly defines life as starting before cellularity but after the simplest replication...specifically life started when replicating molecules could use energy from the environment to speed up their replicating, allowing stable persistence and complexification at a systems level within the constraints of the 2nd law of thermodynamics, which was new in the universe (at least here on earth). Cellularity, though perhaps the most important milestone toward modern life, is not a required characteristic of life, using that quite reasonable definition of life. I appreciate any comments... for instance, you might arbitrarily define life as having to start with cells, but that leaves out perhaps a billion years or so of replication and survival of the fittest, so I like Pross's take.
Cheers, Bill Carey

Dear Gert:

I have tried to find your direct email address on your website site, but without success. So I am using this message box to contact you- I hope it gets to you.

I assume you are interested in what I can send you.

After many turbulent years and much wasted effort,diversion and distraction there has been an important development which I wanted to communicate with you. It concerns "Ancestral Haplotypes, The Origins of Antibody Diversity and Soma-to-Germline Inheritance in Humans."

It has that quality described by Winston Churchill: " The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is."

If you can send me your email I can explain all this better.

Dear Sir,

First of all I want to let you know that I am impressed by your site. There is a lot to find out and enjoy here. :-)
Next, I would like to recommend the book 'Martinus, Darwin and Intelligent Design: A New Theory of Evolution' by Ole Therkelsen. It's not very well known in the field yet, but it gives a very interesting view on the topics mentioned at your site. If you like I can send you a free copy.
And please go on keeping this site a place worth visiting.

Kind regards,

Huub van Heesewijk, The Hague

You invoke the phrase to the effect that "genes control development." I would be thrilled to read your description of the specific mechanisms by which said genetic "control" of development operates, starting from the first step and avoiding infinite regress.
