Intelligent Design Theory: Why it Matters
Jay Richards examines a new scientific orthodoxy that challenges Darwin's
materialistic views. From Intelligent Design, February 25, 1999.
We now have a reliable scientific method, formalized by mathematician and philosopher William Dembski (in The Design Inference , Cambridge University Press, 1998), for detecting designed objects and distinguishing them from the products of chance and impersonal laws
Scientists already use the design inference intuitively in fields such as cryptography, archaeology and forensics
Article drawing information from several sources, with an emphasis on Paley's
design argument for the existence of God.
It's certainly reasonable to make the inference that this isn't the random product of unguided nature, but it's the unmistakable sign of an Intelligent Designer." Walter Bradley, quoted in The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel, p110 (The human genome, has 80, 000 genes arranged in 3 billion DNA molecule pairs.) Another modern version of Paley's watch is the '', the fact that the physical constants of the universe are 'just right' to support life - the universe 'appears' designed to support life
the inference we think is inevitable, that the watch must have had a maker -- that there must have existed, at some time and at some place or other, an artificer or artificers who formed it for the purpose which we find it actually to answer, who comprehended its construction and designed its use

Dembski How can we identify events due to intelligent causes and distinguish them from events due to undirected natural causes? If we lack a causal theory, how can we determine whether an intelligent cause acted? This book presents a reliable method for detecting intelligent causes: the design inference

Deep Inference and the Calculus of Structures
The calculus of structures is a new proof theoretical formalism. It exploits a
top-down symmetry of derivations made possible by deep inference.
/ Deep Inference and the Calculus of Structures Deep Inference and the Calculus of Structures Quantum Bio-Cryptography for Nano-Security This page tries to be a comprehensive account of the ongoing research on deep inference
Deep inference started as a personal project, but, at this point, I'm struggling to keep pace with all the developments
NEW has built a graphical proof editor in Java, called, for the Maude modules written by ; this means that one can interactively build and find proofs in several deep-inference systems
NEW has been invited to talk about Deep Inference and Its Normal Form of Derivations at the special session of in Swansea (30 June&5 July, 2006)
NEW I will teach a course on Proof Theory and Deep Inference at the summer school in Málaga (31 July&11 August, 2006)
Contents This page contains: Other pages contain more detailed information: Papers, Lectures and Theses 1Introduction Deep inference is a new methodology in proof theory , which is the discipline that studies mathematical proofs
Deep inference is about designing deductive systems and formalisms with excellent properties of analyticity, proof complexity and semantics of proofs

In this article, the author discusses how Bayesian inference can be used to build an online PHP-based wizard that guides a user through the process making a medical diagnosis
This three-part series features interesting applications designed to help you appreciate the power and potential of Bayesian inference concepts

Paley's formulation of the teleological argument
Excerpts from his 1800 work, Natural Theology. Gary King
Homepage of Gary King, Professor of Government at Harvard University focusing on
quantitative methods.King's work can be found categorized by type (recent writings, published and books, public , and software ) or alternatively by research areas: : Methods for detecting and reducing model dependence (when minor model changes produce substantively different inferences) in inferring counterfactuals (such as predictions, what-if questions, and causal effects)
: How the same unified theory of inference underlies quantitative and qualitative research alike; scientific inference when quantification is difficult or impossible; research design; empirical research in legal scholarship
: Development of a unified approach to statistical modeling, inference, interpretation, presentation, analysis, and software; integrated with most of the other projects listed here
