Dr. Robert Marks: Active Information in Metabiology

On this episode of ID the Future, listen in as Casey Luskin talks with Dr. Robert Marks about his paper, “Active Information in Metabiology,” that was recently published in Bio-Complexity and critiques the ideas of mathematician Gregory Chaitin. Dr. Marks explains metabiology and the significance of “active information” for intelligent design.

Darwin as the Pinball Wizard: Talking Probability with Robert Marks

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Robert J. Marks, who has published two papers with William Dembski and another paper with Dr. Dembski and graduate student Winston Ewert. This was Dr. Marks’ first IDTF interview since Baylor University shut down his pro-ID Evolutionary Informatics Lab, now available at a third-party website, EvoInfo.org.

Well-Informed: Dr. Robert Marks and the Evolutionary Informatics Lab

Editor’s Note: After this podcast first aired, Dr. Marks’ website, originally hosted by Baylor University, was taken down in an act of censorship. You can read the story here and watch part of it in Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

In today’s episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Robert Marks about his work in evolutionary informatics at Baylor University. Marks explains that evolutionary informatics seeks to emulate evolution on a computer, allowing for new engineering designs to be developed. Unlike Darwinian evolution, this process does not advance gradually, and requires a certain amount of external information to be fed into the computer before the process can begin; in other words, the systems must be designed before the evolution can begin. This contrast fueled Marks’ interest in intelligent design, and has led him to critically analyze a number of evolutionary computer programs that claim to prove Darwin’s theories.

Baylor University Attacks Scientists for Questioning Evolution

Today ID The Future examines Baylor University’s decision to take offline the Evolutionary Informatics Laboratory website that had been administered by Dr. Robert Marks, Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Baylor. The school’s administration claims there were anonymous complaints linking the lab to intelligent design. The site has since been moved to a third party’s server.
