NCSE is pleased to announce that the latest issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education is now available on-line.
The New York Times (May 19, 2014) covered the Wyoming legislature's decision to block the Next Generation Science Standards because of their treatment of climate change.
The Columbian mammoth is now the official state fossil of South Carolina after Governor Nikki Haley signed House Bill 4482 into law on May 16, 2014 — and there was no mention of the Sixth Day of Creation.
Two antievolution bills died in committee in the Missouri House of Representatives on May 16, 2014, when the legislature adjourned.
Quote (Nomad @ May 14 2014,22:53)Where did I say that there is no RAM in a PC? How can you misread what I repeatedly say that badly?
I also have to explain how the circuit works in a PC.
How biology accomplishes the same thing is another matter where what the equivalent mechanism is named is still "RAM".
Where did I say that there is no RAM in a PC? How can you misread what I repeatedly say that badly?
Now we're back to claims that suggest there is no RAM in the PC used to model the circuit by using code that dimensions a "RAM array" to store all the critter's memories in, by trying to argue with that there is no analogy to RAM in a neural brain when it should be obvious from the way the model works that there is.
No evidence has ever been presented to the contrary of what is stated in the the theory and is in the the models.
I'm getting annoyed by the nameless mudslingers who have nothing better to do than complain over nothing, because they don't like the terminology of science and electronics required to study intelligence.
Quote (GaryGaulin @ May 14 2014,06:09)Not all "Neural Networks" are even a RAM substitute. Your arguments become ridiculous.
Not a single one is, Gary. Yet you think they can be, despite your quaint little experiment making it quite clear to you that a system like this requires more than just RAM.
How did you miss the implications of your own work that badly?
Of course you do Gary. But that's due far more to your idee fixe, your presuppositions and fixations, than to any genuine merit in the notion.
The brain does not have RAM.
Ears do not address memory locations by address.

Of course, we've had a few dog attacks in our neighborhood too.
This is a must-read:
Strongly interacting electrons in wacky oxide synchronize to work like the brain
When I visualize this (more neural) technology in a speech recognition system I see a RAM being addressed by an ear.

A committee in the Oklahoma House of Representatives voted to reject a new set of science standards, primarily over concerns about its treatment of climate change.

Quote As said before intelligence can be measured. However its still just measuring a point in time of some people or person.
If conclusions are made then it must be a controlled experiment.
no bringing immigrant peoples from backward nations into our nations AND THEN SCORING IT.
The only reason this stuff is allowed is because they don’t have to admit to a british or aryan or white superiority. Otherwise these books and writers would be burned at the stake.
Its proof its a liberal establishment and not common consent on these matters.
in reality there is no such thing as intelligence. just divisions of knowing.
The bible says Wisdom, first, and then understanding and then knowledge. its all outside us and its there for everybody HOWEVER generally the people you are born into and mingle with are the origin for what the kid picks up.
Thats why there are identity differences. Including motivation to explain female behindness etc.
You would have to think long and hard to deliberately cram so much toxic rubbish into so few words. There are at least three good reasons to keep your mouth closed in an Internet discussion:
1. If you don't know what you are talking about
2. If you don't want to prove that you don't know what you are talking about
3. If you don't want the flies to crap all over your tongue
I have to admit to being a big fan of female behindness.
But will you ever get to the bottom of it?
No, just arsing around.
We need to get back to fundamentals here.
You shouldn't make female anatomy the butt of your jokes.
What I want to know is who was St. Eve, and why did she need a Tory?
