 Unapologetic Catholic: Science
Science is not the font of all knowledge and wisdom.
Science doesn’t study some things because science is inherently limited to only those things that can be weighed measured, detected or “quantified” somehow.
Since his 1996 book, however, science has continued and has demonstrated that his proposed systems are not irreducibly complex and identified evolutionary pathways for those systems.

In 1678, Huygens, in a communication to the Academie des Science, propounded a wave theory of light propagated through 'aether,' and held that every point on a wave is itself a source of new waves.
Thus the connections which science establishes are "entirely arbitrary," and the "utmost effort of human reason is to reduce the principles, productive of natural phenomena, to a greater simplicity" (Hume 1738:30).
In 1742, Jean Le Rond D'Alembert introduced the principle which permitted the reduction of a problem in dynamics to one in statics: Kinetic equilibrium is obtained by inventing a fictional force equal in magnitude to the body in question and opposite in acceleration.

Scalability implies that a scheme for devising names may be scalable both at its terminators as well as within the structure; e.g., in a hierarchical naming scheme, a naming authority might have an extensible mechanism for adding new sub-registries.

 Is Quantum Mechanics relevant to understanding consciousness?:A review of "Shadows of the Mind" by Roger ...
In connection with this third topic, I will argue that although Penrose is probably wrong about the physics of quantum mechanics being relevant to the (third person) neural correlates of awareness, the metaphysics of quantum mechanics may be essential to understanding the (first person) subjective nature of consciousness.
I believe that the metaphysical underpinnings of quantum mechanics are crucial for a deep understanding of consciousness and the connection between mind and brain.
Stapp (1993) and Penrose would like this association to be in the realm of science; Klein (1992, 1993) has argued that it could be in the realm of metaphysics.

 plating assay for aneuploidy in N. crassa
In an attempt to validate the finding of enhanced aneuploidy, methylation was reduced in a dim+ met-7 (methionine) auxotroph, by starving for methionine, and a high frequency of aneuploidy was observed.
Thus, it is important to use compatible strains in order to maximize detection of aneuploids; this probably holds for any assay method.
Because we had to construct new met-7 strains carrying appropriate genetic markers for our plating assay for aneuploids, we tested these new strains for the ability to generate al-2/al+ (white/orange) mosaic aneuploids, one of the tests for aneuploidy in the previous study, and these strains failed to generate mosaics.

 PSRD: Triggering the Formation of the Solar System
ne of the most amazing discoveries in space science is the unambiguous evidence from meteorites that the solar nebula (the cloud of gas and dust in which the Sun and planets formed) contained radioactive isotopes with half-lives so short that they no longer exist.
One of the characteristics of science is that someone always comes along to challenge conventional wisdom.
In this case, Frank Shu (University of California, Berkeley, now President at the National Tsinghua University in Hsinchu, Taiwan) and his coworkers suggested the renegade but imaginative idea that short-lived isotopes were made near the Sun while it was exhibiting a youthful exuberance by emitting vast amounts of radiation.
