On the frontier of complexity science since he was a boy, Wolfram is a champion of cellular automata--256 "programs" governed by simple nonmathematical rules.
He shows that the conflict extends beyond evolution to their very beliefs in science itself; and, in Gould’s case, to domains in which science plays no role at all.
British science writer Richard Hamblyn skillfully blends biography with scientific and cultural history to capture for modern readers the remarkable achievement of Luke Howard (1772-1864), the quiet Quaker whose classification of cloud types we still employ today.

  What is Science?
Science is an intellectual activity carried on by humans that is designed to discover information about the natural world in which humans live and to discover the ways in which this information can be organized into meaningful patterns.
Science consists simply of the formulation and testing of hypotheses based on observational evidence; experiments are important where applicable, but their function is merely to simplify observation by imposing controlled conditions.
Science is the most subversive thing that has ever been devised by man. It is a discipline in which the rules of the game require the undermining of that which already exists, in the sense that new knowledge always necessarily crowds out inferior antecedent knowledge.

Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.

Science is not the root cause of these problems, nor is it an assured solution; but without question, science and technology must be a significant part of the solution.
Science was hoarded by the few who passed it in egg shells and spider threads, back and forth to grow beyond the palms of both hands, then satchels and wicker baskets, to shuttle through space, honed at each turn by pulleys and planes to the precision of typesets and clockworks.

 Joseph Priestley, 1733-1804
Priestley argued that writing a history of science was important since it could show how human intelligence discovers and directs the forces of nature.

 Methods of Theistic Science
This conflict is resolved by seeing Theistic Science as a branch of each theoretical science, to derive general theoretical principles from the laws transmitted through scientific revelations from God.
In developing Theistic Science, the perpetual tasks are discriminating truth from errors, and to use sources of ideas that tend to be true.
Theistic science does not proceed by pitting one theory against another and testing out which one wins out by predicting and organizing data in a superior way -- as it is done in materialistic science.

Although I am replacing Dr. James Hansen on this panel, I would like to clarify that I am not representing Dr. Hansen, and I am fully responsible for my testimony.
There has been landmark progress in the science of climate change since the publication of the last IPCC report in 2001 and even in just the past one or two years, as my testimony will show.
I would characterize this progress as falling into two general categories:  (1) greatly reduced uncertainties and (2) global changes in the climate, many of which were predicted years ago based on the anticipated effects of man-made greenhouse gases, are already being observed.
