A discussion of CSI

by Neil Rickert

There’s an interesting discussion of Complex Specified Information going on at the Uncommon Descent site.  MathGrrl, a skeptic of ID, had started the discussion in an earlier thread and in a thread at Mark Frank’s blog.  And now the UD staff have invited MathGrrl to author a guest post.  The thread, and subsequent discussion, is an attempt to come up with an actually usable definition of CSI.

My own view is that CSI is pretty much vaporware – something with a name, but which cannot be pinned down.  (Vaporware is a computer jargon term for announced software that does not exist.)  Thus far, I see the discussion of CSI as consistent with my view.  But it is an interesting discussion.  I suggest that you read it for yourself and form your own judgment.
