I see that in the unending TSZ and Jerad Thread Joe has written in response to R0bb
Try to compress the works of Shakespear- CSI. Try to compress any encyclopedia- CSI. Even Stephen C. Meyer says CSI is not amendable to compression.
A protein sequence is not compressable- CSI.
So please reference Dembski and I will find Meyer’s quote
To save Robb the effort. Using Specification: The Pattern That Signifies Intelligence by William Dembski which is his most recent publication on specification; turn to page 15 where he discusses the difference between two bit strings (ψR) and (R). (ψR) is the bit stream corresponding to the integers in binary (clearly easily compressible). (R) to quote Dembksi “cannot, so far as we can tell, be described any more simply than by repeating the sequence”. He then goes onto explain that (ψR) is an example of a specified string whereas (R) is not.
This conflict between Dembski’s definition of “specified” which he quite explicitly links to low Kolmogorov complexity (see pp 9-12) and others which have the reverse view appears to be a problem which most of the ID community don’t know about and the rest choose to ignore. I discussed this with Gpuccio a couple of years ago. He at least recognised the conflict and his response was that he didn’t care much what Dembski’s view is – which at least is honest.
