Vacation Reading

Mark Chu-Carroll reminds me to read a paper recently co-authored by intelligent design creationist William Dembski, "The Search for a Search - Measuring the Information Cost of Higher Level Search," which while not published in the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, was published in IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics in September.

This is of import because intelligent design creationists generally haven't produced anything worth printing in a respectable journal, and this paper makes appeals to intelligent design creationism within it (but evidently its appeals are essentially "on a set of measure zero" as folks like me are wont to say).

More recent stuff on this by Dr. Chu-Carroll here.

I'd like to understand the issues behind it, to know bad science better.
