    The article discusses the importance of evolution in studying science. According to the author, scientific theory are based on intellectual leap made from available evidence. Therefore, it is not the whole truth as part of it is missing. Information on the big bang theory is also given in the...

It is suggested that the theory's principles are supported by decades of observation, verification and testing which resulted in vast amounts of...

    This paper sets up a thought-experiment that examines the transformation of energy into codified mass. This transformation is understood as a semiosic action of interpretation. The semiosic action is analyzed within five "predicate" or "verbal modes" which establish different processes of...

    Previous simulations of the growth of cosmic structures have broadly reproduced the 'cosmic web' of galaxies that we see in the Universe, but failed to create a mixed population of elliptical and spiral galaxies, because of numerical inaccuracies and incomplete physical models. Moreover, they...

    In this work we develop a microscopic physical model of early evolution where phenotype--organism life expectancy--is directly related to genotype--the stability of its proteins in their native conformations--which can be determined exactly in the model.
