Share Congratulations to Science Magazine for an Honest Portrayal of Darwin’s Descent of Man “A Summary of the Evidence for Intelligent Design”: The Study Guide Jane Goodall Meets the God Hypothesis Intelligent Design Historian and Nature’s Prophet Author Michael Flannery Reviews the ReviewersEvolution News @DiscoveryCSCDecember 21, 2019, 5:45 AM Evolution On a new episode of ID the Future, Michael Flannery speaks again with host Mike Keas about his book Nature’s Prophet: Alfred Russel Wallace, and His Evolution from Natural Selection to Natural Theology. Wallace was the co-discoverer of the theory of evolution by natural selection along with Charles Darwin, but in 1869 he broke with Darwin, disagreeing with him on the origin of special human attributes like art, music, and abstract thought. Download the podcast or listen to it here.Seeing how distinctive humans are from other animals, and after determining that the mechanism of random variation and natural selection was inadequate to explain the origin of those distinctive qualities, Wallace concluded that the origin of our species required a special ruling intelligence to explain our appearance. He dissented from his day’s version of reductionist scientism, and in his 1910 book The World of Life, he put forth a natural theology compatible with Christianity, though he himself was not a Christian.Flannery also discusses two reviews of Nature’s Prophet, one from a Harvard scientist who, according to Flannery, misunderstands Wallace, Christian theology, and the point of the book.

IAF: Railway surveying specialist Amberg Technologies used the IAF track technology trade show in Münster to update visitors on enhancements to its range of measuring tools.Using a hand-propelled trolley as a base to carry a variety of measuring tools and georeferencing devices, Amberg is seeking to ensure a high degree of modularity and ease of use for both surveyors and maintenance staff. The focus is to best fit into the workflow of its customers and increase both the accuracy and speed of surveying.Delivering a series of demonstration surveys at Speicherstadt in the suburbs of Münster on May 30, Amberg highlighted increasing demand from main line and urban rail asset owners for tools that can survey the railway alignment and surrounding structures with greater precision. The company claims that its tools can complete surveying jobs in half the time of competing products on the market at present. This is a particular asset for surveys undertaken before and after tamping, where infrastructure managers face pressure to use shorter track possession windows.Amberg is introducing a number of product developments in 2017, focusing on the trolley-mounted Inertial Measurement System introduced in 2015 for surveying and tamping applications. This can be operated by one person compared to two or three for conventional systems which involve either wayside tripods or a twin trolley approach, explained Head of Rail Products Marius Schäuble. In 2016, the company launched its ‘start from scratch’ IMS Survey product, capable of producing an ‘as built’ survey of a railway without relying on any track records or control points. At IAF, Amberg launched the IMS GNSS, which enables users to embed surveying results in an absolute co-ordinate format which is compatible with BIM and CAD applications.The company reported that the trolley can handle walking surveys at 4 km/h, a significant increase on previous designs.Amberg also showcased its infrastructure measurement product, where a laser scanner is mounted on the IMS base system. This IMS 5000 platform acquires comprehensive object data around the track for clearance analysis or creation of 3D point clouds, Schäuble explained.
