William Dembski....can he add up etc.
I brought this up before but I noticed someone who left a comment to the effect that Dembski's mathematical abilities are under question. I have heard contradictory views about this and I am personally not in a position to give his mathematical work a careful scrutiny... I am however very interested. I have heard it suggested that the inventor of the "No free lunch theorems" thinks that he abused them and I have heard that Dembski and Shallit are not on speaking terms for one reason or another. I have also heard that his maths is fine from other people ...it is just he muddles up the conclusions!
It surely shouldn't be difficult for someone who is well qualified to work out whether he is competent and whether his work is leading to valid conclusions or not.
Who am I supposed to believe on this and why?
Can someone qualified and respected give me a truly objective report on Dembski's mathematical ability? Did CUP make a big error or not?
