Global Online Seminar #32: Taxonomic Units in Ecological Niche Modelling: Do They Matter?

This talk will be presented by Dr. Octavio Rojas, a researcher at the Instituto de Ecologia, in Xalapa, Mexico. Octavio has worked with niche modeling applications to various empirical topics related to species' distributions. He will speak to the question of the appropriate taxonomic level for niche modeling applications. is the link for viewing

The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Internet of all (OIE) continue being the main words of fashion. It is true that appliances, articles, home automation devices, all kinds of sensors, controllers, and many other mechanical devices are increasingly connecting to the wider network called the Internet. Some of the comments on the IO / IoE.

For consumers the IO / OIE that will mean the access to the information and the possibility of remote control of the devices?

The light of distant stars. Is it perhaps a proof that the universe is old?

How many explanations could be regarding the incompatibility between the apparent young universe and the light which is travelling for millions or billions of years in the space, while the stars which emitted it are already inexistent? Maybe wee have not the necessary knowledge to fully establish this enigma. Maybe something we have always thought, discovered by scientists is partially wrong, who knows?
An hypothesis which solves this incompatibility could be this:
The Bible indicates three times (using 3 different Hebrew verbs) that God "stretched out the heavens" (for example Isaiah 42:5; 45:12; 51:13; Jeremiah 10:12).

For the heavens were created before the stars and planets, this deployment will probably refers to the creation of the heavenly bodies.
According to Dr. Humphreys, it exists a solution of the equation of Einstein's gravitational field which can allows a very rapid expansion of the space and consequently of all the things that it contains. This could give to the universe the ability to swell to its present size in less than 6000 years. Consequently the light has begun its journey when the galaxies were closer (and also smaller and less energetic) than today. This expansion would incorporate symmetrically all matter, and would not be identified from that of the "internal." On the other hand, this could explain the redshift of wavelengths of the starlight.

"Do faith in God and science contradict?"

Science is defined as “the observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.” Science is a method that mankind can use to gain a greater understanding of the natural universe. It is a search for knowledge through observation. However, a Christian’s belief in science should never be like our belief in God. A Christian can have faith in God and respect for science, as long as we remember which is perfect and which is not.
Our belief in God is a belief of faith. We have faith in His Son for salvation, faith in His Word for instruction, and faith in His Holy Spirit for guidance. Our faith in God should be absolute, since when we put our faith in God, we depend on a perfect Creator. Our belief in science should be intellectual and nothing more. We can count on science to do many great things, but we can also count on science to make mistakes. If we put faith in science, we depend on imperfect, sinful, limited, mortal men. Science throughout history has been wrong about many things, such as the shape of the earth, powered flight, vaccines, blood transfusions, and even reproduction. God is never wrong.
Truth is nothing to fear, so there is no reason for a Christian to fear good science. Learning more about the way God constructed our universe helps all of mankind appreciate the wonder of creation. Expanding our knowledge helps us to combat disease, ignorance, and misunderstanding. However, there is danger when scientists hold their faith human's knowledge above faith in our Creator. These persons are no different from anyone devoted to a religion; they have chosen faith in man and will find facts to defend that faith.
Still, the most rational scientists, even those who refuse to believe in God, admit to a lack of completeness in our understanding of the universe. They will admit that neither God nor the Bible can be proved or disproved by science, just as many of their favorite theories ultimately cannot be proved or disproved. Much of science supports the existence and work of God. Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” As modern science discovers more about the universe, we might find more evidence of creation. The amazing complexity and replication of DNA, the intricate and interlocking laws of physics, and the absolute harmony of conditions and chemistry here on earth all serve to support the message of the Bible. A Christian can embrace science that seeks the truth, but reject the “priests of science” who put human knowledge above God.

Well blaming the french might be a bit much, but the world sure seems to be following the postmodernist framework. Silly as it might be.

A.meemannae lived about 130 million years ago during the Early Cretaceous period. It’s now the earliest member of the Ornithuromorpha clade ever found.
