...and that mostly hairless bipedal ape that we know and love as Richard Dawkins wrote the Weasel program, and put it in his wonderful book The Blind Watchmaker. It's not a simulation of evolution, rather it's showing how adding selection to random events is the opposite of pure chance. Yet creationists don't seem to get this and focus on it like it's anything more than analogy. I wrote a similar program last year, though I "cheated" by locking individual letters when they hit the right character. In the spirit of Creationists not getting it, I've written it again this time without cheating. [source code here]
I'm really surprised that creationists are calling for the source code, it's a very easy program to write. It took me less than an hour writing it in C++. Without "cheating" by locking characters, I was still able to generate a solution. And just to show it wasn't a fluke, I repeated the process hundreds of times changing the mutation rate and number of children; finding a maximum and minimum and an average.
It amazes me that still there are those who go on about the program. It's easy to write and it evidentially works. Anyone who doesn't think that it can or thinks that my code is somehow cheating is welcome to download it and try it out for themselves. Play around with the variables, I made it all parameterised so it is flexible enough to mess around with. How fast it works doesn't really matter, the important thing to take away from the program is that it does work.
