Ask Richard Dawkins About Evolution, Religion, and Science Education

boulabiar The first cell (1142 comments)

Even if evolution has many facts confirming it, the big problem is in the first cell. Last research papers state that the minimum genes to create a living cell is ~400. 400 genes is so much complex to be generated by luck or by mutation from nothing. How can you be so confident in atheism with such lack of evidence (others may chose to be agnostics or believers).

Hawking Picks Physics Over God For Big Bang

boulabiar Re:But what created the law of gravity? (1328 comments)

and why you are able to believe in the existence of gravity and not the one of God ? If you ask who created God, you've already broken a mathematical law. There are 2 different groups : Creatures, and Creator. If someone created God, then he's no more a creator. Define groups you work on then ask real questions. IMHO I find God easier and more logic to believe in, than believing in Probability or Gravity outside their scientific place. BTW, God can't be like human or other things, you still can't know how much dimensions the world has. If dimensions are more than the 3D+T (Maybe 11?) Then God has at least the same dimensions. (if time is a dimension, then God is 4D and he can modify the time, without having time take an effect on God) People believing in 3D gods or human-like gods need now to change their minds...

Unveiling the technology behind Leapmotion

boulabiar boulabiar writes  |  about 2 years ago

boulabiar writes "The leapmotion gadget has beaten the kinect accuracy and speed by 200x making it the most advanced device in gestural recognition among a big list of devices.
Once showed to public, many of the core NUI developers had doubts it was only fake. Being very interested in knowing the technology used, Mohamed Ikbel Boulabiar, a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction in Telecom Bretagne, France, have written a blogpost guessing the technology based on many small details from videos and research papers. And proposing an hypothesis that it's the depth from defocus method being used in research since 1982 and started by Alex Pentland from MIT."
