Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • The simplest approach (so far) is to simply acknowledge and affirm that the existing term "nature" does not imply that the built-in regularities science studies cannot also be designed.

    De Facto Intelligent Design in Biology

  • If 'laws' are posited to explain regularities, must not they themselves be immaterial entities that transcend and govern the behavior of the universe's material entities?

    A Useless Critic

  • The fact that the behaviour of the universe has regularities is a fact – science is quite happy just getting on with identifying what those regularities are, and explaining the behaviour of the universe in terms of those regularities, without tying itself in knots asking whether a universe could exist without regularities of behaviour.

    A New Weapon Against Freedom and ID: Volksverhetzung

  • According to regularity theorists, the only difference between laws and accidental regularities is that laws have some special epistemic or pragmatic or logical trappings (e.g., they contain projectible predicates like "˜rest mass 'rather than" ˜grue 'or they form part of a powerful deductive theory).

    A Useless Critic

  • He showed how certain regularities can be explained which had earlier been found by empirical means, and he devised a number of new, previously unknown laws for the behaviour of liquids.

  • Moreover, its recognition of certain regularities in nature lagged far behind the discovery of mathematical laws of nature first formulated by the genius of

    Rudolf Eucken - Nobel Lecture

  • In this case we notice that the authors are talking about science exploring a better understanding of proteins (in other words regularities) as well as Darwinian approaches to design proteins (regularity and chance).

    The despair of Intelligent Design - The Panda's Thumb

  • In this case we notice that the authors are talking about science exploring a better understanding of proteins (in other words regularities) as well as Darwinian approaches to design proteins (regularity and chance).
