Fingerprints of the Trinity? The neglected doctrine of 'vestiges' and the new science of signs - Andrew Robinson What is 'meaning' or 'information'? What makes an interpretation different from a mechanical response? What does the world have to be like for signs and signification to exist? Robinson proposes that the answers to these questions offer the basis for a new theology of nature according to which the fundamental structures of the world may be understood as 'vestiges of the Trinity in creation'. Scientific spin-offs include a new perspective on the evolution of human distinctiveness and a new approach to the origin of life.
