Oh, wow. It appears Scott Adams is a Creationist.
Suddenly I feel less inclined to read Dilbert any more...
There's a reasonable critique here.

"This paper presents a camera that samples the 4D light field on its sensor in a single photographic exposure. This is achieved by inserting a microlens array between the sensor and main lens, creating a plenoptic camera. Each microlens measures not just the total amount of light deposited at that location, but how much light arrives along each ray."
"By re-sorting the measured rays of light to where they would have terminated in slightly different, synthetic cameras, we can compute sharp photographs focused at different depths."
