So let me get this straight. DNA/RNA is not an information system and DNA doesn't qualify as code. It developed spontaneously, by itself, from basic elements in solid and liquid form. It created a system so intricate and complicated, we are still trying to figure out how it works. There is mention of the application of algorithms and a complicated genomic error correction system in the transcription process.
One-celled organisms transformed into multi-celled organisms. From multi-celled organisms these would magically turn into complicated life forms and divide into male and female sexes. Somewhere along the line these organisms migrated from the sea onto land. Lo and behold! when the going got tough, some of them migrated back into the sea. Mother Nature does the most extraordinary things. Yes, I know a period of 450 million years is a long time and lots of things can happen during that time. That's why evolutionism qualifies as a religion. One must have a lot of faith to believe in all of that.
Talking of Mars, I see evolutionary scientists are putting their money on it. They predict that life would be able to exist in subterranean vaults and caves. So, if they find life there, they would be able to demonstrate how life on earth started. Well, I will also make a prediction. They will not find life on Mars or anywhere else in the solar system (except earth) because life, in any form, cannot be kick started by itself, not in a million years.
Cofty: There is no recipient in DNA. It's all just electrons doing their thing.
In DNA, information is just a metaphor.
Cofty, I believe you are wrong. "It's all just electrons doing their thing." Intelligent electrons! I have never heard of such codswallop in my whole life. And it is noted that Viv is quite happy with that. Thanks for your input Viv. And you two laugh at those putting faith in religion? Even the beliefs of JWs are tame in comparison to what you believe.
Anyway, DNA qualifies as an information system, whether you like it or not. The sender of this information system is God, and the recipients are all the life forms on earth, and I am grateful for his magnanimous generosity.
