DNA encoded information: evidence of a Designer

Q8: Can information be created by natural means?

The biggest conundrum for agnostics alike is where does information come from? The intelligence wired into DNA code for building millions of amino acids into a 3D structure of complexity cannot come about by random chance. One of the smallest protein in humans is Insulin and this protein has 51 amino acids in its construction.

To calculate the chance to build insulin by random changes in the ACGT base code of RNA or DNA, we have an independent probability of 1/4 for each amino acid coded in its correct sequence. So to make insulin by random change alone is a probability of 1/4 times 1/4 times 1/4, fifty-one times...and you get a number 1 to the power of -31...that's a the number 1 followed by 31 zeroes! The number of seconds since the big bang according to scientists 14 billion years ago is just the number 1 followed by 19 zeros! Why even the number of particles in the universe by some guess-estimates is only around the number 1 followed by 80 zeroes! And this assumes RNA or DNA actually allows for random changes to its information patterns. We assume genetic variation comes from DNA exchange, yes, but not random changes to DNA anywhere the base pairs like...sometimes we get mutations that do this and the result is always a loss of information, never a proper useful gain of information.

If we take the binary code of computers as "0 and 1" or "off and on" could we expect a child capable of making a program to calculate two numbers together given the task to switch on and off a series of electrical switches? Why even computers have to have a BIOS program installed by intelligence to begin with to tell the computer that these binary coded messages actually mean something to begin with.

As any computer programmer would tell you syntax errors in code is fatal, thus such errors would make reproduction of the new genetics impossible. This leaves only logical errors in code as any possibility of creating meaningful intelligence. But such meaningless code only makes the design run poorly if at all. As programmers will tell you usually a single logical error brings total destruction to the success of a programmed design.

When one considers the enormous complexity required for an eye for example, random DNA strands of A-C-T-G creating newer information, the probability of new intelligence is impossible to achieve. Gerald Schroeder proved this for something simple as a Shakespearean sonnet of just 300 letters in length could not have resulted by random chance alone.

The probability for creating an intelligent poem of 300 meaningful letters, as Hebrew does with no spaces between words, just letters... would be the number 1/26 times (for 1 letter out of 26 letters) times 1/26 (for the second letter correctly chosen) times 1/26 (for the third letter correctly chosen) times ... itself 300 times, in other words the probability is so small there are not enough subatomic particles in the entire universe to contain the number.

Just think the number of days this universe has lived so far is around 1,000,000,000,000. And we still have another 250 zeroes to add! In other words the organism would have to make the evolution changes required in a few billionths of second in the correct sequence to get enough time to do everything correctly before it dies, assuming it knows how to reproduce itself....such probability is zero of ever happening...

They even tried to get a bunch of monkeys to type onto typewriters over a period of weeks to see if they could by random chance alone create any words. To create a single word you would have to press "spacebar a spacebar" for "a" or "spacebar I spacebar" for "i". The results showed the monkeys could NOT even create an "a" or "I" word, let alone anything bigger than a single one letter word.

Neural networks look impressive as artificial intelligence machines but they have to be trained to gain intelligence and than they work only within the parameters of their training....hardly enough intelligence to cope with a dysfunctional world on their own.

Most programmers will tell you that emotion is near impossible to simulate in artificial intelligence machines because it is irrational and makes no logical sense to a living organism, let alone to an electronic robot.

Listen to a challenge by GOD Himself from His Bible :

Ps 8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger...Ps 8:3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;Ps 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Where does language come from?Why do babies pick up complex language so quickly has baffled scientists to this day. It seems language is wired into the genetic fabric, so that babies comprehend language rapidly. This moves the DNA of designed intelligence into the realm of something greater than mere evolution doesn't it ?
