"It's Life, All the Way Down"
The hopeful thing is that molecular biologists today — slowly but surely, and perhaps despite themselves — are increasingly being driven to enlarge their understanding through a reckoning with genetic contexts. As a result, they are writing “finis” to the misbegotten hope for a non-lifelike foundation of life, even if the fact hasn’t yet been widely announced.From Getting Over the Code Delusion
It is, I think, time for the announcement.
There is a frequently retold story about a little old lady who claims, after hearing a scientific lecture, that the world is a flat plate resting on the back of a giant tortoise. When asked what the turtle is standing on, she invokes a second turtle. And when the inevitable follow-up question comes, she replies, “You’re very clever, young man, but you can’t fool me. It’s turtles all the way down.”
As a metaphor for the scientific understanding of biology, the story is marvelously truthful. In the study of organisms, “It’s life all the way down.” (bold added)
It appears we are not the sum of our genes, ie our DNA does not make us who/ what we are. The observed levels of specified complexity, from top to bottom, scream of software control and therefor an intelligent design.
No Jacques Monod, we are not the result of mere accidents. There isn't any evidence for that and there isn't any way to test the premise. The theory of evolution's shit just happens mechanism is devoid of content.
The evidence for intelligent design is so overwhelming that long time atheist Anthony Flew couldn't deny it any longer. It is only a matter of time for the rest to either die off or pull their heads out of their asses. My bet is most would rather die first.
