Yes, the Genetic Code is a Real Code and DNA is used as Symbols
EvoTARDs are such a predictible bunch of losers. Their position cannot handle real codes so they are forced to say the gentic code is a metaphor- it ain't no real code! Not only that but the DNA codons are not symbols that represent amino acids!!11!!11!!!!
Do the DNA codons become the amino acids? No, the DNA codons REPRESENT the amino acids. There isn't any physio-chemical reaction in which the codons transform into amino acids.
IOW only complete morons would say that the genetic code is not a real code and the DNA codons are not symbols. And that is exactly what evoTARDs say...
