Earth to GlenDavidson: The Genetic Code

The TARD never stops over on TSZ. Now we have the blessed and very special GlenDavidson saying:
Of course it’s not a symbolic code, it’s a chemical code that works by chemical interactions.
That bit of easily refutable nonsense refers to the genetic code. And of course the genetic code is a symbolic code. The mRNA codons represent their respective amino acids and do not become them via ant physico-chemical process. That means the mRNA codons are the symbols for the amino acids. That is why the process of making the proteins is called translation. The mRNA symbols are translated into the working polypeptide. The ribosome is a genetic compiler. It takes the source code in and puts out the protein object code.

It is a symbolic code and although it involves chemical reactions it is not reducible to them. Codes don't just make themselves and then make the machinery to carry it out.
