That would be the case if the genetic code were just a sequence of
bases in static entropic equilibrium, like a string of numbers on
sheet of paper. But it is nothing like that as we know. It is rather
a super dynamic system which "maintains" entropic equilibrium in time
against all odds, even during its own replications; and therefore, it
resembles more something designed than randomly produced.
