Your statement would indeed be true if the information in the RNA was as
specific as the information the IDers were talking about.

PS, Is there really a theory out there that says information is generated by
a non-intelligent source?

Whats odd is
Randy has been telling us that information is really just in the mind. Wow,
a non-intelligent mind! What a thought! More likely would be the claim that
the genetic coding isn't information.

Wow, we cannot use computers to analyze the genetic coding? I mean, isn't it
true that what computers do is process information? I guess I need to
retire now, and erase the C++ code I wrote tonight before it makes the
machines at work "express" an activity on Monday morning.

Sorry if I sound just a tiny a bit peevish. I really don't mean to be rude.
But there is this other thread where it was suggested that the fact that
humans have a mind that contains a pattern recognizer...... means human
minds are supernatural phenomena! I'm sorry , I'm not going to easily sign
up for the idea that every person we talk to is essentially a supernatural
phenomena smacking us in the face.
