That’s what’s actually happening, you know. The more atheists try to prove that Intelligence has nothing to do with the rise of life, the more they show that Intelligence was absolutely required.
What I’m looking for is the origin of specified complexity as it’s found in DNA, RNA and Proteins. That’s all. Nothing more. Nothing less. Neither Chance, nor Chemical Necessity can produce that type of information.
Ask Gorth. He has no choice but to agree.
Laws of nature (or biochemistry), which denote regular patterns, produce the opposite of specified complexity.
The Chance hypothesis fails because, as we saw, there is simply not enough time nor resources in the whole universe since BB to have brought about the known outcome - specified complexity.
DNA and RNA first scenarios don’t produce specified complexity.
Every model I’ve discussed in these posts either presupposes specified complexity without explaining its origin, or simply moves the problem to another area without explaining its origin. Either way, the origin of specified complexity is ignored, sidestepped or purposely avoided - for good reason. Atheists know that to date, none of their hypothesis provides the Best Evidence for what we observe.
This is especially true for the computer models which I did not spend much time on. In computer models, the input of information (by Intelligence) always exceeds the output UNLESS an Intelligent Agent has intervened.
In origins of the universe, every attempt to prove that it wasn’t Big Bang, has wound up confirming and affirming the validity of Big Bang. In origins of first life, every attempt to prove it was something other than ID has wound up moving the case in the direction of ID; of showing the ID is what BEST EXPLAINS what we observe. We know of no other causes of specified complexity than by an Intelligent Agent. Every experiment created to prove “nothing did it” reinforces the absolute necessity of a Mind to arrange the proper components to impart the needed information.
I’ve had atheists actually point to Miller’s first experiments where “amino acids were actually produced” :-o This is said with and air of excitement yet, we now know that early earth did not have a reducing atmosphere as Miller tried to tell us. That means that experiments using a reducing mixture don’t simulate anything approaching reality. Only and Intelligent Designer (Miller) brought about those amino acids. So intelligent was he that his fraudulent experiments remained in textbooks long after it was known that early earth looked nothing like Miller had told us. As well, we know that without intervention by an Intelligent Agent, unwanted by-products in natural conditions would interact with desirable products to form useless compounds. In these types of experiments, Intelligent Agents must manipulate the conditions before they set up a “simulation” of how “nature” created life.
What’s more, since the topic of these posts is information, manipulation by intelligent agents bring about “profoundly informative interventions.” Polanyi, “Life Transcending Physics and Chemistry” 64.
Each and every decision that the scientist makes is an Intelligent Design decision to either remove one by-product and not another or to empower one compound and not another. Each of these actions puts into the system huge amounts of specific information. Any success that these experiments may have, have been achieved by Intelligent deliberate and conscious actions of an Intelligent Mind. The experiments themselves are clearly NOT simulations of actual events and are instead a clear indication of an Intelligent Agent working to bring about a desired outcome.
Computer Based Algorithms are probably the clearest case of Intelligent input. None of the experiments to date would have been possible without functional information being put into the system, information that simply would not have been there in the conditions atheists tell us existed at the primordial earth. Computer programs to simulate natural selection all have a target selection programmed in. There was / IS no such foresight in nature.
“Target selection” does not simulate natural processes.
Rather, it highlights the Intellectual powers of the computer programmers. Every computer algorithm is a testament to Intelligent Design.
I can’t find it now but I think some atheist told me that a ribosyme had been manufactured in Sweden, or something like that. Any ribosyme replication has been brought about by the Intelligence of the Ribozyme Engineers:
. Intelligent Designers are the ones who enable self-replication to proceed.
. Intelligent Designers are the ones who select molecules that have a slightly enhanced ligase capacity.
. Intelligent Designers are the ones that preserve the optimal molecules.
. Intelligent Designers are the ones that enrich the molecules by repeated selection and amplification.
. Intelligent Designers are the ones who intervene before any of the other ways that polymerases perform.
. Intelligent Designers are the ones who anticipate the future function in a way that is not possible in nature.
. Intelligent Designers are the ones who choose RNA sequences knowing beforehand the required condition to bring about self-replication.
And then they say, "Look! Life could have arisen by natural means."
That, Ginx, is the atheist influence on science. True science, pure science, science uncontaminated by atheist bias could never make such a statement. Under the bigoted drive to eliminate Creator God, that is the only statement that is allowed.
I find that profoundly sad.
None of this foresight is present in nature.
There is no Intelligent selector or replicator in nature.
Apart from an Intelligent Agent, no molecule capable of acting as a replicator would have existed in the early stages of RNA growth.
Ribozyme engineering experiments show the power of Intelligent Agents to produce the results these supposedly Intelligent Agents say happened naturally.
