Can you please explain how the complex information contained in the DNA of the cells of all living organisms could have come to pass without an intelligent designer?
No one can deny that the information in a book (words, numbers, meaning, etc.) was put there by an intelligent designer, i.e. an author. Similarly, no one can deny that the information in a painting (representations of people, places, things, emotions, etc.) came about by an intelligent designer, i.e. an artist.
The information contained in DNA is infinitely more complex than the information in a book or painting. Furthermore, DNA not only contains information, but it also contains translators that make sense of the information in order to make the living organism function correctly. How can you deny, then, that this complex genetic information had its origin in any other than an intelligent designer?

- Most likely, Dave is referring to the common claim among evangelical Christians that they aren't religious but rather have a "relationship" with Jesus and that religion is bad. JoshuaZ 18:49, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
Intelligent design is a convenient way to assume that we have an answer to everything, and therefore that we can stop investigating. No one has the proofs to show it is wrong, but neither is the oposite true. Therefore, research needs to continue, and ID is on oposition with the scientific research process. Which is why it has nothing to do in classrooms.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs)
