DAVID: The point for me is where did the intelligent information came from. It obviously exists. For me it is evidence for God, especially since I think they act automatically.

dhw: It is your interpretation of how evolution works that is under discussion. I have agreed a thousand times that intelligence of whatever kind is evidence for God, and so I put on my theist hat and challenge your hypothesis that your God preprogrammed or dabbled every innovation, lifestyle and natural wonder, all for the sake of producing Homo sapiens and his brain. I propose a different hypothesis that does away with all the anomalies and contradictions and illogicalities of your own, but depends on the (God-given?) intelligence of all organisms. I do not expect you to accept it, and I myself accept that there is a question mark over the potential range of cellular intelligence, but I do not expect you to reject it on the grounds that you know more about cells than Shapiro, Margulis, McLintock, B├╝hler & Co.

I will stick to my position that with my education and training in human biology, I have the right to my own interpretation of their findings and opinions. I know what they have found and I differ with their interpretations, as previously described.
