bacterial intelligence shown to be DNA driven (Animals)

Dhw: Your agreement that cellular intelligence is NOT “beyond possibility” is key to hypothesis 3). That does not mean hypothesis 3) is now proven. It means that hypothesis 3) is possible.

DAVID: I believe I said that since God is universal consciousness His consciousness could be extended into the cellular level. I still believe cellular responses are automatic.

dhw: The exchange came about when I listed scientists who believe in cellular intelligence, and so you listed some scientists who don’t. You agreed that the fact that there is no consensus must mean that neither hypothesis is “beyond possibility”, then you questioned why your agreement was key to the whole debate on how evolution happened. I know you don’t accept (3) (the autonomous inventive mechanism), but if cellular intelligence is possible, then so is (3). That is why your agreement is key to the whole debate.

Thee article I presented showed that bacterial responses are dependent on DNA and when artificially changed the bacteria changed. All automatic. When I say 'not beyond possibility' I'm admitting I accept the fact that I could be wrong, but I think not. Shapiro's finding that bacteria can edit their own DNA, in my view, is an automatic mechanism given to bacteria by God.
