• 5 There is no known natural process for increasing biological information.

Yes there is: endosymbiosis. But in any case, how do you define increasing biological information? If an organism is able to adapt its body to new information coming from the environment, how can it do so without adding biological information? Millions of bacteria may be killed by new antibiotics, but somehow eventually they find a biological way to counter the threat. Why does this not count as increasing biological information? And how can we know the limitations of cells to restructure themselves in the face of environmental change? (Continued…)

Endosymbiosis does not increase biologic information. The info already pre-exists in the symbiotic organism. It is simply added to its host.
