Tony: It has nothing to do with the number of bases. Not really. Rearranging those bases into new forms requires either new information, or a data storage section that contains All the necessary construction AND the necessary triggers for when and under what circumstances to make which changes.

So, produce evidence of either of those, both of which can be discovered with science, and I would gladly accept this form of evolution. It would likely fit nicely with my own hypothesis regarding the nature of DNA and information within the Genome.

However, absent evidence of either of those things, I must assume them to be, at worst, untrue, and at best undiscovered.

David: how do you know the necessary information is not implicit in the bases if rearranged?

Tony: You may be familiar with Binary, 0 & 1. Or even Ternary - 1, 0, 1.

But Quaternary coding is far more complex. Our genetic language is a chemical quatarnery system that also has spatial requirements.

DAVID I wish I understood programming. But perhaps your "data storage section' exists. Knowing that rearrangement of parts of a gene results in a specific function or functions implies there is information and controls we still don't understand.

It is certainly possible, I just think it unlikely. It would leave a lot of room for messed up genetics that we have not observed. Where is the lama with a giraffe neck?

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
