QUOTE: Thus, ASC allows us mathematically measure our intuition that randomness and order are intrinsically different and that order conveys information while randomness does not convey information.

dhw: Frankly, I could have told our author that without bothering with toothpicks or the rest of the article.

DAVID: My intent was to show how little we know about the functions of the genome and therefore are discussions are mostly exchanged hypotheses based on minimal factual understanding of how life remains alive and how and why it evolved.

And you have expressed our ignorance far more lucidly than the author of the article. Indeed that is why you and I constantly point out the gaps in each other’s hypotheses. But at least we agree that despite our ignorance and our disagreements about origins, purposes and methods, we are lucky to be alive and to be able to exchange these hypotheses!:-)
