Biology and Information

When we see the design in living things and want to know how they have their characteristics, we have to think small. Very small, but with big concepts, all the way down to the molecular level. It's a matter of information. DNA, RNA, chromosomes, and so on are communicating information to not only in the building of an organism, but to keep it going. The information must have a source.

Those believing in muck-to-man evolution are constantly dealing with the source and uses of information in living things. They try and fail to conjure up plausible origin of life scenarios, including the desperate "RNA world" for self-replicating systems concept, and then try to explain how living things are encoded with the ability to self-adapt to changing situations. They don't give us anything real to hang our hats on in their efforts to deny the reality of our Creator who gave us life.
The greatest challenge for evolutionary biology is to account for the information found in codes in DNA, RNA, proteins, and more recently in the epigenome. The mutation/selection mechanism of neo-Darwinism, although still taught in biology textbooks, has been shown inadequate by creation and intelligent design scientists. Indeed, even some leading evolutionists are seeking alternative mechanisms such as self-organization. Much evidence has been found against neo-Darwinism (and all related stochastic processes) and for intelligent design (ID) in recent years. Intelligent design advocates have found ways to detect design. Much evidence has been found against the macroevolution of Homo sapiens and for the biblical origin of mankind.
Evolutionists must account for the origin of life, the Cambrian Explosion in the fossil record, living fossils, the lack of transitional forms, the origin of sexuality, the origin of consciousness, the origin of information in macroevolution, the origin of irreducibly complex molecular machines, convergent evolution, and the information found in the epigenome.

Information is vital to the origin, design, and function of living things. Believers in muck-to-man evolution are unable to present plausible ideas and models for these things, yet they persist in denying the obvious evidence of our Creator's work.
