Again, Shannon does not ignore meaning completely. However...
... as it turns out, even fidelity is enough to sink evolution. The problem is that DNA is a code that means something. By "meaning something" I mean that it makes a difference what the code is. In other words, if you have DNA that codes for a trait, it can code for very little if anything else; and visa-versa, if the DNA is different from that code just mentioned, then you will get a different result (a different trait or a variation of that trait or a different path to that trait). Adding noise to the signal (the transmitted code) would require an equal change in the receiver/decoder for the code to continue to "mean something" as if the sender/code contained that original message.
The assumption of meaning is a source of confusion. Generally 'information' refers to something meaningful. "Shannon information" does not. "Information", in Shannon's work, was simply "that which is transmitted".
You can transmit complete gibberish, with no meaning whatsoever. Shannon's achievement is that he can tell you how much the gibberish received matches the gibberish transmitted. You can transmit something profound or something fanciful or fallacious - it doesn't matter one bit to Shannon's procedures. All that matters is fidelity.
Loss of fidelity = loss of meaningful information in the real world. It's common sense; it's observable; it's common experience. But Shannon defined 'information' differently. The infidelity of gibberish is just as important as the infidelity of the most profound message, according to his maths. The content does not matter
, and if the content itself does not matter, clearly the significance of the content cannot either.
Now gibberish can be added to any message. Evolutionists point to the fact that by Shannon's definition, gibberish can be classified as "information". I have seen no evidence that people fall for the bait-and-switch; it's pretty counter-intuitive, and explaining it sufficiently for anyone to understand simply gives away the deception.
Information cannot be created, if one employs the normal definitions of the term. If the term be expanded to include meaningless, worthless gibberish, it seems inevitable that "information" must be created left and right.
However, meaningless, worthless gibberish will not serve to evolve life from non-life or evolve new organs and systems outside of imagination. We know proper, meaningful information must be coded into the genes, if they are to accomplish anything. The source of any proper, meaningful information you'll ever encounter will always be an intelligent entity.
