"Duplication isn't new information. It is just doubling existing data". Mark Forbes #22

That is a very important point!

Duplication or deleting can change the existing code but it has limits. It can only do so much and more often than not it causes problems, i.e., mutations which are usually detrimental to an organism.

It may sound circular to some but in order to add complex functions to an organism there must necessarily be an increase in useful information or "code".

Using existing code would limit function to a finite goal. In my opinion it could not take a fish to a bird.

We observe variation within a certain type or kind of species but not an upward ascent of a lower species to a higher order. Again, there are limits without the infusion of new meaningful information which the scientists tell us requires an intelligent source.
