Absolutely! And this is the key point regarding information (as in a code or cipher) this type of information is reliant on a continuous agreement between transmitter and receiver upon what the content means.
Then it should be obvious to the casual observer that the information, and information stored in DNA and the information processsing system of the living cell did not arise by materialistic process.
Loose that agreement and the information is gone.Â Reinvent the agreement and the information is retrieved.
Not really..... The information stored in heiroglyphics was unknown for thousands of years until the rosetta stone was discovered that had the same information written in 3 languages on it. Once the key was discovered, the information was able to be retireved from the heiroglyphs, but it was always there even while no one understood it.
Loose the carrier (the physical material smoke) and the information is gone and it cant be retrieved, ever.
Exactly.... Matter is only a carrier of information, but it is not information itself.
If you think so, then the next time you return home from the grocery store, convince yourself that the grocery bag that you used to carry
your food hoome with is food, and eat it.
So where is the information in a computer? Remove the human race and replace them with aliens and they would find no information, zero.Â You would have to reinvent it (break the code) itâ€™s all ones and zeros on a hard drive and thatâ€™s is physical as you can get.Â Same with smoke signals, same with learning to talk. Neurons, silicone, or smoke, itâ€™s all the same.
Again, try eating your grocery bag when you get home from the store next time, and tell me that a carrier of food is food.
If you disagree show me some information that breaks this argument.
You've essentially done it yourself. All of your arguments are predicated on code systems having a mental origin, every single one..... Consequently, the infomation sytsem of the cell must have had a mental origin. Now humans weren't around to create life, so it was either aliens or God. The probability of aliens beign around to do it is vanishingly small, so its a logical conclusion that God, who is not matierial, is responsible for the existance of life, and not evolution.
