Some people here do not agree that genes actually carry information.

I think what people are saying is that the "information" - if you want to call it that - on DNA is not fundamentally different from the information on any other molecule. IDists seem to think that there is tiny writing on DNA molecules that could only have been put there by a Designer. The "argument against information" is that there is nothing "on" a DNA molecule above and beyond what is on a water molecule. The "code" is the structure of the molecule itself.
