Much More Detail Please
This is an interesting topic to discuss.

However, before it can be promoted we'd need to see a lot more detail.

Please define "coded symbolic information" so we know what is being discussed. That would be a good start.

Then you should offer your own views on the subject. That is, to you think there is or is not a problem for DNA to have this stuff and why do you think that.

Re: Much More Detail Please
I guess the topic is done with then.

Since DNA's "message" is not separate from the medium at all it doesn't meet the definition of you Coded Information.

DNA is just chemistry. Can you explain why you think it is anything more?

Re: Much More Detail Please
Since DNA is very much reducible to chemicals you might want to do more research before you try to discuss this.

But I'll let this go for now.

You will have to support your arguments with evidence or this thread will be closed.

All you have done so far is make unsupported assertions. That will not be allowed to continue.

You have a few days to get it sorted out.

A reminder
Has Percy has less formally noted you are expected to define what you are talking about.

This topic was promoted conditionally. Please remember that. You have some difficult challenges to deal with. It maybe the first time you've ever had to really think about what you mean and to be clear in your thinking and expression.

You should take this as a learning opportunity. I'll be fairly lenient as long as I see what I consider an honest attempt to respond to the replies and requests that you get.
