There is... it's called the design inference.

An inference is not evidence, it's (wait for it).... an Inference!

considering the immense (in fact incomprehensible) complexity of living organisms.

Just because you can't comprehend it doesn't mean it's incomprehensible.

Quaternary digital codes that instruct the building of chloroplasts don't just pop out of chemical soups when you add light.

No one is saying they do, this is a straw man.

Re: There's been work done since 2004
All I am saying is that these theories offer no emperical proof of anything.

So what? you've been told multiple times before that science doesn't "prove" anything, science is tentative and always will be.

Re: There's been work done since 2004
Now there's a comment you won't hear on the Discovery Channel...

Who the fuck cares what the Discovery channel (or any other example of science dumbed down for the masses) says?

emperical evidence can prove quite a bit

Emperical evidence proves nothing other than the existance of said evidence.

But I wonder if Einstein and Openheimer would have appriciated that comment of yours after the bomb worked?

Einstein and Oppenheimer would have know before the bomb worked that their theories were tentative and they would have known even after the bomb worked that their work was still tentative, because they were scientists.

and this is all off-topic so I won't being replying to anymore off-topic stuff from you in this thread.
