Theist argument DNA is a language
On one of the local news forums where I occasionally post, we recently had a theist going on and on about DNA is a language and nothing can make a language but intelligence.
Oddly enough, when I googled DNA is a language, I got scores of theist websites that are playing this to the hilt. All claiming that DNA proves their god exists, which is quite a leap to make of course.
But even more disturbing, was quite a number of websites that push the whole " There has to be some sort of creator out there for this to happen " kind of thing.
Of course, there are quite a number of other pages that delve into what the word "language" actually means when it comes to DNA and genetics and sort of turn this argument over on it's head. But these pages can get fairly in depth and could be somewhat complex to the average person.
In layman's terms, what are some good rebuttals for people that try to use this argument ?
“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”
