Need some assistance
I know I posted this previously, but since it was an old thread I thought some people might skip over it.
I've created this argument:
P1 - Code requires intelligence for usage
P2 - "DNA code" has no intelligence
C1 - DNA is not code
My argument is that DNA functions with out human intervention. If no humans existed, there would be a swamp some where with bacteria or fungus, etc, growing and using DNA.
Code, in order for it to function, needs intelligence, such as Morse Code, or programming code, or law codes.
Bacteria, fungus and viruses do not have a nervous system. They have no brain. They don't "think" they react to their environment.
Since this is true, then DNA isn't actually a code. It does function like a code, but it is only because we have labelled it as so.
Any thoughts? Is this argument secure? or should it be modified? I'd love to hear some feedback.
