What about the digital design of DNA? What about ORDER in general?

What about it? Even random events have statistical probabilities and their frequency distributions generate a standard normal curve--if that ain't order, I don't know what is.

I’m impressed, Rudder. I think that’s the first correct usage of the phrase ‘begging the question’ I have ever seen on FR.

Not sure you understand statistics.

A frequency distribution of a variable is not the same thing as properly or intelligently ordering discrete events or DNA elements. You can certainly take a statistical frequency distribution of a monkey hitting a typwriter keyboard, but I defy you to produce a monkey that can type something intelligent, like for example, a novel, a short story, a computer program or even the alphabet in proper order.

Alright, from one who must wear tightass logic pants, I'll put it another way...

WHO or WHAT introduces the sequence in a DNA chain?

I'll remind you "information" just doesn't spontaneously erupt.
