DNA - Poly-Functional Complexity equals Poly-Constrained Complexity
As former president of the French Academy of Sciences Pierre P. Grasse has stated:
“What is the use of their unceasing mutations, if they do not change? In sum, the mutations of bacteria and viruses are merely hereditary fluctuations around a median position; a swing to the right, a swing to the left, but no final evolutionary effect.”
Random Mutations Destroy Information - Perry Marshall - video
Needless to say, this limit to the variability of "simple" single cell organism, bacteria, and viruses, is extremely bad news for the materialist. Materialists simply do not have the "beneficial" mutations they need to make evolution work. The following site has numerous quotes, studies and videos which reveal the overwhelmingly negative mutation rate which has been found in life:

It should be noted that evolutionists like to play head games with Claude Shannon's broad definition of information since "non-functional" information bits may be considered information in his broad definition, yet when looked at carefully, Shannon's work actually fully supports Intelligent Design as is illustrated in the following video and article:

"DNA is Not a Code"
DNA – The Genetic Code – Optimal Error Minimization & Parallel Codes – Dr. Fazale Rana – video
Here, we show that the universal genetic code can efficiently carry arbitrary parallel codes much better than the vast majority of other possible genetic codes…. the present findings support the view that protein-coding regions can carry abundant parallel codes.
The data compression of some stretches of human DNA is estimated to be up to 12 codes thick (12 different ways of DNA transcription) (Trifonov, 1989). (This is well beyond the complexity of any computer code ever written by man). John Sanford – Genetic Entropy
The multiple codes of nucleotide sequences. Trifonov EN. – 1989
Excerpt: Nucleotide sequences carry genetic information of many different kinds, not just instructions for protein synthesis (triplet code).
Dr. Jerry Bergman, “Divine Engineering: Unraveling DNA’s Design”:
The DNA packing process is both complex and elegant and is so efficient that it achieves a reduction in length of DNA by a factor of 1 million.

Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software we’ve ever created.

The Coding Found In DNA Surpasses Man’s Ability To Code – Stephen Meyer – video
Bill Gates, in recognizing the superiority found in Genetic Coding, compared to the best computer coding we now have, has now funded research into this area:
Welcome to CoSBi – (Computational and Systems Biology)
Excerpt: Biological systems are the most parallel systems ever studied and we hope to use our better understanding of how living systems handle information to design new computational paradigms, programming languages and software development environments. The net result would be the design and implementation of better applications firmly grounded on new computational, massively parallel paradigms in many different areas.
Human Genome “Infinitely More Complex” Than Expected – April 2010
Excerpt: Hayden acknowledged that the “junk DNA” paradigm has been blown to smithereens. “Just one decade of post-genome biology has exploded that view,” she said, speaking of the gene regulation was a straightforward, linear process of gene coding for regulator protein that controls transcription. “Biology’s new glimpse at a universe of non-coding DNA – what used to be called ‘junk’ DNA – has been fascinating and befuddling.” If it’s junk, why would the human body decode 74% to 93& of it?

Excerpt: “Another compilation of gene lesions responsible for inherited diseases is the web-based Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD). Recent versions of HGMD describe more than 75,000 different disease causing mutations identified to date in Homo-sapiens.”
HGMD®: Now celebrating our 100,000 mutation milestone!
I really question their use of the word “celebrating”.
The burning question is where in the world are all the hypothetical beneficial mutations??? The two most popular examples given Sickle cell and Lactase persistence, Sickle Cell is only beneficial in a limited sense and clearly detrimental in a molecular sense. Whereas Lactase persistence is the same in that it confers an advantage but it loses information in the genome for turning the lactase enzyme off. thus both of the most popular examples cited by evolutionists lose functional information.
