The DNA Code - Solid Scientific Proof Of Intelligent Design - Perry Marshall - video
The following 3 step syllogism is a completely valid inference as far as science is concerned:
1. DNA is a code
2. All codes we know the origination of are designed.
3. Therefore DNA is designed.
Biophysicist Hubert Yockey determined that natural selection would have to explore 1.40 x 10^70 different genetic codes to discover the optimal universal genetic code that is found in nature. The maximum amount of time available for it to originate is 6.3 x 10^15 seconds. Natural selection would have to evaluate roughly 10^55 codes per second to find the one that is optimal. Put simply, natural selection lacks the time necessary to find the optimal universal genetic code we find in nature. (Fazale Rana, -The Cell's Design - 2008 - page 177)
Ode to the Code - Brian Hayes
The few variant codes known in protozoa and organelles are thought to be offshoots of the standard code, but there is no evidence that the changes to the codon table offer any adaptive advantage. In fact, Freeland, Knight, Landweber and Hurst found that the variants are inferior or at best equal to the standard code. It seems hard to account for these facts without retreating at least part of the way back to the frozen-accident theory, conceding that the code was subject to change only in a former age of miracles, which we'll never see again in the modern world.
Deciphering Design in the Genetic Code
Excerpt: When researchers calculated the error-minimization capacity of one million randomly generated genetic codes, they discovered that the error-minimization values formed a distribution where the naturally occurring genetic code's capacity occurred outside the distribution. Researchers estimate the existence of 10 possible genetic codes possessing the same type and degree of redundancy as the universal genetic code. All of these codes fall within the error-minimization distribution. This finding means that of the 10 possible genetic codes, few, if any, have an error-minimization capacity that approaches the code found universally in nature.
The coding system used for living beings is optimal from an engineering standpoint.

Excerpt: The genetic code could well be optimized to a greater extent than anything else in biology and yet is generally regarded as the biological element least capable of evolving. *******www.pnas****/content/103/28/10696.full
Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software we've ever created.

The Capabilities of Chaos and Complexity - David L. Abel - 2009
Excerpt: "A monstrous ravine runs through presumed objective reality. It is the great divide between physicality and formalism. On the one side of this Grand Canyon lies everything that can be explained by the chance and necessity of physicodynamics. On the other side lies those phenomena than can only be explained by formal choice contingency and decision theory—the ability to choose with intent what aspects of ontological being will be preferred, pursued, selected, rearranged, integrated, organized, preserved, and used. Physical dynamics includes spontaneous non linear phenomena, but not our formal applied-science called “non linear dynamics”(i.e. language,information).
i.e. There are no physical or chemical forces between the nucleotides along the linear axis of DNA (where the information is) that causes the sequence of nucleotides to exist as they do. In fact as far as the foundational laws of the universe are concerned the DNA molecule doesn’t even have to exist at all.
Stephen Meyer is interviewed about the "information problem" in DNA, Signature in the Cell - video
The DNA Enigma - Where Did The Information Come Frome? - Stephen C. Meyer - video
Stephen C. Meyer - Signature In The Cell:
"DNA functions like a software program," "We know from experience that software comes from programmers. Information--whether inscribed in hieroglyphics, written in a book or encoded in a radio signal--always arises from an intelligent source. So the discovery of digital code in DNA provides evidence that the information in DNA also had an intelligent source."
As well as coding optimization, DNA is also optimized to prevent damage from light:
DNA Optimized for Photostability
Excerpt: These nucleobases maximally absorb UV-radiation at the same wavelengths that are most effectively shielded by ozone. Moreover, the chemical structures of the nucleobases of DNA allow the UV-radiation to be efficiently radiated away after it has been absorbed, restricting the opportunity for damage.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Attraction by some definition means (drawing power,seduction,romance, etc)...sounds good! but what happen when your girl friend or boy friend dumps you. Does the law of physical attraction still apply, can you get them back when all looks lost. Yes, you can and it's easier than you think...find out more here! *******savemyrelationshipfast.blogspot****

You need to understand the physics behind gravity for the CSET. In this video I show you the Apollo gravity test conducted on the moon and how it applies to gravity here on earth. The video ends with a sample CSET test problem about two balls being dropped of different sizes and which one hits the ground first.

Short video on metrics: basic questions to ask yourself about your personal metrics: where they came from and why were they given to you?
First in its own series, Part Two in the Results of the Lie of Human Free Will series. Very broad subject: introductory questions and comments.
Every year, everyone is going to be asked to do more with less. How can you do this when there are only so many hours in a day, especially when it seems technology is giving us more to do (not less to do)? The answer: You simply have to break the laws of physics. Physics says there is only so much time and that’s all you’ve got, but that’s nonsense because you can multiply time. You can leverage time with technology. Daniel gives you one example with critical care nurses. Watch the video to find out how he used a low-tech solution to multiply time for these nurses.
Are we really thinking about what we’ve got and what we can do? It’s not about speed… it’s about velocity. Find out your strategic velocity so that you don’t crash and burn and so you can get there in the most efficient and cost effective way and achieve the goal you want to accomplish.
