The Capabilities of Chaos and Complexity: David L. Abel - Null Hypothesis For Information Generation - 2009
To focus the scientific community's attention on its own tendencies toward overzealous metaphysical imagination bordering on wish-fulfillment, we propose the following readily falsifiable null hypothesis, and invite rigorous experimental attempts to falsify it:
Physicodynamics cannot spontaneously traverse The Cybernetic Cut: physicodynamics alone cannot organize itself into formally functional systems requiring algorithmic optimization, computational halting, and circuit integration.
"LIFES CONSERVATION LAW: Why Darwinian Evolution Cannot Create Biological Information":
Excerpt: Though not denying Darwinian evolution or even limiting its role in the history of life, the Law of Conservation of Information shows that Darwinian evolution is inherently teleological. Moreover, it shows that this teleology can be measured in precise information-theoretic terms. (Dr. Dembski points out that the Conservation Law is clearly differentiated from the common definition of Theistic Evolution since mainstream Theistic evolutionists, such as Ken Miller and Francis Collins, hold that the Design found in life is not separable from the purely natural processes of Darwinian evolution, whereas Dembski and Marks are clearly saying the Design/Information found in life is detectable, can be separated from the natural processes we see in the universe, and "can be measured in precise information-theoretic terms".)

Astonishing DNA complexity demolishes neo-Darwinism
excerpt of paper: The astonishing complexity of the dynamic information storage capacity of the DNA/chromosome system is, in itself, a marvel of engineering design. Such a magnificent solution to such a monster logistics problem could surely only come from a Master Designer. But the nature of the majority of this information poses an impossible conundrum for neo-Darwinists.
