Stephen Meyer on the origin of digital information in DNA

Joel Kontinen

It is not difficult to see that the information embedded in DNA looks like a digital code. In a recently released video, Dr. Stephen Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell, argues that the best scientific explanation for the digital information in DNA is that is has been designed intelligently.

In his book In the Beginning Was Information (1997), Dr. Werner Gitt came to the same conclusion as Dr. Meyer does, namely that a message requires a sender, and an intelligent message requires an intelligent sender.
