All coded languages are observed to originate from an intelligence, no examples to the contrary can be given

You know, I've been thinking about this and I can come up with dozens of examples of coded language without intelligence.

First, what is language?  In this case, I mean it to be the method of transmitting information from one individual to another individual by a set of rules and processes understand by both parties to convey certain information (maybe Arden can stick his $0.02 in here).

We obviously cannot use 'spoken' or 'written' for language because that would eliminate DNA.

With that being said, the following are all examples of language developed by non-sentient creatures:
1) bees' wiggle dance (used to tell other bees where the flowers are)
2) marmots' and similar species' alarm calls
3) wolves' howling, barking and scent marks
4) chemical signals emitted by corals

Etc. etc. etc.

Well, so much for that.
