Robb,

Try to compress the works of Shakespear- CSI. Try to compress any encyclopedia- CSI. Even Stephen C. Meyer says CSI is not amendable to compression.

A protein sequence is not compressable- CSI.

Try that sometime, Joe.  I think you'll find that Shakespeare (your spelling is uh ... original) compresses to about a half of it's original size.  Ditto for an encyclopedia.

If you want something that doesn't compress, try a string of random letters.

P.S. Stephen C. Meyer doesn't know much about compression either.
