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.

Joe should talk to these people.

I've got their Shakespeare on DVD. Hamlet in eight and one-half seconds, give or take a few.
