1. The pattern in DNA is a code.


Only in that it's a physical process that maps the inputs to the outputs.  It doesn't use arbitrary symbols to abstractly represent other values like communication codes do.  There is more than one definition of "code".

2. All codes we know the origin of are designed.


False.  We know many natural processes that encode information with no need of external intelligence.  

Quote
3. Therefore we have 100% inference that DNA is designed and 0% inference that it is not.


Since 2 is false so is your conclusion.

Quote
Provide one, just ONE example of coded information arising by natural mechanisms, without intelligence involved, and you top my proof. Just one.


I'll give you two.  Tree ring widths encode data about the rainfall conditions in the year of their formation.  The spectral lines in starlight encode data on the chemical composition of the star that produced them.
