A popular antievolution argument often deployed by "intelligent design" advocates concerns the non-universality of the genetic code:Jonathan Wells, Paul Nelson, Stephen Meyer, Michael Behe, and Cornelius G. Hunter.
I'm opening this thread for discussion of the canonical genetic code and its variants, and also for examination of the claims of ID advocates concerning the canonical code.
Kenneth Miller of Brown University has a couple of essays on this topic: here and here.
