Bornagain77 is Alive! And he sounds unwell. News writes this OP: Phillip Cunningham: Everything is Information which introduces Phil's Magnum Crapus, “Information is Physical (but not how Rolf Landauer meant)” It's in the form of a YouTube video, of course.
In it, he radically misunderstands the work of respected scientists and mathematicians like Rolf Landauer, Roger Penrose, Norbert Weiner, Werner Heisenburg, Johann Kepler and Galileo and completely accepts the work of such "alternate" non-authorities as Michael Egnor, David Berlinski, Steven Meyer and some guy who made a video.
The video also contains some drawings which, while not quite up to the level of Kairosfocus's best work, do confuse the issues while missing the point altogether.
The astute viewer will also notice that BA77 includes several proofs of authenticity in the captions, which are littered with ,,, and ,,,,.
Phil also narrates the video, of course, and if you like Denyse’s public speaking skills, he will have you in hog heaven. If you're not that kind of person, you will still be reminded of hogs and wonder where they learned to make videos. The only person who comes close to Phil's knowledge, reasoning skills and speaking ability is Granville Sewell. (I sometimes wonder if BA77 might be the love child of Granville and Denyse.)
Unfortunately, I was unable to complete the video because the immaterial knowledge in my brain began to react strongly with reality and dangerously overheat when BA77 started to talk quantum about 2/3 of the way through. I was forced to imbibe cooling beverages until normal operating temperatures were restored, at which time I said, "Fuck this," and started Googling for porn.

...after reviewing the arguments, I’m inclined to believe that the critics of ENCODE’s bold claim were mostly right, and that the proportion of our genome which is functional is probably between 10 and 20%. --Vincent Torley, uncommondescent.com 1/1/2016
