The above shows the problem. How does Aci know that I have posted anything in this thread,and it is not the Internet throwing up noise fits?
ANS: he is implicitly applying a filter on functional specificity and complexity, so he infers that it is not plausible that posts are noise rather than intelligent action.
(The various metrics simply work to quantify this. And, A is apparently unaware of the work of Durston et al who have quantified FSC metrics for 35 protein families, or the Evo Informatics Lab, who are working out the issue of the impact of active information on evolutionary searches. He is also not aware that something so basic as the file sizes we see for ever so many documents are measures of functionally specific information. Most importantly, he is again trying to duck the challenge to show how on undirected chance plus blind necessity, we have empirical evidence of the creation of such FSCI. Without positive evidence of that the materialistic scenarios for origin of life and of body plans are so much empty speculation. )

PS: Aci, you have indeed reappeared, but only to show how your dodging the important things to focus on trivia, is inadvertently revealing. Having already adequately spoken to such secondary matters [for the astute reader aware of problems with regulation in 3rd world environments, e.g. think of recent scandals on Chinese products . . . ], I need not prolong exchanges on what was from the outset a side issue raised for distractive effect.
I posted this in response to KF's non-reply:
Gordon, I'll take all the above verbage as an admission that you, nor can anyone else provide an example of the explainatory filter being used on any biological system. Which, of course, just so happens to be the case with the ID metric CSI.
FYI: the only matter you not-so-adequately addressed is your admission of ignorance on poultry production and genetic manipulations used in the aquaculture industry around the world.
Other than that you appear to be confused that human fabrications, i.e., internet blogs, somehow represent self-replicating biological entities.
