Statement: No natural process, which resulted in information
forming automatically in matter, has ever been observed.
Answer: This is simply not true. Look at this (full text here) description of production of random, functional RNAs.
Statement: ”There is
no known observable process by which new genetic information can be added to
the genetic code. None.”
Answer: Look here. Scroll down to 'You here this one a lot'.
Statement: If you calculate the chance that a protein with a certain amino-acid sequence will form at random, you end up with ridiculously low numbers.
If you could make such a calculation, it would be irrelevant, as you
have no idea how efficient the original protein was. Very low efficiency
correspond to very low specificity, and hence a large number of
On top of that proteins with the same function in different organisms can be as different as proteins with completely different functions.
