The evolution of many complex traits, such as echo location in whales, requires the modification or creation of numerous proteins, physical structures, and neural connections.
I will flesh out the concept of biological information, and I will explain why significant quantities of it cannot be generated through natural processes.
“Coevolutionary processes cannot drive macroevolution,” explains Dr. Miller. “Again it requires intelligent design.”
Theorists hope to alleviate a deficiency in Shannon information theory, which dealt only with the structure of a communication, not its semantics.
The standard evolutionary model is incapable of driving major transformations such as a fish evolving into an amphibian.
