Re Einsteins, 7-26 10:56 AM: "That DNA is such an example of course begs the question." Wrong question. The proper question is: Can you (or anyone) show that the purported design in DNA arises from any means other than natural selection? This is an existential question, which means that an affirmative answer can be determined by demonstration. But YOUR phrasing is effectively: Can you show that natural selection is insufficient to construct DNA, such that a "designer" must be posited? Which is a universal question, meaning that in general no answer is possible.
Bottom line: If you want to sell the idea of "intelligent design" with respect to DNA, you will have to demonstrate the source of the intelligence and the methods by which it was applied. Nothing short of this will suffice.
