From Pos-Darwinista

“If you want to understand life, don’t think about vibrant, throbbing gels and oozes, think about information technology”. – Richard Dawkins, 1991, The Blind Watchmaker, p. 112.

Pos-Darwinista adds,

I think he got it wrong – if we want to understand life we should and must think about genetic information.

Sure, but once it’s “technology,” it is not random or without intelligence. Darwinism cannot bear that weight.

But who knows, with enough name recognition, ol’ Dawkins could end up getting credit for developing the idea.
