In the last installment, we looked at creationist Kevin Anderson chucking abiogenesis research without ever really discussing it in the AiG article “Three Puzzles Evolution Can’t Solve.” Now, we turn to Brian Catalucci (the airplane pilot with a master’s degree in computer science and engineering) who is going to tell us about genetic “information”. I very much dislike the term “information” being used in a genetic sense because it usually does not mean anything in particular. Creationists cannot quantify genetic information, they cannot point to where it exists in the genome, etc. Catalucci begins his section in exactly the same way.
