The Intelligent Design Challenge

OK, here it is.  Any ID proponents must determine, using principles of Intelligent Design, must determine if this sequence is designed or not.

Your answer should include the method that you used to determine your answer such that anyone with a modicum of math skills and basic knowledge should be able to reproduce the same result you got (it’s called science).

Please note that the sequence above contains well over 500 bits of information.

Please note that the history of the sequence is not important.  ID proponents claim that DNA is designed, even while knowing the history of the DNA as a product of reproduction and change over time.  Think of this as a control.  This is a sequence that is either designed or random.

I’ll probably ask some follow up questions at a later date.  We’ll give it a few weeks to see if anyone responds with an actual answer.

This is not a debate, this is a question.  Can any ID proponent do it?

    lol, what principles of intelligent design?

  2. Sophist says:

    but on a more serious note, ths looks like an interesting statistics problem so I think I’ll play with it a bit. I’ll post a profile in about a week.

  3. LRA says:

    How are they going to rule out pareidolia?

    *snicker*
    :P

  4. OgreMkV says:

    LRA, remember the ID mantra is ‘if it looks designed, it is designed’. So, if it looks like it, then it is. I wonder if I should have edited the linebreaks to form a face…

  5. GSLamb says:

    I remember the last time a challenge like this was issued.
    The ID position boiled down to “Tell us which one is designed and we’ll tell you which one is designed.”
