This thread created for Conversation comments on Gpuccio: Functional Information Methodology
Gpuccio: The rationale could be expressed as follows: there is no known necessity law that generates those levels of FI without any design intervention. Therefore, FI in non design systems can arise only by chance.
The last sentence is demonstrably false. Just as many ID-Creationists before him Gpuccio is ignoring processes which combine chance and necessity. Iterative processes which use feedback from selection and which retain heritable traits to produce each subsequent generation are empirically seen to created a virtually unlimited amount of new FI. The amount produced only depends on how long the process is allowed to run.
Evolution of course is just such a process.
