Gpuccio: Functional Information Methodology

Speaking only for myself, I don’t think there is any reason to discuss design, or “ID theory,” in this context until the very basic questions asked by @swamidass are addressed. And I would reiterate that asking this question outside of even a basic phylogenetic analysis/approach is futile.

It is not possible to talk meaningfully about “functional information” without these basic foundational tasks being done.
