QM - still working.
Relativity - still working.
String - too early to say yet.

Heck we even still teach Newton in schools even though it got replaced by relativity.

You quite simply don't have the slightest clue what you're going on about.

Let me guess..... Is it a CODE?
[/QUOTE]

Is ACGT a code? Yes. Invented by humans. And we have 60+ years of biological medical history to back up that fact.

Are the compounds they refer to a code? Not as far as can be scientifically determined.

Possible though. In which case the fundies should be able to tell us exactly what it is and what mechanisms are responsible along with provide scientific evidence of it.

But since your "alternative explanation" is Goddidit with magic that kinda makes any and all evidence utterly superfluous.

The horse is dead.you can stop beating it now.
Nay, I say! The horse is not dead! It is the eternal horse! Horsey horsey clippety clop!

The 'debate' over whether a god exists or not is ultimately only an exercise in philosphical mastrubation. It's no more provable than whether we're all really trapped in the Matrix. The problem however is that fundies still think their baseless religious opinions are not only scientifically valid, but also relevant to public schools. Both science and the Constitution say otherwise. Fundies care about neither. Hence to this day they still mount PR campaigns and political pressuring to get their religious opinions pushed onto other people's kids because they aren't happy with foisting it on their own.

Remember play attack the holy spirt?
Show just how much blasphemy to the holy spirt you could do to bother the Christians?
I remember, it's kind of like watching a man set fire to him self to boycott matches. Yes sir you made your point.

Boy that sure hurt me! LOL. Idiot.
(MAT 12: 31-32) Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
(MARK 3:28-29) I say to you, Every sin of man can be forgiven, and the blasphemies that they may use, but he that will swear against the holy ghost has no forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal death.
(LUKE 12:8-10) I say to you, Who ever will acknowledge me before others, him will the son of man also acknowledge before the angels of God. But he that denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. And who ever does speak against the son of man, it will be forgiven him. But to him that swears against the holy ghost he will not be forgiven.
(HEB 6:4-6) It is impossible for any that were once instructed, and have been given the holy ghost, and accepted the holy ghost, and have known the word of God, and the knowledge of the world to come, to fall away, and then to come again to repentance, seeing that they crucify the son of God again, and place him in an open shame again.
(HEB 10:26) If we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there can remain no more sacrifices for our sin.
(2 PET 2:20-22) If after you escape the world through the knowledge of Christ, you return to it, your end is worse than before you did.
(1JOHN 5:16) There is a sin unto death.

The evidence is clearly indicating that living things are following patterns from former things of the same kind.

DNA is simply a patterned compound that passes down instructions to each kind and things propagate with cycles.

The system itself is what cycles and the patterned compounds are instructions as to what path it is to take.
