What gives you the prerogative to state that DNA is not "purposeful"?<quoted text>
No,not purposeful. But yes, somewhat ordered.
I was comparing to ice, not liquid water. Ice is far more ordered than liquid water.
Only showing you do not understand the concept of entropy in this context.
I have given several alternative and equivalent definitions.
If you are interested in applying the SLoT, then you need to use the definitions appropriate to the use of that law. By those definitions, a frozen corpse has less entropy than a living person. By that, we have that the corpse is more 'ordered'.
I would suggest that you do not know what it means to be ordered. Once again, the degree of disorder is the amount of information required to completely describe the microscopic system. You can measure that information in bits where each bit corresponds to an entropy of k(ln 2).
What is your definition of "purpose"?
I realize that be ascribing purpose to DNA you are walking on thin ice from an atheistic perspective....
I must assume that is DNA is not "purposeful", then you believe that there is o purpose in your existence?
You are mingling religion and science.
And what do you mean DNA is "somewhat ordered"? Is a textbook of quantum mechanics "somewhat ordered?"
And where are you getting that definition of "order."
Does a sphere have more or less order than a randomly-shaped rock?
A sphere can be defined by one point and a radius. A rock requires many points to define its shape.
However, a sphere is more ordered because its surface has PREDICTABILITY. This is where you fail to understand the SLoT as it applies to biological systems.
