apply this scientific definition of information to nature,
a very important result ensues. This is because nature overflows
with an immense body of information (as, for example, in the
case of DNA), and since this information cannot be reduced
to matter, it therefore comes from a source beyond matter.
One of the foremost advocates of the theory of
evolution, George C. Williams, admits this reality, which
most materialists and evolutionists are reluctant to see.
Williams has strongly defended materialism for years, but
in an article he wrote in 1995, he states the incorrectness
of the materialist (reductionist) approach which holds that
everything is matter:
have failed to realize that they work with two more or less
incommensurable domains: that of information and that of
matter… These two domains will never be brought together
in any kind of the sense usually implied by the term "reductionism."
…The gene is a package of information, not an object...
In biology, when you're talking about things like genes
and genotypes and gene pools, you're talking about information,
not physical objective reality... This dearth of shared
descriptors makes matter and information two separate
domains of existence, which have to be discussed separately,
in their own terms.
Therefore, contrary to the supposition
of materialists, the source of the information in nature cannot
be matter itself. The source of information is not matter
but a superior Wisdom beyond matter. This Wisdom existed prior
to matter. The possessor of this Wisdom is God, the Lord of
all the Worlds. Matter was brought into existence, given form,
and organized by Him.
