A creationist on where the genetic code came from

Busy, busy, busy last night and all day today until late, namely because I’m out of town on business. My schedule has been packed, and I won’t be home until late. There’s no time to post one of my characteristic pearls of verbosity. So what do I do when this happens?

Be grateful that YouTube exists, that’s what. With a little planning ahead and a few minutes’ work, I can make sure that the Respectful Insolence you all know and love keeps flowing while I’m away, only this time with some help. This time around, I’m going to do a couple of audience participation/open thread kind of posts. It’s called “list the creationist fallacies.” This post is part 1 of this endeavor. This short video, called Which Came First, the DNA or the Protein?, is the target. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to answer the question contained therein and/or demonstrate why it is a typical creationist canard. Coupled with my previous entry, it is a daunting task that ought to keep you entertained (I hope) until I return tomorrow.
