On the source of biological information

Эукариотическая клетка. Источник:

Selection can only reduce the amount of genetic information as it only passively filters out unfit organisms. Where then does genetic information come from?! How can randomness be responsible for the generation of statistically significant amounts of biological information?! Where is the genuine source of it?

The only adequate answer to this question is, intelligence extraneous to the system {the organism + the environment}.

The evolutionist claim that selection coupled with stochastic factors such as mutations and genetic drift is the source of statistically significant amounts of genetic information does not have any empirical support whatsoever. If the claim really held, more than enough empirical support for it would be readily available, considering the large amounts of genetic information observed in the biota. However, as we all know, this is not the case. The enthusiasm of the pioneers of abiogenesis has given way to pessimism and the tacit realization of the fact that between inanimate nature and living matter lies a chasm of functional complexity.
