Gradualism was Darwin’s assumption backed by no (none, nada, zero, zilch, zip) equations whatsoever, much less genetics.
This is not the topic here, but if you insist, I updated my "Discrete vs. Gradualism post to clarify to people like you:
Some argue that large collections of discrete points appear continuous, thus justifying gradualism. This view were acceptable if and only if the contribution of the discrete points were strictly cumulative (such as when many water molecules form water waves).
The list of discrete elements in biology includes but is not limited to: atoms, molecules, biochemical reactions, DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, genes, chromosomes, organelles, cell types (pro/eukaryote), cell division (mitosis/meiosis), sex type (male/female), body organs, organ systems, and organism classification. Changes at the discrete micro level including mutations and exposure to free radicals, radiation, and misfolded proteins are not cumulative and can potentially impact the entire organism. Continuous measure such as temperature, volume and weight are not true biologic properties (they apply to rocks and everything else) as these change over the life of organisms and are primarily statistical measures at population level in particular populations, environments and time.
Now, where is your list of proven continuous properties of organisms? Your computer models should represent reality, not pure fantasy.
Not possible, and you should know it, if indeed you learned anything at all about programming. This is not about free will, but about simple math and logic. No matter how badly you want to be right, 1 GB will not specify the simplest bacteria, let alone a human.
Look, you want to be right, but don’t seem to grasp the problem. Here is a clarification if data and computers are not your thing:
A bit is a bit is a bit whether magnetic, silicone or DNA nucleotide. Some bits may certainly carry more important information than others, but only to the extent they link (index) to other information. “Fetch the human” can be encoded in a single bit if the only alternative is “fetch the chimp”. “Assemble or Fix a human” as in “transplant into a dying patient a cadaver hart” on the other hand requires a lot more information if this is to be carried out by a transplant surgeon in training – in fact this is the kind of information that may require on the order of Gigabytes in teaching materials. “Make a human” as “…from one zygote and the available atoms and molecules” is the type of request that demands an unknown number of bits, for certainly exceeding by many times the 1 GB of data available in the zygote’s DNA.
Indexing is like searching on Google. You enter a few bits, but Google must have a massive database to answer correctly. Without that massive database, your search returns nothing.
And genes are expressed or not when given the same data (environment). No different.
The list of byproducts is still discrete. You’re not going to get any carbon molecules unless your reaction was impure and you can tally up the atoms and molecule to perfect precision.
Transcription factors are additional information representing development cycle, inter-cellular signals, the environment, cell cycle control, or pathogens. It’s obviously a complex system but all this is discrete information. Complex ≠ analog.
There’s no such thing as “natural selection”. It’s all hocus-pocus but that’s another topic.
What about “DNA not essence of life”? Do you understand the argument?
