The Big Talk Theory of the Origin of Life(BTTOL)

MISSION STATEMENT: Refutation of thermodynamics as a biogenesis. BTTOL researchers are organized around the sole purpose of preventing any biogenesis other than a Personal Cause from being legally recognized.

Message in the BTTOL Overview

In order to arrive at the mechanism which orginated the genetic code, we might first observe that life is a code.
This suggests that codes pre-existed genetics.  Codes are sequences whose complexity can be classified into one of three categories:

OSC - Ordered Sequence Complexity
RSC - Random Sequence Complexity
FSC - Functional Sequence Complexity

Of all sequences in existence, only expressions of human intelligence (eg langauges)  were believed to exhibit FSC.
But According to Abel & Trevors 2005:

"FSC  is invariably associated with all forms of complex biofunction, including biochemical pathways, cycles, positive and negative feedback regulation, and homeostatic metabolism. The algorithmic programming of FSC, not merely its aperiodicity, accounts for biological organization.
No empirical evidence exists of either RSC of OSC ever having produced a single instance of sophisticated biological organization. Organization invariably manifests FSC rather than successive random events (RSC) or low-informational self-ordering phenomena (OSC)."

So we have that the genetic code only fits into the FSC category, heretofore a "Sentients Only" club.
This brings us to the crux of the Big Talk Theory.  It is an observable fact that for a sequence to be functional, it's originating source must have the functionality to produce FSC, and must therefore be of higher FSC.
Thus all FSC originates from sources of higher FSC. An example would be a computer program which produces music.

There are no examples of FSC giving rise to sequences of higher complexity (FSC).
Recall that there are only two sources of FSC: intelligent (prescriptive) expressions and genetic code.
While genetic code is of limited FSC, intelligent expressions are of arbitrary FSC. While genetics can originate some forms of intelligent expression in humans, it cannot account for expressions which are of higher FSC than itself.

So, we  are left with the conclusion that genetics (life) must have originated from some form of intelligent expression, eg. life
was spoken into existence.

Hence we have the "Big Talk" theory of the orgin of life.
