You don't know the origin of DNA, so it is presumptuous to assume that the origin is natural.

We don't know the origin of the gravitational force. Is it presumptuous of us to assume that gravity in natural?


It may or may not be. Things that can be demonstrated to be natural should be assumed to be natural I suppose.

You've taken my statement out of its context. Seems to me Centromere wants to answer the question "Does DNA have a natural or an intelligent origin?" by saying, in effect "Why don't I just say its natural, declare victory, and end the discussion?". I generally don't accept assuming what you are trying to prove as a valid argument.
