I hate to hoist you on your own petard here Bryan, but as you stated, replicating is not the same as originating. Man did not create DNA. All available data suggests nature did. There is no evidence of other intelligent agents at this time.

If you want to prove ID, you have to find other intelligent agents first. Then, you have to observe those other intelligent agents, and make educated assumptions, hypotheses, and finally theories, that relate to them. At that point, one can intelligently evaluate if an intelligence was behind the origin of DNA.
