To play devil's advocate for a minute, the elemental composition of rocks, e.g. (SiO2)n is infinitesimally simpler than the elemental composition of
the genetic bases e.g. C10H13N5O4 which then form triplet codes (e.g. 3x previous) which are used to produce specific amino acids, several of which
are combined to produce specific 1* --> 2* --> 3* structures which have a binding site which is exactly the shape required to perform function X.
I can understand why someone would look to creationism to explain such a complex system, but all I'm saying is that there have been several systems
throughout history which have been described as "too complex to be produced by nature, therefore god" which have been shown to be completely
attributable to evolution e.g. the eye (no, your link does not disprove it, whoever said it, it was awful, absolutely shameful misinterpretation).
We can't say how the genetic code came about at present, but saying "we don't know" does not mean "god did it."
