At UD StephenB stakes his claim:
Support the claim that one must always understand the context of a message in order to know that it is, indeed, a message.Describe a specific context, the absence of which would make it impossible to know if a meaningful message consisting of 100 characters was designed by an intelligent agent.
Here’s 283 characters.
I read his challenge as saying any meaningful message consisting of 100+ characters is self-evidently designed and no understanding of the content is required to determine if the message is designed.
As I can’t post at UD, perhaps StephenB would like to post here what he makes of the above potential message and if it is indeed “intelligently designed”?
