Does DNA exhibit intelligence or sentience?


From our sexual preferences, the food we eat, our choice of lifestyle etc we are told DNA controls us and makes our decisions for us like a "big brother". Does this prove that this molecule has complex intelligence? How else could so many things about us be totally ruled by a plain old molecule?

    I understand your argument but isn't the DNA both the data and also the applying of data? What other force is ultimately applying it?

    Are you saying this may qualify as a kind of intelligence? After all it is alleged DNA controls our intelligence.
