Not sure of your question.
In order for life to begin on Earth, you needed information. Somehow this information needed to be inputted into the genetic code.


When Watson & Crick discovered the genetic code for life, what they bumped into was the code for information. I think one of them actually called it that. As humans, the only source we know for information-rich data is from an intelligent agent. So, in order for life to begin on Earth as we know it, some source of intelligence had to input information into a code, the genetic code.

BTW - The word hypotheses is plural for hypothesis.
