He begs the question when he says that information can be reduced to particles. Does Vic knows about the UDA? I appreciate some papers by Vic Stenger in physics, but he clearly is not aware of the comp mind-body problem. Physicalism has been falsified. Materialism reinstates the kind of "God" of the pseudo-religions. It confirms, a bit like Dawkins, that materialism and christianism/creationism are really Aristotelian allies against a coming back to serious theology. They differ on the presence of a creator, but keep a naive stance with respect to the creation. In a sense comp is far more "atheist", because there is not creator nor creation, just a web of dreaming numbers, and some notion of unknown and unnameable truth.
