Yes, word games and arguing over what arbitrary meaning a sequence of ASCII characters should have is what passes for philosophy these days. Meanwhile REAL philosophers have discovered that there is more than one type of infinity,

Cantor was a mathematician.
Yes, he was quite interested in theology, but he published nothing in that field.





that something can be true but have no proof,

Only that for all theory there is some (arithmetical) truth unprovable. Yes.





that complex animals are developed by random mutation and natural selection,

That random mutation and natural selection participate in the development, but many things partially already developed participates too.



that the key to the heredity process is DNA and it's entirely digital,

Relatively to the laws of chemistry or physics, yes. This by itself does not entirely make the process, or DNA itself digital.




and that the universe is not only expanding but is accelerating. And the people who write "philosopher" in the occupation box of their tax returns continue to argue over the dictionary definition of words. Pitiful.

You just seem physicalist without knowing that it is an assumption. You have still not anwser how you predict first person expectation for any experience in physics when we assume computationalism. (or more easy: physicalism + a universe robust enough to run the UD).
