Reading:  Psalm 14:1

The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.


In searching for information on DNA, I was struck by the language used by scientists concerning design. How anyone can study DNA and not believe in a Designer is beyond me.

Consider the following: “Building a person involves following a set of instructions. Your body stores those instructions in a long, twisted molecule, DNA. It controls everything about the way you look, from the color of your eyes to how tall you are to the width of your feet.”

It has been estimated that if the information carried by DNA in one cell were printed out, it would require 400,000 pages at 500 words per page to give full expression to that one cell. Scientists estimate that your body contains between 60 and 100 trillion copies of your genetic code, yet all of your DNA combined composes only .0007% of your body weight.

Forget about microchips and hard drives. God’s means of storing information is so compact that the combined genetic code of every person that is living, or has ever lived, could be contained in a thimble.

Purposed design demands a Purposed Designer. Standing on the horizon of the genetic frontier, I see the Lord.
