My Exquisite Daily Planner: My DNA

Where did time go? We could argue timespace continuum, but I will just beg forgiveness. I hoped to be back here sooner, but suffered a document loss. Now then . . .

A visitor to this blog brings up the topic of how dna gets it programming. I am not a scientist, nor even a smart student. So I am borrowing from other statements to support my belief and my point. These quotes are from articles you can follow-up on and are food for thought, meat to chew on.

Perry Marshall at http://www.cosmicfingerprints.com/ifyoucanreadthis1.htm asks
“Do you realize that every one of you has billions of copies of yourself represented in the form of DNA? In every cell of your body there is a copy of you. It's an exact plan for your body and it is an exquisitely designed coding system. What do these things say about evolution? What is information? Where does it come from? Have you ever thought about that? What is information? Can you define information?
Excerpt: “. . . modern technology, to date, has not produced an information storage mechanism that is more dense than DNA.) All the information in your hard drive is a lot bulkier than the information in your cells.”
His date shows; “DNA is not just a molecule, DNA is a language. It is actually very comparable to English and human languages in the way that it is structured.
The idea exists in a symbolic form before it's physically built. An idea, in order to exist, has to be represented by a language. Even to have an idea in your mind you have to talk to yourself and have images in your mind of what you want to do before you do it. So we know this: Ideas always precede implementation, always, no exceptions. All languages come from a mind. No exceptions. There are no languages that do not come from a mind. So we know that DNA was designed. A mind designed DNA, therefore God exists.”

Anders Branderud at http://bigthink.com/ideas/16509 “Timespace has a beginning. It is a fundamental law of physics (causality) that every physical occurrence in the universe has a cause. The fundamental laws of physics then require a cause of the universe ex nihilo (since timespace has a beginning); i.e., a Prime Cause Singularity that is non-dimensional and independent of timespace. To conclude the above paragraphs: Fact: No thing nor event in the known universe or laws of physics lacks a cause. Assume: There is no Prime Cause (Creator / Singularity). Ergo: There is no universe. Fact: There is a universe. Therefore: the statement that was assumed is proven to be a false statement by reduction ad absurdum (proof by disproof). (Since "There is no Creator" is proven false, the opposite is true: There is a Creator.)”
DNA does not bursts into being an assortment of living beings by dividing, subdividing and multiplying. It exists by connection in the right places. Every molecule contains information about how to connect to the next, and where. How is it connected in the right places to deliver the desired result? It exists by plan, by carefully coursing out a map, placing each molecule like a piece in a puzzle in the location where it will fit flawlessly and continue to connect to the other pieces and thrive. Intelligent design?
So DNA is a design. It is a language for instructing cells to ‘become’ a particular living being. Language was planned. It did not evolve unassisted from guttural sounds into hundreds of different verbal sounds and expressions. Man did not simultaneously crawl out of the sea at different locations around the world, discard gills and fins, develop legs - and then grow a language determined by his location, environment, climate and dietary needs. Yes, language developed, by education and the naming of things and actions. But thank God it didn’t just spew from men’s mouths in various languages anymore than his own body exploded into cell-divisions and mutations. It was by design that the Brits would speak English, the Chinese speak Chinese, the Philippians’ speak their own rich language, the French speak those round, romantic tones.
My collection of molecules did not evolve from a mad, wild circus of cells dashing about and accidentally bumping into one another, sometimes exploding into more, sometimes dividing.
They were thoughtfully planned with my own particulars for hair color and texture, for my own fingerprint and eye map, and for the ability to articulate - and are mine alone. No copies available. They were given by a superior, creative being.
My God.

  1. In response to Tim's comment about evolution having nothing to with religion: that is true. But it also proves the existence of God. It is the opposite of creation. Creation suggests a greater being, someone who deserves worship and dedication.
    It is what I choose to believe. That is the beauty of faith. I do not need to understand everything. I simply make a choice.
