structure of DNA was discovered by two scientists named Francis
Crick and James Watson. Despite being an evolutionist, Crick said
that DNA could never have emerged by coincidence.
Did you know that the nucleus of each of the trillions
of cells making up the human body includes a data bank big enough to fill
a 900-volume encyclopaedia?
DNA is a huge molecule hidden in the nucleus of every
living cell. All physical traits of a creature are coded in this helical
molecule. All the information about our bodies, from the colour of our
eyes to the structure of our internal organs and the form and functions
of our cells, are encoded in sections called genes in DNA.
If you leave a bacterium in a suitable environment,
in a few hours you will see that it has produced hundreds of copies
of similar bacteria. Every living cell has the ability to "copy
itself". Until the discovery of DNA, how this miraculous process
took place was unknown. With the discovery of DNA, it was revealed
that every living cell has a "data bank" that stores all the information
about itself. This discovery displayed the wonder of creation.
The DNA code is made up of the sequence of four different
bases. If we think of each of these bases as a letter, DNA can be likened
to a databank made up of an alphabet of four letters. All the information
about a living thing is stored in this databank.
includes not only the plan of cells, but also the complete body
plan of living things. The structure of our internal organs, or
the shape of a bird's wings, in short, everything is encoded in
DNA down to its smallest details.
If we attempted to write down the information in DNA,
this would take up approximately a million pages. This is equal to an
encyclopaedia forty times bigger than The Encyclopaedia Britannica, which
is one of mankind's greatest accumulations of information. This incredible
information is stored in the tiny nucleus of our cells measuring about
a thousandth of a millimeter in size.
piece of information is derived from an intelligent source that
brings it into being. The fascinating information in DNA is evidence
of the supreme wisdom and creative power of God.
It is calculated that a DNA chain small enough to fill
a teaspoon has the capacity to store all the information contained in
all the books ever written.
DNA has an alphabet with four "letters".
Of course, such an amazing structure could never have
been formed by chance and this proves that life is created by God. Not
surprisingly, evolutionists are unable to bring any explanation to the
origin of DNA. However, they still embrace the "chance" hypothesis
simply for the sake of keeping the theory alive. A well-known molecular
biologist from Australia, Michael Denton, explains this in h is book Evolution:
A Theory in Crisis:
To the skeptic, the proposition that the genetic programmes
of higher organisms, consisting of something close to a thousand million
bits of information, equivalent to the sequence of letters in a small
library of one thousand volumes, containing in encoded form countless
thousands of intricate algorithms controlling, specifying, and ordering
the growth and development of billions and billions of cells into the
form of a complex organism, were composed by a purely random process is
simply an affront to reason. But to the Darwinist, the idea is accepted
without a ripple of doubt - the paradigm takes precedence!11
THE INFORMATION IN THE HELIX
The DNA molecule comprises millions of base
pairs organized in a helical shape. If a DNA molecule in only
one of our cells were unfolded, it would make a one-metre long
chain. This chain, squeezed into the cell nucleus, is only as
big as a hundred thousandth of a millimeter with an amazing "packaging"
