It’s so cool how we have the tools to peek into the microscopic world of chromosomes and DNA. Just think about that for a second. Because some of the most brilliant minds who ever lived on planet Earth were only able to imagine those things. But now you and I can just type a few words into a browser and almost instantaneously find tons of colorful images.
Chromosomes and DNA are so tiny they almost seem imaginary.
And yet, we have pictures.
And that reminds me of something my Dad used to say, occasionally, if I failed to do something he had told me to do: “Do I have to draw you a picture?”
Yeah, he was unspeakably cruel. How could he say such things to an adorable dude like me? Because I didn’t do nuttin’ bad.
Sorry. Let me climb back out of that rabbit hole.
Here’s the thing. And, if you’ve followed anything I’ve written here on my website, you know I stand on the firm foundation of overwhelming evidence for a Designer God. That’s because of all the design evidence found in, well, basically everything.
And your chromosomes and DNA are picture perfect examples of that.
In fact, I’ve heard it said that DNA is like the “fingerprint of God” inside us.
But I disagree.
Because DNA is information. And it’s way too complicated to have ever just randomly evolved over millions, billions, or even trillions of years.
I’ll never forget how an atheist once told me that evolution must obviously be true because “well, here we are.” Of course, that’s circular reasoning (aka tautology). Because you don’t get to make a logical argument that says we’re here because evolution is true and evolution is true because we’re here.
Well, I won’t keep you any longer. I just wanted to share some tidbits with anyone who might be interested in the incredible evidence for your Creator found right inside you. And I hope your DNA is functioning at its most optimum level possible in this broken world.
23 + 23 = 1
I got a little bit from my mom
I got a little bit from my dad
I got my DNA from the great Yahweh
And it’s the only life I’ve had
Twenty-three plus twenty-three is one
Chromosomes were a mystery
But that mystery is gone.
Twenty-three plus twenty-three is one.
Until we learn to add it up…
The lesson must go on.
