Complex molecules make up every little bit of your body. Your DNA is so complex it boggles the mind. And it’s so unique that you’re the only one exactly like you. Well…aren’t you something?!
Now, don’t get the “big head” over this revelation. The same could be true of every other person on the planet. So “you” means any person who happens to be reading this at this moment. Still…it’s an awesome thing to ponder.
And while you’re pondering that…eyeball this. Your eye. See if you can wrap your retinas around this: if you tried to simulate, on a computer, just 10 milliseconds of the complete processing of a single nerve cell from one retina, here’s what your computer would have to be able to do.
It would have to be able to solve 500 simultaneous nonlinear differential equations 100 times. Remember…that’s every 10 milliseconds…and it’s only one nerve cell in one retina. That would require a super duper supercomputer. Now…when you consider that there are “10 million or more such cells interacting with each other in complex ways, it would take a minimum of 100 years of  Cray time to simulate what takes place in your eye many times every second”. *
And that’s just one eye. In case you hadn’t noticed…a lot of people have two.
Here’s a couple more little facts about complex molecules and organs…just in case that last tidbit didn’t impress you. An adult human brain contains 1014 electrical connections. That’s a hundred thousand billion, and it’s more than all the soldered electrical connections in the whole world. And that’s one brain. And take the heart…it’s only about 10 ounces, and it’s a pump that keeps pumping on its own for about 75 years. Now that’s complex.
But of course, you can still pass this off as serendipitous fate if you want to, but as I always say…give me God. I’d much rather take my “chance” with Him than mere chance and circumstance.
In Faith, Hope, and Love…
