In Matthew 11:25, Jesus declared, "I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven And earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.”
Watch now as 12 “innocent” children teach Bill Nye, the Science Guy, the “real” scientific truth, which is not being taught, behind the origin and complexity of God’s coded master design for all life, DNA.
Deoxyribonucleic Acid, or DNA can be expressed as a WRITTEN language that creates the blueprint that makes you who you are. Geneticists tell us that there are trillions upon trillions of combinations that make up human DNA, and your unique DNA was formed at the time of conception. You were your own human-being – not just from birth – from day one. - David Rives
The DNA found inside each of our 37 trillion body cells contains all of the genetic instructions for building the proteins that make up the tissues and organs of our bodies. A DNA molecule consists of two opposing strands of sugar and phosphate molecules that form a double-helix “twisted ladder" connected by rungs of protein bases of adenine - thymine, cytosine - guanine (A, T, C, and G).
The arranged sequences of these four protein bases makes you “uniquely you.” God has carefully encoded the DNA of all His created species, both plant and animals, with their own unique genetic instructions to ensure that they will continue His order to
Each cell in your body contains 46 chromosomes with your complete set of genetic information on each strand. If you were able to completely uncoil a single strand of human DNA, it would be over 6 feet tall. But just how much genetic information is stored on one single strand? Let's find out. One strand of human DNA consists of approximately 3.1467 billion base pairs (a number just slightly less than the number of seconds in 100 years: 3.15576 billion seconds).
Using Microsoft Word, with a Times New Roman 12-point font on 8.5" × 11" paper and displaying A, C, G and T in capital letters in equal numbers, you can fit 57 letters on a line and 46 lines on one side of a page, thus representing 2,622 base pairs per page (single sided). Using Microsoft Word, with a Times New Roman 12-point font on 8.5" × 11" paper and displaying A, C, G and T in capital letters in equal numbers, you can fit 57 letters on a line and 46 lines on one side of a page, thus representing 2,622 base pairs per page (single sided). Thus, 1,206,980 single-sided sheets would be needed to display the entire human genome in this way. A modern ream of printer paper consists of 500 sheets of paper and is about 2.1" thick.
One would therefore need to use 2,414 reams of paper to print the human genome in the format just described. A stack of that many reams of paper would stand 424.4 feet tall, approximately midway in height between the Statue of Liberty and the Washington Monument.
The chicken egg is one of the best examples of God's Genesis 1:28 command to "be fruitful and multiply".
During mating - an unceremonious affair that lasts less than 2 seconds - the rooster's sperm, containing half of the male chicken's 78 chromosomes, is released into the hen's funnel shaped organ called the oviduct. The moment a rooster's sperm (39 chromosomes) combines with the hen's egg (39 chromosomes) to produce a fertilized egg (78 chromosomes), a miracle takes place. The genetic instructions inscribed inside the rooster's sperm and the hen's egg combine together to start a process that ends 21 days later with a perfectly formed baby chick.
Now translate this same hidden process to one the greatest of all living things that God, the master DNA programmer, has created.
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse." ~ Romans 1:20.
The Bible records that Moses died at 120 years of age. Deuteronomy 34:7 says that "His eye had not dimmed, and his vigor had not diminished." The big question is, "why can't we do the same?" The reason we age is simple. Take a moment and picture the plastic caps on shoelaces — they protect the ends and stop the string from fraying. That’s one way scientists describe telomeres — caps of DNA God carefully placed at the ends of our chromosomes to protect our cells from aging. Unfortunately, because of genetics and poor lifestyle choices these protective caps wear down over time until they get so short that they can no longer protect our cells. Shorten telomeres are linked to a variety of chronic and degenerative diseases like diabetes, strokes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and early death. Watch this video to find how you can protect your telomeres and possibly out live Moses.
The rate at which telomeres shorten determines the pace at which you age. Scientists view telomere length as a reliable marker of your true biological age (as opposed to your age by years).
Immortality means that our life on earth will not be interrupted by death. When sin is finally done away with at Jesus' 2nd coming and the earth is completely restored, so also will God do away with aging (our DNA will never stop replicating), death and disease. All of God's created creatures, including man, will once again live together in a state of peace and loving fellowship with Him and one another, forever and forever.
