Because of my fascination with scientific discoveries, and desire to follow evidence wherever it leads, I’ve been following this fascinating story about the newly-discovered use of DNA: information storage. It seems that promising experiments are underway using artificial DNA to store digital information. Its capacity is well beyond anything man has yet invented. Maybe DNA was designed? No, we are to believe that it just happened and came together. And further, once it did, it started building every living thing that has ever been on earth–by means of mutations and natural selection. The problem is, mutational rates and the usefulness of mutations together are far too unstable and weak to drive such as thing as the origin of the species. If DNA was designed, do we have to draw the line of design “there and no further”? The rest was just mechanics, right up to the men who are using DNA to store information?
