Modern Science Confirms Christian Claims

Tyson likes to  use Cosmos to advance Evolutionist propaganda. He also deletes most of my tweets.

Contrary to his opinion and that of many others, our best and latest science proves,

“In the beginning God”… 

—————–

“If the universe had not been made with the most exacting precision we could never have come into existence. It is my view that these circumstances indicate the universe was created for man to live in.” –Robert Jastrow, agnostic astronomer, author of God and the Astronomers, former head of Goddard Space Center at NASA

“An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have had to have been satisfied to get it going.” –Francis Crick, biochemist and spiritual skeptic, shared the Nobel Prize for discovering the molecular structure of DNA

“There is for me powerful evidence that there is something going on behind it all….It seems as though somebody has fine-tuned nature’s numbers to make the universe….The impression of design is overwhelming.” – Paul Davies, an internationally known British astrophysicist and author

“When you realize that the laws of nature must be incredibly finely tuned to produce the universe we see, that conspires to plant the idea that the universe did not just happen, but that there must be a purpose behind it.” –John Polkinghorne, a leading Quantum Physicist

“It was my science that drove me to the conclusion that the world is much more complicated than can be explained by science, it is only through the supernatural that I can understand the mystery of existence.” – Allan Sandage, astrophysicist and discoverer of Quasar stars

“Many have a feeling that somehow intelligence must have been involved in the laws of the universe….I strongly sense the presence and actions of a creative being far beyond myself and yet always personal and close by.” –Charles Townes, Nobel Prize-winning physicist

“There is for me powerful evidence that there is something going on behind it all….It seems as though somebody has fine tuned nature’s numbers to make the Universe….The impression of design is overwhelming.” –Paul Davies

“A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a superintellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question.” –Fred Hoyle

“Discoveries of the last half of the 20th century have brought the scientific community to the realization that our universe and our planet in the universe are so remarkably unique that it is almost impossible to imagine how this could have happened accidentally, causing many agnostic scientists to concede that indeed some intelligent creative force may be required to account for it.” –Dr. Walter Bradley, Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A & M University

Foremost Genetic Expert Francis Collins Says DNA is “The Language in Which God Created Life”

Christ's Resurection from Death

Mankind Was Created by Jesus -The Word Made Flesh, and With His Words,

and the Result is That We Have Words at Our Core.

Jesus is God incarnate. 

Yes, He is the Word made flesh that dwelt among us as John’s Gospel tells us in chapter 1 ,”all things were created by Him”.

This ,”Word”, coincides with Genesis in the Bible where God “said, let us create man in our image”.

I’m saying that DNA is literally a detailed account of what God said when He created man.

We have evidence that God exists in ourselves.
In DNA we are witnessing through science the transcending of the natural realm into physical evidence for the miraculous.

Read this excerpt from a book written by the world’s foremost Geneticist Francis Collins –

—————————-

“As the leader of the international Human Genome Project, which had labored mightily over more than a decade to reveal this DNA sequence, I stood beside President Bill Clinton in the East Room of the White House…”

“Clinton’s speech began by comparing this human sequence map to the map that Meriwether Lewis had unfolded in front of President Thomas Jefferson in that very room nearly two hundred years earlier.”

“Clinton said, “Without a doubt, this is the most important, most wondrous map ever produced by humankind.”

But the part of his speech that most attracted public attention jumped from the scientific perspective to the spiritual. “Today,” he said, “we are learning the language in which God created life.

We are gaining ever more awe for the complexity, the beauty, and the wonder of God’s most divine and sacred gift.”

“I had worked closely with the president’s speechwriter in the frantic days just prior to this announcement, and had strongly endorsed the inclusion of this paragraph.”

“When it came time for me to add a few words of my own, I echoed this sentiment:

“It’s a happy day for the world.

It is humbling for me, and awe-inspiring, to realize that we have caught the first glimpse of our own instruction book, previously known only to God.”

“Why would a president and a scientist, charged with announcing a milestone in biology and medicine, feel compelled to invoke a connection with God? Aren’t the scientific and antithetical?….

for me the experience of sequencing the human genome, and uncovering this most remarkable of all texts, was both a stunning scientific achievement and an occasion of worship.”

The True Origin of the Species – Will the Theory of Evolution Be One of the Greatest Jokes in the History Books of the Future ?

image

“I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially to the extent to which it has been applied, will be one of the greatest jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity it has.” 

~Malcolm Muggeridge ~

I agree with Muggeridge’s prediction.

DNA is at the core of all living things.

And incredibly, the more we learn about it, the more sophisticated we find it to be.

Those who both discovered DNA and those who know it best agree, it simply could not have originated by random chance.

Some of them believe aliens seeded DNA on earth or a comet brought it here but none can begin to explain how it arrived at the present complexity that makes you and I all we are.

It’s just not mathematically possible in 15, 30, or even 300 billion years.

Even if life was seeded here by aliens or brought here from elsewhere by a comet, this much remains unanswered, “Who originally designed our designers ?”
At some point there has to be an Undesigned Designer who always was, and is eternal.

An Original Originator.

And DNA is like an ancient echo from the origin of all living things and reflects an intelligence beyond our modern comprehension.

We have the ancient Biblical records that proclaim ,”God spoke and it was,” and we have the modern day proof of what God said in the scientific evidence of DNA.

Given the undeniably marvelous and miraculous complexity and sophistication of DNA and that it is the most sophisticated of all known languages, and this level of sophistication uses only four biological letters, (I call them letters because that is what geneticists call them), and given the fact that the Bible says that all living and nonliving things came into existence by God’s spoken word, one can say that the known scientific evidence of DNA is observational proof and scientific validation of the Biblical book of Genesis account of God as Creator of this world in it’s entirety.

Don’t be fooled.
Accept only the Original.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
21 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
(2Cor 5:17,21 NKJV)

The Cosmos Within – The Greatest Scientific Discovery of All Time – A Highly Sophisticated Language Is at the Core of All Living Creatures

image

Compare this digital rendering of Human DNA with the stained glass window below it. DNA is magnificently ordered. Information with order is proof of intelligent origin.

The book of Genesis in the Bible records that God spoke all things into existence. God spoke and it was. DNA is an echo of what God said.

The question of origin is one of the biggest questions in life.

The answer to the source of life, our origin, could help answer the other big questions of, meaning, morality, and destiny.

The problem is that ideas and theories formed before the discovery of DNA.

And the facts about DNA unfolded little by little over decades, almost completely without being noticed for the deepest meaning of DNA.

Darwin formed his theory of Evolution long before DNA was even discovered, and even longer before we would discover the complexity of DNA.

DNA is not a complexity that is born out of randomness, but it is a complexity that is highly sophisticated and ordered.

In fact, the complexity of DNA transcends the realm of science and ushers us into the realm of the miraculous. Scientists agree despite themselves.

Sir Francis Crick for instance, who took credit for discovering the incredibly ordered appearance of the Double Helix form of DNA,
believed aliens must have brought DNA to Earth.

But in time we would learn that even Crick’s theory of alien supreme beings sending life on our planet only moves the question of a intelligent engineer / creator back one step without answering the question at all.

We are left to then ask, who was the supreme being who engineered and created the aliens ?

Later Crick would partially concede by calling the presence of life as we know it, Almost a miracle.

The issue here is that the universe is not old enough for random chance to assemble our level of complexity, and the same is then true for all life in the universe, such as alien life forms.

Mathematicians cannot find evidence to support Darwin’s theory of Evolution. On the contrary. When they calculated the odds of time plus matter plus chance arriving at complex human protein formation, they discovered the odds of Darwin’s theory are,”beyond ridiculous”. Even with 13 billion years since the Big Bang, our human proteins could not have formed by chance.

But we have understood far more about human proteins than we understand about our DNA language, which appears far more complex than proteins. Yes, DNA is a language. Remember that God spoke all things into existence?

One recent discovery, for example, is that geneticists recently found another layer of DNA that was previously “hidden” , it works in harmony with the previously known DNA.

And before that, scientists discovered that DNA that was labeled as unnecessary or “junk DNA” , is in fact absolutely necessary and serves functions we could not have previously envisioned.

It took years to map Human DNA, but mapping DNA is not understanding DNA. Scientists who know DNA best say that understanding the DNA language will keep them busy for the next 100 years.

Even if the universe was several times older than 13 billion years, the complexity of DNA could not have formed by random chance.

To put it in contrast, we are told that the universe has 10 to the 85th power total atoms. That’s the number ten followed by 85 zeros. A big number for sure.

Now picture a number 471 times bigger than that. That is the odds that life came into being by Darwinian random chance. It really is beyond ridiculous. That is 10 to the 40,000th power against Darwinian theory.
Even if the the presence of carbon in the universe halved that number, as some proposed, it would still be beyond ridiculous to believe Darwin.

Each strand of DNA contains 3.1 Billion bits of highly ordered information. The recently discovered additional layer of hidden DNA will no doubt increase that number above the 3.1 Billion bits of information. Our universe is 13 billion years old. You don’t have to be a mathematical genius to see evolutionary random chance simply could not have the time to assemble our DNA.

Even Hawking can’t understand the complexity of why the universe goes to,“all the bother of existing”.

Apparently Hawking discovered that in the properties of the laws of physics, the big bang had to be precise withing 1 Quintillionth of a second or the universe would have immediately re-collapsed on itself.

This was only one of some 31 contingent events that all had to happen with such exact properties and in precise correlation to each of the other that it would take more faith to believe the Big Bang happened by mere random chance than it would to believe the Big Bang was carefully orchestrated by God.

Hawking confidently stated that the universe didn’t need God?

Why does the scientific society cling to old scientific theories that have been proven false by newer scientific fact ?

That question is an even tougher one to answer.
What we now know about DNA means that it takes more faith to believe in evolution than to believe that God is our Creator.

As time goes on and scientific gains are made in all areas of proven scientific fact, all facts increasingly support the miraculous and Biblical account of God as Author and Creator.

Science really is discovering how God did it.

God spoke, and it was, and at the core of life DNA echoes what God said. Information with order equals intelligence. The all knowing intelligence of God.

Consider this. God made us for a relationship with Him. And God has gone to even greater lengths to make a way for us back to Him.

As it is written in God’s word about Jesus in the Bible.

“giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.”
(Colossians 1:12-16)

DNA is Evidence of God – “order with content,” is proof of Intelligence Based Origin -Lee Stroeble

 Our genetic code is language, and is but a record of what,”God said.”

Lee Stroeble , former Court Journalist for the Chicago Sun Times, presents the overwhelming scientific evidence found in our DNA to support the Biblical God as our Creator.

Using the Story line from the movie,”Contact”, Stroeble makes his case.

Stroeble points out that Carl Sagan said that if we ever received an ordered message with content from outer space, then we could reasonably conclude that the message originated from intelligent life.

Though Sagan denied God as creator, his claim for ,”order with content,”as proof of Intelligence would come years after his death in modern Genetic scientific discoveries in DNA.

The Bible record of creation in the book of Genesis repeats the words,”God said”,11 times during the creation of the world and all living things.

The correlation between Genesis and the language of DNA at the core of all living things means our genetic code is but a record of what,”God said.”

DNA is a ,”message with content,” far more sophisticated than our greatest minds can fully grasp.

DNA is a coded language so sophisticated that our greatest minds still can’t fathom it fully, and those most familiar with the ongoing work say we will be deciphering it for the next 100 years. (Genetic Encyclopedia Project,ENCODE, 2012)

Appendix

The 3% of our DNA that is “STRUCTURAL” meaning that it defines our biological characteristics, has been mapped.

The rest of our DNA appears to work as a series of switches comprising a communicational network for our structural information, and was previously considered random ,”junk”.

It is this apparent communication network that we know least about.

This is the part of our DNA that is subject to discovery.

JUNK DNA- May Not Be Junk After All

(Quoted from Gene exchange no 2, 1996)In another reminder that we may not understand the full ramifications of genetic engineering, Science magazine recently reported new work on the function of genetic material*. Scientists have long been puzzled by the fact that fully 97% of the DNA in human cells does not code for proteins and appears to consist of meaningless sequences. The possibility that this apparently useless DNA has some as yet unknown function continues to tantalize scientists.The Science article reports on a paper suggesting that the non-coding 97% of the DNA, commonly referred to as junk DNA, might have a function.

The authors of the paper employed linguistic tests to analyze junk DNA and discovered striking similarities to ordinary language. The scientists interpret those similarities as suggestions that there might be messages in the junk sequences, although its anyone s guess as to how the language might work. (* F. Flam, Hints of a language in junk DNA, Science 266:1320, 1994)

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:26,27)

Breakthrough Discovery of DNA – We Are Far More Intelligently Designed Than We Knew Before

wpid-20140808_193404_2.jpg

“It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design.”

~Antony Flew ~ 

Anthony Flew was the most vociferous atheist of the 1970’s, 80’s, and 90’s. and then he discovered the similarities of the Biblical account of word based creation in the Bible and word based DNA in all living things and people.

Scientists continue to discover that we are far more intelligently designed than we previously knew.

“After all, says Gerstein,(one of the Gnome Project leaders), it took more than half a century to get from the realization that DNA is the hereditary material of life to the sequence of the human genome. “You could almost imagine that the scientific programme for the next century is really understanding that sequence.” (Mark Gerstein, a computational biologist at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, who helped to design the data architecture for ENCODE project involving over 500 scientists)

Scientists have discovered that at least 80 % of our DNA is active in all our biological processes.
Prior to these results scientists believed only 2 percent of our DNA to be active and the rest was ,”junk DNA”.
This new clinical study proves that DNA is far more intricate and complex than previously believed.

The new results are a blow to the Evolutionary Theorists of Darwinism.

The fact that the Genesis account of creation in the Bible shows that ,”God Spoke, and it was,”has long been the Intelligent Design community’s greatest scientific evidence for proving God created everything.

Life ,and all living things have DNA.

DNA is a language. The words often used in reference to DNA and its function are, gnome, code, all meaning information in sophisticated sequence and sophisticated purposes.

Given the fact that there are only 4 letters to the DNA alphabet, and this scientific team thinks science will be about deciphering its meaning for the next 100 years ?, its safe to say we are not here by accident.

Our DNA reflects the Genesis record of creation in the Bible where everything came to be through the spoken word and language of Almighty God.

DNA is a detailed record and result of what God said at the creation of all living things.

But Christians have always been in the place where science will eventually arrive.

Psalm 139:14
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

The link below is to one of the many articles released.

http://www.nature.com/news/encode-the-human-encyclopaedia-1.11312

God has a promise and eternal hope for you and me. This time it involves becoming a new creation. This is God’s promise.

2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

Faith is How Our Finite Minds Grasp the Concept of an Infinite God

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

Hebrews 11:1

Faith is belief.  (Hebrews 11:1)

Faith is confidence. (Also Hebrews 11:1)

Faith is trust.

This faith is a belief, confidence, and trust in another being, who is almighty God, creator of all the universe.

This faith is the pathway to hope, life and fulfillment in the inmost being,and the satisfying of our greatest longings in the deepest reaches of our souls.

To know and to be fully known.

To love and be fully loved.

For some the problem is accepting that God exists.

They reject that everything came from something, (God, an Intelligent being).

Atheists and Agnostics believe that everything came from nothing. ( they can’t explain  how the highly sophisticated language of DNA came to be).

(No it can’t be aliens because then we ask who created them ?)

We all know the name Alfred Einstein.

His greatness is based on many mathematical theories that have since become reality, and many that are considered too advanced even for modern science.

In other words, Einstein could map the future with accuracy using scientific mathematics and formulas.

This is also true for mapping the past with accuracy using scientific mathematics and formulas.

The mathematical odds make the amount of order in creation of a single bacterium impossible to reach by odds of 10 to the billionth power to 1 against Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Science is in serious denial.

The order and intelligence reflected in creation is impossible for Evolutionists to explain.

This is where God makes sense.

God is our infinitely intelligent creator, and all of creation reflects some attributes of His order and intelligence.

A being of infinite power and intelligence created all that is.

The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.

Psalm 24:1,2

Now faith begins to make sense, and even seem logical.

How can finite beings fully comprehend an infinite being  that is God?

Only another God could do that. And there are no other Gods.

“I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.”

Isaiah 45:5 

Faith is simply acknowledging that God is who He has said He is,that He can do what He has said He can do,and that He is perfect,Holy and He is love.

An important word to note here ; Christ was perfect. Christians and those who have professed to being Christians are not perfect.

And history is rife with examples of abuses of power in virtually every venue, enterprise, nation, government, organization, banking system, role of leadership and  committees both large and small.

Anywhere power is, man’s pride has played  the part of being a god in the form of despot and dictator,…even Christianity.

The Bible even records in the book of Galatians an occasion when the freedoms Christ’s cross bought us were being threatened by human regulations.

The book of Galatians was written to Christians who had begun to slip back into a moralistic form of Christianity that would appeal to self by adding to the gospel a human ceremony and making it an amendment to Christ’s sacrifice on the cross as necessary for salvation.

In fact, even the crucifixion of Jesus Christ was orchestrated, lead, and carried out by the moral elite religious leadership of Jesus time who helped pressured the Romans to carry out the cruel crucifixion of Jesus.

Only Jesus is perfect and will always be the only perfect example of who and what a Christian should be.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28,29,30

As prevalent as pride is in our world today, and given the contrast of how humble our God is, is faith in God not the logical choice for finite humans in relation to an infinite God?

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”

Hebrews 11:6

Faith is the means of coming into a relationship with Almighty God.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

Jesus paid our sin debt. Simply pray,” Lord save me, come into my heart.” ( because God is already listening to your heart).

“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.”

Matthew 10:32

Please tell us if you did ask God to save you. We would love to hear from you and encourage you.

His Love is Reflected in His Creation

Any artist who creates art leaves something of themselves visibly reflected in their creation.

We too can see the unique qualities of our Creator God reflected in His work.

“Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”Romans 1:19,20

His Gentle beauty.
image

His Quiet beauty.

His Assuring Beauty.

His Majestic Beauty.

His Still Beauty.

His Grand Beauty.

His Radiant Beauty.

His Guiding Beauty.

The very fact that all people share an appreciation for beauty proves that deep inside of us are qualities that reflect the fact that we were created in His image and therefore we need God and sense Him in creation.

God is love, and deep down inside we recognize Him in His creation as our hearts respond to these messages like a love letter from a soul mate, and we stand in awe as we try to drink it all in.

We alone of all creation are given to being creative and reflect this attribute of our Creator God.

And to deny the obvious and unique qualities of God reflected in all the natural world around us, which fills us with awe and wonder, is to compromise the very integrity of our own intellect.

“The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalm 53:1

He exists.
He is love.
He wants to begin a loving relationship with you through Jesus Christ.

DNA Is Evidence Supporting God As Creator – Intelligent Design

Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core

We can observe marvelous harmony between religion and science in DNA.

We know two profoundly remarkable things about the science of DNA and the Genesis creation story of the Bible. That is, Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core. And neither is mere coincidental chance.

Our current knowledge about DNA can only describe it as a language. Four letters make this genetic code, yet it is so complex that our greatest minds work tirelessly for years to decode its meaning, yet are only beginning to understand anything about it. At the core of all things living is a language? The Bible says that God said…and it was. Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core.

Such harmony illustrates that science and religion are not in opposition to each other, as some would have it appear. True unbiased science points to the credibility of the creation story.

The mathematical odds of such complexity occurring by random chance are ten to the billionth power against random chance. If you type this number in standard 12 point font, on standard typing paper and filled each sheet with zeros, each sheet being about .004 thousandths of 1 inch thick, and stacked all the sheets,one on the other, the stack of paper for this number would be about 500 feet high.

Mathematics is a tool acceptable to scientists and has rendered the random occurrence of DNA mathematically impossible even with the oldest possible age of the Earth.

As for the scientific society powers-that-be at large, and why they refuse to accept the evidence, you need only to rent an old copy of the academy award-winning movie about the life of Louis Pasteur to see an example of this kind of bias. (Black and White).

Pasteur tried to make medical scientists aware of germs, and that Doctors needed to wash their hands between surgeries and child deliveries or they would infect patients with microbes. He was touted as a fool, even after he saved the French wine industry with his Pasteurization process. They would say,” How could something so small as a microbe, (germ), make a man sick and die?” Pasteur, and anyone else for that matter, could see these small microbes under a microscope, which had been invented many years prior. The evidence was plain to see.
Pasteur was basically martyred by years of ridicule, (he had a stroke), though today scientists hail him as a hero.

Watch the first 15 seconds of this Historically accurate movie.

But the scientific society does not change its theories easily.

DNA is used in courts of law as evidence.
DNA is also evidence proving the creation story in the Bible. Each of us has detailed evidence of what God said in our own DNA.

Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core.

That is great science and religion.
