you know that the nucleus of each of the trillions of cells making
up the human body includes a data bank big enough to fill a 900-volume
DNA is a huge molecule hidden in the nucleus
of every living cell. All physical traits of a creature are coded
in this helical molecule. All the information about our bodies,
from the colour of our eyes to the structure of our internal organs
and the form and functions of our cells, are encoded in sections
called genes in DNA.
The DNA code is made up of the sequence of four
different bases. If we think of each of these bases as a letter,
DNA can be likened to a databank made up of an alphabet of four
letters. All the information about a living thing is stored in this
structure of DNA was discovered by two scientists named Francis
Crick and James Watson. Despite being an evolutionist, Crick
said that DNA could never have emerged by coincidence.
If you leave a bacterium in a suitable environment,
in a few hours you will see that it has produced hundreds
of copies of similar bacteria. Every living cell has the ability
to "copy itself". Until the discovery of DNA, how this miraculous
process took place was unknown. With the discovery of DNA,
it was revealed that every living cell has a "data bank" that
stores all the information about itself. This discovery displayed
the wonder of creation.
includes not only the plan of cells, but also the complete
body plan of living things. The structure of our internal
organs, or the shape of a bird's wings, in short, everything
is encoded in DNA down to its smallest details.
If we attempted to write down the information
in DNA, this would take up approximately a million pages. This is
equal to an encyclopaedia forty times bigger than The Encyclopaedia
Britannica, which is one of mankind's greatest accumulations of
information. This incredible information is stored in the tiny nucleus
of our cells measuring about a thousandth of a millimeter in size.

that brings it into being. The fascinating information in
DNA is evidence of the supreme wisdom and creative power of
It is calculated that a DNA chain small enough
to fill a teaspoon has the capacity to store all the information

DNA has an alphabet with four "letters".
Of course, such an amazing structure could never
have been formed by chance and this proves that life is created
by God. Not surprisingly, evolutionists are unable to bring any
explanation to the origin of DNA. However, they still embrace the
"chance" hypothesis simply for the sake of keeping the
theory alive. A well-known molecular biologist from Australia, Michael
Denton, explains this in h is book Evolution: A Theory in Crisis:
To the skeptic, the proposition that the genetic
programmes of higher organisms, consisting of something close to
a thousand million bits of information, equivalent to the sequence
of letters in a small library of one thousand volumes, containing
in encoded form countless thousands of intricate algorithms controlling,
specifying, and ordering the growth and development of billions
and billions of cells into the form of a complex organism, were
composed by a purely random process is simply an affront to reason.
But to the Darwinist, the idea is accepted without a ripple of doubt
- the paradigm takes precedence!11
THE INFORMATION IN THE HELIX
The DNA molecule comprises millions
of base pairs organized in a helical shape. If a DNA molecule
in only one of our cells were unfolded, it would make a
one-metre long chain. This chain, squeezed into the cell
nucleus, is only as big as a hundred thousandth of a millimeter
with an amazing "packaging" system.
