ON September 7 it was announced that Prof Brendan Loftus and his team had succeeded in sequencing the complete genetic code of an Irish person. They are to be congratulated on a masterful piece of work.
The extraordinary complexity of this research can be gauged from the fact that this genome was comprised of 3.1 billion sub-units of DNA. All of these are packed into a cell which is just about visible to the naked eye.
In order to develop into a perfect human being not only must all 3.1 billion bits be present, they must be present in a particular sequence. Evolutionists would have us believe the first such cell came about as a result of blind chance. To put such a notion in perspective, let’s take an example from the Italian lottery, which is composed of 90 numbers. The odds against matching seven are stated to be over 622 million to one.
If these are the odds against getting seven numbers correct out of a possible 90, the odds against getting all 3.1 billion bits of DNA in the correct sequence are utterly impossible. The unavoidable conclusion is that the human genome is no accident.
I leave it to the reader to decide which is the saner thing — to believe in evolution or to believe in God.
