“Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.” Bill Gates

I just was surfing the internet, reading some things about Bill Gates, and I came across this quote:

We have all had teachers who made a difference. I had a great chemistry teacher in high school who made his subject immensely interesting. Chemistry seemed enthralling compared to biology. In biology, we were dissecting frogs – just hacking them to pieces, actually – and our teacher didn’t explain why. My chemistry teacher sensationalized his subject a bit and promised that it would help us understand the world. When I was in my twenties, I read James D. Watson’s “Molecular Biology of the Gene” and decided my high school experience had misled me. The understanding of life is a great subject. Biological information is the most important information we can discover, because over the next several decades it will revolutionize medicine. Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created. It seems amazing to me now that one great teacher made chemistry endlessly fascinating while I found biology totally boring. (Gates, The Road Ahead, Penguin: London, Revised, 1996 p. 228)

It was interesting reading about Bill Gates’ teachers, but, then I saw the sentence in bold italics:

Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.

Wow. DNA, which is a teensy tinsy molecule inside each cell of each living thing, including humans, is more advanced than computer software?

Yes indeed.

But, we are told by mainstream science that life developed over millions of years by a process of time and chance. How could one molecule in each cell of a randomly generated life-form be so complex?

Perhaps mainstream science is wrong and life is not an end product of a process of time and chance. Perhaps it was designed by God, as I have believed for 13 years, and have been telling people in my website.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

(See My Testimony for how I came to believe in God.)

  1. its great to see i’m not alone physics turned me on to I.D. and a designer of the universe and the idea of designed imprints in our universe

    Your argument for the existence of god is that complicated things can only be created. If that’s true then whatever created life would have to be a great deal MORE complicated and the same logic would apply to it as well. What created god? After all complicated things don’t just happen right? What created whatever created god? Your logic has a very large loose end.
