Romans 11:33
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!”

Have you ever heard the palindrome “Madam, I’m Adam”? With a palindrome, the letters are exactly the same whether you read the sentence from left to right or from right to left.

Chemical structure of DNABut did you know your genetic code is a different kind of palindrome that conveys one series of messages when it is read from front to back and a different series of messages when it is read from back to front? Other meaningful information can even be found in overlapping portions of the genome! Think about your genetic code as if it were a novel. It would tell one story when read from front to back, an additional story from back to front, and many other stories as you read overlapping messages of the code!

Evolutionists find this very troubling. After all, their whole theory depends on random mutations resulting in improvements. But as scientists at the FMS Foundation point out, this multi-directional coding makes it impossible for a random “typo” to benefit one code without disrupting the others. This fundamental problem, they said, has been overlooked until now. “The bottom line,” they conclude, “is that overlapping codes cannot arise by any natural process – they must be very carefully designed.”

Yes, evolutionists must come to grips with the fact that the genetic code was designed. Chance mutations would only destroy the code. While evolution can’t even begin to account for the genetic code found within every cell of your body, it was an easy task for our Creator!

Prayer: Oh Lord, thank You for revealing to us the incredible complexity of the genetic code. I pray that You will use this information to utterly destroy the foolishness of evolution. Amen.
