An Illustrative Parallel between the Bible & DNA

// August 16th, 2013 // No Comments » // Blog

The cell’s entire play has one script — DNA. The wisdom behind the construction of biological systems is profound. The cell treats DNA like the Bible — with great reverence. Most proteins are synthesized off of an mRNA copy of the DNA rather than directly from the DNA itself, and (like the Bible’s central role in determining the life of a follower of Christ) the cell refers studiously to the DNA for direction of literally every cellular process. There’s a gene that controls literally everything, just like scripture is sufficienct for all of life and godliness for the Christian. Just a thought.

Strange find: Physiologic Necrosis
