We live in a time when people increasingly ask if the God of the Bible is real? Why does He not give us one conclusive indication that He is alive? Well, maybe He did give us a clue that He is an intelligent Creative Being, but science does its best to disprove that specific sign.
God’s sign that He is alive and well lies in the DNA of living organisms. The origin of the genetic information (a recipe) is closely tied to the origin of life. Without the DNA recipe there can be no living organism. DNA is a code that needs intelligence to write it. So all science has to do is to disprove that the information on the DNA was created supernaturally. Then it has proven that the Creator God of the Bible does not exist. Until then, He seems to be the only cause of all of nature we see around us. That means He is real.
Let us take a concrete example, to explain it.
- The illustration of the Egyptian hieroglyphs obviously conveys a message. Can science prove that the message was not written by an intelligent person (supernatural creation), but the marks were made by a natural process (natural evolution)? Then there logically was not an intelligent hieroglyph writer.
- Let us say it is one of the subdivisions of modern science to prove the natural origin of such a hieroglyph. When we ask how much progress has been made, we are told, MUCH. There are many hypotheses on how the marks were made without the interference of an intelligent person. The stone could have lain in a river or pond and water carved the patterns on it. It could have slid from a rock, so the scratches were made. Some parts of the rock could have eroded and formed the specific ‘letters.’ Or whatever.
- We are assured that the researchers are making progress. The final solution is in sight. We live in the exciting times of modern science. The solution to the riddle of the hieroglyphs will soon be cracked (maybe not immediately, but in the next 5, 50 or 500 years).
This example reminds us of the donkey and the carrot. The donkey keeps running after the carrot, but it remains elusive. In the same way an easy solution to the problem of the hieroglyphs is promised. So people believe it, while time goes by and the answer remains a riddle. People die and they are not prepared to meet the supernatural intelligent God who wrote the recipe for the DNA code in living organisms. They don’t realise that history has proven that a written message always has an intelligent source. There are no exceptions to the rule.
This applies to God as the intelligent Creator of the DNA code. When it comes to plants and organisms, we are talking about millions of different ‘hieroglyph’ messages and they are long and complex.
People are eager to get rid of the Creator God and to disprove the Bible. Science is supposed to help with it. Unfortunately, there is no progress, only promises. Such is the cleverness of the devil who keeps people waiting for the final solution, the final death thrust of God by naturalism. It will never happen, since it can never happen that non intelligence can write a hieroglyph or a DNA code.
