Whether it be archeological or biological finding, when the results of our scientific research corroborates scriptural teaching, God is praised. For instance, the recent discovery of artifacts that prove King David and the City of David existed as biblically documented.
Also, the recent "almost" discovery of the "God particle" and now the results of the colossal encode DNA study that took decades, was international in scope, cost many millions of dollars and proves beyond a reasonable doubt that life cannot "evolve" from non-life.
Life can only come from life. The first human life, the first living system of any kind, could only come by special creation from a living sovereign planner, designer, builder.
Ewan Birney, project scientist and participant in the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, commented, "It's worth reminding ourselves that we are very, very complex machines, and it shouldn't be so surprising that the instruction manual is really pretty fearsomely complicated."
Dr. Birney's words should remind us of some other words from the actual manual written by the designer Himself — "I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows right well (Psalm 139:14)."
Reminds me of a quick story. A young, arrogant and overconfident angel approached God with the request that, if allowed, he could build a man better than God did with Adam, and would like to prove it.
God, with His subtle and hilarious sense of humor, said, "Sure, go ahead, and you can even use Adam as your prototype. But one thing — use your own dirt."
Biochemists and other scientists have tried for decades to duplicate the creation of life, but the simplest of God's self-replicating systems are infinitely more complex than the most elaborate machine ever designed by man.
