The Atheist-Evolutionist Fallacy
DNA is a prime example of what atheist intellectuals fail to understand as “Intelligent Design.” It’s not because of intelligence, but sheer pride. Even if we use earth’s mathematical age of 4.54 billion and assume mutation is the primary source of diversity that gives birth to molecular structures (influenced by selection, migration, drift, mating, etc.), nothing comes from nothing, Parmenides.

Intelligent structure of DNA
- Human DNA is unique. It can store 500,000 CDs worth of information. It’s designed to allow living organisms to respond to their environment in various ways.
- DNA stores its information in “modules” that can be rearranged in many different ways.
- A single stretch of DNA contains different meanings (unique language), depending on how the modules are put together.
- DNA has an incredibly powerful design feature that allows it to store its information with efficiency. For example, with alternative splicing, there is a single gene in fruit flies that can tell the cells to make 38,016 different proteins.
Intentional & Intelligent Design (ID) behind DNA
The way DNA accommodates copying errors (incorrect amino acid), the one selected will often have similar characteristics and so will work as well or almost as well as the correct one. In other cases, an error will still result in the correct amino acid being selected (Creation). Point is, to make the assumption that DNA was an “eventual” product of evolution (by chance) is ludicrous.
Even Dawkins admits “any mutation in the genetic code … would have an instantly catastrophic effect, not just in one place but throughout the whole organism.” For Bill Gates, “DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.” Even with billions of years, DNA can only happen with “intentional design”.

Moral dilemma of atheists
It’s much easier to accept God’s signature in DNA. However, atheists-evolutionists would turn a blind eye because believing in an Almighty God is tantamount to accepting scriptures as empirical data, to which most have moral issues with (Romans 1:20–28). If anything, mutant fiction movies might as be probable in real-life.
In conclusion, we can use Friar William of Ockham’s medieval thoughts to explain the origins of life – “God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27). Ergo, Goddidit!
