Nice Response The Borg, and I'm glad you will look into the things that I posted. Lets backtrack to verse 1 of Genesis. The Bible talks about the
Creation of the universe as well as what we call evolution in general.
If you look at Genesis Chapter 1, God Created(Bara) three times. In verse 1,21 and 27. God Created the universe in verse 1 and the Word formed the
universe out of what was Created in verse 1. So God Created the conditions for life to exist in verse 1 and this is why another act of Creation
wasn't needed until verse 21. Now, verse 20 and 21 says:
Genesis 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open
firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their
kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
So, from the Life that God brought forth from the waters, He then Created the various species that we see today. God inserted an operating system
within this simple life that instruced this life on how to evolve. See, there wasn't another act of Creation needed to bring forth life from the
waters in verse 20 because God Created the conditions for simple lifeforms to exist in verse 1 of Genesis.
When this was first shown to me, I said to myself that their has to be an interruption in the evolutionary record that shows this to be the case.
While I was searching the net I came across introns within what's called junk DNA. About 2 billion years ago eukaryotic cells diverged from bacteria
and the eukaryotic genomes are a complex mixture of useful genes and junk DNA. Within this Junk DNA are introns and the bacterial genome does not
contain introns. Then I ran across these articles:
Forget waiting for ET to call -- the most likely place to find an alien message is in our DNA, according to an expert in Australia.
Professor Paul Davies, from the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at Macquarie University in Sydney, believes a cosmic greeting card could have been
left in every human cell.
The coded message would only be discovered once the human race had the technology to read and understand it.
Writing in New Scientist magazine, Davies said the idea should be considered seriously.
The article goes on to say:
For more than 40 years astronomers have been sweeping the skies with radio telescopes hoping to catch a signal from an alien civilisation.
So far the search has been in vain. But Davies believes it is wrong to assume that extraterrestrials who may be hundreds of millions of years ahead of
us technologically will have chosen to communicate by radio.
Leaving artefacts for humans to find once they are sufficiently evolved -- like the obelisk in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey -- might be a more
attractive strategy, he said.
But ensuring the survival of such an artefact over possibly millions of years would be difficult.
A better solution would be to incorporate information into the human genome, allowing it to be copied and maintained over immense periods of time.
One way to do this might be to deliver alien viruses which could infect cells with message-laden DNA, said Davies.
Scientists have recently discovered large sequences of "junk" DNA that contain no genes and appears to be very stable.
"If ET has put a message into terrestrial organisms, this is surely where to look," said Davies.
The other article says:
"Junk DNA" is actually the "software" that allowed complex organisms to evolve, according to an Australian molecular biologist.
Professor John Mattick of Queensland University's Institute of Molecular Bioscience argues that scientists have been too focused on the
protein-production role of DNA and ignored its role in helping to put all the proteins together at the right time and place.
"The genetic program has to do two things," said Professor Mattick. "It has to specify the protein components, the bricks if you like, but it also
has to specify the patterns in which those things are put together."
Traditionally, scientists have written off non-protein-coding DNA as "junk". Professor Mattick sees it differently.
It goes on to say:
Scientists have been surprised at the amount of DNA in the human genome that does not code for proteins. Some of this non-coding DNA is present within
genes (introns), while other others lie between genes.
"The discovery of the mosaic structure of genes in higher organisms was the biggest surprise in the history of molecular biology. It was swept under
the carpet within a few months of being discovered because everybody "knew" that genes coded for proteins. It was rationalised as junk, as an
evolutionary hangover," said Professor Mattick.
"This stuff is in all the textbooks. But there was never any evidence for it, it was just a straight assumption."
He set up an alternative hypothesis "that introns are conveying information" and went in search of evidence that would either support it or knock it
"I could find nothing that could knock it down. Several things in the textbooks that could theoretically knock it down turned out to be incorrect
assumptions," he said.
You can read the whole article here:
So, God inserted an operating system within introns in what's called junk DNA. Thise operating system told the life that God brought forth from the
waters, how to evolve. Again their are no introns in the bacterial genome and they just appear when species begin to form. This matches the Bible
and I have no doubt that this is the case because this was shown to me before I knew about introns within junk DNA. When this was shown to me I knew
that something within the evolutionary record would show this to be true.
This leads to verse 26 and 27. See, these species evolved and then God Created again in verse 27 and then humans began to evolve. Adam was formed
from the dust of the ground. The gods had dominion over mankind but not Adam and the rest I explain in my earlier post. See, there were two
bloodlines, one between Adam and Eve and this is why Noah was perfect in his generations and there's one between Adam and the daughters of mankind.
The bloodline between Adam and Eve ended with Jesus and the serpent constantly tried to corrupt this bloodline and you can see this in the Old
Testament. The Nation of Israel were chosen to carry this bloodline.
THANK YOU, LORD JESUS!!!
