Life's DNA is exceedingly complex. King David put our organization this way:
Psalms 139:14-16 "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."
When a young mechanic learns how to change a car's spark plugs or change the oil he has gained some understanding of the engine, but he does not possess the ability to replicate such an automobile from scratch himself.
Is any simple automobile the result of random chance? Of course not. Yet today, geneticists have learned how to manipulate a few things within DNA. Aren't we like high schoolers, peering into the complexities of life and barely able to understand what it is we see? We are "fearfully and wonderfully made."
Evolution proposes that "God was not needed." As such it creates a "mental hiding place" where the same person who would admit that a car could not happen by chance will turn right around and claim that organic life happened by chance.
Taking something simple - compare a big oil refinery with the complex human digestive system. The refinery must be retooled if the incoming oil has any change in its composition. Yet your digestive system can handle a slice of pepperoni pizza, a handful of jelly beans, with a glass of soda - breaking down each organic substance down to the molecular level!! Each protein, mineral, fat, and sugar, gets individually processed. And the human digestive system is 100% biodegradable, portable, and was self-assembled. An oil refinery is simple in comparison. Did the oil refinery happen by chance? Does it improve by itself over time? Is it made of biodegradable parts? Do we have to concentrate to digest food? No, it happens while we then turn our attention to read, or talk, or drive a car (...that also did not fall together by time and chance); a car that runs on fuel from a big oil refinery.
If DNA is simple, then why does it take some of our most advanced equipment in order to even study it in the first place? Evolution is a "mental hiding place" to deny God's proper place in our lives. He is our Maker and we each have the choice of making Him our Lord.
