Intelligence in Biochemistry

Shrinking down to the size of an atom as you rode Disneyland’s Adventure Thru Inner Space was both scary and exciting as you imagined how far into the microscopic world we could travel. This attraction opened on August 5, 1967 as part of the New Tomorrowland and was every serious science student’s favorite ride. It was the first attraction to utilize Disney’s Omnimover system, but it closed in 1985 moving on to more imaginative rides leaving this one in the archives of nostalgia.

Today we hear about quarks and leptons that are unimaginably smaller than even the atom’s proton. How far will we be able to peer into inner space, how small can we go and what do these microscopic particles teach us? Are we finding clues to chemical operations that exist due to chance random processes, as evolution would teach, or are these discoveries allowing us to glimpse into the creative mind of God?

Richard Dawkins, noted Biologist and Atheist, in his book “The Blind Watchmaker,” said: Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been *designed for a *purpose.

Francis Crick, Nobel prize winning scientist for the discovery of the structure of DNA has said: Even though things often give the appearance of being *designed, we must constantly keep in mind that what we see is not designed but rather evolved.

*Notice how evolutionists can’t help but use words like design and purpose. Could it be that things appear designed for a purpose because they really are?…
