Two Genetic Languages in DNA Challenge Evolution

two levels of information in dna duon challenges evolutionCan you write a sentence that has one meaning when you read it left-to-right, and a totally different meaning when read right-to-left? It would be almost impossible. Yet our genetic code is very much like this.

The genetic language is made up of 4 ‘letters’ (A, G, C, T). These letters arrange in groups of 3 to form a maximum of 64 ‘words’ (called codons). Scientists always thought these ‘words’ just explain what proteins the body should make. But it turns out there are two different meanings in each word. Not only does the word dictate protein formation, but there is another layer of information telling the cell how genes are to be controlled.

Now evolutionists say that animals evolve by random mistakes added to the DNA called mutations (this is the simplest way to put it). But the dual-information nature of DNA challenges this. The following sentence can be read forwards and backwards: “Was it a car or a cat I saw?” Now let’s add a mutation: “Was it a car or a hat I saw?” The sentence still makes sense read forwards, but does not make sense read backwards. We have this very problem with evolutionary theory – random mutation have to make sense in both levels of genetic information. And with genetics, we are dealing with sentences far more complex than this.

It’s discoveries like this that set fire to the theory of evolution. To believe that a genetic code with two in-built levels of information could randomly come from chemicals is clutching at straws. But to say that billions of random mutations (needed for evolution) can make sense in both the languages is delusional.

There’s no way that billions of mistakes can occur in billions of genetic ‘words’ over millions of years – and not harm either information level in those words. Information always has an intelligent source. Everything we know about the world tells us that. So, life with it’s incredible DNA code requires an intelligent creator.
