some atheists would try to use the idea that dna is similar to support their evolution ideas. which is why i often point out that quite a lot of things CAN be supporting both sides. at that point atheists just get mad at me and stop listing:(
now that being said even though it can be used to support both sides, a lot of the facts combined often tend to support the biblical creation.

yer like 99% of DNA is shared amongst all creatures on the planet. That is to say almost every creature has the same basic DNA... Only difference arises in those bacteria which live in the heat vents in volcanoes and such. Their DNA is slightly different and allows for them to survive there.

As to us having unique DNA. Most humans share like 99.9% DNA with each other, it's the other 0.1% which makes everyone have different eye colour, hair colour etc. Which is pretty interesting i think...

This points more towards all life coming from a certain set of DNA (like the theory of abiogenesis), and that through evolution all of this DNA was propagated into different life forms. The outliers such as the thermal bacteria probably arose from a different abiogenesis or something (i don't actually know).

The theory of evolution actually says nothing about abiogenesis or how all these creatures with the same DNA were created, just that the creatures will change over time along with their DNA...

Well you demonstrate exactly what ElfFriend said, DNA similarity can be used in both arguments. I've already give my side though in the description bar.

Well DNA is way too complex for spontaneous generation to have created it and spontaneous generationis the only possibility and was disproved by louis pasteur inn the 1800s.

wut, that has nothing to do with DNA. He proved that lifeforms cannot be formed from nothing (essentially). I believe the specifics were that of bacteria forming on meat and making it rot. It was believed that the rotting meat spawned bacteria which it was actually just through airborne transfer...

The theory he helped destroy was spontaneous generation (there were many before him but he was one of the last). As i said before the variation in DNA is because of natural selection - creatures reacting to the environment. The rest of the DNA is all the same, suggesting not that God just copied and pasted DNA into everything, but that we all came from the same source. Equating it Da Vinci is nice, but incorrect. A better comparison is if he made the same picture a billion times and only changed one hair or something on each picture... Same style, no, its all the same.

Lol I love how you use a Kelvin quote to start this off. Same man who said the x-ray was a hoax, the radio had no future, that airplanes were impossible, and that there was nothing new to be discovered in physics.

Would you rather me use Einstein's quote? Or Louis Pasteur's quote? All convey the same message.

Kelvin does not become a mockery because he scoffed at other scientific advancements. You're ignoring all that he contributed to science just because he disagreed with your little belief.

Just ****** stop using quotes from stupid people, and yes I include Einstein and lots of others in their personal beliefs, even me and any human being alike as stupid - Im a misantrope for a reason. Stay objective and refer to the work they did, words mean nothing without that.

This “If you study science deep enough and long enough, it will force you to believe in God.” is a personal conclusion which cannot be taken as objective result. So even if Einstein or any great man in science believed in a god, who gives a ****? Newton was a ****** creationists and believed in alchemy, do you want to take his word? Richard Dawkins is an agnostic atheist and yet he was a man of science, do you want to take his word as fact?

Make up your own mind and stay to the facts. Express you own conclusions and speculations as subjective. By that you walk a saver way unless someone like you comes across and shows his extremely bad reading comprehension.

So you're saying you're more scientifically literate than Kelvin? GTFO Medusa. First you insult Newton and now Kelvin. How many more great minds will you insult just because they disagree with your evidenceless world-view? Also I don't think you know the meaning of the word misanthrope based on your posts on morality and justice.

"Stay objective and refer to the work they did, words mean nothing without that."

Then you misunderstand why I used the quote. I used the quote because it expressed my view. If you want to play it this way then tell your atheist group to stop posting quotes from stupid people (it even has quotes from them in the description of the group).

This is just hypocrisy at its best. If you don't support quoting then you wouldn't be part of the atheist group which disagrees (seemingly) with your own philosophy. Just more proof atheism is madness and a religious belief I guess.

"Newton was a ****** creationists and believed in alchemy"

Now you seriously prove you grossly misunderstand science here. The scientists of the past who "believed" in alchemy did so because there were results. We only have chemistry because of experiments with alchemy.

Alchemy was proved false because of all the tests and experiments but "magic" was discovered in the end in the form of chemistry the true miracle. Alchemists searched for ways to prolong life and in a way, their quest was completed through chemistry which has produced medicine that has extended human life along with other benefits alchemists would dub magical.

I thought you understood that theories/hypothesis/models rise and fall and are replaced anew when better ones come along. Seems I was wrong there.

"By that you walk a saver way unless someone like you comes across and shows his extremely bad reading comprehension"

Talking about yourself here? Because the quote was included to complement the image for God's sake...

Ok, legit argument. The rest of your respond is irrelevant to me.

Medusa, so you're a "victim" too huh? Don't worry, Trusty Patches understands. I hate priests for those reasons too. It happened to me too. We're the same you and I. Outcasts.

Description

“If you study science deep enough and long enough, it will force you to believe in God.”

–Lord William Kelvin

DNA shows such incredible complexity and construct. The structure of DNA is the same in every living creature once again providing more than enough evidence that a god was behind creation.

DNA is made of four bases with repeating sequences. This is the same in every creature but each individual has unique DNA.

When an artist paints a picture, they normally do it in a style that is theirs. Leonardo Da Vinci had his own style that he repeated with all his paintings. From a quick glance at one of his paintings, one could instantly say Leonardo had created it based on the style alone. The style that was repeated throughout out of his paintings. Likewise God used the same design in DNA for all creatures but yet it is unique in every individual.
