We can fit all the information from a whole set of encyclopedias onto one thin CD ROM to place in our computers, and much more on a DVD. That’s a lot of information, but we are told that one gram of DNA can hold as much information as a trillion CDs. Whether “a trillion” is a precise number or well rounded, scientists have been inspired by the fantastic storage capacity of DNA. They are now trying to develop computers that use a molecular approach to overcome the limits of computer chips. If they eventually make a computer as small as a cell with a huge information storage capacity like DNA, and I scoff and claim, “You didn’t do that! It just came about by accident,” they will rightly consider me a fool. Yet many believe the people who claim that DNA itself was a lucky accident. The Bible says, “The fool hath said in his heart, ‘There is no God’” (Psalm:53:1).
