It was one of those "facts" atheists loved to use in attempting to prove that we were not created by God. Junk DNA. That is what it was called. When studying the DNA code in living cells, it seemed that only about 2% was useful. Therefore, some 98% of our DNA was "junk". That would certainly not be the way a supreme creator would design life. That was the argument some would make against our belief in a Creator God. What appeared to be a fact could be used to prove that we were not created by God. Or so some thought.

Oops. Now scientists are finding that over 80% of our DNA is not junk at all, but is biochemically active. And as scientists continue to study and explore this complex creation known as life. I expect they may eventually find out that 100% of our DNA is functional. Of course, I knew all of this already. Do not misunderstand. I am not a scientist by any means. I am writing about this subject because I can read news summaries. But I am a believer in God. I believe that we were created by God but my understanding of him will always be limited. I am the creation, not the creator.

So of course I believe that God knew what he was doing when he made you and me. The "facts" used to disprove the existence of God have now been shown not to be facts at all. Instead, they were opinions based on limited knowledge. And as time passes and we discover more facts, we realize that what was previously thought to be true was often wrong. That is why I appreciate the many scientists who are believers in God. They will admit that we humans do not know, or understand, much about this world we inhabit. In fact, they will make strong arguments that what we discover continues to prove that God exists.

God does not have to prove to me that he exists. He does. I can believe it, or I cannot believe it. So can you. Just do not be fooled by people who claim to have proof that he does not.
