Science once again openly “playing God”….Pt 1

Watching the BBC program “Horizon:  Playing God” recently had me both transfixed and horrified at the depths to which scientists are prepared to go to get ahead of others in their field, & to be the ones to provide the next new world-changing concept.

Having a strong interest in science myself, I can honestly understand where scientists are coming from on one level, in constantly wanting to break new ground, & find new things, or improve on old ideas etc, but at some point there has to be some sanity within the discipline that recognises that some things truly aren’t meant to be tampered with, & while they may feel that need outweighs any possible detriment in the short term, one has to wonder what the long term repercussions will be.   Science now is already well into blurring the boundaries on all levels as we’re continually indoctrinated, by the multitude of natural history TV programs. into believing that we’ve “evolved” from the animal kingdom anyway, so we should be quite comfotrtable about mixing ourselves back into it again.

The complexity of creation …

The more I look at the complexity of creation the more in awe I am of our Creator God.   Evolutionists sadly refuse to contemplate Him as the ultimate Creator for many reasons, yet they are continually being faced by evidence which they refuse to accept points to even a limited view of Him – namely Intelligent Design.   However, even I in my limited knowledge and understanding can see SO many places evolution falls down in its vain attempts to overthrow God and the biggest area is DNA.   Known to be the building blocks of life scientists are only now discovering that even the “simplest” of organisms on the planet have extremely complex genetics and DNA.   Evolutionists never seem to stop and see the ultimate stupidity in holding to a view that says that time alone could create anything complex let alone the complexity of DNA required to even “start” life!!    How could even the simplest of organisms survive long enough to even somehow figure out it needs to replicate (which somewhere along the way demands intelligence of some form whether internally or externally)?   How could there ever have been a food chain of any form to keep populations in check if predators had to “evolve” and realise they had to eat certain organisms below them (what they maybe once were themselves supposedly) to survive?   If indeed it took “billions of years” for the simplest of organisms to evolve into something more complex, by that time (if they did indeed manage to figure out replication first – which requires DNA by the way), then they would have overrun the earth and probably destroyed it and themselves in the process.   While we tend to centre on mammalian evolution plants seem to get forgotten about – and given they too also have very specific DNA how could they “evolve” fast enough to protect themselves against being eaten by the lowest mammals (before they figured out they needed to eat themselves or lower species)?    Oh I know the diehards will respond that obviously not all died and those that didn’t  “evolved” further to  add those  improvements in to their DNA for the next generation, but that’s really grasping at straws IMHO.  There are more holes in their worldview than enough yet few truly take the time to investigate before just blithely holding to it because they don’t want to have anything to do with religion yet at the same time need an answer to that age-old question on “Why are we here?” or “How did life begin?”
