The Ordering of Genes
One of the most important discoveries of molecular biology was that some
genes are more influential than others. The reason for this is that genes
are set out in a very complicated order. In the fundamental genetic hierarchy
there are genes charged with carrying out functions that are repeated:
making haemoglobin, hair growth, or the production of digestive enzymes
for instance. There are "ordering" genes placed over these worker molecules.
These make the worker molecules work, and also stop them from doing so.
For example, they stop the haemoglobin gene from functioning during childhood.
There is a series of "main controls" over both the workers and "middle
management." Their decisions affect dozens, even hundreds of sub-units.
These genes are so vital that it can be fatal if they are damaged during
the embryo stage.
That is a fact that requires careful consideration. Genes are molecules
made up of atoms. So, how did these molecules set up such an ordered organization
amongst themselves? How is it that a molecule can take the decision to
halt someone's growth and relay that decision to other genes, so that
they may receive, obey and implement it? Who set up that discipline? Furthermore,
trillions of genes have been flawlessly carrying out the same functions
for millions of years, with the same discipline, obedience, intelligence
To claim that such a system emerged by coincidence is utterly specious.
There is no doubt that it is God, the Lord, who programs the genes so
cleverly and perfectly.
