Life and Its Origin
The incredible complexity of all life is highlighted by examining the components of a "simple" cell. The computer-controlled protein (including enzymes) manufacturing process illustrates that DNA, RNA, and over 150 proteins must be present and fully functional for life to exist. The natural scenarios (proteins first, DNA/proteins first, and RNA first) are analyzed and shown to be totally inadequate, even from the natural sciences. The information systems of life illustrate with certainty that life had an intelligent source. The Biblical basis for life's origin demonstrates agreement with known science. We are fearfully and wonderfully made!
