Greetings from North Brookfield Massachusetts!
I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy and have my MS degree in Information Systems Engineering and Mangement from Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. As a computer programmer, if I see a computer program, I know that it was created by someone. Computer programs are not random strings of binary data. So when I see DNA, which is also binary data, I see a genetic program that I believe was created by someone and are not just random bits of information.
My son, who has embraced atheism, informs me that because I want there to be intelligence design I allow my beliefs to color my perception of what DNA is. That may be true, but I have begun a journey of discovery that will help illuminate this subject.
I take this passage to heart: “always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.”
