so far have shown that the theory of evolution is in a serious
quandary at the molecular level. Evolutionists have shed no
light on the formation of amino acids at all. The formation
of proteins, on the other hand, is another mystery all its
Yet the problems are not even limited just to
amino acids and proteins: These are only the beginning. Beyond
them, the extremely complex structure of the cell leads evolutionists
to yet another impasse. The reason for this is that the cell
is not just a heap of amino-acid-structured proteins, but
rather the most complex system man has ever encountered.
While the theory of evolution was having such
trouble providing a coherent explanation for the existence
of the molecules that are the basis of the cell structure,
developments in the science of genetics and the discovery
of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) produced brand-new problems
for the theory. In 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick launched
a new age in biology with their work on the structure of DNA.
When Watson and Crick discovered the structure of DNA,
they revealed that life was much more complicated than
had previously been thought.
The molecule known as DNA, which is found in
the nucleus of each of the 100 trillion cells in our bodies,
contains the complete blueprint for the construction of the
human body. The information regarding all the characteristics
of a person, from physical appearance to the structure of
the inner organs, is recorded in DNA within the sequence of
four special bases that make up the giant molecule. These
bases are known as A, T, G, and C, according to the initial
letters of their names. All the structural differences among
people depend on variations in the sequences of these letters.
In addition to features such as height, and eye, hair and
skin colors, the DNA in a single cell also contains the design
of the 206 bones, the 600 muscles, the 100 billion nerve cells
(neurons), 1.000 trillion connections between the neurons
of the brain, 97,000 kilometers of veins, and the 100 trillion
cells of the human body. If we were to write down the information
coded in DNA, then we would have to compile a giant library
consisting of 900 volumes of 500 pages each. But the information
this enormous library would hold is encoded inside the DNA
molecules in the cell nucleus, which is far smaller than the
1/100th-of-a-millimeter-long cell itself.
