Creation Moment 7/13/2017 - Swiss Army Knife of the Genome

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
Psalm 139:14

"Consider the following statement by famed evolutionist Eugene Koonin and his colleague:
We cannot escape considerable skepticism. It seems that the two-pronged fundamental question: “why is the genetic code the way it is and how did it come to be?”, that was asked over 50 years ago, at the dawn of molecular biology, might remain pertinent even in another 50 years. Our consolation is that we cannot think of a more fundamental problem in biology.
Think of the complexity of the DNA molecule as an onion. Peeling away one layer of startling
function and ingenuity only reveals another, and another, and so on. Biochemical surprises from research discoveries now follow each other on an almost weekly basis. While secular researchers are lightheaded with all this new and fascinating genetic information, they should also be worried. The foundation of their worldview, Darwinism, is incapable of explaining any of this astonishing complexity by mere time and chance.

Scientists have been astounded that a human body is the result of “just” approximately 25,000 protein-coding genes. But no longer are these key DNA units viewed as simple features. Instead, genes are found in pieces that are both coding and non-coding. The different coding segments called exons can be stitched together in a variety of ways after they are copied into a messenger molecule called RNA in an intricately controlled process called alternative splicing. This allows for many different protein products to come from a single gene. One gene can produce a wide variety of proteins for different tissues and cell types according to demand. Because of this incredible versatility, some scientists have referred to genes as the Swiss army knives of the genome." ICR
