“At age 81, after decades of insisting belief is a mistake, Antony Flew has concluded that some sort of intelligence or first cause must have created the universe.
A super-intelligence is the only good explanation for the origin of life and the complexity of nature, Flew said in a telephone interview from England. “Biologists’ investigation of DNA ‘has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce [life], that intelligence must have been involved,’ Flew says in the new video, ‘Has Science Discovered God?
If it is truly the creation of an intelligent and all-powerful Designer, we would expect that it would be accurate, optimally coded and an efficient method of storage.
God has something to say about those who do not believe He exists: “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Romans ).And thanks to the precision of the process (which includes a ‘proof-reading’ function), the job is done with only about one incorrect nucleotide for every 10 nucleotide pairs which are copied at about 50 base pairs per second. Twenty different amino acids make up proteins in the human body, so the four bases, or letters, must somehow code for each one.The process would take a month (rather than the hour it actually does) but for the fact that there are many places on the eukaryotic chromosome where replication can begin. As replication nears completion, ‘bubbles’ of newly replicated DNA meet and fuse, finally forming two new molecules” (G. From an engineering standpoint, is DNA optimally coded?Many people around the world do not believe that God exists, classifying themselves as atheists.Others believe that God exists, but they haven’t proven His existence.
