Each of us have 46 long portions of DNA (called chromosomes) within our cells which we inherited from our parents. The coded information on this DNA contains unique instructions which determine exactly what each of us looks like, much of our personality, and how every cell within our body will function throughout our life. Copies of this same information are written within the coiled DNA molecules contained within each of the 100 trillion cells within our bodies.

If the DNA in one of our cells could be uncoiled, connected, and stretched out, it would be about seven feet long. It would also be so thin that details could not even be seen under an electron microscope. If all of the densely packed and coded information from one cell were written in book form, it would fill a library with approximately 4,000 books. Yet the DNA code from every person who has ever lived, if placed in a single pile, would weigh less than an aspirin tablet! Our knowledge of the marvel of the DNA molecule is just one of many reasons that we can confidently know that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Is it reasonable to believe that this complex information transferal system and all of the useful information coded into it could have developed as a result of chance mutations?
