Very good article Item7. Since I have been doing some reading on different subjects of dna I have found that many, MANY, of the scientists who are head of projects and research of dna believe in God. DNA is such a micro example of science. Makes me contemplate how an Atheist believes they can disprove every belief in God by a said believer, yet if they read research by a scientist without knowing anything about their belief in God, they will much easier accpet it as truth. How omnipotent is belief in God? How much does it affect every aspect of our thought processing in any subject and mirror our faith? There is alot to wonder.
Here is a little information on one of worlds leading geneticist, whom is quite fascinating to me. Francis Collins was appointed lead of the human genome project back when Bill Clinton was president and now he is director of the National Institutes of Health for Barack Obamas administration, and a strong christian.
"On July 8, 2009 President Barack Obama nominated Francis Collins to the position of Director of the National Institutes of Health. The US Senate unanimously confirmed him for this post, announced by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on August 7, 2009.
According to Science, Collins "is known as a skilled administrator and excellent communicator" and President Obama's nomination of him to lead the NIH "did not come as a big surprise". However, a discussion about whether his very public religious views would influence his leadership of the NIH played out on blogs. His appointment was welcomed by the CEO of the AAAS and by Bernadine Healy.
On October 1, 2009, Collins appeared for the second time on The Colbert Report, discussing his leadership at the NIH and other topics such as personalized medicine and stem cell research"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Collins_(geneticist)
"I have found there is a wonderful harmony in the complementary truths of science and faith. The God of the Bible is also the God of the genome. God can be found in the cathedral or in the laboratory. By investigating God's majestic and awesome creation, science can actually be a means of worship."http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/04/03/collins.commentary/index.html
