The Written Word
The Gentiles do not have the Law; but whenever they do by instinct what the Law commands, they are their own law, even though they do not have the Law. Their conduct shows that what the Law commands is written in their hearts. Their consciences also show that this is true, since their thoughts sometimes accuse them and sometimes defend them. And so, according to the Good News I preach, this is how it will be on that Day when God through Jesus Christ will judge the secret thoughts of all.(Romans 2:14-16) Good News Translation
Apparently the law of God has been written in our hearts. This may be taken in a variety of ways but we (that’s me and the Holy spirit) believe that the Bible exists as non-coding DNA in every cell of our bodies.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.(John 1:14) ESV
We’re building the scriptural bases for a predictive testable hypothesis based on the scriptural statement that the Word became flesh, which is to say that God the Son, who was manifested in the beginning as the deep, is the material from which the universe was created.
If the act of creation on the first day was the generation of light by nucleosynthesis, analogous to what popular science (SciPop) calls the Big Bang, then there are several reasons why we should consider that the creative work of the first day went far beyond just constructing the periodic table of elements.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
From the beginning I predicted the outcome;(Isaiah 46:10) Good News Translation
long ago I foretold what would happen.
I said that my plans would never fail,
that I would do everything I intended to do.
This is a situation when we have to know the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end. Whatever happened on the first day has to set the stage for what happens on the second day.
The creative act of the second day was the creation of gravity, and we find an abundance of scripture and physical evidence which supports a core accretion model of planet formation. The evidence is compelling, and it helps us to understand what happened on the first day. However, we also have to know what happens later in history, particularly what happened during Noah’s flood, in order for us to understand the possible nuance regarding the physical evidence.
The physical evidence of core accretion comes from Geology and it includes the fossil record, we refer to it as the stratigraphic column. The stratigraphic column is evidence for whatever you choose to believe about it. There are two ways to understand it:
The Stratigraphic Column is evidence of…
- In the popular science paradigm (SciPop) it’s used as evidence for:
- the Geological Timescale, a contrivance of circular reasoning which is the backbone of Darwinian evolution.
- It’s divided into sections like Cambrian, Silurian, Ordovician, Devonian etc.
- In Matty’s Paradigm it’s evidence for:
- the creation of gravity and the core accretion model,
- Precambrian (Gravitian) fossils were deposited on the second day.
- Noah’s flood,
- Cambrian-Quaternary (Noachian) fossils were deposited in Noah’s flood.
- the creation of gravity and the core accretion model,
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
The fossils deposited on the second day (everything that science has assigned to the “Precambrian“) show us the extent to which life had developed by the end of the first day. This includes multicellular Eukaryotic brown algae, like Kelp, but much larger than any of its modern day relatives. This also means that we have complex biological systems such as the DNA-RNA replication cycle. This is significant. It gives us another predictive testable hypothesis.
- IF the Word of God not only refers to God the Son,
- BUT also refers to the written word which has been preserved as the Holy Bible,
- AND given that DNA is a system of information storage and retrieval,
- THEN the Word of God must have been encoded as DNA on the 1st day.
If the Holy Bible, the Word of God, was encoded as DNA on the first day of creation, and all life has been developed sequentially from this original form, then there may be a copy of the Bible in the non-coding DNA in every cell in our bodies. This adds another twist to the fact the Bible makes it clear that the truth about God has been made known to us all:
God’s anger is revealed from heaven against all the sin and evil of the people whose evil ways prevent the truth from being known. God punishes them, because what can be known about God is plain to them, for God himself made it plain. Ever since God created the world, his invisible qualities, both his eternal power and his divine nature, have been clearly seen; they are perceived in the things that God has made. So those people have no excuse at all!(Romans 1:18-20) Good news Translation
What better way to accomplish this than to have the Word of God encoded as DNA in all of our cells? Could not this be the origin of morality? Why do we have an innate sense of right and wrong? The Bible tells us that the moral law of God has been written on our hearts. People who have never been taught the law instinctively know what it is.
That would be a very God thing to do, wouldn’t it? God is pure and Holy, his judgment is righteous. We will all give an account to Him one day. What possible excuse could anyone give for ignoring the clear and obvious proof of his majesty?
God is also thorough. There are no gray areas. No one is going to escape His judgment on a technicality. Especially not if he can pull out any piece of DNA from any cell in our body and show us where it is written, thou shalt have no other gods before me. No one has an excuse for not believing in God. No one.
