god = dna
    #4242563 - 06/01/05 01:46 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

god is dna. think about it. because of dna we have feelings, values, morals, love. dna makes us. dna makes our brain. dna therefore makes our entire universe. in a sense, dna really is god.

we have morals values and emotions because evolution selected for having them and now having them is coded into our dna.

then we could say that God was actually the Big Bang since it started everything which eventually led to us existing and having this DNA.

good point....

Also, they are looking into rNA as well since some believe that not all genetic info is stored in the DNA

i'll be devil's advocate.
you are the product of love. your parents; their parents; ever-branching networks of love that grow bigger and bigger the further back in time you go. millions of years of love. all the way back to the most primitve animal forms of love. so much that love really constitutes every fiber of our being, since evolution has created every aspect of us that's put into these environments we encounter. love is the operational force of dna. this is more true the closer to us humans you get in the evolutionary ladder.
it's human dna = love, not the big bang.

Certainly DNA is a/the higher force within us, and a lens or interface to the spirit. I doubt it is the ultimate God though. Certainly a God of biology though - the language and code that binds us and makes us and shapes us and creates us. Although biology has other Gods that inlcude the prerequisite of a suitable environment, DNA is perhaps the defining factor. Strange too how RNA->DNA tend to spring up at the earliest chance in an environment that offers a niche. Complexity seems to to increase by some sort of energy that guides its creation and overcoming of entropy....perhaps that force that makes it so is 'The God'....if there is a One

I wouldn't say DNA is God, but rather natural selection is the God law that created us as human.

In a sense, because each of us is a modern part of natural selection, we are all part of our creator, creating the future organisms of the earth by killing some and letting others live. It's an ancient situation to be in.

Eh, debatable. Personally, I believe DNA gives us the potential to feel these concepts, but DNA itself does not make everyone feel love. The environment is what activates love, at which point it uses the potential DNA gave it. Following this, it would seem incorrect to say that DNA creates these feelings, because if two people with the same genetic code were put in different environments, one might feel these while the other may not.

Quote:

dna makes us. dna makes our brain




Agreed.

Quote:

dna therefore makes our entire universe.




Again, I'd use the same argument as I did for love, that DNA gives us the potential to create our reality (so-called universe that we perceive), but the DNA itself will not be activated until the environment lets the potential DNA has given us create our reality and henceforth the universe.

I like the way you think though, and completely agree with the underlying current of your post. But is it really DNA that is God? There are, after all, both RNA and DNA as nucleic acids helping form life, so what if another nucleic acid came along in the future and replaced DNA? If so called xNA took DNA's place, would xNA became God and DNA simply become a helper?

That's why natural selection seems to be the real God here, DNA is just his hand in humans. Natural selection created DNA and gave us the potential to evolve into better suited, more stable organisms, and here we are.
