The Heavens Declare

“The heavens declare the glory of God and the skies proclaim His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). Our DNA contains instructions for building proteins out of sequences of amino acids. There are 500 or so known amino acids, but life uses only 23. The average protein in a cell is about 450 amino acids long so there are 23 to the 450th power or 10 to the 613th power different proteins our DNA might construct. Life uses about 10 million proteins. If we took those 10 possible proteins and split them into planet-proportioned groups of 10 million each, there would be 10 to the 606th power groups. Astronomers tell us there are 10 to the 23rd power habitable planets at a maximum in the universe, so you could spread those groups of proteins over the planets in 10 to the 583rd power universes without having a single duplication of a single protein on any two planets. Planet earth and the life on it are special, unique and not accidental. Church, our God is an awesome Creator. Glory be to His holy name!
