    Binary code was invented in 1679 or thereabouts. DNA was discovered in 1953. The two are strikingly similar.

    many people ----believe God created everything as God wants
    many religions-----make God in mans image. Per scripture written by people who claim the wording came from God.

    To me, what matters is that there is a God...It is moot to me whether God looks like a human male, or human female, or like anything else, or that God is invisible without form.

    I see God in all living things. Human beings don't have a monopoly on the expression of divine creation.

    It seems to me that the real question we ask is not whether there is a god, but what is our purpose if any beyond our existence in the here on earth. While deciding there must have been creator is a 1st step to believing there is another purpose, it still doesn't answer the question, nor does it suggest we can know it. Belief in a creator does not automatically give credence to the idea that some have discerned his/her/it's will, and/or that we should follow it. The contemporaneous presence of such a being is not self evident except through faith, which, like the religions themselves are human constructs to all but their believers.

    Thoughts worth considering.
