"All American Veterans"

By Francis Scott Key

O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand, Between their lov'd homes and the war's desolation; Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause is just, And this be our motto: "In God is our trust" And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Created by God, Not by chance.

Deoxyribonucleic acid

While a substantial number of scientists identify themselves as “theistic evolutionist,” most evolutionary theorist denies the existence of God and claim our existence is the result of chance, without purpose or meaning. However, consider the complex design of the genetic blueprint called Deoxyribonucleic acid , in every cell of the human body.

Consider the purpose of DNA. It stores information and directs development and life of each cell. The DNA found in one cell contains “more information than all 30 volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica. ” That information is placed in what scientist call a chemical alphabet. The chemical letters come together in various sequences, and these sequences contain all the directions needed to guide the cells functions.

DNA is not just a pattern randomly formed by natural forces, but it is encoded information. Suppose you walk along a beach saw ripples in the sand; you could conclude that pattern was formed by ocean waves. However, if you saw,” John loves Mary” inscribed in the sand; you would not assume the random action of ocean waves had done this. Written messages are produced by intelligence, not by chance. In the same way, the chemical alphabet that spells out information for a cell has an intelligent source.

What is the mathematical probability of a strand of DNA assembling itself with no designer? Even if you optimized conditions, it wouldn’t work. If you took all the carbon in the universe and put it on the face of the earth, allowed it to chemically react at the most rapid rate possible, and left it for a billion years, the odds of creating one functional protein molecule would be one chance in 10 followed by 60 zeroes.

(10, 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000)

This scenario is about as likely as a tornado whirling through a junkyard and accidentally assembling a fully functional Boeing 747.”

God is the intelligent designer of the whole universe and life. The bible says, “What may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead”.

(Romans 1:19, 20 NKJV).
