{ Ode to DNA }


Rich in nucleotides and

beauteous in your twisting helix

Superior to a computer,

you can reproduce–


while holding micro-secrets

in your archways.

Recently unlocked

but still beyond total comprehension —

if only

Charles Darwin would have

postponed his book deadlines

until we discovered you.


I guess you can tell what we studied in history today.  We looked at the life of Charles Darwin. He was an incredible naturalist and a loving father and husband.  I think he was misguided in his assumptions, but he also didn’t have all the information we currently have. 

If he did, maybe he would have been a creationist.


Science is: observable, based on testable hypotheses; based on repeated observations that can be confirmed. It allows predictions to be made and tested.  Evolution is not science– according to our accepted definition of science. 

If you embrace evolution, I respectfully applaud you for your incredible faith.

This is my basis for faith:

“By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” — Hebrews 11:3
