#16 God Created at Least One Gene

I believe that God created life through what I call Nanocreation.  This is the idea that God created life by creating the genetic code made of DNA.  It is creation at the microscopic nanoscale at the level of cells.

The creation of new genes would be a rare and specific event at the turning points in the levels of complexity of life forms.

How could I convince other Christians that God created life through creating complex codes called genes?

I had been working on the theory for nearly 14 years.  I was thinking about this in the lead up to Christmas 2005.

An inner voice spoke to me and I felt something significant was about to occur.  I waited.  On Christmas morning I got up, and then the vision suddenly opened up before my mind’s eye, and I knew.  I felt such joy; it was the best Christmas present ever. I knew that every Christian believes that God directly created at least one gene.

Gospel of Luke 1:26-37 paraphrase:

The angel Gabriel is sent to Nazareth to a virgin called Mary pledged to be married to a man called Joseph.  The angel announces that she will conceive a son and name him Jesus.  How can this be? She asks.  The angel explains that although she is a virgin, the Holy Spirit will come upon her and the power of the Most High will overshadow her.  And so the holy one she will conceive will be called the Son of God.  The angel says, “Nothing is impossible with God.”  Mary replies “I am the handmaiden of the Lord; may it be unto me as you have said.”

And so Jesus was conceived in the womb of the Virgin Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Joseph played the role of father, but he was not the biological father of Jesus.

This is what we say in our Creed:  “by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.”

This means that Jesus’ DNA came from Mary his mother.
