Did you know that since 1960, millions of dollars have been spent searching for extra-terrestrial intelligence? In 2019 alone, the SETI Institute spent over $23 million.1 How do they search for intelligent life among the stars? Researchers point radio telescopes at the cosmos and listen for signals. If they find patterns that indicate encoded information in the radio signals, they will have found what they’re searching for. So far, they haven’t found any encoded information in cosmic radio sources.
It’s rather ironic, actually. Many have faith intelligent beings will one day be found. Yet many of the same people ignore the encoded information that points to God the creator. The DNA molecule is packed with information. For a human being, 20,000 genes are contained in a DNA molecule. What does DNA do? The National Human Genome Research Institute says, “DNA contains the instructions needed for an organism to develop, survive and reproduce. To carry out these functions, DNA sequences must be converted into messages that can be used to produce proteins, which are the complex molecules that do most of the work in our bodies.”2
People have been searching the heavens for years, believing intelligent life exists. But they’ve found nothing. Yet DNA has vast amounts of information, and many people never see it is evidence that God exists! I guess little green men are easier to believe in even though the evidence all points to the existence of God!
