Shared Code

Scientists at Flinders University in Australia found that our DNA spreads up to a meter around us without even touching anything. We’re leaving breadcrumbs of genetic code everywhere we go!

A person can leave DNA on a surface without directly touching it, a Flinders University study has found, with the longer someone spends in a room the more likely they are to leave a trace of themselves behind.

The researchers placed DNA collection plates half a meter to five meters apart in offices that had been sanitized.

Without anyone directly touching the collection plates, DNA from multiple people was present after only one day, with the DNA profiles stronger the closer the plates were to an individual and the longer they stayed out. [Emphasis added.]

They published their findings in Forensic Science International Genetics

This discovery will be alarming to criminals, as they learn that police can follow their trail even without fingerprints. For the rest of us, it illustrates two things: (1) Forensics is an example of intelligent design in action, and (2) Our earth is indeed a privileged planet. It is loaded with complex specified information! What other world in our solar system can boast of such a distinction? Think of it: coded information is everywhere in our world: in clouds, on rock walls, in the soil, and even under the seafloor. Code not only inhabits life; it makes the world habitable, traveling on global transportation systems.

We share our personal CSI everywhere we go, resembling the character “Pig-Pen” in the old Peanuts cartoons, who walked with a cloud of dust around him — except that our dust is the most densely packed information in the known universe. Presumably our whole genome could be reconstructed from invisible particles that float off our skin and breath, as if we are sharing copies of our biography everywhere we go — a biography so information-rich that if printed in 130 volumes would require 95 years to read (University of Leicester).

More.


After presenting the other two stunners, ENST adds,

Shared code, another Cambrian giant, and DNA communication all fit within intelligent design expectations, but challenge traditional Darwinism. The more that design advocates can present better explanations for surprising discoveries like these, the faster some researchers may pay attention to the design revolution that is clearly underway.

Darwinism is, increasingly, a political and theological cause. It doesn’t need to make sense. It needs to make Darwinists feel okay about their world.

    Pathogens can be spread in this same way. Thanks for the additional validation that we need to wear masks during a pandemic.

    Great example of why masks are counterproductive as we need all these other low levels of DNA to form immunity. Masks just concentrate the pathogens to make them more likely to be harmful when blown out by our continued exhaling in very large concentrations.

    Jerry, if that were true, then hospitals and medical venues, where staff wear masks all day, would be the places where you are most likely to get the virus. The evidence shows just the opposite.

    When we breathe, cough or sneeze, our bodies are expelling toxins. It cannot be a good thing to breathe in these toxins that we are expelling.

    ET,
    “When we breathe, cough or sneeze, our bodies are expelling toxins. It cannot be a good thing to breathe in these toxins that we are expelling.”

    I’ve always been curious about this line of reasoning. Not sure if this includes you or not, but some people consider CO2 to be a “toxin”. But aren’t toxins things that, when put into us, do active damage? If that were the case, then CO2 should be doing even more damage to us inside our lung tissue before we expel it. Same for any other “toxin” we are supposedly trying to expel. It was deep inside us before we expelled it!

    We have to get rid of CO2, but it is a byproduct, not a true toxin, as I understand toxicity proper.
