    Hello. I have been a reader here for a short while and finally had to bite the bullet and register so I could comment.

    This is *unbelievable* stuff.

    Over the last few weeks I’ve watched a slew of the Berlinksi, Johnson, and Discovery Center videos. I’m just dumfounded. (Berlinski NAILS what I have observed myself when he discusses the smug, self-important scientist authority figure who looks down his nose at the rest of the world.)

    The description and animations of how DNA and proteins work are truly eye-opening and amazing.

    Am I just engaging in confirmation bias (I am a christain theist), or is it ridiculously self-evident that this biological information is carefully structured?!

    Cheers! Gotta run. Programming of Life 2: Earth is on.

    First of all a disclaimer — I am not the Don Johnson of this article, just an interested layman having the same name.
    However, I have had a long career in systems/software development as well.

    I share your interest and fascination with the video animations of life at the cellular level, and I also have had questions regarding the validity of the animations.

    I invite you to read an article I wrote awhile back where I had some of those questions answered by actual researchers in the field.

    I’d be interested in your reaction to my article.

    I wish you well in your journey.
