The double helix design is a universal standard of all that is alive. Is there any other design? What scientist is willing to insist that this is accidental or in accordance to random selection. Do the laws of subatomic particles, which must be exact, or you could have never figured out the DNA structure, also need to be taught to be random and accidental. You know the actual complexity is beyond human capability even with computers. Is DNA alive, with a magnetic aura like all living things or is it inert like a rock? My question, and interest is: is this where the spirit first contacts the material. My mystic experiences, which cannot be put in a bottle are mine. I feel no need to prove them scientifically and know it is impossible. But, at the utter source level which you are investigating there may be a tell. Interested?
