Re: Macro vs Micro
Schraf,
What is that?
Looks like cheese to me. Is it really slime mould?
You ever play the game Rogue?

a brief aside on slime mould in the game Rogue
Rogue was an old ascii unix adventure game. Slime mould was the default food type and I think there were also killer slime moulds in the dungeon, it's sort of an old 'inside' joke. not important.

Dna is the most complex language in the known universe!
DNA can be a very long double helix molecule. How do you see that molecule being a language?
Do you know what DNA does? How cells use it? Doesn't seem like a language to me at all but rather a template mechanism for assembling proteins.

Your faith is not being questioned here, nor do I think Percy was attempting to humiliate you. You have relied on some web sites that offer inaccurate information.
Biology is a very diverse study, much of it full of beauty and wonder as well as the hard math of experiment and data. To learn about the complex activities of a single cell is a thing of incredible beauty and wonder.
If you don't feel comfortable with evolution you can set it aside and enjoy other aspects of biology, ecology, and the environment of the planet.
Science is a process that involves correction as more data becomes available and more hypothesises are tested. There are all kinds of errors yet to be discovered and rectified.
I do hope you find some sources of good biology that you can enjoy and that deepen your obvious enthusiasm for learning and understanding.

Re: Great example
Can any of you provide references showing an increase in genetic information durring cell division or mutations?
You'd have to define "genetic information". I don't think geneticist use that term.
Are you asking about things like fusing of chromosomes? Or extra chromosomes like XXY or such?

Re: Great example
Okay, total brain lapse on my part. I'll plead fatigue and let it go at that as I can't actually recall what passed through my mind at that moment. I can almost recall it but it keeps slipping away from me. I'm off to bed. Hopefully by the weekind I'll be more coherent.
