Understanding God

“When you have for the first time in front of you this 3.1 billion-letter instruction book that conveys all kinds of information and all kinds of mystery about humankind, you can’t survey that going through page after page without a sense of awe. I can’t help but look at those pages and have a vague sense that this is giving me a glimpse of God’s mind.”

--Francis Collins, the director of the US National Human Genome Research Institute and leader of the team that cracked the human genome (taken from here).

The Vatican finally accepted that the world is round and it spins around the sun only in 1992.

That makes sense with my idea of God.

Sadly, there are plenty of people who would have the Human Genome Project to be the Devil's work...
