    DNA can show more about the past than most can even imagine.

    DNA shows a direct connection between apes, chimps and humans. Same as birds and dinosaurs.
    So just out of curiousity for the god believers, what would a gods DNA show?

    God has no DNA, only a physical body has DNA

    I think what @We Never Know meant was what a god-created DNA would show and how it would be different from evolved DNA.

    Wouldn't the conceit be that there was no difference, since "evolved" DNA was all created by God anyway?

    Interesting point but would DNA created by a god show the close relationship between human and chimpanzees.

    what if?

    God’s dna is in all living things

    except people get the distinct privilege of choice, so may choose NOT to accept it

    what if?

    If you could get the DNA of a god it would have some kind of strategy for immortality, invincibility. It would be like having Wolverine's DNA.

    That would be an admission that creationism is worthless as a hypothesis since it makes no different prediction to the ToE.

    Personally i believe all DNA in physical beings was created by God. The changes in DNA is the plan God made.

    If man was created from the dirt, does dirt have DNA?

    I do not know the answer to that. But i do believe God is behind everything that is coming to life.
    I do believe God is behind evolution that man think proves Gods non existance

    Are the changes random, but the mechanisms of evolution made man inevitable? I think so. But who knows for sure?

    I don't take that story literally. It's an allegory. We came from the earth.

    Is there anything in nature, life or the universe that isn't random?
