Allie's 7th Grade Science Project: a 3-D DNA Model
Psalm 139:13-14 NIV
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
Genetics research has made a landmark discovery poised to springboard years of research in the fields of DNA study, disease control and the pharmaceutical industry just to name a few. What have scientists discovered? That no part of our body should be considered "junk".
Here is an excerpt from the article I read tonight on nbc.com:
"Stretches of DNA that we call genes are only a very small piece of what makes the body work. Much more important is the stuff in between the genes - stuff once dismissed as 'junk DNA.' It turns out that junk DNA is what is in control.
So, although the material between genes had been disregarded by researchers for years as mere junk, science has finally figured out there is no "junk" in our core design. In fact, it's the unassuming "stuff" that has been in control of our genetics all along.
At our most basic level, our DNA strands, every minuscule part serves an important role in our existence.
God doesn't make "junk". Not on the small scale and certainly not on the large scale.
Lest I ever forget the worth of my existence here on Earth, let me continue to remember, I am a child of God: fearfully and wonderfully made!
Lord, thank you for your attention to all details of my life from those I can see to those I can't.
