Excerpt from dawah leaflet shown in video:
The Miracle of DNA
DNA is found in a small part of each cell, its diameter is a billion times smaller than a millimetre. It contains the construction plan of the human body, with information regarding all the characteristics of a person from physical appearance to details about the inner organs. The information is in a code of 3.5 billion letters. The letters are grouped into 200,000 genes, which code for proteins in the body, which could be in eye, the brain, heart, etc. The correct order of letters determines the structure of the human down to the slighest detail, if the order was wrong the genes would be useless. You could be born with your ear on your back, or your hands on your chest!! How did these letters queue up to form a perfect sequence??
When people unfortunately, gamble, they may bet that the chance of a horse or football team winning is 10 to 1 or 5 to 1 etc. Compare this with the chance of just 1 average sized protein, being created from DNA: this has been calculated as 1 followed by 600 zeros to 1!!! And this is just one protein, remember DNA codes for around 200,000 proteins!!! One scientist famously said that this is as likely as a monkey typing out the history of mankind on a typewriter without making any mistakes in it!!!
