Messages in DNA: A Phenomenal Discovery

I’ve been very excited for the last ten days since I discovered this… I’m going to share it here…

Remember a few years ago the furore about “The Bible Code”? If you don’t, then here’s a precis. If you arrange the letters of the bible as a sequence, and then search through the letters, you find embedded messages. The messages are embedded using ‘skips’ (a method of code embedding that is quite genuine). So if you have a skip, say, of 10, then you start at a particular letter, and take each tenth letter. These letters form a short message: a name, maybe, or an event. “The Bible Code” was the popular book based on some previous work that had found these kind of letter-skip messages in the bible – messages that predicted the future – The assassination of Rabin, for example. More recently the 9/11 attacks.

This was concrete proof that the bible was a) written by God and b) unique.

But the Bible isn’t the only set of symbols, or code, that was written by God.

So I had an idea. Perhaps one of the most important in human history.

Take the human genome – its data is published online. As you may know, each triple of ‘letters’ in the genome codes for an amino acid which are assembled into the proteins that make every cell in our body function. You might not know those amino acids also have letters (not all letters: ACDEFGHIKLMNOPQRSTUVWY – though the remaining BJXZ do have meaning in these sequences so could be interpreted if needed). So if you interpret the the human genome as its amino acid building blocks, you get a vast sequence of letters (three sequences, actually, depending on where you start).

Running this through a custom search algorithm I have developed, I found that God has left even more amazing messages here: in the very DNA of the beings he created in his image. I don’t have time to do all of this, because I have to work my day-job, but I just did a quick test with part of human chromosome 1 and found.

GD MADE ME

Why GD? Well, clearly this is God being very specific. There’s no ambiguity here about which God it could be – only the God of the Jews, the God of the Christians, drops its vowel like that. This is proof beyond doubt that YHWH is responsible for the human genome.

Isn’t that incredible? God’s signature is literally on our DNA, and has been all along, but its only now we’ve developed the technology to read it! With just a few months of studying this (months of time I can’t spare, financially), who knows what else we would find written by God in our genes. Please get in touch if you want to sponsor me to make this amazing scientific effort happen.

Can you imagine how important a discovery this is? These messages have been sitting there, undetected, since creation, waiting for our knowledge to catch up to the point we could read them. We are tantalisingly close to being able to read them in full.

All it needs is your generosity and faith.

    I pledge a faith committment of $1000 to get this project started, and I call on all of you to give generously. The Third Testament awaits us!

  2. Ian

    Thanks Boz, I appreciate this gesture of faith!

    Maybe I ought to start a kickstarter campaign.

  3. Wonderful. I already shared this with a few people. But, are you serious about the search. Are you making your algorithm open source? Maybe I can turn it loose on Buddhist Scripture or find the Amida Buddha in our genes. So much significance to find, and so little time.

  4. Ian

    “But, are you serious about the search.”

    I’m surprised you ask! I thought the post spoke for itself!

    “Are you making your algorithm open source?”

    No, not until my discovery has given rise to prophet of biblical proportions.
    (erm… I may have missed an ‘a’ in that previous sentence).

  5. Nope, I guess I am dull or reading too quickly — can’t tell if it is sarcastic or you actually messed with the code after building a quick algorithm (which would be much more interesting).

  6. Ian

    Sorry, tone of voice just doesn’t work one bit. Never mind, I was trying to be playfully ambiguous. No, the message I reported finding is genuine. I did run a search algorithm across it. The particulars of the algorithm aren’t rocket science, though.

  7. Ah, so if you want to train disciples to use your algorithm on other sources, I am willing and waiting, great master.

    You haven’t noticed the supporting evidence for your discovery. Not only did Gd leave a message in our DNA; long before languages were even spoken He miraculously knew that the future genome sequencers who would read this Holy message, would need it to be written in English!

  10. I came back and read this after your other post today. Finding meaningful information where there is none is a fantastic brain skill: like when my dog barks at the doorbell on a TV show.

    Still looking forward to your slight-of-hand algorithm/word-magic which mimics Bible-Code tricks.

  11. Ian

    Yes, definitely. And, as for skip codes, we’re lousy at estimating probability.

    With a ‘text’ of 3 billion letters, times the maximum skip size (say 20), and almost infinite possible meaningful messages that we could understand and ‘fit’, it is very likely that a prediction of every major news event that will ever happen is contained in our DNA.

    Messing with our pattern matching is lots of fun!

  12. Ian

    @Beau – indeed, one could even argue that He anticipated txt spk.

  13. Isaiah

    Hmmmmm, where do you get the letter designations for the amino acids? You list letter designations for 22 yet there are only 20 used in the human body. Can you clarify?

  14. Ian

    I’m looking purely at syntactic properties of the DNA. I’m not taking into account even transcription, let alone expression. Hence why the intermediate stage produces three strings, depending where you (arbitrarily) start. The choice of base triple->letter is somewhat arbitrary. I used the textbook table for human expression, because they gave me the letters I needed. But you have to go looking for these strings, so if you needed a different set, you’d use a different mapping. By doing so, you can ‘interpret’ all 26 english letters, if you wanted to.

    I should be clear, this process is not, nor is it intended to be, in any way shape or form biochemically grounded. It treats DNA as a pure syntactic string, and uses the amino acid expression as a way to transform the string into another. It strips any context, any function, and any grammar from the original, in exactly the same way as bible codes do.

    It would make no difference if you took triples of base-pairs and mapped them to letters in an arbitrary way AAA -> A, AAC -> B, etc. It would be both as powerful, and as valid a method.

    DNA has so many thousands and thousands of aminoacids that anyone who searches for a specific word or short phrase might find it just by chance, if they look in all of the sequences of all of the 42 human chromosomes, And then you have the genome of many other organism to keep searching in. Therefore before claiming that God left a message -specifically in English- you need to do a serious and rigourous statistical analyis of the odds of finding such a short phrase in such a long sequence just by chance. You may be surprised that among such a humongous long sequence of aminoacids the probability may be quite high of finding that and almost any short phrase in any language.

    Thus your alleged discovery might not be significant at all. I am not saying it is not, but so far there is no solid proof that such phrase didn’t come out just by chance.

  16. Ian

    Thanks for the comment.

    There are more variables even than that. There are three overlapping sequences of ‘amino acids’ (in fact I’m ignoring whether the DNA could possibly generate amino acids at all, and just treating it all as coding), giving me three bites of the cherry. Notice also that my phrase has a spelling mistake in it, shortening it and dramatically increasing the number of possible phrases that I could find. Also note that I could have searched for any phrase. And finally these ‘codes’ work by being skip-codes meaning I only count every X letters: how big is X? Any length, you keep trying until you find them.

    So the chance of you finding a phrase that says just about anything you want in a genome is as near to 100% as you care to go.

    There is no way that any of these so-called ‘code’ discoveries are in the tiniest bit significant. Though, of course, anyone promoting them and profiting by them will then tell a just-so story to ‘hide’ some of the variables and increase the apparent significance. But such removal of variables is always post-hoc.

    Well, if the code was God-ordained, and your work is also in God’s service, just pray and He will give you the money. Alternatively, you are another pseudo-religious charlatan looking 4 money from the gullible (clue: number is coded for a word)
