Billionaire on Biological Information


Originally published in Creation 23, no 3 (June 2001): 22.

The most famous of all computer software gurus has recently acknowledged the brilliance of the programming in our bodies (without any hint of acknowledging the Programmer, so far).

Bill Gates, the world's richest man, said, 'The understanding of life is a great subject. Biological information is the most important information we can discover, because over the next several decades it will revolutionize medicine. Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.' (Emphasis added.)
