School lets out soon…so begins our Summer (schooling) at the Library 5 days a week…(give or take a few). We are at the library (learning regularly throughout the year (literally & otherwise)). However, when so-called “regular” aka “public” school finishes for the year…we’re there (at our local library) supporting various programs, etc.
Speaking of libraries…our “cells are living libraries.” Did You realize? “The information in a bacterial cell would fill a 1,000-page book.” (Have You read a 1,000 page book lately?!)…(Uh-huh!)
How do cells use information? Think of DNA as a collection of recipes, each one involving step-by-step processes, with each step carefully scripted in precise terms. But instead of the end result being a cake or a cookie, it might be a cabbage or a cow. In living cells, of course, the processes are fully automated, adding yet another layer of complexity and sophistication.
Genetic information is stored until it is needed, perhaps to replace worn out or diseased cells with healthy new ones or to pass on traits to offspring. […]Consider one of the smallest organisms, bacteria. German scientist Bernd-Olaf Küppers stated: “Carried over to the realm of human language, the molecular text describing the construction of a bacterial cell would be about the size of a thousand-page book.” For good reason, chemistry professor David Deamer wrote: “One is struck by the complexity of even the simplest form of life.” How does the genome of a human compare? “[It] would fill a library of several thousand volumes,” says Küppers. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)
To describe the writing in DNA as “molecular-genetic language” is more than “mere metaphor,” says Küppers. “Like human language,” he points out, “the molecular-genetic language also possesses a syntactic dimension.” Put simply, DNA has a “grammar,” or set of rules, that strictly regulates how its instructions are composed and carried out.

Intelligence is out there, eh?..(and grammar, too?)..of course, joanie.
People attribute information to intelligence, whether that information is in the form of symbols on clay or signals from space. They do not need to see the information being created to draw that conclusion. Yet, when the most sophisticated code known to man—the chemical code of life—was discovered, many shoved that logic aside, attributing DNA to mindless processes. Is that reasonable? Is it consistent? Is it scientific? A number of respected scientists say no.
Professor Yan-Der Hsuuw is the director of embryo research at Taiwan’s National Pingtung University of Science and Technology. He too once believed in evolution—until his research led him to conclude otherwise. Regarding cell division and specialization, he said: “The right cells must be produced in the right order and at the right places. First they assemble into tissues that will in turn assemble themselves into organs and limbs. What engineer can even dream of writing instructions for such a process? Yet the instructions for embryo development are superbly written in DNA. When I consider the beauty of it all, I’m convinced that life was designed by God.” (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)
There are theories…then there are NOT theories:
What qualifies a theory as a scientific theory? According to the Encyclopedia of Scientific Principles, Laws, and Theories, a scientific theory, such as Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity, must
Be reproducible by controlled experiments
Make accurate predictions
In that light, where does evolution stand? Its operation cannot be observed. It cannot be reproduced. And it cannot make accurate predictions. Can evolution even be considered a scientific hypothesis? The same encyclopedia defines a hypothesis as “a more tentative observation of facts [than a theory],” yet lends itself “to deductions that can be experimentally tested.” (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake!

As a person preferring poetry (and alliteration;)…(Is happy living, happy loving reading?)
“Your eyes even saw me as an embryo; all its parts were written in your book.” (Psalm (song) 139:16)
Of course, David was using poetic language (i.e. DNA). Nevertheless, in principle, he was right on the mark, which is typical of the Bible writers. None were even slightly influenced by the fanciful folklore or mythology of other ancient peoples. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015)
Makes me ask: Evolutionists…are they slightly influenced by the fanciful?!
(DNA–a space oddity?/God’s (superlatively intelligent) “poetic” living language!)
My kind of violinist (watch below IF You choose)… cool the way she combines dance…
making music is making movement…makin’ happy…snappy-lol;)
Sedentary is making sick and stagnant…life is on the move…happily progressive… to stay healthy mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually one cannot be stagnant/stuck behind (in the past)…

When we display these qualities, we create the conditions for having peaceful relationships with others and with God, which result in true happiness. ~excerpted What it Really Takes to be Happy
Factors That Contribute to Happiness:
Love moves others to love you in return.
Joy gives you the strength to cope with challenges.
Peace helps you to keep your relationships free of strife.
Patience enables you to stay happy even when you are under trial.
Kindness draws others to you.
Goodness on your part makes others respond when you need help.
Faith will assure you of God’s loving direction.
Mildness will bring you calmness of heart, mind, and body.
Self-control means that your mistakes (aka non-compassionate choices) will be fewer.
Please check out this “wise” counsel… it works! YAY!
Please Try it! & see for yourself:
“And you should continue to be made new in your dominant mental attitude, and should put on the new personality […] Therefore, now that you have put away deceit, each one of you speak truth with his neighbor, because we are members belonging to one another. […]do not let the sun set while you are still angry…[…] Let a rotten word not come out of your mouth, but only what is good for building up as the need may be, to impart what is beneficial to the hearers.“
“Put away from yourselves every kind of malicious bitterness, anger, wrath, screaming, and abusive speech, as well as everything injurious. But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another…[..]” (Ephesians 4:23-32)
Loving, kind, respectful communication creates happy atmosphere: contributing to your own happiness and to everybody around you. Personally, I don’t go there: profanity, vulgarity… my compassion compass brings me in the opposite direction: daily practice/exercise in displaying self-discipline: gentle, compassionate, non-violent living/thinking/speaking… self-control: especially when you’re dealing with angry people. Of course, I’m always working on being less sarcastic and not raising my voice when flustered aka upset.
