As Dr. Venter states, information rules the living kingdom and there is no natural source that produces information. Mutations only cause destruction and death, they cannot add an eye, thumb, or other organ to an organism. Every computer scientists knows that to change or add functions to your computer, you need to add information instructions, or code, and that is exactly what DNA is. It is a digital code, so why is it so outrageous to infer there may be a designer behind it?
Scientists are now arguing that the universe was built with a purpose, and that features of living organisms show distinct signs of purpose. There is a good scientific argument that similar features among different organisms are the result of a common design rather than a common ancestry.
Is there purpose and design to the universe, or is it just random chance that everything exists? Physicists say that the universe created itself from nothing and that there is no purpose for life. Many scientists, in fact the majority [51%] of scientists Globally say they have no conflict between faith and science. There is no consensus in science for how life or the universe originated. They have no idea how or why everything began, but many seem to know for sure that there is no design involved?
Scientists have to consciously ignore the intuitive conclusion that they may be looking at something that has been designed.  Dr. Francis Crick who was the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA said this, "Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved. [Francis Crick, What Mad Pursuit (1990), 138.]
And Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft said this about DNA; 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. (Gates, The Road Ahead, Penguin: London, Revised, 1996 p. 228)

Below is Dr. Craig Venter, who is the first geneticist credited with creating synthetic life. He is an atheist professor who speaks very provocatively about the programming of living cells. The only source in nature capable of producing programming is a programmer, an intelligent mind.
