What's your point? Are you maintaining your assertion that he was talking about the Bible?

Yes, I maintain that.

Yet even if Dr. Collins were referring to the genome, my point would be made. I do understand, you see, that Dr. Collins is a recovered atheist....

I thank you for dragging out the full context. Like Einstein, Dr. Collins seems to resonate with the sort of thing presented here:

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of the things which do appear.”
— The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Hebrews 11:3

And then, there’s this:

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.”
— The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans 1: 20–23
All italics in the above are mine.

Just the merest suggestion of scripture about which we might reflect this evening. Or not, as the case may be.

Thanks so much for writing js1138!

The very first wording in Genesis conveys ‘With wisdom God created’ ... BUr’aShYTh. Information preceded space and time and matter ... and the Mind of God preceded information on the order of the universe as God deunified to allow dimensions to express and the universe to manifest and then become aware of itself and thus of God.

I swear you make my head hurt. He was not talking about the Bible, your stating so, or thinking he might have said so of it in other circumstances, or thinking it would be so nice if he would have said it, or supposing in some mystical fashion he was talking about both at the same time without knowing it does not change the fact that he was talking about the human genome.
