Yeah, put enough chimps in a room with typewriters, etc., etc...

These "chimps"?

Molecular Visualizations of DNA

Wait until they decode the third language....

"Hi guys! It's Me, GOD. How will you explain this message in evolutionary terms? You know I love you, but sometimes you really are a bunch of self absorbed idiots. I'll still be here when you wake up to Reality. Love, God"

(BTW, the above message would translate into the native language of the DNA researcher, no matter who did the analysis. Would that not throw them for a loop!)

Maybe I should Copyright this as a storyline for a Science Fiction short story?

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.

5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”

13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”

Hi guys! It's Me, GOD.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. So far we're only scratching the surface of understanding what goes on in those mysterious things called life and consciousness.

Great comments. I think it is amazing that St. Augustine had similar observations over 1600 years ago:

For just as that man who knows how to possess a tree, and give thanks
to thee for the use of it—although he may not know how many feet high
it is or how wide it spreads—is better than the man who can measure it
and count all its branches, but neither owns it nor knows or loves its
Creator: just so is a faithful man who possesses the world’s wealth as
though he had nothing, and possesses all things through his union
through thee, whom all things serve, even though he does not know the
circlings of the Great Bear. Just so it is foolish to doubt that this
faithful man may truly be better than the one who can measure the
heavens and number the stars and weigh the elements, but who is
forgetful of thee “who hast set in order all things in number, weight,
and measure.” [132]

From his Confessions, Book 5, Chapter 4.
