Does the bible talk about DNA? It most certainly does, if you know how to identify it. DNA is the blueprint of life which is found in the chromosomes, of which, humans have 46. With this knowledge in mind, consider the passage below.
Joh 2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
Joh 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
God in his infinite wisdom reveals the existence of DNA by associating the true temple which is the body of Jesus with the number 46. The phrase “Forty and six” is found exactly 3 times in the King James Bible, which points to another uniquely human attribute: Body, Soul, and Spirit.
And once again, in the book of Genesis God reveals the existence of DNA in the 46 words spoken to Eve by the serpent.
Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? Ye shall not surely die:
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Human DNA as we know it today came into existence with the eating of the forbidden fruit. The more I read the bible, the more amazed I am, it is an awesome book; all the mysteries of the world are revealed in it.
There are thousands of similar claims available on the internet, all with the Bible as basis.
Some of these claims say that the world ended 60 years ago (which it didn't), and I bet you will be able to find some claims that the world will end tomorrow.
People have been, and are juggling with numbers, tokens and signs...and are more often wrong than right.
It is really awesome that like reading the Bible and you should continue.
But don't put your hopes on vague claims and disputable statements. You are likely to become disillusioned and very disappointed.
The Bible is not a magic book with hidden answers to the mysteries of the universe.
Although highly entertaining, you are better off leaving speculation to those who have nothing better to do :)
AVZ, you advise not to put my hopes in vague claims, but you offer no counter argument to back your claims up. What is your argument, what are the vague claims?
I will use your DNA claim as an example to explain vague claims.
The linguistic argument
As a starter your claim that the 46 words spoken by the serpent refer to the number of chromosomes in the human body.
Well, here you already arrived at an uncertainty as we do not know what language was used at that time.
The earliest account of the creation story is written in Hebrew. And somewhere between creation and the earliest accounts of creation we had an event called "the tower of Babel".
Whether plausible or possible, we do not have sufficient information to state that the words mentioned in Genesis are in the actual language.
Hence the mathematical assumption fails by linguistic uncertainty.
Incorrect conclusion argument
Chromosomes and DNA are two different things. Similarly my hand and my fingers are different things.
A hand is still a hand, even though it only has 3 or 4 fingers.
If at all your claim would be proof of anything, than it would be proof for 46 chromosomes and not the existence of DNA.
The biological argument
Chromosomes are built up by DNA and not the other way around.
You need a lot of DNA to make 1 chromosome. You do not need 46 chromosomes to "prove" the existence of DNA...1 is enough.
Humans however have 46 paired chromosomes, dogs have 78, horses have 64 and frogs have 26
So the numbers 78, 64 and 26 would as much be magical numbers to explain DNA as your number 46.
The theological argument
We know of some numbers in the scriptures that carry a certain divine purpose. I am not sure if I should call them "holy" because in themselves the numbers are just what they are...numbers.
The "science" behind it (if you can call it science) is called numerology. In our specific case Biblical Numerology.
There is a whole list of these numbers, you can find them online. Unfortunately 46 is not one of them.
Now I am not saying that 46 therefore is not a "holy" number...I am saying that the notion to perceive this as a "holy" number is vague at least.
As you can see your claim can be approached from various different angles with various independent questions.
The answers to these questions are either non-existent or vague.
The claim you made (although not inherently dismissible) is vague by its presumptions.
