What in the world is a DNA ?

written by LazyWriter...


People think that there is no way that the complexity that is organic DNA could have just happened, without some intelligent being looking right past the intelligent being in front of them.

Now as an agnostic I must concede that the intelligent force driving the mutations and adaptations that make up our evolutionary history could very well be the work of some super being. Be it ongoing to this day or a sort of software like map preprogrammed years ago to simply "adapt".

Now let's get down to getting some details on DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is a nucleic acid molecule that contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms.

The main role of DNA is the long-term storage of information and it is often compared to a set of blueprints, since DNA contains the instructions needed to construct other components of cells, such as proteins and RNA molecules.

The DNA segments that carry this genetic information are called genes, but other DNA sequences have structural purposes, or are involved in regulating the use of this genetic information.

Chemically, DNA is a long polymer of simple units called nucleotides, with a backbone made of sugars and phosphate atoms joined by ester bonds. Attached to each sugar is one of four types of molecules called bases.

It is the sequence of these four bases along the backbone that encodes information. This information is read using the genetic code, which specifies the sequence of the amino acids within proteins.

The code is read by copying stretches of DNA into the related nucleic acid RNA, in a process called transcription. Most of these RNA molecules are used to synthesize proteins, but others are used directly in structures such as ribosomes and spliceosomes.

As a closing could also be the driving force behind the evolutionary changes we see throughout history. Either way there are far too many possibilities out there and our scientific knowledge too much still in its infancy to say for sure

So, keeping an open mind is what drives the scientific process forward
