Anything But God

I am working on an idea, and found an old Science Daily article that fits right in...

The article discusses a discovery that "proteins themselves acted to correct any imbalance imposed on them through artificial mutations and restored the chain to working order". That is, a sort of error correction, or self-governing regulation in proteins (a desirable feature, which requires significant design effort in human artifacts).

The article goes on to make some interesting statements:
"The scientists do not know how the cellular machinery guiding this process may have originated, but they emphatically said it does not buttress the case for intelligent design, a controversial notion that posits the existence of a creator responsible for complexity in nature."
We don't know what it is, but it can't be God!!!!111eleven!!

The article closes with a benediction for the faithful:
"The researchers are continuing their analysis, looking for parallel situations in other biological systems."
Just have faith! Trust in the holy men of science, they will give you all the answers to sooth your burning conscience!
