    Challenges facing genetics and materialism

    There are enormous confi dent expectations about the workings of DNA. For example, Craig Venter succinctly answered the question “What is life?” with the expression, “DNA-driven biological machines” [1]. Additionally, Richard Dawkins stated “DNA neither cares nor knows. DNA just is. And we dance to its music” [2]. Also in his 2007 A Life Decoded:My Genome: My Life, Craig Venter also stated that the HumanGenome Project:

    Has charted a landscape in which we will discover themost intricate workings of our species, the particularities of our own individual genetic makeup, and the promise of novel approaches to health and medicine that will mark a new stage in human development, one in which inherited biology is no longer destiny [3].
