The Bible on a Pin
Israeli scientists have reproduced the Old Testament on a chip smaller than a pin head reported PhysOrg. They’re calling it the world’s tiniest Bible. A picture of the chip, the size of a grain of sugar, was included in the report on the BBC News.
The scientists managed their feat, the article explains, by sending focused beams of tiny particles, called gallium ions, onto the surface of the silicon chip. If you took a picture of the chip you would have to enlarge it more than 7 meters square to be able to read it. They plan, in fact, to print such a poster next to the nano-Bible within the Faculty of Physics building.
That’s nothing. God can put 1018 bits in one cubic millimeter of DNA. If you wrote that amount of information on DVDs, you’d have to stack them more than six times the height of Mt. Everest (08/16/2002).
Don’t be a pinhead; be sure not to miss the message inscribed in that tiny Bible: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
