Crick, Francis Harry Compton (1916–2004)

Francis Crick English molecular biologist who shared, with James Watson, the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for elucidating the double-helix structure of DNA. (The Prize was also shared with M. H. F. Wilkins who supplied X-ray data on which the discovery was based.)

Crick was led by his belief that the chances of life originating on Earth were very low to argue the case for panspermia and, in particular, a radical form of this hypothesis known as directed panspermia. More recently, Crick was involved with examining the possibility that RNA was the first replicator molecule on Earth during an early biological era known as the "RNA world". For the latter part of his career, he was at the Salk Institute, California.

CHAPTER IV
I will not give my rights to other gods. I have allowed the creation of four substances, four times, and four comers; because they are necessary things for creatures. The books of Jews, Christians, and Moslems, as of those who are without, accept in a sense, i.e., so far as they agree with, and conform to, my statutes. Whatsoever is contrary to these they have altered; do not accept it. Three things are against me, and I hate three things. But those who keep my secrets shall receive the fulfilment of my promises. Those who suffer for my sake I will surely reward in one of the worlds. It is my desire that all my followers shall unite in a bond of unity, lest those who are without prevail against them. Now, then, all ye who have followed my commandments and my teachings, reject all the teachings and sayings of such as are without. I have not taught these teachings, nor do they proceed from me. Do not mention my name nor my attributes, lest ye regret it; for ye do not know what those who are without may do.

DNA, and the Nucleotide Links         


"I have allowed the creation of four substances, four times and four corners; because they are necessary things for creatures."
this is a brief description of the DNA.

This verse comes from scripts of Yedizi spiritual books.
These texts are from the 11th century well before the discovery
of the double helix DNA.

Four Substances: The information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases:
adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T)

Four times : DNA bases pair up with each other, A with T and C with G, to form units called base pairs

Four Corners: Each base is also attached to a sugar molecule and a phosphate molecule. Together, a base, sugar, and phosphate are called a nucleotide.

Nucleotides are arranged in two long strands that form a spiral called a double helix. The structure of the double helix is somewhat like a ladder, with the base pairs forming the ladder’s rungs and the sugar and phosphate molecules forming the vertical sidepieces of the ladder.
