In this video, the Argentinian-born scientist explains how he discovered God in DNA.
Wall Street millionair turned kiruv Rabbi Yaron Reuven is using this highly interesting material and explains it in English (he mentioned that Dr Rubinstein is from Venezuela, which may be the smallest inaccuracy in the story):
Dr Yeshayahu Rubinstein explains that there are two polynucleotide helixes in the DNA. He claims they are held together by a bridge of sulphur that bridges the DNA base pairs in a sequence of 10-5-6-5. And guess what? The gematria of 10-5-6-5 is יהוה! Or Yahweh, the God if the Jews. See here proof that our bodies tell the truth about its Creator!
The Hebrew skeptics site Sharp Thinking debunked this in 2014 in an article called God Hides in Small Details.
Rubinstein claims in the above video at around 4:43 minutes that his findings were published in Nature magazine in October 1986.
Here's how Dr Rubinstein is wrong:
- It wasn't possible until 2012 to view DNA with an electron microscope, see DNA imaged with electron microscope for the first time. How did Rubinstein see the DNA helix 26 years before the first DNA image through an electron microscope?
- There is no bridge of sulphur bridging the DNA helixes. Your friend here is Wikipedia:
The DNA double helix polymer of nucleic acid, held together by nucleotides which base pair together.
Nucleotides are organic molecules that serve as the monomers, or subunits, of nucleic acids like DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid). The building blocks of nucleic acids, nucleotides are composed of a nitrogenous base, a five-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose), and at least one phosphate group.
- Also according to Prof. in molecular genetics Rotem Sorek from the Weizmann institute:
The molecular build of DNA was already discovered by Watson and Crick in the beginning of the 50's. Science knows this structure in its details. There is no sulphur bridge between the DNA helixes whatsoever. There is also no sequence of 10, 5, 6 and 5.
- Gil'ad Diamant from the Sharp Thinking site mentioned above looked up the October 1986 edition of Nature, but didn't see the article involved:
So he decided to call up Rubinstein who said that it appeared on a one-page piece about the Watson-Crick Structure of DNA. In the end, it allegedly said something like:"By the way, this is the name of God in the DNA".
When asked about the fact that there is no mention whatsoever about the article on the Internet, and if he could show a copy of the article, Rubinstein claimed that he unfortunately gave away his last copy of the article...
