First, we have a quotation from John 1 “In the beginning was the Word”; then we have a simple molecular diagram of an amino acid, H2NCHRCOOH, but with the R group replaced with the text (probably in a cheesy overwrought gothic font) “Jesus”.
I’m trying to decide whether to do an L or R molecule… I think it would look better for the R group text to be flowing to the right, at the top of the molecule (so the carboxyl group would be pointing left, and the amine group would be at the bottom right).
So, is the joke funny at all? I find it amusing, but I wonder if it’s just stupid, or if too many people won’t get it, or think it blasphemous or something. The point is to get across the idea that you can believe in a creator god but also accept the scientific explanation for the origins of life on Earth.
