Francis Collins, one of the two scientists who deciphered the human genome, has announced that although he was an atheist until some 30 years ago, he now believes in Allah (God).

A report on the subject published in The Sunday Times read:

    The scientist who led the team that cracked the human genome is to publish a book explaining why he now believes in the existence of God and is convinced that miracles are real.

    Francis Collins, the director of the US National Human Genome Research Institute, claims there is a rational basis for a creator and that scientific discoveries bring man "closer to God".

    ... [unravelling the human genome] allowed him to "glimpse at the workings of God".

    "When you make a breakthrough it is a moment of scientific exhilaration because you have been on this search and seem to have found it, "he said. "But it is also a moment where I at least feel closeness to the creator in the sense of having now perceived something that no human knew before but God knew all along."
