Natures wonders: making spider silk (Introduction)

dhw; Which of these seems most likely to you: 1) Your God planted instructions in the very first cells to make spiders and for spiders to make silk billions of years later? 2) Your God dabbled to make spiders and spider silk? 3) The inventive mechanism that your God put there in the beginning came up with the spider and the spider's silk on its own initiative (no preprogramming, no dabbling) from within other earlier organisms?

I've admitted I don't know and no one knows. All three are possible, butI'm inclined to favor 3.

dhw: I am trying to find a logical explanation for the innovations that have led from bacteria to humans. A few days ago, you acknowledged that you had serious doubts about all the innovations and wonders being preplanned from the beginning, and also about your God dabbling. That leaves us with an inventive mechanism within the cells, of which all organisms are made.

To me the logical explanation is guidance by God. I just don't know which mechanism, we have been discussing, he used, and I am sure He infused life with intelligent information to work with. And to repeat once again, the cells alone cannot make any changes in phenoptype. The entire organism has to follow informational plans, which may well be in an inventive mechanism, yet to be discovered.
