Cells Make Decisions as Members of a Superbly Organized Army

Newsweek article “The Secrets of the Human Cell” explains:

“Each of those 100 trillion cells functions like a walled city. Power plants generate the cell’s energy.

Factories produce proteins, vital units of chemical commerce.

Complex transportation systems guide specific chemicals from point to point within the cell and beyond.

Sentries at the barricades control the export and import markets, and monitor the outside world for signs of danger.

Disciplined biological armies stand ready to grapple with invaders.

A centralized genetic government maintains order. Cells do their work silently, processing prodigious volumes of information with tremendous speed.”

Carl Sagan wrote,

“A living cell is a marvel of detailed and complex architecture. Seen through a microscope there is an appearance of almost frantic activity.

On a deeper level it is known that molecules are being synthesized at an enormous rate. Almost any enzyme catalyzes the synthesis of more than 100 other molecules per second.

In ten minutes, a sizeable fraction of total mass of a metabolizing bacterial cell has been synthesized.ebook

The information content of a simple cell has been estimated as around 1012 bits, comparable to about a hundred million pages of the Encyclopedia Britannica.”

    Look at hemoglobin and chlorophyll molecule Iron and Magnezium are the only 2 differences, showing intelligent design rather than pure chance

    • I don’t care for comments by anonymous people named “R.” Use your full name from now on.

      • T says:

        Hey Perry, how about letting people using the name/alias they want? It’s not like his/her comment needed to be source trusted and credited. Your reply is useless and your request excessive.

        • No.

          Cowards post anonymous comments. They get snarky and they say things that don’t deserve to be taken seriously.

          And then they leave.

          Total waste of time. I don’t argue with anonymous cowards anymore. (I did that long enough on Infidels. See http://www.cosmicfingerprints.com/infidels. 90% of those people were anonymous. Their opinions were worthless.)

          (And yes I know some people think that’s a rude or un-Christian thing to say. If so they’ve never studied Jesus or read the book of Proverbs.)

          People who want to have any kind of real conversation here will use their real names. That’s da rules. People who have valuable things to contribute aren’t afraid to use their real names.

    Perry your work is very good. I love that you are challenging the institutional sciences with actual science. Their dogmatic a-priori adherence to old science seems to go unchanged though. Darwinian evolution is not based on a philosophically neutral assessment of the evidence. But a bias assertive, self proclaimed authority in materialism.

    For these materialists, the materialism comes first, the scientific e comes there after.

    No single celled amoeba crawled out of the primordial swamp as so many of us were taught when the theory of evolution was in its heyday. Why? As the author of the article states a single cell is much more complex than anyone heretofore has given credit to. Conclusion: God in Heaven is he author and creator of Life. Amen.
