Cell Biology And Evolution

Every living thing, whether animal, plant or insect, is made of cells!!! If you magically took every cell on this planet away, there would be no living thing left, certainly not humans!!!

Before giving the next quote, I should mention that an "irreducibly complex system," is by definition, a sequence of complex chemical reactions, such that if any one of the chemical reactions was not there, or failed, the end result of the chemical reaction will fail and the entire cell may be at risk!!!

Here is a quote by an expert on cells: Michael Denton:

  • "We now know that there are in fact tens of thousands of irreducibly complex systems on the cellular level. Specified complexity pervades the microscopic biological world. Molecular biologist Michael Denton wrote, "Although the tiniest bacterial cells are incredibly small, weighing less than 10-12 grams, each is in effect a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, made up altogether of one hundred thousand million atoms, far more complicated than any machinery built by man and absolutely without parallel in the non-living world." Michael Denton: "Evolution: A Theory in Crisis," 1986 version page 250

I would assume that most of the chemical reactions that he talks about are used to create ATP molecules in the cell. ATP is a key molecule inside of every cell. ATP provides the energy for the cell. In fact, when something blocks the production of ATP energy, and the cell has low ATP energy, the cell is DEFINED to be cancerous!! The thing that blocks ATP energy inside of cancer cells is a bacteria!!!

This bacteria intercepts glucose which the cell needs to create ATP molecules. In my biography section, at the bottom of this home page, is a link to an article on cancer which talks more about ATP energy.

Cells are very complex!! The large college textbook Essential Cell Biology, Third Edition, has 8 authors and 730 pages plus many pages of other information!! The Glossary has 596 definitions!!! Cells are clearly not simple!!

In short, cells were not created by the accidents of evolution!!!

You might want to watch an excellent YouTube video as a very crude introduction to cell biology. It takes about 8 minutes - you will love this well-done video:
