Cellular Biology as Evidence for God.

Cell biology fascinates me. Understanding this aspect of life leads one to conclude on many other aspects of life. This includes purpose, plan, and providence of the human race. One of the very first lessons in biology is the ‘cell theory.’ It states that all living things are composed of a functional unit of life […]

Evolutionary problems with orphan genes.

With the discovery that DNA possesses duplicate strands hiding a coded message, many thought that the mechanism of biological evolution would be proven through the inheritance of this molecule from generation to generation. We are still waiting for a genuine mechanism for evolution to occur so that the theory makes sense.  Seventy years later, the massive amount […]

The Mastadon and Pumpkin Pie Connection

I have read some strange evolutionary fairy tales and many of them are hilarious.  Here are a few I recall: humans evolved a big brain because we ate more meat.  Grandmothers exist because it benefits the younger female to have more children.  Humans are hairless because it reduces parasitism.  Humans walk upright to carry food. […]

Here’s a Fishy Story!

A new study(1) says that the enamel that coats your teeth first “evolved” in skin.  Later, it “colonized” the teeth to give us, well, teeth.  Evidence?  Fish.  Yes, fish! How so?  Seems some fish produce an enamel-like substance that coats their scales.  Looking at the genome of some modern fish like the North American gar, […]

Cellular Ribosomes: The Origin of Life?

A recent paper in the Journal of Theoretical Biology[i] boasts a solution to the “Many steps in the evolution in cellular life.”  The authors suggest that the ribosome, a cellular machine of tremendous complexity and specificity, may be an important link between cellular metabolism for life and the first living cell (or “last universal common […]

“LIFE NOT AS WE KNOW IT?”

Living things on the earth share so many traits it is hard to imagine how life could be differently assembled using molecules unlike DNA, proteins, and lipid membranes.  In fact, the known elements particularly those that are used in biochemistry limit the reactivity and functionality of molecular structures to the elements we know are used […]

Proof of evolution?

In this article, we look at five examples which are given to support the Theory of Evolution.  Mr. Peacock will present his evidence.  Dr. Moran will critically examine these proofs (beliefs). The universal genetic code.  All cells on Earth, from our white blood cells, to simple bacteria, to cells in the leaves of trees, are […]
