Molecular biology and biochemical articles demonstrating design theory application or failed support for biological evolution.
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 […]Read the rest
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 be discovered so that the theory makes sense. Seventy years later, the massive […]Read the rest
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 […]Read the rest
DNA doesn’t lie!
Genetic information is being collected for plants, animals, and bacteria containing whole genomes. The study of comparative sequencing or synteny was thought by evolutionists to be hard evidence that would re-draw the tree of life showing all creatures are related. Nothing could be farther from the truth. A good theory is one that has predictive […]Read the rest
Origin of Life Research
Ian Musgrave of the Website Talkorigins (http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/abioprob/abioprob.html) says creationist scientists are fraudulent when they calculate probabilities for the production of a single functional protein entity by purely materialistic means. These calculations extrapolate exponentially as additional biomolecules are considered in the search for a rational explanations for the materialistic origins of life. The statistical analysis of probability […]Read the rest
ENCODEd in the Blueprints for Living
More study of the human genome has revealed the existence of a massive library of digitally coded information in the ‘junk DNA’ left over from millions of years of evolution! Although touched on in another post, enough cannot be said of the discoveries being made by the ENCODE project of molecular studies of the genome […]Read the rest
Molecular Phylogeny Proves Evolution is False.
In 1837, Charles Darwin sketched out for the first time a tree of life that he thought might visualize the idea of descent of animal lineages with modifications which would help to explain the origin of species. Though the tree of life idea had been used to visualize taxonomy by Carl Linneaus, it became foundational […]Read the rest
DNA: Evidence for the Master’s Blueprint – Part 1
In this article, a history of the science leading up to the discovery of the DNA molecule and its encoded message for building life forms is considered. The history leading up to these many discoveries is amazing in many respects. The synergy of scientific procedures and improvements in technology through time must be credited for the advancements […]Read the rest
If I only had a brain! Sea anemones claimed as a brainless ancestor!
An article on recent genetic studies of the simple sea anemone, in this case Nematostella vectensis, show that the genes involved in the development of the human head (and other animals with heads) are present in this creature even though it has no head. These genes help produce one end of the animal which was […]Read the rest
DNA: Evidence of a Master’s Blueprint: Part Two
In Part One of this introductory series on DNA, a brief look at the history of the scientific achievements leading to our current understanding of genetics was presented. The series of scientific efforts that led to the discovery of the DNA molecule and the subsequent analysis of the molecule showed how genetic information is passed from generation to generation. The […]Read the rest
