Apoptosis - Programmed Cell Death - More Observable Science Supporting Intelligent Design
July 12, 2017
The article linked to the picture below discusses "apoptosis" or programmed cell death. The article describes this process as "a fundamental and tightly regulated process that occurs in all higher organisms. It is, for example, essential for normal embryonic development, during which superfluous cells must be disposed of in an orderly fashion".
The article goes on to discuss the process by stating, "The demolition of these specific cells begins with the activation of the gene egl-1, which codes for a so-called Bcl-2-like protein and which promotes apoptosis. The coding sequence of egl-1 in the nuclear DNA is then transcribed into messenger RNA molecules. These are exported from the nucleus into the surrounding cytoplasm, and delivered to the ribosomes, which translate the information into the corresponding EGL-1 protein". The researcher states, "We have been able to show that certain microRNAs inhibit this process by triggering the destruction of egl-1 mRNAs, this ensures that no progenitor cell is killed before it has had time to produce the daughter cells required to perpetuate its lineage."
Microbes to man evolution would have you believe this sophisticated process, along with thousands of other complex and integrated processes, came about through random mutations and luck! The Bible would have you believe that a very intelligent designer created these processes. Observable science refutes the first and supports the latter.
My goodness, just take a look at the image below. It documents the process of apoptosis! Do you not agree with intelligent design? If not, you are willingly ignorant of God.
