Autophagy - The Process of Cell Degradation and Recycle
January 10, 2017
The below article discusses the discoveries related to autophagy - or the process of how the cell degrades and recycles it's components. In fact, the research in the article won the Nobel Prize for his work!
In his research they found that, "Mutations in autophagy genes can cause disease, and the autophagic process is involved in several conditions including cancer and neurological disease".
The article also states, "In the 1950s and 1960s, researchers recognized that some animal cells use autophagy to recycle proteins and other cellular machinery". It goes on to say, "Ohsumi and and his team identified 15 essential genes involved in the process" and finally it states, " Ohsumi and others have shown that autophagy plays a crucial role in embryo development, cell differentiation, and the immune system. A breakdown in autophagy can lead to a wide variety of diseases, including cancer, diabetes, and Huntington disease. A healthy autophagy system is correlated with longevity, and a faulty one can accelerate symptoms of aging. One reason autophagy has become so important is the realization that it is a highly regulated process, not just some automatic breakdown".
Evolution would say that not only did cellar systems randomly form through mutations, but complementary systems needed to maintain the cell also formed. This is a blind faith that goes against modern and observable science. How could random mutations know that the cell would need to be maintained through a process of degradation and recycling? This process could only have been known by an intelligent designer who could foresee the need! The cell is a complex system comprised of many interdependent sub-systems and processes all run by the complexity of the information in the DNA. This could only have come about through a super intelligent mind. God is that mind.
