Three scientists, for the first time, have tracked the complete development of an animal, a millimeter long C. Elegans worm. From the first cell division they documented the whole process to its final adult form, detailing the whole cellular process. This may appear a simple process but with each cell having 100 million base pairs of DNA it is anything but simple!
What is amazing about their findings is that from the very first cell division there is decision making! This means there must already be an understanding of the final target for each of the decisions throughout the cell divisions to happen. The final cell is different to the first starting cell as each cell specializes in different functions. There is no other explanation but an intelligent mind to guide this process. Another astounding observation that all the cells contain the same DNA, but most of that DNA is shut down apart from only what is needed for the cell to perform its task – this does not happen randomly!
This short video describes some of the findings:
One thing is very clear – natural selection cannot produce this tiny worm! As the video says “But natural selection can’t select a future function, it can only select features that are advantageous already.” Natural selection has become the answer for all the amazing complexity we see in nature but as we explain in our article this is impossible. With the only alternative of admitting intelligent design many of these atheists will tightly hold on to their belief no matter what evidence there is against.
All throughout creation we find the hallmarks of our Creator! With such intelligence in this ‘simple’ worm, imagine the mind that creates much more complicated natural structures like a human baby. This is the awesome mind of God!
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Colossians 1:15:17)
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalm 139:14)
