The Creator filled the earth with all the chemicals that living things could ever need. But special “go-betweens” were necessary to move these treasures from their safe hiding places and convert them into forms we can use. That’s where bacteria come in.
Evolutionists must explain how cells, once they emerged from lifeless matter, diversified into the many life forms we see today. It is supposed that some extinct ancestor of the archaebacteria and eubacteria developed the necessary biologic machinery to survive.
Who knew that a well-known parasite might lead to the next major breakthrough in medical treatment? Scientists are leading the way to understand how microscopic creatures (primarily Giardia lamblia) move through the bloodstream. The goal? Construct micro-robots that can navigate the dangerous twists and turns of the bloodstream.
Scientists discovered that water bears can survive pressure up to six times the deepest ocean trench’s pressure. When subjected to the complete vacuum of space and direct radiation from the sun, they lived. Water bears can even survive for almost ten years totally dehydrated. To resurrect them, all you have to do is add water.
This article explains the mysterious origin of a new strain of Serratia marcescens that produces prodigiosin up to 40°C without any enrichment to media.
We’ve now unlocked some of our body’s incredible secrets for rapid response to the ever-changing threat from microbe invaders.
Effects of horizontal gene transfer, seen from the viewpoint of diversity analysis of bacterial lineages, may seem a rather abstruse topic.
Since bacteria can add information, could this process be used as evidence for evolution?
It is evident that disease has no origin in the beginning; furthermore, disease itself was not created, because that would not be consistent with God’s nature and the perfect creation.
The world’s most complex language system is located within every cell of your body. Scientists are now discovering that our DNA really does have hidden codes that have a practical function and purpose in our cells. Hidden codes pose a real problem for evolution.
With the correct biblical worldview in mind, Richard Lenski’s E. coli demonstrate an amazingly complex showcase for design by an all-knowing Creator.
How did disgusting parasites become part of God’s “very good” creation?
Viruses are amazingly complex and beautiful machines. They exhibit all the hallmarks of being designed, though we often fail to recognize them as such.
A group of scientists at Tel Aviv University propose that bacteria in our intestines may be responsible for human altruism.
We read in Genesis 1:31 that God made everything “very good.” If everything that God made was good, where did Giardia come from?
Bacteria depend on tail-like structures called flagella to get around. But they’re not alone.
While it’s often swept under the rug, we shouldn’t dismiss the amazing design found in soil particulates.
The emphasis of this article is to explain some of the “very good” design and purpose of Staphylococci and other good, beneficial bacteria of the nose.
Even though there are mostly good germs, many tend to focus on only the bad germs. So skeptics question whether pathogens were present on the Ark.
Named Monocercomonoides, this eukaryotic microorganism doesn’t have the slightest trace of mitochondria. How does it survive?
The list of beneficial functions for Endogenous Retroviruses continues to grow. ERVs also promote healthy immune responses—another creationist confirmation.
We need to balance our understanding of the microscopic world because it is an essential part of and critically affects our everyday life.
ERVs are found in the same location in the genome across species, so evolutionists apply their ideas of common ancestry and say ERVs demonstrate evolution.
We have seen a changing profile from HA-MRSA to CA-MRSA. This is potentially dangerous because the new strains are more virulent and aggressive.PDF Download
Evolution would require an enormous amount of change. Modern laboratory experiments have tested bacteria’s ability to change. Is this ability truly unlimited?
Another example of design which can be seen in the microbial world is the production of a blood-red pigment made by Serratia marcescens.
There are many extraordinary examples of design in the microbial world. In this chapter, two examples are given.
Based on differences in gene sets and molecular machines between bacteria and eukarya, we continue to demonstrate that unbridgeable evolutionary chasms exist.PDF Download
In the grand evolutionary paradigm, the origin of the eukaryotic cell represents one of the great mysteries and key hypothetical transitions of life.PDF Download
Evolutionists credit endogenous retroviruses with making mammalian evolution possible, but scientists now show they play a critical role in brain development.
God created bacteria to perform vital roles in every imaginable environment.
Germophobes beware: a new study suggests that all adults have face mites. But did they follow us through evolutionary history?
Ebola is a virus with a high mortality rate. The outbreak in West Africa has killed thousands. Where is God amid all this death, disease, pain, and suffering?
Microbes live in a mutualistic relationship with the human body, make up the human microbiome, and play a role in our health by modulating the immune system.
When does “stop” mean “go”? Surprisingly often! The DNA code common to all living things is not quite as uniform as previously thought.
If God’s creation was originally “very good,” wouldn’t we find some good roles that viruses play, even in our fallen world?
Microbes, fully-functioning stromatolites, and even stromatolite reefs may have been created by God before Day Three of the Creation Week.
Primordial proteins or common designs?
