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.
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.
If God created everything good and with a purpose, why are there disease-causing bacteria and viruses in the world?
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!
If God’s creation was originally “very good,” wouldn’t we find some good roles that viruses play, even in our fallen world?
Within the biblical framework of earth history microbes, fully-functioning stromatolites and even stromatolite reefs may have been created by God before Day 3 of the Creation Week.
Primordial proteins or common designs?
Ever heard of Volvox? Witness the flawless pirouettes of this single-celled wonder in your local pond scum.
Some locations on earth seem just too extreme to support life. One such extreme environment is vents at the bottom of the ocean.
Food-gathering slime molds can build a complex network as efficient as Tokyo’s rail system in just 24 hours, without giving it a second thought!
“Cute” may not be the best word to describe water bears. But once you learn more about them, words like “indestructible,” “one of a kind,” and “unbelievable” jump to mind!
Scientists were shocked to discover bacteria hidden deep in caves—far from any contact with humans—that already had the ability to fight antibiotics.
What if we could design a super-small, versatile machine that could travel up blood vessels to deliver targeted medical aid?
The objectives of this article are to explain the mysterious appearance of crimson-colored bacteria on food and communion bread/wafers, over the centuries, as well as to describe the biological basis
During scientific discovery more questions often arise. This leads to one of the most wondrous aspects of science: the more we learn, the more we realize how much is left to learn.
Bacteria may seem like senseless life-forms, but researchers have discovered that the tiny organisms have a sense of smell.
Microbiology is dominated by evolution today. Just look at any text, journal article, or the topics presented at professional scientific meetings.
There is a need for parasites such as Entamoeba histolytica to be addressed from a biblical perspective that may include their original symbiotic or mutualistic association in man.PDF Download
Tiny bacteria-bound flagella have a clutch-controlled microscopic motor much like that of ordinary automobiles, according to research conducted at Indiana University–Bloomington and Harvard University.
For many years the roles of microbes as part of God’s wonderful design have been neglected. Perhaps it is because many people associate microbes as the cause of death, disease, and suffering.PDF Download
Microbes thought by some to be as old as eight million years are now alive and well (along with their progeny) in a lab at Rutgers University, reports the BBC.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
