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.
Scientists claim some bacteria have been resurrected after hundreds of millions of years. But what’s really happening?
How did disgusting parasites become part of God’s “very good” creation?
The complexity and coordination of flagella attest to the work of a Master Engineer who designed and created them to function in a wonderfully intricate manner.
How Christian Gram’s providential bacteria discovery in 1883 helped improve bacterial taxonomy and identify pathogens of infectious diseases.
In God’s vibrant creation, even blood comes in different colors.
Antibiotics allow us to combat bacteria, but bacteria are fighting back.
Just as the baker uses yeasts to transform hard, flat dough into new bursting life in bread and beverages, the Creator makes new living creatures in Christ.
The molecular complexities of staphylococci mechanisms indicate the signature of a divine Designer who has placed his signature on his art piece, staphylococci.
Ever heard of Volvox? Witness the flawless pirouettes of this single-celled wonder in your local pond scum.
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!
Bacteria are everywhere—in air, water, soil, plants, animals, and even inside you!
The cells in your body are bustling with a protein, called kinesin, that faithfully delivers hefty “packages” to each destination.
What if we could design a super-small, versatile machine that could travel up blood vessels to deliver targeted medical aid?
Blood reveals much about the majesty of our Creator and Master Craftsman, irreducible complexity, and the health or disease state of the human body.
The Creator made all creatures, including amoebas, with variation and plasticity in their genome for global differences of climate, terrain, and environment.
Prominent scientists are speaking out against Darwinian evolution, and they’re not even creationists.
A Canadian graduate student has discovered a life form so different from everything else that it doesn’t fit into the plant, animal, or other known kingdoms.
It’s commonly assumed that mutations associated with genetic diseases and cancers occur because they disrupted otherwise ordered proteins, but is this the case?
References to Noah’s Ark abound in the culture and even have been used to describe recent efforts to store strains of microbes (instead of animals).
The cells in your body don’t use just simple boxes to build things. Some appear to employ a surprisingly complex geometric shape.
Even though some intestinal bacteria strains are pathogenic and deadly, most coliforms strains still show evidence of being one of God’s “very good” creations.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Evolutionists credit endogenous retroviruses with making mammalian evolution possible, but scientists now show they play a critical role in brain development.
