Wasted minds – Richard Dawkins and Bonnie Bassler
In the above video, Bonnie Bassler explains that she, “discovered that bacteria “talk” to each other, using a chemical language that lets them coordinate defense and mount attacks. The find has stunning implications for medicine, industry — and our understanding of ourselves.”
My wife and I watched this video this morning and were struck by 3 things.
1. The fact that we are made up of 10 to 100 times more cells and bacteria that are NOT us than ARE us.
2. The unbelievable nature of the design of living systems. The “stealth bomber” of the ocean that does not cast a shadow in any kind of light penetrating the ocean surface was very intriguing to learn about. …
3. The unbelievable ignorance of this brilliant woman to ascribe all of this to “billions of years” of blind “chance” and be so completely blind to the Designer of all these systems. To think that all of this could have just “happened” is so far beyond credibility that the term “blind faith” could not be more appropriately applied to any other religion, for truly, evolution IS a religion.
How accurately the Bible records that, “professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”
Now, speaking of unbelievable ignorance, did you know that Richard Dawkins, famed atheist, makes intellectual allowance for our being designed by a higher being? The amazing thing about Dawkins’ admission is what he believes the higher intellegence could be.
Thanks for reading.
