Bryson, Bill - On proteins, cells and DNA
Type of Spiritual Experience
More evidence that a plan existed and a very complex plan whose objective was the creation of life
These are just a small number of the examples which point towards there being a specific plan within each increment or configuration to produce the species. A plan which often brought together a very large number of 'strands' of development and design, some of which were not biological but could be related to environmental input. As such there is a plan within the incremental plan!
A description of the experience
Bill Bryson - A Short History of Nearly Everything
There are several hundred thousand types of protein, perhaps a million … to be of use proteins have to be folded into a very specific shape.... You then need DNA to reproduce the proteins – replicate them. So we have a paradoxical situation. Proteins cannot exist without DNA and DNA has no purpose without proteins. Are we to assume, then, that they arose simultaneously with the purpose of supporting each other?...................
without the cell, proteins and DNA are nothing more than interesting chemicals, but without the chemicals, the cell has no purpose...................
[The next proof of 'design' at work is the frequency with which a process only has validity within the 'life making' context.]
......... if you make monomers wet they don't turn into polymers – except when creating life on Earth. How and why it happens then and not otherwise is one of biology’s great unanswered questions
