Bacterial Physicists and Chemists

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, find out how bacteria can survive in even the worst of environments.

When living conditions become too harsh, bacteria are too small to move to a new location, so what they do is sporulate. They encase themselves into a tough coating of protein and enter a state of suspended animation. Not only do they change their form and appearance when they become spores, they are amazingly able to change their DNA structure to avoid damage from harmful types of light! As spores, bacteria can rest in bone-dry soil for up to 60 years, waiting for rain.

The entire process by which bacteria go into spore form reflects a sophisticated knowledge of both biochemistry and physics. Even in the lowly bacteria, our Creator has made it clear that He and He alone deserves the credit for the creation in which we live!
