Can a Bacterium Have Eyes and Ears?

Did you know that a single-celled bacterium can do all the tasks that the trillions of cells in our bodies do! This is the Creation Moments Minute.

Modern researchers are learning that bacteria are not a simple form of life. A bacterium is a tremendously complex creature. Scientists have discovered that bacteria actually have molecule-sized sensors, some of which act as eyes and others as ears. A dozen other proteins have been discovered that receive the information gathered by the bacteria’s “eyes” and “ears.” The collected information is then processed the same way your brain gathers and makes sense of information.

In fact, bacteria are better at sensing some things than we can. The idea that bacteria are just “simple” forms of life comes from evolution. The fact that they are so incredibly complex should urge us to think about the wise Creator who made both them and us!
