Do You Know How Complex a Single Cell Is?

Do You Know How Complex a Single Cell Is?

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we’ll see that there is no such thing as a simple cell.

In 1858, researcher Rudolf Virchow concluded that every cell must have come from a preexisting cell. Apparently, Charles Darwin wasn’t paying attention. The very next year he published On the Origin of Species, which theorized that the first cell was formed from non living matter.

In Darwin’s day, the cell was thought to be just a simple sac filled with jellied carbon – a concept that gave birth to the term protoplasm. After more than 150 years of cell research, we know that even protozoan and fungi cells are hugely complex. Even the simplest of these cells, eukaryotes, have an estimated 100,000 parts.

The fact that a cell cannot live without all these thousands of parts shows that cells were created in their finished form, just as the Bible says.
