I was watching one of JWProclaimers YouTube video uploads: "Unlocking The Mystery of Life Intelligent Design"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ud8Yy_T0694

 

The documentary discussed how intelligent design had to be responsible for all the motors we see in cells. (Around the 15 min. mark)

Of special interest is the 'flagellar rotary motor' that is seen in the cells of certain bacteria:

I found it jaw-droppingly amazing what these microscopic molecular motors are capable of doing!

The scientists in the documentary believe 'natural selection' cannot have accounted for these machines.

Abstract

The bacterial flagellar motor is a complex biological rotary molecular motor, which is situated in the cell envelopes of bacteria. Whereas most biological motors use adenosine triphosphate as their energy source, the rotation of the flagellar motor is driven by a flow of charged ions across the bacterial plasma membrane. The motor powers the rotation of helical flagellar filaments at speeds of up to several hundred hertz. These rotating filaments act like propellers, pushing the cells through their environment. The motors are regulated by one of the best‐characterised biological signalling pathways, the chemotaxis pathway. This pathway changes the swimming pattern of the bacteria in response to changes in the concentration of external chemicals so that they move into environments, which are optimal for their growth. Other pathways can regulate the flagellar motor and the motor itself can respond to changing conditions by adapting parts of its structure.

 

Key Concepts:

--Many bacteria swim using a small biological rotary motor which is powered by the movement of ions (H+ or Na+) across the plasma membrane.

 

--The bacterial flagellar motor consists of a rotor which rotates against stator units that are anchored to the peptidoglycan cell wall.

 

--Torque is generated by the interaction of the stator units, MotA and MotB (or PomA and PomB for Na+‐driven motors), with FliG in the rotor.

 

--Despite the fact that the driving ions always flow in one direction through the stator units, many flagellar motors can switch between clockwise and counterclockwise rotation.

 

--The structure of the flagellar motor is highly dynamic, some of its components undergo rapid turnover while the motor is functioning in response to changing conditions.

 

--A complex signalling pathway regulates the motor output in response to environmental signals ensuring that bacteria swim towards nutrient rich environments.

(Romans 1:20) For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable.
 

 

You don't need to be a scientist to discern that intelligent design requires an intelligent designer, or that creation requires a creator.

You just need a little humility and to be conscious of your spiritual need.^_^

If you have never seen this video, I highly recommend that you watch it.Congrats 10 out of 10.gif

At around the 45 min. mark, you get to take a video tour of a cell and it is like something out of a Star Trek movie!

Especially when the machines escort a 'programmed string of protein' over to the exit, where another machine opens a portal

so that the string can be taken to yet another machine.  It's like watching a star ship leaving space dock.:D

 

Just made me beam with joy to see Jehovah (The Intelligent Designer) FINALLY getting the credit he deserves for HIS incredible creation. YES Grin.GIF

 

Thanks for sharing this video, and all the others you've uploaded, with the rest of us JWProclaimer!Thanks BUNCHES.gif

 This is not only a proof but it is a  PATTERN that Jehovah leave behind.

I have the dvd, in fact I have bought most of the Illustra dvds.

It's a shame that copyright material is uploaded to youtube apparently by a witness.  

Sometimes I can't pick up jw.org in my building. I have resorted to other uploads. Yes, copyright laws are difficult to interpret is one is making no impact on the author's/publisher's  financial revenue.
