Is there any such thing as a simple cell?

One of the main teaching points found in the Darwinian explanation for evolution is that life sprang up from non-living matter as a simple single celled organism. Then as time elapsed, this simple cell morphed in complexity, becoming more and more elaborate until we have complex multicellular living creatures.

In this principle, there is a deception hidden into the fabric of the idea. It revolves around the question, is there really any such thing as a simple cell? We readily see an increase in complexity of higher organisms, but what about the first single celled critter?

According to geneticist Michael Denton, “the break between the nonliving and the living world represents the most dramatic and fundamental of all of the discontinuities of nature. Between a living cell and the most highly ordered non-biological systems, such as a crystal or a snowflake, there is a chasm as vast and absolute as it is possible to conceive. Even the tiniest of bacterial cells is a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, made up of 100 thousand million atoms, far more complicated than any machine built by man and absolutely without parallel in the non-living world.”

It is interesting to see that the molecular design present in all living cells, is the result of program language found in the interior structure of DNA. It does not matter if it is a bacteria or a human being, so-called simple cell or the tissue found in our brains, the complexity of design goes all the way down.

Nobel Prize-winner Jacques Monod supports this view. He says, “The simplest living system known to us, the bacterial cell…in its overall chemical plan is the same as that of all other living beings. It employs the same genetic code and the same mechanism of translation as do, for example, human cells. Thus, the simplest cells available to us for study have nothing primitive about them… no vestiges of truly primitive structures are discernable.”

Oxford professor Dr. John Lennox says, “The cell is restlessly productive as its many micro miniature assembly lines produce their unending quotas of protein machines. The existence of these exquisitely constituted molecular machines is powerful evidence for some scientists of a designing intelligence.

 The complexity of design goes all the way down.

Life is not an example of self-organization. Life is in fact specified and genetically directed. Living things are instructed by the genetic software encoded in their DNA.


The amount of information stored in the DNA of any living creature would fill entire Libraries where they would be overflowing with books.The evidence is overwhelming.
