Cutting-edge techniques have revealed startling features inside the cell that force only one reasonable conclusion—a supernatural Agent must be responsible for life.
In The Cell’s Design: How Chemistry Reveals the Creator’s Artistry, biochemist Fazale Rana, PhD, uses a common scientific method based on pattern recognition to identify the God of the Bible as the Creator.
Dr. Rana says "this approach inherently depends on what science currently knows about life's chemistry and how the organization of biochemical systems relates to the characteristics of humanly designed systems—not on what science doesn't know."
Going far beyond irreducible complexity, Rana shows how the molecular features of the cell—some of the smallest structures in nature—manifest the same characteristics displayed in human designs. This similarity points to a resonance between the mind of man and the mind of God. Molecular motors, information properties, chicken-and-egg systems, and quality-control checkpoints are only a few of more than a dozen remarkable indicators for design explained in The Cell's Design.
Rana's work has been published in peer-review journals and he has made presentations at scientific meetings showing that good science garners the respect of the scientific community, even when it supports creation.
"In Darwin's day, a living cell was thought to be quite simply - for all practical purposes - little more than a microscopic blob of gelatin. Rana lays out what contemporary science has learned about the cell's design, and he poignantly and provocatively shows that it is the handiwork of not only an Intelligent Designer but specificlally the God revealed in Scripture."
