We also see machines in living systems. That’s not to say that cells or living systems on the whole are “machines,” but they do contain machines.
A paper likens the proteome to a language with a “quasi-universal grammar” possessing the minimum complexity necessary to function as a cell.
The laws of the universe are necessary for life to exist. But they aren’t sufficient to explain how life arose.

In his review, he critiques Behe’s argument, because according to Dr. Story, Rana merely regurgitates Behe. Rana, like Behe before him, may be commended for providing a layman’s description of a number of astonishingly intricate cellular processes. But his portraits of cellular workings will fail to convince most mainstream scientists for the same reason that Behe’s book has been roundly dismissed: Read More ›
