1 Chronicles 16:24-25
“Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.”

Imagine, if you will, a robot mailman carrying a huge sack of mail on its back, walking step-after-step on the sidewalk until it reaches its destination. You’d be pretty impressed with the robot’s designer, right?

These robot mailmen are complex molecular machines called kinesin. As the Discovery Institute points out, kinesins “play a vital role in many cellular processes, not just transporting materials but also aiding cell replication.”

Through computer animation, these marvelous machines come to life in a video that the Discovery Institute has posted on YouTube. As the narrator tells us, “Masterpieces of micro-engineering, kinesins are miniature machines that carry cargo from one part of the cell to another, walking along self-assembling highways called micro-tubules.”

Let me add that these robot mailmen are fast. Their two feet can take as many as a hundred steps per second! Kinesins are strong, too, carrying cargo many times their own size. And if their roadway is blocked by other cellular components, “multiple motor proteins may be used to carry a single piece of cargo together, providing enough force to break free.”

Not in billions or trillions of years could such wonders come about by accident! Only one explanation can satisfy those who haven’t been blinded by evolutionary indoctrination. Kinesins, like all molecular machines, are the work of an extremely intelligent Creator and Designer!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, how can evolutionists see such wonders inside the cell and not recognize that they were designed by Your Son? And yet, I know if it weren’t for You opening my eyes, I’d be walking in darkness, too. Amen.
