Miracolul celulei

In cei 150 de ani care au trecut de la Charles Darwin, știința și tehnologia au făcut pași uriași pe calea cunoașterii. Cercetătorii au descoperit structura celulei. Au aflat cu surprindere că celula are un sistem atât de complex, încât ar fi fost de neimaginat pe vremea lui Darwin. Cu ajutorul unei grafici computerizate de excepție, acest film documentar te va purta într-o călătorie unică în măruntaiele mecanismelor celulei. Vei descoperi “calculatorul” central al celulei, mașina care fabrică mașini și paznicii care decid dacă intrusul este hrană sau inamic. Știința primitivă a lui Darwin nu ar fi putut anticipa niciodată așa ceva.

Trecuți prin sistemul educațional tradițional, odată desensibilizat, individul rămâne orb în fața miracolelor și evenimentelor extraordinare care îl înconjoară. Ajuns în acest stadiu, se zbate să răspundă la o singură întrebare: “Cum au luat ființă toate aceste vietăți?”. Iar aici, falsul salvator al teoriei evoluției speciilor îi vine în ajutor. Prezintă sub aparențe științifice ideea fără sens că tot ceea ce e viu există datorită unei coincidențe.

Documentarul –

The theory of evolution was advanced by Charles Darwin in the middle of the 19th century. That period greatly differed from today in terms of its extremely poor level of science and technology. 19th century scientists had to work in simple laboratories with quite primitive equipment. With the devices then available, it was impossible for them to view even bacteria.
Furthermore, scientists were still under the influence of many superstitious beliefs upheld since the Middle Ages.
One of these superstitious beliefs was that life had a simple form. Going as far back as Aristotle, this belief maintained that life could self-originate by the coincidental assembly of inanimate matter in a moist milieu.
While developing his theory, Darwin relied on the belief that life basically had a simple structure. Other biologists who adopted and defended Darwin’s theory thought the same way. For instance, the greatest advocate of Darwinism in Germany, Ernst Haeckel supposed that the living cell, which could only be viewed as a dark spot under the microscopes of that time, had a very simple structure. In one of his articles, he referred to the cell as „a simple little lump of albuminous combination of carbon”.
The theory of evolution was based on assumptions such as these. The pioneers of evolutionary theory like Haeckel, Darwin and Huxley thought that life had a very simple form and that this simple form could originate by itself as a result of chance.
However, they were mistaken.
In the one and a half centuries that have passed since Darwin’s day, giant steps have been taken in science and technology. Scientists discovered the structure of the cell to which Haeckel referred as „a simple little lump of albuminous combination of carbon”. They saw with surprise that it is not simple at all as earlier supposed. It was revealed that the cell has a system so complex as to have been unimaginable in Darwin’s time.
A renowned molecular biologist, Michael Denton, makes the following analogy to describe what kind of a structure the cell has:
To grasp the reality of life as it has been revealed by molecular biology, we must magnify a cell a thousand million times until it is twenty kilometers in diameter and resembles a giant airship large enough to cover a great city like London or New York. What we would then see would be an object of unparalleled complexity and adaptive design. On the surface of the cell we would see millions of openings, like the port holes of a vast space ship, opening and closing to allow a continual stream of materials to flow in and out. If we were to enter one of these openings we would find ourselves in a world of supreme technology and bewildering complexity. (Michael Denton, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis. London: Burnett Books, 1986, p. 328)
