At Phys.org: The thinking undead: How dormant bacteria calculate their return to life

This fascinating research presents yet another remarkable example of biochemical complexity with a functionality dependent upon environmental sensing, signal evaluation, operational feedback, managing stored resources, and survivability–all within a supposedly inert “spore.” I’ll call that evidence of intelligent design.

Asked at Evolution News: How much can evolution really accomplish?

Anderson: “The deeply held assumption of nearly all evolutionists is that evolution can do everything. After all, we’re here aren’t we! So there is little point in even asking the question.” Actually, in religious circles, if anyone treated their sect’s creed the way Darwinians have treated evolution, they would be regarded as a cult.

Scientists’ reaction to ever more of the cell’s complexity in its own environment

At Nature: “I was so overwhelmed by the beauty and the complexity that in the evenings I would just watch them like I would watch a documentary,” recalls Kukulski, a biochemist at the University of Bern, Switzerland.” No wonder panpsychism is catching on, among those who are forbidden to think in terms of design.

At Bio-Complexity: An Engineering Perspective on the Bacterial Flagellum: Part 3 – Observations

Schulz: This third paper (Part 3) concludes the three-part study with original observations. The observations include an ontology of the exceedingly specific protein binding relationships in the flagellum. … Finally, it is suggested that a motility organelle of this scope and scale seems profoundly unlikely to naturally evolve in the absence of foresight and mindful intent.
