600 Genes Involved in Fundamental Cell Division


The regulation of cellular processes occurs at many levels. Gene expression, where the DNA is transcribed into an RNA molecule, is exquisitely controlled but so are the many downstream actions as well. For instance, the new RNA molecule can be inactivated by an incredible process referred to as RNA interference. This sophisticated process targets specific genes, and as usual nature’s own tools provide researchers with excellent means to investigate and harness biology. For instance, researchers have used RNA interference to turn off one gene at a time in the human cell to determine its function.  Read more

Michael Denton has described it all as "wheels of complexity within wheels of complexity." It's irreducible complexity all the way down, from the fine-tuning of the laws of physics in the cosmos, to the properties of water and the carbon atom (Denton's Nature's Destiny), to the information and highly functionally integrated information-processing systems found in living systems. The more we learn, the more absurd the Darwinian hypothesis of random changes filtered by natural selection becomes as an explanation for almost anything but the utterly trivial. This should be obvious to anyone with even a modicum of familiarity with the basic, scientific, rational principle of inference to the best explanation. This is why arguing with Darwinists on the basis of logic and evidence is an exercise in futility. No matter how much evidence accumulates to the contrary, the Darwinist will always insist that firing random bullets into a computer will eventually make it work better. This is not just stupid. It's totally moronic. Astronomically and cosmologically illogical. Completely divorced from any concept of logic and reason. I thus conclude that Darwinism is the greatest and most destructive hoax ever advanced in the name of "science," with cataclysmic consequences in terms of both society and the lives of many individual humans, who have been lied to and taught that their lives have no ultimate meaning, purpose or significance.

here is a cool video on mitosis: The Stages of Mitosis - video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGV3fv-uZYI also of interest: Getting a tighter grip on cell division - November 2010 The molecular machinery that shepherds and literally pulls the chromosomes apart consists of paired microtubules radiating from opposite poles of the dividing cell and an enormous, but precise, molecular complex called a kinetochore. http://www.physorg.com/news/2010-11-tighter-cell-division.html Dividing Cells 'Feel' Their Way Out Of Warp "What we found is an exquisitely tuned mechanosensory system that keeps the cells shipshape so they can divide properly," Douglas N.

The hundreds of genes are involved in an absolutely fundamental biological process is yet another example of evolution’s failure to explain biology.
And that's just in mitosis. Mung
