We wonder what kind of planning should be made and what type of programmes should be run in order to be able to construct a living machine like a human being over a single cell? Here we think open-mindedly and we ask this question in its real sense.
What kind of information is needed in order to regulate the structures of tissues and organs and their relationship with each other and to make them function in coordination? How complex is this information? What kind of technology and sensitive and small machinery make possible the production of brain’s spectacular folds, marvelous web of the neural system, unbelievable circulatory system, the fascinating structure of the skeleton and the outer skin which is continuously renewed?
With the following findings, it is revealed in what an extraordinary structure brain and memory is designed: “Brain has a memory of 2.5 billion gigabytes (GB). This is an enough space to record a video film of HD (High Definition) quality lasting 300 years. Besides, the number of connections between cells in an area of 1-centimetre cube is more than the number of stars in Milky Way (that is 100 billion stars). In the brain, there are no two cells resembling each other. Thanks to the connection map in the brain, each of us maintains his or her life as unique individuals.”
 Taken from the information provided by Associate Head of the Department of Physiology at Yıldırım Beyazıt University Prof. Sinan Canan, on latest work on brain during the Conference called NBeyin.
Now imagine this. We want to build and operate a human body. For this purpose, we will make a lifeless cell with the help of a nano-machine. What are the high-tech requirements for the production, in a synthetic way, of a lifeless molecule that will produce cells making up the human body, determine which materials make brain cells, which proteins make up the heart cells or skin cells, that will have a data store containing the plan of human body and that will copy itself to the cells which are multiplied by mitosis and what a great accumulation of information is needed for that purpose? Think of this. Each one of seven billion people living today is made up of 100 trillion cells. And each cell has a diameter of one thousandth of a millimeter.
In fact, this fantastic data store is nothing other than lifeless and consciousness DNA molecule which exists in every cell, which is so much small, of the human body, and which contains 3 billion genes inside. How can such a serial production and elaborate workmanship be done without a nature using high science and developed technology, having perfect machines and factories? Or can it happen on its own? Yes, if it is claimed that these are done by nature, then, we claim that these developed machines and high science/knowledge should be handed over to nature.
As you will clearly see in the video entitled “Plant of Resurrection” that we will provide below, since the qualities that are necessary to make DNA do not appear to be owned by Nature, then wouldn’t it be more logical and reasonable to look for another external cause? This point of view appears to be a healthier and correct scientific approach and an alternative scientific interpretation. It opens a door for us where we can develop our thesis further.
The saying that “We act as if there is no creator, science is neutral” is nothing more than nonsense, which is so far away from being believable. It claims to be impartial but, there is no impartiality. In all situations and under all conditions, it is treated as if there is no creator. From the very beginning, all assumptions are based on the non-existence of God and everything is narrated accordingly. They say, “A flower does this” What kind of impartiality is this? They say, “Nature does that” And even they say, “Nature creates…” What kind of impartiality is this? Let us quote a striking sentence from the 2014 Cosmos documentary and receive your comment on it. In one part of the documentary, it is exactly stated like this: “Every living thing is a masterpiece written by nature and arranged by the evolution!” Besides, this documentary openly says that evolution is scientific and the existence of God is nonsense and a fairy tale. What impertinence! How do they dare? Even we do not use such assertive expressions.
Although we talked about a truth shining like the sun, and even though we put our issues with such a clarity that could be understood and accepted by anyone who believes in science and put his hand his heart and by someone with the simplest mind, we concluded our words as following: “This is our personal opinion, we believe in this way, and we leave it to your heart and appreciation” and so on. We have never attempted to take away his or her free will from anybody.
As we know, where there is a trial, there is no absolute certainty and there shouldn’t be. What is valuable is not believing unavoidably and forcefully, but believing by preferring the reasonable at heart. Impartiality and scientific approach also necessitate that. This is being partial to the Right and Truth. But this style of presentation which we criticize is not being partial for the right. It is not science either. It is nothing more than presenting what you fictionalize in your mind as science. This example, which is narrated during a whole part of Cosmos 2014 documentary, is very interesting: the dogs used to be wolves in the past, so to say and, then they were tamed by humans and became dogs. And this happened through “artificial selection”, something similar to natural selection. All varieties of dog species came into existence with human intervention. What kind of fiction is this? What is its difference from openly telling a story? What kind of science is this? How do we know this is the right way?
Intermediary Note on “Natural Selection”: It is an imaginary system based wholly on fiction developed by Theory of Evolution in order to explain the new species of living beings. Supposedly, the strong in nature win as they are more powerful compared to the weak and they succeed in transmitting their genetic properties to the next generations and they survive. In other words the strong ones are selected naturally, that is they are chosen. However, it is not properly explained how the wide difference between the emergence of new species and the survival of the strong could be narrowed.
Providing the resemblance of all living beings to each other as an evidence of their reproduction from each other through mechanisms of evolution, this is very similar to the opinion which says “Anyhow, everything happens on its own, why do we need a God?” Can you have a look, how the interpretation differs? Now they make their interpretation from that point of view and we from our own and say that: “Their resemblance is not coming from the fact that they are reproduced from each other; to the contrary, shouldn’t it be due to the fact that all have the same and one creator? Shouldn’t they resemble each other due to this? We can interpret this issue from this perspective and see it just like that. For us, this is more logical. On the one hand, it is known that an ear will remain dysfunctional as long as its every part does not work simultaneously, and on the other hand, it will be said that the transition between the species will take place slowly in millions of years. Then how it is possible? The ears will not find the opportunity to come into existence. Here you are: the concept of irreducible complexity.
Let’s accept for a second that, all evolutions take place with beneficial mutations (indeed mutations are harmful, but let us assume they are beneficial). Then, how come so many living beings from each corner appear so many different living beings? This process is so slow but, there are 10 million species and trillions of individual living beings. Is this so? If these formations take place with unconscious evolutionary mechanisms, then this work cannot be done so fast. There could not be so many different species of living beings. And they could not be so excellent. Can you find a defect in your body? (While there are such an excellent design and functioning taking place before our eyes, let’s leave some small, exceptional and erudite defects aside, and have a look at the big picture, how marvelous it looks.) We, as logical and conscious human beings, should have easily done much better than what these unconscious mechanisms do.
But we can’t do it. What should we conclude from this? We appreciate a portrayal of nature done by a painter, but the actual one is much more beautiful. It is said that “The universe is made as a result of an explosion”. However, normally an explosion demolishes, scatters, spoils and could not bring together the matter, can’t give them orderly shapes. This explosion cannot produce human beings who speak, feel, cry, get sad, smile! How are we expected to believe in this? This is the biggest nonsense in the history! The universe is made out of an explosion so are we, you and everything. Big Bang could just be a starting point. But could it suffice to explain this wonderful universe and to become its real owner?
At that point, we suggest you watch a very impressive video. Please have a very careful look at it. Where the machines and the high knowledge of nature are hidden in this surprising situation? I wonder, if you could find out. In this video, you will see how a plant, which is seen as a piece of thorn, a brush rolling down in the desert, resurrects, so to speak, with water and how the buds, fallen into the earth, bush out with water. This video that you will watch now is called “Resurrection Plant”. There is a verse of Quran (Ar-Rum 19) saying the following: “He brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living and brings to life the earth after its lifelessness. And thus, you will be brought out”. This video is a concrete example of this situation.
Now we continue. Now there are experiments on storing data on DNA. Dr. Nick Goldman of the European Bioinformatics Institute, have succeeded as of today in storing 2.2 petabytes (2200 terabyte) data on 1-gram DNA. This means recording a Full HD film lasting 100 million hours on 1-gram DNA (1 terabyte= 1000GB). It is stated that storing data on DNA is the cheapest way of storing data and nothing can come ever closer to this. It is also a very stable storing area. Recorded data can be held in deep-freezer for thousands of years. Digital data storage, requires more space, has shorter lifespan and consumes high levels of electrical energy. However, human DNA does not such a problem, it obtains its energy through food, it does not use mains power and it does not occupy a space larger than a tiny cell culture container in the laboratory. It is estimated that 57 kilograms of DNA could be sufficient to store all digital data existing in the world.
Even such a scenario was made: a meteor is going to be the world, if we record the whole accumulation of information made by humankind to a few hundred kilograms of DNA, and the restore it down two kilometres below the surface of the earth in a diamond mine, within a deep-freezer, our grand-grand children who come out of shelter after thousands of years from this catastrophic disaster, thanks to the data stored on DNA, could continue onwards in our Civilization from the point where we had stopped. However, 1-gram DNA is so small that it can’t be seen when you put in a test-tube. In order to put the genetic data storage in practice use of daily life, it is necessary to find a way of recording and deleting data as we do on our computers. Since it is not so each to record data in genetic code, which has billions of command data and which is copied in trillions of human cells one by one, it is necessary to develop such a super system which can read and copy trillions of cells at the same time at a speed of a flash-memory and it is not possible to develop such a system in the near future.
 The article at Khosann.com/Kozan Demircan/”Scientists have stored data on DNA” was benefited.
Now please think of this. Since DNA Molecule, whose spectacular properties we have not been able to use in daily life as we can’t develop the necessary technologies, does not seem to come into existence accidentally and it is so obvious that it is the product of a grand design;
Then, you should compare the necessary tremendous level of science and technical development that should be achieved and then decide whether such a knowledge and technology exist or not.
