‘Primitive’ cell inspires advanced robot mini-sub

See how the advance of scientific knowledge supports intelligent design!

Darwin’s Black BoxDarwin’s Black Box
Dr. Michael J. Behe


This easy-to-read book does a top notch job of explaining one of the most vexing problems in biology: the origin of the complexity that permeates all of life. Behe, a professor in biochemistry who is not a Biblical creationist, comes to the conclusion that at a biochemical level, scientists have no option but to believe in intelligent design.

by Dr Jonathan Sarfati

Technology company Nekton Research has built a number of robots mimicking the design of insects and reptiles. Their latest attempt to capture ‘the essence of a biological organism’s motion’ is modelled on a Paramecium, a single-celled creature with a single moving part.

The understanding of its motion (called helical klinotaxis) and sensory system was applied to a robot. This produced probably the world’s smallest ‘autonomous underwater vehicle’ (AUV) called the MicroHunter, about the size of a cigar. It can turn on a dime, and it is so manoeuvrable in three dimensions that a former US Navy SEAL acting as underwater goalie couldn’t stop most of a swarm of them passing him to a reach a target (a light beam).

These ingenious machines are said to be ‘changing the way people are thinking about doing oceanography’.

How much more ingenious is the One who programmed these organisms (which are much smaller than the man-made device) in the first place!
