Why or how can any thoughtful scholar would ever call any life form – SIMPLE? Nature books are a great source of enjoyment and learning. They generally begin however with the required mantra about the beginning of life, and there they depart from excellent observation, careful study, beautiful photography to parrot the ruling paradigm of our evolutionary journey.

The authors will prattle on about intricate details of microscopic changes, in vast, eons beyond our reach or ken, in unknown oceans or continents that over those long, long ago ages are said to have undergone volcanism, earthquake, flooding, folding,………..multiple millions of years before our time, yet we are to believe as truth, the fanciful stories of this thing transforming itself into that thing and always either being equipped with the astounding ability to reproduce by asexual means, or conveniently for the little life form, evolution (that mindless, purely materialistic process) kindly arranged that the little life form should have a sexual mate exactly suited for the furthering of like kinds.

So looking through some of my nature books, it’s pretty well standard to see drawings of the geologic time scale, with bacteria and trilobites very near the bottom of the supposed early life. Simple at the bottom until in triumph we attain Simon at the top. But the problem for the believers in evolution is there is absolutely nothing simple about bacteria, trilobites, worms, starfish, slugs, or any life form on earth.

It’s fascinating to watch and listen as Howard Berg talks about his life’s work, bacteria.

Howard Berg of Harvard brings in a lot of fascinating historical detail. Microscopic E. coli, some with multiple flagella, have precision rotary motors. Complex motors in highly organized clusters abound by the billions in our bodies.

Dr. Berg accepts evolution, as do many academics. But listen to his fascinating discussion of bacteria, and ask yourself why any intelligent human being would, after seeing as Dr. Berg does, the brilliance of these life forms, embedded within our own vastly more complex bodies,……how any thoughtful scholar could ever call any life form – SIMPLE. But books abound with references to ‘simple’ life forms, that sprang into being from nothingness, and organized themselves, minus the help of brains or outside help into ever more complex life, until, with the magic of Time, as much as you need or want,……the bacterium steps out as a biologist, who then regales us with his evolutionary ascent through eons of time.

Little problem. In these fairy-tales posing as science, there is no such thing, anywhere on earth, that can be called ‘simple life.’
