The Spiritual Cell
There are, scientists estimate, about 37.2 trillion cells in the human body. In The Cell’s Design Fazale Rana says on page 142 “that the cell’s systems are, at their essence, information based”. In Discover, on 24 August 2013, Christie Wilcox describes cells as “complex and intricate … mini-machines”. And she goes on to say: “These tiny computers process millions of signals every day. They communicate across unfathomable distances to coordinate disparate body parts”. In their convincing refutation of Darwinian random evolution, Heretic, Matti Leisola and Jonathan Witt write on page 34 that “chemical structure does not explain … the rules that cells follow … chemical structure doesn’t explain it any better than the chemical composition of ink and paper explains the information in a book …”.
A moment’s reflection shows this to be true. If the written instructions that accompany a device are placed on or near the device nothing will happen. Something more has to occur. The information in the instructions has to be understood by human intelligence and then translated into action by that intelligence. And that which is understood and translated into action is information which is non-physical.
In fact, information, which is the basis of life, is not physical – it cannot be seen or heard, weighed or measured. Our bodies are, of course, run by our cells, and our cells operate through non-physical information – information which is, in essence, part of a non-material reality. It follows that we are entirely saturated with that non-materiality. And that non-materiality can only be part of a spiritual world that permeates and directs every aspect of our being.
