The complexity found in the simplest bacterium known to science easily outclasses the complexity of any machine man has made. These following articles and videos make this point clear: Three Subsets of Sequence Complexity and Their Relevance to Biopolymeric Information - David L. Abel and Jack T. Trevors - Theoretical Biology & Medical Modelling, Vol. 2, 11 August 2005, page 8 "No man-made program comes close to the technical brilliance of even Mycoplasmal genetic algorithms. Mycoplasmas are the simplest known organism with the smallest known genome, to date. How was its genome and other living organisms' genomes programmed?" *******www.biomedcentral****/content/pdf/1742-4682-2-29.pdf First-Ever Blueprint of 'Minimal Cell' Is More Complex Than Expected - Nov. 2009 Excerpt: A network of research groups,, approached the bacterium at three different levels. One team of scientists described M. pneumoniae's transcriptome, identifying all the RNA molecules, or transcripts, produced from its DNA, under various environmental conditions. Another defined all the metabolic reactions that occurred in it, collectively known as its metabolome, under the same conditions. A third team identified every multi-protein complex the bacterium produced, thus characterising its proteome organisation. "At all three levels, we found M. pneumoniae was more complex than we expected," *******www.sciencedaily****/releases/2009/11/091126173027.htm Simplest Microbes More Complex than Thought - Dec. 2009 Excerpt: PhysOrg reported that a species of Mycoplasma,, “The bacteria appeared to be assembled in a far more complex way than had been thought.” Many molecules were found to have multiple functions: for instance, some enzymes could catalyze unrelated reactions, and some proteins were involved in multiple protein complexes." *******www.creationsafaris****/crev200912.htm#20091229a "The manuals needed for building the entire space shuttle and all its components and all its support systems would be truly enormous!

Michael Denton PhD Nanoelectronic Transistor Combined With Biological Machine Could Lead To Better Electronics: - Aug. 2009 Excerpt: While modern communication devices rely on electric fields and currents to carry the flow of information, biological systems are much more complex.

Cells Are Like Robust Computational Systems, - June 2009 Excerpt: Gene regulatory networks in cell nuclei are similar to cloud computing networks, such as Google or Yahoo!, researchers report today in the online journal Molecular Systems Biology. The similarity is that each system keeps working despite the failure of individual components, whether they are master genes or computer processors. ,,,,"We now have reason to think of cells as robust computational devices, employing redundancy in the same way that enables large computing systems, such as Amazon, to keep operating despite the fact that servers routinely fail." *******www.sciencedaily****/releases/2009/06/090616103205.htm Systems biology: Untangling the protein web - July 2009 Excerpt: Vidal thinks that technological improvements — especially in nanotechnology, to generate more data, and microscopy, to explore interaction inside cells, along with increased computer power — are required to push systems biology forward. "Combine all this and you can start to think that maybe some of the information flow can be captured," he says. But when it comes to figuring out the best way to explore information flow in cells, Tyers jokes that it is like comparing different degrees of infinity. "The interesting point coming out of all these studies is how complex these systems are — the different feedback loops and how they cross-regulate each other and adapt to perturbations are only just becoming apparent," he says.

What does the recent hard evidence say about novel protein-protein binding site generation? "The likelihood of developing two binding sites in a protein complex would be the square of of the probability of developing one: a double CCC (chloroquine complexity cluster), 10^20 times 10^20, which is 10^40. There have likely been fewer than 10^40 cells in the entire world in the past 4 billion years, so the odds are against a single event of this variety (just 2 binding sites being generated by accident) in the history of life.

*******fitnessmodelprogram.bonuscb**** - The Fitness Model Program - Effective Fitness Model Program Fitness Model Myths Myth 1: No matter how hard I work or how good I eat- I will NEVER look like a fitness model! This was me THEN this is me NOW!! FALSE - This was me at over 200 pounds- and this is me NOW! If I can do it- so can you! Myth 2: I have to kill myself in the gym training 3 hours a day and eat little to nothing to gain these types of results! FALSE! With the Fitness Model™ Program you will learn how to work out smarter not harder- People who train for more than 2 hours a day are overtraining and end up hindering rather than helping themselves. With my Fitness Model™ Program, you will learn exactly what to do, and your workouts will last no longer than one hour 4 to 6 times a week! After all I am speaking from experience- I have 2 kids and a business to run and don't have 3 hours a day to train in the gym! The Fitness Model Program™ is not a female bodybuilding program and won't make you big and bulky, but it will help you burn fat and speed up your weight loss. These are the facts. The weight loss research simply does not lie. The way you are currently training for fat loss is probably not only getting you less than satisfactory results, but may actually be causing overuse injuries or an unhealthy exercise obsession. You just don't have time to waste. As a busy woman, you deserve a fast acting fat loss program that helps you lose weight and burn belly fat in as little time as possible! Myth 3: I would have to buy an expensive gym membership and spend thousands of dollars on a personal trainer who would kill me in the gym to look like a Fitness Model™! FALSE! You can and will achieve that coveted Fitness Model™ Look with this Fitness Model Program™ with at home convenient workouts. I know firsthand how to achieve the Fitness Model™ look by working out in the comfort of your own home, with the essential at home fitness equipment. The fact is that you only need 5 small, easy to put away pieces of equipment that you need- and yes I only said 5 pieces of equipment.

The bigwigs at Warner must have been dreading this day; the end of the Harry Potter franchise, and a guaranteed chunk of change for the studio. Some bright spark has found a way to delay the inevitable, by splitting the final book into two parts. In some ways this is an excellent idea; as Rowling’s source novels have grown ever more biblical in proportion, the film adaptations have suffered. A more leisurely pace may benefit the story, and allow us to remember who the characters are and what they were doing when we last saw them. On the other hand, the last book does consist of chapters, nay reams, in which not a lot really happens; there’s plenty of fat to cut. We can only the extra potential length won’t be squandered on endless scenes of Ron and Hermione bickering. After the death of Professor Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his two best friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) decide not to return to Hogwarts School, where they were due to complete their final year. Dumbledore leaves them enough clues to convince Harry that they are meant to be finding the way to kill the evil wizard Voldemort; in Half-Blood Prince, Dumbledore had discovered that Voldemort had discovered how to make horcruxes – a way of splitting the soul into pieces and placing the pieces in objects in order to ensure immortality. Find and destroy the horcruxes. So far, so simple. Except that Voldemort now rules the wizarding world... and Harry, Ron, and Hermione are fugitives. And Dumbledore, infuriating even in death, has left them clues that are more mystifying than helpful. Why, for instance, is a collection of old children’s stories so important? For those who have been dead or on Mars, Harry Potter, the boy wizard, was of course first a literary and then a cinematic phenomenon, though the first two films, directed by Home Alone’s Chris Columbus, were criticised for the pedestrian nature of the adaptation. It was only with the third installment, and the vision of Alfonso Cuaron, that the series came to life. Cuaron also succeeded in coaxing credible performances out of the child leads, who until then had delivered their lines with all the emotion of planks. Since then, the franchise has gone from strength to strength, helped by the increasingly grim nature of the source material. The wizarding world has changed from a cosy place where the most important thing was winning points for your boarding house at school to somewhere much darker, where no-one is safe.Deathly Hallows Part 1 is once again directed by David Yates, who previously took the reins on Order of the Phoenix and the Half-Blood Prince, which may be a bit of a disappointment to those who had hoped Cuaron would return for the final installment. However, Yates did a fine job on Phoenix, the most unwieldy of the novels, though Half-Blood Prince was less satisfactory. If he can find the form that he achieved with Phoenix then we are in safe hands. Also returning, in addition to the three leads, are Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Griffiths, John Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Alan Rickman, Fiona Shaw, Timothy Spall, Imelda Staunton, David Thewlis, Julie Walters and Bonnie Wright. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 will be released in cinemas November 19 2010. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will be released in cinemas July 15 2011.

There are about.... Ten-trillion levels of intensity to human hearing (from threshold to pain, 0 to 130 decibels). This makes the sense of hearing the widest ranging of all senses. The ear is capable of detecting pressure variations of less than two-ten-thosanths-of-a-millionth of barometric pressure. This moves the ear drum about one-hundreth-millionth of an inch. This threshold of hearing corresponds to a vibration width of only one-hundreth of an hydrogen atom’s diameter. (Hydrogen is the smallest atom.)

It is, after all, some notion of functional behavior that distinguishes life from inanimate matter, and it is a challenge to quantify this functionality in a language that parallels our characterization of other physical systems. Strikingly, when we do this (and there are not so many cases where it has been done!), the performance of biological systems often approaches some limits set by basic physical principles. While it is popular to view biological mechanisms as an historical record of evolutionary and developmental compromises, these observations on functional performance point toward a very different view of life as having selected a set of near optimal mechanisms for its most crucial tasks.,,,The idea of performance near the physical limits crosses many levels of biological organization, from single molecules to cells to perception and learning in the brain,,,," *******www.princeton.edu/~wbialek/wbialek.html Physicists Finding Perfection… in Biology — June 1st, 2009 by Biologic Staff Excerpt: "biological processes tend to be optimal in cases where this can be tested." *******biologicinstitute****/2009/06/01/physicists-finding-perfection-in-biology/

I then wrote that ‘‘for humans to achieve a mutation like this by chance, we would have to wait 100 million times 10 million years’’ (Behe 2007) (because that is the extrapolated time that it would take to produce 10^20 humans). Durrett and Schmidt (2008, p. 1507) retort that my number ‘‘is 5 million times larger than the calculation we have just given’’ using their model (which nonetheless "using their model" gives a prohibitively long waiting time of 216 million years).

"Charles Darwin said (paraphrase), 'If anyone could find anything that could not be had through a number of slight, successive, modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.' Well that condition has been met time and time again. Basically every gene, every protein fold. There is nothing of significance that we can show that can be had in a gradualist way. It's a mirage. None of it happens that way. - Doug Axe PhD. Experimental Evolution in Fruit Flies - October 2010 Excerpt: "This research really upends the dominant paradigm about how species evolve".,,, as stated in regards to the 35 year experimental failure to fixate a single beneficial mutation within fruit flies. *******www.arn****/blogs/index.php/literature/2010/10/07/experimental_evolution_in_fruit_flies Waiting Longer for Two Mutations - Michael J. Behe Excerpt: Citing malaria literature sources (White 2004) I had noted that the de novo appearance of chloroquine resistance in Plasmodium falciparum was an event of probability of 1 in 10^20. I then wrote that ‘‘for humans to achieve a mutation like this by chance, we would have to wait 100 million times 10 million years’’ (Behe 2007) (because that is the extrapolated time that it would take to produce 10^20 humans). Durrett and Schmidt (2008, p. 1507) retort that my number ‘‘is 5 million times larger than the calculation we have just given’’ using their model (which nonetheless "using their model" gives a prohibitively long waiting time of 216 million years). Their criticism compares apples to oranges. My figure of 10^20 is an empirical statistic from the literature; it is not, as their calculation is, a theoretical estimate from a population genetics model. *******www.discovery****/a/9461 Estimating the prevalence of protein sequences adopting functional enzyme folds: Doug Axe: Excerpt: Starting with a weakly functional sequence carrying this signature, clusters of ten side-chains within the fold are replaced randomly, within the boundaries of the signature, and tested for function. The prevalence of low-level function in four such experiments indicates that roughly one in 10^64 signature-consistent sequences forms a working domain. Combined with the estimated prevalence of plausible hydropathic patterns (for any fold) and of relevant folds for particular functions, this implies the overall prevalence of sequences performing a specific function by any domain-sized fold may be as low as 1 in 10^77, adding to the body of evidence that functional folds require highly extraordinary sequences. *******www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15321723 Evolution vs. Functional Proteins - Doug Axe - Video *******www.metacafe****/watch/4018222 Stephen Meyer - Functional Proteins And Information For Body Plans - video *******www.metacafe****/watch/4050681 This following video is a bit more clear for explaining exactly why mutations to the DNA do not control Body Plan morphogenesis, since the mutations are the ‘bottom rung of the ladder’ as far as the 'higher levels of the layered information’ of the cell are concerned: Stephen Meyer on Craig Venter, Complexity Of The Cell & Layered Information *******www.metacafe****/watch/4798685 "The evidence for the adaptive divergence of gene switches is still thin. The best case involves the loss of protective armor and spines in sticklebacks, both due to changes in regulatory elements. But these elements represent the loss of traits, rather than the origin of evolutionary novelties...We now know that Hox genes and other transcription factors have many roles besides inducing body pattern, and their overall function in development - let alone in evolution - remains murky." *******www.evolutionnews****/2010/06/scott_f_gilbert_developmental035931.html Here is a more thorough critique of evo-devo: Nature's "Gems": Microevolution Meets Microevolution - Casey Luskin - August 2010 *******www.evolutionnews****/2010/08/nature_gems_microevolution_mee037171.html#more Cortical Inheritance: The Crushing Critique Against Genetic Reductionism - Arthur Jones - video *******www.metacafe****/watch/4187488 Astonishingly, actual motors, which far surpass man-made motors in 'engineering parameters', are now being found inside 'simple cells'.

There are, I am sure, evolutionists who have described how the transitions in question could have occurred.” And he continues, “When I ask in which books I can find these discussions, however, I either get no answer or else some titles that, upon examination, do not, in fact, contain the promised accounts. That such accounts exist seems to be something that is widely known, but I have yet to encounter anyone who knows where they exist.” David Ray Griffin - retired professor of philosophy of religion and theology Poly-Functional Complexity equals Poly-Constrained Complexity *******docs.google****/Doc?docid=0AYmaSrBPNEmGZGM4ejY3d3pfMjdoZmd2emZncQ DNA - Evolution Vs.

Women who experience pain in their neck, shoulder, and back due to overly large breasts often seek the assistance of Dr. Carol Hollan. By performing breast reduction surgery, Dr. Hollan can help reduce the size of the breasts, as well as improve their shape to a more youthful appearance. In addition, women who struggle to wear certain fashions or find a bra that fits well often experience satisfactory results after breast reduction. During the breast reduction recovery period, patients may experience some pain but are given adequate medication. Oftentimes, pain medicines may only be needed for two to three days post-surgery. It is also recommended to refrain from exercise for approximately four weeks; however, patients may return to work in one week, depending on the extent of the procedure. To determine if you are an ideal breast reduction candidate, you can contact Dr. Hollan at her La Jolla, San Diego practice.

*******www.allsportslexington**** Be systematic on working on your muscles. Your muscles should be working harder over time. Repeating the same sets of exercises and same weight without getting your muscles to work harder will not give satisfactory results. You can record your daily results and make the progression based on your previous data. A daily log will also motivate you since you are able to track how far you have gone. It builds confidence since there is a written proof something that was successfully accomplished

But when it comes to figuring out the best way to explore information flow in cells, Tyers jokes that it is like comparing different degrees of infinity.
