The September issue of Discover Magazine includes an article contains a remarkable admission of error by the modern scientific community. It appears in an article entitled “The Brain” by Carl Zimmer (see link below), and it admits that “Neuroscientists have a…mistake of their own, and it is a spectacular blunder.” The “spectacular blunder” involves how scientists have perceived the internal workings of the human brain.
Scientists have long thought that the numerous “glial cells” in the human brain were nothing more than a kind of organic “glue” which held the brain together. The article states the error and new discovery in three words: “Even though the brain contains about a trillion glia–10 times as many as there are neurons–the assumption was that those cells were nothing more than a passive support system. Today we know the name [“glial” cell after a Greek word for “glue”] could not be more wrong. Glia, in fact, are busy multitaskers, guiding the brain’s development and sustaining it throughout our lives.” The article adds concerning the glia cells that “…they speak in a chemical language of their own. Scientists do not yet understand that language(emphasis added).” The article further reveals that scientists now realize that there are three distinct kinds of glia cells, all of which are necessary to brain functioning. In a closing statement of unusual candor for a scientific article, it states “There is something marvelous in the fact that we barely understand what most of the cells in our brains are doing.” [Emphasis added.] This is quite a confession on the part of modern science. It is also another hammer blow to evolutionary theories, because this new development reveals the human brain is far more complex and intricately-designed than anyone previously realized. It also ends permanently any argument that glia cells in the brain were some kind of “vestigial” evolutionary tissue! For decades, modern scientists have been entirely wrong about glia cells in human brains. One can only hope they will someday realize that they have also been entirely wrong about the entire intellectual foolishness called the theory of evolution. When Darwin first proposed his anti-biblical theory, scientists lacked the technology to understand how infinitely-complex and marvelously-designed the human body (and the bodies of all other species as well) really are. As new technology revealed what Darwin never grasped, scientists should have discarded evolution as a joke.
Indescribable complexity comes from creative acts, not from random chance. Does anyone think that the most modern supercomputer (complete with all peripherals) along with the electrical power plant that supplies it energy to operate all just came into existence by random chance without any outside human intelligence acting upon these things to make them come into existence? Only a blithering fool would believe such a thing! However, the “evolution” of a supercomputer and and an electrical plant by random chance is infinitely easier to believe in than the evolution of humans or any other living species. Why? Because the “evolution” of a supercomputer and a power plant would still not involve any leap from non-living substances to living organisms. Modern science “strains at gnats and swallows camels.” It would mock anyone who was dumb enough to assert a supercomputer and an electrical power plant came into existence by random chance, but it blithely opines and teaches that human beings and living organisms (entities far more complex than a supercomputer or the “bricks and mortar” of a power plant) “evolved” by random chance.
Psalm 14:1 states: “The fool has said in his heart, There is no God,” Psalm 139:14 observes that human beings are “fearfully and wonderfully made (emphasis added).” No matter what evolutionary scientists come to understand about the human brain, they will never fully understand it because our minds are composed of far more than what is visible in our physical brains. Ecclesiastes 3:21, Zechariah 12:1, I Corinthians 2:11 and other scriptures state that each person has a God-given “spirit of man” that is meshed with our human brains to give us personalities, minds that comprehend eternity and abstract concepts and make moral (or immoral) decisions, etc. This “spirit in man” is invisible to human eyes, and cannot be discerned by any microscope or replicated by any human experiment. The “spirit in man” is what makes mankind not an animal, but a living being “made in the image and likeness of the Elohim” (Genesis 1:26). As long as science rejects the obvious reality that the God of the Bible created mankind (and everything else) after much design work and creative action, scientists will be “ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (II Timothy 3:7).
