Could an outboard propeller motor come into existence, assemble, and activate itself?
According to what we know of Probability Theory, and even just our common sense, the answer is a resounding "NO!".
Now enter the design nightmare of any rational atheist or naturalist: the ATP Synthase. The ATP Synthase is the smallest Molecular Machine that we know of, and is very properly called a molecular motor, since it possesses many of the same mechanical parts and engineering.
The ATP Synthase operates within each Mitochondria, the power cell for each of your 30 trillion cells. Within each Mitochondria, hundreds upon hundreds of elegantly and efficiently designed ATP Synthases operate with breathtaking efficiency and relentless determination to keep you alive on a daily basis. They produce Adenosine Tri-Phophate (ATP) which your body uses up to it's own weight in, every day of your life. Cyanide poison is fatal instantly, precisely because it blocks the production of ATP for your body.
Without this nano-technological marvel of engineering and design, you would not be alive to read this information, and watch this video. This, of course, raises some obvious scientific questions:
1. WHAT IS THE NATURALISTIC EXPLANATION
FOR A STEP-BY-STEP EVOLVING OF SUCH A MARVELOUS MOLECULAR MACHINE?
2. WHERE DID THE SPECIFIED INFORMATION COME FROM
ON THE DNA MOLECULE THAT WAS THE BLUEPRINT FOR THE ATP SYNTHASE?
3. ARE WE TO BELIEVE THAT OUTBOARD MOTORS HAVE INTELLIGENT PERSONAL DESIGNERS, BUT NOT APPLY THE SAME SCIENTIFIC/LOGICAL REASONING TO THE ATP SYNTHASE
, WHICH IS A MILLION TIMES SMALLER AND THOUSANDS OF TIMES MORE EFFICIENT.
I propose that to believe such a marvel of elegant and efficient engineering arose randomly, and by chance, is not only THE HEIGHT OF UNSCIENTIFIC REASONING, but also VIOLATES RATIONAL AND LOGICAL REASONING as well.
I simply don't have enough faith to be an Atheist or Naturalist. Not in the light of the ATP Synthase, and other Molecular Machines.
