Intelligent Design - are you looking after your nanoscale molecular motors ?

Bacteria flagellum is tail like motor used to make Bacterial move through fluids.

Evolutionist say is a random biased walk in the fluid.... I would dare to say such

ignorance shows a lack of knowledge, indeed the motor is very complex, and the

bacteria knows when it wants to turn and move forward....

Here is a picture of the if you saw a nano-metre scale motor, that means the motor 20 millionths of a millimetre wide...The motor turns at 20,000rpm and can make the bacteria move per unit length of a bacteria about 4 times faster a petrol car can, with 80% efficiency compared to a motorcar's pathetic 10% efficiency. Notice the motor has bearings, bushings, casing, bolts of protein, and even a clutch mechanism for engaging the tail section of the rotor.

The tail is made of proteins like these, which travel down a 2 nano metre tube inside the tail, and build themselves on the end of the tube, making the tail grow up to 10,000 nano-metres in length.

The DNA code required for these protein units has to be very precise, and is not a random sequence of Amino Acids codes of AGTC, the four letter codes God used to code for every amino acid used in building structures. Just a single letter code mistake causes the tail structure not to work....

The protein unit for each tail has three sections, and is built from over a few thousand amino acids, the critical shape link is shown in this image. These units repeat up the tail 10,000 times making structure of the tail into a tube of 10 to 20 of these protein structures forming a ring.

During the clutch disengage, the rotor turns the rpm in the other direction, from clockwise to counter clockwise, so this causes a twist torque affect along the shaft of the tail...each protein unit changes shape with just 0.8 nano-metre change in torque twisting....the tail can make up to 14 tail shapes...

Here are four basic shaped to make one of 14 shapes the bacteria can time the twist to any time of turning one way stop disengage clutch, turn other way on the motor rotor, and engage the clutch again, forcing different pattern tail shapes....this causes differences in motor swimming of the bacteria and where it wants to go...

Now the regulation of the motor itself is also unbelievably complex, involving 4 protein enzyme reactions and free back make the motor cause movement when the Bacteria says so...I can assure you it's not a random biased walk...yet listening to the Evolutionists talk on their video they admit it a molecular machine....

Now I could bore you with the probability of making such a machine alone with proteins by random, such calculations are known....

A bacteria only lives for 20 minutes and dies, and there have only been 10 to the 64th power of seconds since the so called Big Bang, the probability of making a single 150 protein for the motor bushing by random would be around 10 to the power 75, larger than all the seconds since time ever began....and we have not started building the motor which hasover20to30 protein types, plus genes of code for regulation, and the 2,000amino acid sub unit protein for the tail, that must be precise to within 0.8 nano metres to work, that's the size of molecules....

Only an Intelligent Designer builds motors, and God has made a motor that far surpasses anything man has come up with....

Teach that to our Science children, our God is an awesome God....

Thanks Rob for the interesting article. Yes one would think that those stats should be enough to convince the evolutionists enough to give up their pathetic Ideas on evolution. But sadly they will not and so the controversy goes on.

Very interesting. What an amazing God. Fearful and Wonderful.

There are about 2,500 genes in Bacteria and 40 of those build the motor regulate it's function.

My question is, how does a bacteria make decisions, does it have a mind ? Or does to only respond to chemical stimuli based on chemical DNA gene feedback loops and regulation? We are assuming only 2,500 genes exist....A good C programmer codes code into making more code....

I suspect the 2,500 DNA genes we can see are only the beginning lowest ladder of DNA expression....

and soon they will discover that those genes open up new expressions of code within code, so the complexity of anything happening by random processes is ridiculous.

Some argue bacteria are simple...humans are complex....

Actually both are's just that if you have to create life in one cell, than the amount of DNA has to be reduced so each function has to be redesigned along different designs of thought, and thus different DNA coded information for this tiny living machine, which by the way is necessary to making us stay alive by living in us. 

Apparently when we eat plant foods the DNA of the plant enters out blood and makes protein regulations together with living nano-bot robots (bacteria) (which are required for life to be successful) thus all these DNA codes are required for complex code such as humans code is needed. I get the impression that several dozen plant DNA plus several dozen nano-bot DNA are all required to regulate human DNA so we live longer and we reach only 70years, but in Adam's time it was 900 years.

All my science school days of learning is wrong....when we eat food it does not break down to amino acids, sugars and fats....not all but most of it is passed unchanged into our blood stream....whole mRNA of plants and whole DNA of plants as well as whole DNA of bacteria , all necessary for life to process happily....

Indeed the array of our nutrition system of living is extremely complex....we are living machines and we should eat living foods....

So wonderful is bacterial motion, that in just a split second bacteria can move at 250Km/hr (relative to the length of a bacteria) in a split second, avoiding dangerous chemical's rapidly...wish we could do that on our highways...we would never have a car accident !


Many people (especially young people) view "science" as the greatest authority that there is. Even in this little community the voice of "science" carries a lot of weight... For many it is a "darling" idol, and an idol is really any substitute for God, isn't it?

Oh yes, evolution might be "turned on its head"; it might face "fundamental revisions" every few months, but while "science" can awe people with its achievements, its voice (for most people), is un-assailable. For the worldly-wise, I think the idea of evolution will stay very much alive, right up until the end.

Yes Stewart secularism-naturalism-evolutionism is a religion here to is the god of forces spoken about in Daniel 11 that arises different to any religion every gone before it...what Satan has done is to create new religion not based on gods in some nebulous utopia in the heaven's, but a form of pantheism where god is in the creation, rather than the Creator, thus we worship the natural processes of life, the survival of the fittest and only those naturally able to survive will. I often wondered what was so wrong with Kellogg's concept of pantheism but I tend to see it as the "god of nature" which we used to call Mother Nature (ie God's power revealed in Nature) they now worship Nature herself, and her Laws are eternal and thus capable of creating matter from nothing and by nothing.   They go on to say such theories of natural law allow for creation of universes all by themselves.

Before Daniel 11, people worshipped Creators in one form of another, some Intelligent Being, so to speak....

since the introduction of Daniel 11, people worship a god of forces, Mother Nature herself, and her natural laws that have always been.

The Hebrew words for God here are very important to identify "el" = strong authority "Elohim" = Heavenly powers

and "eloah" = father chief god.

Da 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god "el", and shall speak marvellous things against the God "el" of gods "el", and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
 37 Neither shall he regard the God "ELOHIM" of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
 38 But in his estate shall he honour the God "ELOAH"  of forces: and a god "ELOAH" whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
 39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god "ELOAH", whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

Here is an application translation (some from Stephen Bohr, most myself)

Da 11:36 And the POPE shall do according to his will; and the POPE shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every STRONG AUTHORITY", and shall speak marvellous things against the heavenly strong authorities of authority", and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
 37 Neither shall the Pope regard the heavenly Father of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any Father: for he shall magnify himself above all.
 38 But in his estate shall he honour the "Father-god  of forces": and a a heavenly Father" whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
 39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a "strange Father-god", whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain...

Now if you visit the Roman Catholic religion where they have a Father-god, they claim to believe in evolution and have dismissed Creationism as nonsense. This is a religion never before seen .....

It is an arm of Catholicism to take the unlearned away....the Mother Nature god of forces....


Does anybody watch videos by Don Patton ? He is really very good....


This is a picture from a website making predictions of mutations and how the simulation survives with them, ie so called good mutations verse bad mutations.... Most scientists now realize that mutations are too negative an affect for natural selection to select anything good from the affect.

For example the human body makes about 300 to 3,000 mutations, in a life time and this is why we decay, age and die....AN average 15 year old has over 3,000 mutations already...too many for natural selection to make a good chance of allowing the organism to pass on anything desirable...the result is mankind is becoming extinct...notice the picture predicted by science with mutations and the decline in population life expectancy since Adam's introduction into sinning and its decay.... exactly the same decay.....

Sorry science fiction mutations do not make better more improved information...only make tings worse...decay dying and thus death...


Yes Rob Quite right to my knowledge there has no been one mutation of any use for anything.

What I find amazing is the UV radiation is putting too many mutations inside of us killing our DNA too quickly....on top of that we breathe polluted air, chem trails...

we drink polluted water. flouride

we eat wrong salt sodium

we eat foods with GMO contamination

we eat flavours made from coal carcinogens

and we wonder why our life expectancy is going down....

I listened to a Court case ruling where flagellum was too complex for evolution, and the evolution lawyer came in and sat 20 books for evolution of flagellum on his desk and said , have you read these ?

They argue :-

Bacteria species have 4000 different types of A

And over 400 proteins types, B.C.D.E.F. etc

So some cells have ABD in them

some have process running JMAB

some might have ABXOP

and still other have ABRTHC

so what they say well it's just a little change from say


hang on a  minute, if I add F to a process already, that F has to be aligned in 3D space, packaged along new structures ABD in 3D space, so we need more information sequences to regulate this building process...not just the presence of proteins ABD and F will do it...

I get the impression science reads DNA code and that's it....where does the 3D development process information come from ? in the DNA somewhere else, and we have not discovered this yet ? or have we ? this is more critical in bodies of more than one does and organism know how to build blind in 3D from a single cell ?

Indeed how do organelles inside a single cell know where to place proteins inside a cell next to other proteins inside the cell to build motors etc ? Where is the DNA code for that ?


Yes Rob one wonders where all this will end up

When God created this world there was a shell of Ice around it up high as well the Air pressure was higher. That shell of Ice would have cut out some of these harmful radiations. And perhaps bringing other benefits to the creation. 

When they experiment with the mutation in Fruitflies they use Radioactive radiation to hurry things up but no bebeficial mutation has ever evolved.

As you point out there is little motors that creates the new strands of DNA, when there is a fault it does it best to correct it but does not always manage to do that.  33MB download to watch, 14minutes

Yes Elijah, the above movie clip is perhaps the best I have seen on the molecular

motor machinery of the cell, absolutely fascinating God's design of it all....

Imagine trying to co-ordinate molecules in bowl of water 30cms in do you get the right molecules to the right spot? Build tracks reaching the spot you wish to do you know the right spot is ready for cargo? Send a feedback signal down the track ...How do you know the signal is ready to send back the protein required ? Send down a control protein, and wait until it come back...then how do you know all other controls are ready in a total effort of co-ordination ? Wait until all tracks are tensed properly... etc etc

Do you get an idea of the complexity of it all...just like a modern well co-ordinated city, with roads, cars and control traffic lights....


Praise GOD for His wonderful Intelligent Design

Thanks Rob

A great video there Yes its just amazing how this has been set in Place by the Creator. One wonders how the Evolutionists explain how such a complex thing could evolve by itself.

You are probably familiar with the Idea of irreducible complex situation like a mouse trap. Where all the parts must be there in functioning form to be able to have a functioning mousetrap. If only one part was missing the mousetrap will not work.

Just how complex is that we just seen there in comparison with the Mousetrap.

The part with the Malaria virus was a wicked thing, I knew how the Virus work but seeing it in this video was horrific.

On that Note Happy Sabbath
