A Lesson From The Jellyfish

Jellyfish Lives For Ever Would you like to live for ever? One of the hardest things to accept for those who don’t trust God or the Bible is the idea of eternal life, they say that it is impossible for the human body to live eternally, that we are not designed like that, however often times when presented with that reasoning the ones who do believe in creation realize the fact that even our cells constantly rejuvenate in our body, what scientists cannot comprehend or explain though is why at some point in our lives that process of constant cell rejuvenation suddenly stops leading us to our irreversible and eventual death.

Recently another discovery has proven that for a small sea creature the jellyfish that possibility is a reality; The jellyfish known as the Turritopsis Nutricula has the remarkable ability of ‘growing young’ after it mates…And it is able, at least theoretically, to mate  and then revert to its juvenile state an unlimited number of times, as a matter of fact scientists are actively studying this tiny creature to determine how exactly it goes around this.

They have come to the conclusion that the Jellyfish does this through a process called “transdifferentiation” in other words, when older cells are replaced with new ones, scientists believe this creature only dies when it is eaten or killed in the tropical waters off Florida where it is native.

So there you have it, God gave the Jellyfish eternal life, maybe we did also had it at some point but lost it, just as the bible says? you decide.

Water on Mars: Life Next?

Ice On MarsAccording to a press release by the news agency Reuters, Nasa scientists on Thursday said they have found what appears
to be definitive proof that water exists on Mars once they completed extensive tests on previously found ice last
June by the Phoenix Mars Lander.

Samples of ice were also seen melting away in pictures  taken by the lander’s instruments when Phoenix touched down in June.

According to the news report lead scientist William Boyton stated that: (and I quote) “We’ve seen evidence for this
water ice before in observations by the Mars Odyssey orbiter and in disappearing chunks observed by Phoenix last month,
but this is the first time Martian water has been touched and tasted,” he said, referring to the craft’s instruments.

Besides being quite interesting, this type of news makes me wonder about how little we know about the universe we live in. Could at some point life be found beyond the boundaries of our planet? what implications will this bring to religion and Christianity as we know it? Will suddenly discovered E.T. Life deny the existence of God itself?

Scientists reveal secret of levitation

Levitation Artist Rendering LONDON (AFP) – Scientists have discovered a ground-breaking way of levitating ultra small objects, which may revolutionize the design of micro-machines, a new report says.  Physicists said they can create “incredible levitation effects” by manipulating so-called Casimir force, which normally causes objects to stick together by quantum force.

The phenomenon could be used to improve the performances of everyday devices ranging from car airbags to computer chips, say Professor Ulf Leonhardt and Dr Thomas Philbin from Saint Andrews University.

Casimir force — discovered in 1948 and first measured in 1997 — can be seen in a gecko’s ability to stick to a surface with just one toe.  Now the British scientists say they can reverse the Casimir force to cause an object to repel rather than attract another in a vacuum.
