Cell Theory

Our biology song for the week is "Living Things." (This is not a "Christian" science program nor is it creationist.) The song teaches about the characteristics that make something alive (able to reproduce, move, grow, respond to a stimulus, carry on metabolic activity), the different levels of organization of life, and the different metabolic activities. The song also has the lines
Living things are made up of cells...
All cells come only from other living cells.
This is what's called the cell theory.

So Andrew asks, "What do the evolutionists think about the cell theory?" Well, the cell theory is one of the most basic theories of all biological science. You can't do ANYthing without its foundations. So of course evolutionists accept the cell theory.

But the cell theory says "all cells come only from other living cells."


So I did a little internet surfing. Surely NO scientist could deny the cell theory. Most websites just stated the cell theory as is; a few had the caveat that the cell theory has held solid "except for the first cell which originated from non-life." The website I found funny interesting was from Nature. It stated,
With the theory of evolution, the cell theory is the most important generalization in biology. There is, however, a missing link between these theories that prevents an even more general and unifying concept of life.

A missing link?
In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.
That's from John 1.
(And check out the verse preceding it too.)

Psalm 14: The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge?
