Biological Evolutionary Puzzles Intelligent Design


Ribosomes are highly complex macro-molecular “garage” cellular structures which house the machinery to effectively manufacture protein chains from amino acids by reading the blueprints of DNA. This amazing structure does this function across all species from bacteria to eukaryotes. Clearly ribosomes are “ingeniously designed” for their vital functions in the cell.

The ribosome is a multi-part machine responsible for translating the genetic instructions during the assembly of proteins.

Proteins are the components of all living structures. Proteins are only made within living cells within ribosomes. Ribosomes, responsible for protein chain assembly, are hallmarks of intelligent design and represent irreducible complexity which causes Darwinian evolution to break down.

According to Craig Venter, a widely respected biologist, the ribosome is “an incredibly beautiful complex entity”.

Bacterial cells may contain up to 100,000 ribosomes, and human cells may contain millions.

Ribosomes are highly complex, macromolecular structures that fulfil the vital role of protein synthesis in all living cells across species, from bacteria to eukaryotes.

Biologist Ada Yonath, who won the Nobel Prize for her work on ribosomes, observes that they are “ingeniously designed for their functions.”

They consist of subunits that fit together and work as one to translate mRNA (messenger RNA) into a polypeptide chain during protein synthesis (translation).
