Molecular Machines – Dynein

Have I mentioned that Monday’s have become my favorite day of the week, beloved? I absolutely adore researching Gods creative, intricate, design. Today I want to discuss a molecular motor that is very similar to the Kinesin we’ve previously discussed. The Dynein, a protein motor involved in muscle contraction, has one major piece that Kinesin is missing, gears!

The Dynein actually has shifting gears within it which control its speed. When the gear slows the Dyneins down they bunch close together, which allows a stronger pull force. This gear allows the Dynein to handle larger loads than the Kinesin, although it moves slower. Here is a short clip of this amazing machine in motion…

Isn’t that amazing, brethren? God, the God of the universe, Creator of all, condescended to become man. Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, lived a sinless life, paid a debt He didn’t owe because we owed a debt we couldn’t pay, rose from the grave on the third day, ascended to the throne, and is coming back! All the while, upholding the greatest of galaxies in all the universe, and the tiniest machines working in all the millions of cells in our body. What love is this, that while we were yet sinners He died for us? Wow! This truly is amazing grace! As always, dear friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

    1. That’s a good point, friend. He even explained that once something was discovered that was complex his theory would fall apart. For those who want to suppress the truth in unrighteousness facts don’t matter. They’ll follow evolutionism blindly because science doesn’t hold any moral standards.
