Throwback Thursday – Molecular Machines

Back in March of 2018 I did a six part series on the molecular machines we find in our bodies. I was reminded of this series during a recording for Monday’s podcast episode so I thought it would be a fun throwback so that you’re all prepared for me to totally geek out next week.


Well beloved brethren there seems to be no end to the amazing molecular machines within our bodies. We could continue this series for a year or more! Instead, I’m going to wrap this up with a recap on everything we’ve learned. Before I do that, I want to thank you all who prayed with me for my husband and the family who lost their baby. What a gift God has given to have an entire body of believers to go to for advice, encouragement, and prayer!

So in case you missed them here is a list of all the tiny robots working so hard to keep up alive.

Molecular Machines – ATP the energy for all cells, without which we would die, ATP is an amazing molecular machine in every single cell in our bodies.

Molecular Machines – Helicase a necessary machine for DNA replication, the Helicase is just as important as the ATP, and also resides in every cell.

Molecular Machines – Dynein the gear shifting motor, which helps move proteins and other needed nutrients and information, is one hard working machine.

Molecular Machines – Flagellum one of the worlds most known molecular machine, which propels things backward or forward, made of intricately designed pieces.

Molecular Machines – Myosins is a molecular machine that helps with muscle flexing, making in important for movement.

Molecular Machines – Clathrin the three legged protein that gathers together to build a basket like shape which moves information or nutrients inside or outside every cell, which is especially important in brain cells.

I hope this recap blesses you, if anyone missed a post. Stay tuned for the new series next Monday focusing on bringing God glory through creation science. Until tomorrow, dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

  1. Thanks, sister! I remember being amazed by the intricacy and preciseness of these molecular machines when you first published them and it was fun to review them again. It’s quite impossible to imagine these microscopic yet complex machines developing randomly on their own.
