Intelligent Weapons: The Antibodies
Antibodies are protein-structured weapons,
which are manufactured to fight against the foreign cells entering
the human body. These weapons are produced by the B cells, a class
of warriors of the immune system.
Antibodies destroy invaders. They have two main
functions: The first is to bind to the invader cell, which is the
antigen. The second is to decompose the biological structure of
the antigen and destroy it.
Swimming in the blood and non-cellular fluid, antibodies
bind to disease-causing bacteria and viruses. They mark the foreign
molecules to which they bind, so that the body's fighter cells can
distinguish them. This way, they also inactivate them. This resembles
a tank becoming useless and unable to move or fire shells when it
is hit by a guided missile in the battleground. An antibody fits
the enemy (antigen) perfectly, just like a key and a lock assembling
in a three-dimensional structure.
The human body can produce a compatible antibody
for almost every enemy it encounters. Antibodies are not of one
type only. According to the structure of every enemy, a specific
antibody powerful enough to deal with it is produced. This is because
an antibody produced for one disease may not be effective on another.
Manufacturing a specific antibody for each enemy
is rather an unusual process, which deserves closer attention. This
process can be realized only if the B cells know their enemies and
their structures very well. There are, however, millions of enemies
(antigens) in nature.
This is like manufacturing a compatible key for
each of millions of locks straight away. What is important is that
the manufacturing agent does this without examining the lock or
using any mould. It knows the formula by heart.
It is quite difficult for a human being to memorize
the shape of even a single key. So, is it possible for a person
to keep in mind the three-dimensional designs of millions of keys
that are to open millions of locks?
Definitely not. However, a B cell so small as to
be imperceptible by the eye keeps millions of bits of information
in its memory, and uses them in correct combinations in a conscious
The storage of millions of formulae in a miniscule
cell is a great miracle presented to man. No less miraculous is
the cell's using this information to protect man's health.
It is obvious that the secret of the tremendous
success of these tiny cells is beyond the boundaries of human's
comprehension. Today, the power of the human mind even combined
with advanced technology pales into insignificance in the face of
the intelligence displayed by these cells. In fact, even evolutionist
scientists cannot close their eyes to all these signs of intelligence,
which are clear evidence of the existence of a conscious Creator.
One of the greatest advocators of evolution in Turkey, Prof. Dr.
Ali Demirsoy, confessed this in his book "Inheritance and Evolution":
How and in what form
did plasma cells obtain this information, and produce the antibody
exclusively designed according to it? This question has not been
answered precisely so far.3
As confessed by the evolutionist scientist above,
how antibodies are produced is a point that has not been clearly understood
as yet. The technology of the 20th century has proved insufficient
even at the level of understanding the methods of this perfect production.
In the years to come, as the methods used by these tiny cells - which
are created to serve mankind - and how they implement them are unraveled,
the perfection and artistry in the creation of these cells will be
We have previously stated that antibodies are a type
of protein. So, let us first examine the structure of proteins.
The Structure of Antibodies
Proteins are made up of amino acids. Twenty different
types of amino acids are arranged in different sequences to form
different proteins. This is similar to making different necklaces
by using beads in twenty different colours. The main differences
among proteins are due to the sequence of these amino acids.
Yet there is an important point to remember: Any
error in the amino acid sequence makes the protein useless, and
even harmful. Therefore, there is no room for even the smallest
error in the sequence.
So, how do the protein factories in the cell know in which sequence
to arrange the amino acids they contain, and which protein to produce?
The instructions for each of the thousands of different types of
proteins are encoded in the genes found in the genetic data bank
in the cell nucleus.
Therefore, these genes are required for the production
of the antibodies which are a type of protein.
There is a very important miracle here. There are
only one hundred thousand genes in the human body compared to the
1.920.000 antibodies that are produced. This means that nine hundred
thousand genes are missing.
Then how is it ever possible that such a small
number of genes can produce antibodies about ten times their value?
The miracle is revealed at this point. The cell combines the hundred
thousand genes it contains in different combinations to form new
antibodies. It receives the information from some genes and combines
it with the information in other genes and makes the required production
according to this combined information.
1,920,000 different antibodies
are formed as a result of 5,200 different combinations.4
This process represents a wisdom and planning that are too great
for the human mind to comprehend, let alone design.
An unlimited number of combinations can be made
with the use of one hundred thousand genes. The cell, however, uses,
with great intelligence, only 5,200 basic combinations and produces
1,920,000 specific antibodies. How has the cell learned to make
the right combinations out of these unlimited possibilities to form
the required antibodies?
Making the correct combinations
out of an infinite number of possibilities aside, how has the
cell got this idea of making combinations?
Moreover, the produced combinations serve a certain
purpose, and aim to produce an antibody that would eliminate the
antigen that enters the body. Therefore, the cell also knows the
properties of the millions of antigens entering the body.
No intellect in this world can produce a design
of such unparalleled perfection. But cells only the size of a hundredth
of a millimeter can do so.
So, how has the cell learned such a special system?
The truth is that no cell has the opportunity to
"learn" a biological function in the real sense. This is because
the cell does not possess the ability to perform such an act at
birth, nor has it the chance to develop the required skill during
the rest of its lifetime. In such cases, it is a prerequisite that
the system in the cell should be ready and complete at the beginning
of life. The cell neither possesses the skill to learn such combinations,
nor does it have the time to learn them, as this would cause it
to fail in stopping the antigens entering the body and the body
would lose the war.
The fact that a system that baffles mankind, even
at the point of comprehending it, has been placed in a cell which
has no ability to think and reason, has a very special meaning.
This is the reflection of the uniqueness of the creation of Allah,
the All-Knowing, in a tiny cell. In the Qur'an, it is stated that
Allah's superior wisdom encompasses everything:
...They cannot grasp any of His knowledge
save what He wills. His Footstool encompasses the heavens and the
earth and their preservation does not tire Him. He is the Most High,
the Magnificent. (Surat al-Baqara: 255)
If you were to design an antibody molecule, how
would you do it? You would first have to carry out comprehensive
research before deciding on the shape of the molecule. Surely you
could not shape it randomly without an exact knowledge of its duty.
Since the antibodies you are going to produce will make contact
with antigens, you would have to be very well informed about the
structure and specifications of the antigen, too.
Eventually, the antibody you will produce has to
have a special and unique shape at one end. Only then can it bind
to an antigen. The other end of it has to be similar to other antibodies.
This is the only way the antigen destructing mechanism can be activated.
As a result, one end has to be standard, while the other has to
be different from the others (which come in more than one million
Human beings, however, have been unable to design
an antibody, despite all the technology at their disposal. The antibodies
produced in the laboratory environment are either derived from antibody
samples taken from the human body, or the bodies of other living
We earlier stated that antibodies are a type of protein.
These proteins, functioning in the defence of the body within the
immune operation, are called "immune globulin" (a type of protein)
and designated as "Ig".
The most characteristic proteins of the defence
system, the immune globulin molecules bind to the antigens to inform
other immune cells of the existence of the antigen or to start the
destructive chain reactions of the war.
IgG (Immune Globulin G): IgG
is the most common antibody. Its development takes only a few days,
while its life span ranges from a few weeks to several years. IgGs
circulate in the body and are mainly present in the blood, lymphatic
system, and intestine. They circulate in the bloodstream, directly
target the invader, and latch on to it as soon as they detect it.
They have a strong antibacterial and antigen-destroying effect.
They protect the body against bacteria and viruses, and neutralize
the acidic property of toxins (poisons).
Additionally, the IgG may squeeze itself between
cells, and eliminate the bacteria and micro-organic invaders that
have infiltrated to the cells and the skin. Due their above-mentioned
ability and small size, they can enter the placenta of a pregnant
woman and protect an undefended foetus against possible infections.
If antibodies were not created with this characteristic
which permits them to penetrate the placenta, the unborn child in
the mother's womb would be unprotected against microbes. It would
be under the threat of death even before it was born. For this reason,
the antibodies of the mother protect the embryo against the enemies
until the time of birth.
IgA (Immune Globulin A):
These antibodies are present in sensitive regions where the
body fights with antigens such as in tears, saliva, mother's milk,
blood, air sacs, mucus, gastric and intestinal secretions. The sensitivity
of those regions relates directly to the tendency of bacteria and
viruses to prefer such damp mediums.
IgAs, which are structurally quite similar to each
other, settle in those regions of the body where microbes are most
likely to enter, and they keep this area under control. This is
like placing reliable soldiers on guard at strategically critical
The antibodies, which protect the foetus from various
diseases in the mother's womb, do not abandon the newborn following
their birth, but continue to guard them. All newborn babies do need
ongoing assistance from the mother, because there are no IgAs in
the organism of a newborn baby. During this period, the IgAs present
in the milk the baby sucks from its mother protect the baby's digestive
system from the effect of many microbes. Just like IgGs, this antibody
class also disappears after they have fulfilled their term of service,
when the baby is a few weeks old.
Have you ever wondered who sends you these antibodies
that try to protect you from microbes, when you are in the form
of an embryo and unaware of anything? Is it your mother or your
father? Or is it that they have taken a common decision and sent
you these antibodies together? Certainly, the help in question is
out of the control of both parents. The mother is not even aware
that she has been endowed with such an aid plan. The father is just
as unaware of all that is going on.
Then why do the cells present in the mother's breast
and productive of these antibodies function in such a way? Which
power has told these cells that the newborn needs antibodies? It
is by no means a coincidence that the cells engaging in antibody
production for the baby are located in the place where the newborns
Here, there is another very important miracle.
Antibodies are protein-structured organisms. Proteins, on the other
hand, are digested in the human stomach. Therefore, normally, the
baby suckling milk from its mother would digest these antibodies
in its stomach, and would become unprotected against microbes. The
stomach of the newborn baby, however, is created in such a way that
it does not digest and destroy these antibodies. The production
of protein-digesting enzymes is very little at this stage. Therefore,
antibodies vital for life are not digested and they protect the
newborn baby from its enemies.
The miracle does not end here. The antibodies,
which are not broken down by the stomach, can, however, be absorbed
by the intestine as a whole. The intestinal cells of the newborn
are created in such a way as to do so.
Unquestionably, it is no coincidence that these
miraculous events are arranged in such a sequence. The human body,
a meticulously planned example of creation, passes from the embryonic
stage to having a fully functional immune system in a perfectly
phased manner. This is because the events that are supposed to take
place in the body every day, every hour and every minute, are computed
in an extremely finely-tuned manner. Certainly, the author of this
precise calculation is Allah, Who creates everything according to
a very intricate plan.
IgM (Immune globulin M):
These antibodies are present in the blood, lymph and on the
surface of the B cells. When the human organism encounters an antigen,
IgM is the first antibody that is produced in the body in response
to this enemy.
An unborn child can produce IgMs in the sixth month
of gestation. If an enemy ever attacks the baby in the mother's
womb, for example, if it infects it with a microbial disease, the
baby's IgM production will increase. In order to determine whether
the foetus has been infected with a disease or not, the IgM level
in its blood is measured.
IgD (Immune globulin D):
IgDs are also present in the blood, lymph, and on the surface of
B cells. They are not capable of acting independently. By attaching
themselves to the surfaces of T cells, they help them capture antigens.
IgE (Immune globulin E):
IgEs are antibodies circulating in the bloodstream. These antibodies,
which are responsible for calling fighter and some other blood cells
to war, also cause some allergic reactions in the body. For this
reason, the level of IgE is high in allergic bodies.
First, let us review the information we have examined
Evolutionists' Attempts to Cover Up The Evidence of Creation
- Antibodies latch on to antigens (enemies) entering
- A different type of antibody is produced for
- The cell is able to produce thousands of different
antibodies for thousands of different antigens.
- This production starts as soon as the enemy enters
the body and is identified.
- There is full harmony between the antigen and
the three dimensional antibody, which is produced for that specific
antigen, just as a key exactly fits a lock.
- The cell, when required, arranges the information
it possesses in a conscious way and produces different antibodies.
- While doing all this, it displays wisdom and
planning far beyond the boundaries of the human mind's comprehension.
- Certain antibodies, which are specially placed
in the mother's milk, meet the antibody need of a baby, which is
as yet unable to produce these antibodies.
- The baby's stomach does not digest the antibodies,
but spares them so that they serve the baby's body.
Here we see a perfectly working system in place.
Inside the cells that produce the antibodies, Allah placed information
containing the construction plans of these antibodies that would
fill thousands of encyclopaedia pages. Furthermore, He has given
these unconscious cells the ability to make combinations, such as
are beyond the reach of the human mind.
How do people who blindly believe in evolution
explain the existence of such a perfect system? The answer is very
simple: they cannot.
The only thing they do is put forward illogical
assumptions which strongly self-contradict. There are many imaginary
scenarios without any scientific validity that are solely directed
towards finding an answer to the question of "How can we explain
this system in terms of evolution?".
The most popular of these scenarios maintains that
the immune system evolved from a single antibody. Here is the summary
of this scenario which has no scientific basis:
Initially the defence system comprised of a single
gene that produced a single type of immunoglobulin (a kind of protein).
But this gene "rapidly created copies of itself (!)" and developed
these copies so that they formed a different molecule of immunoglobulin.
Then the control mechanisms developed that monitor the manufacturing
of different genes which possess the ability to re-combine".
This example is important in seeing how shaky are
the grounds the theory of evolution is built on, and in understanding
the brainwashing and window-dressing methods evolutionists frequently
have recourse to. Now let us examine this deceit sentence by sentence:
Sentence 1: "Initially
the defence system comprised of a single gene that produced a single
type of immunoglobulin (a kind of protein)."
The first question that must be asked is:
"By whom was this inaugural gene created?"
Evolutionists try to present this stage as an insignificant
detail and circumvent it. However, how this initial gene has originated
must be explained. It is scientifically impossible for a gene to
have formed by itself. The impossibility of the coincidental formation
of the gene sequence is a fact which has been admitted by evolutionist
scientists many times. We can give an example from Prof. Ali Demirsoy,
a Turkish evolutionist, on this subject.
That is, if life requires a certain
sequence, it can be said that this has a probability likely to be
realised once in the whole universe. Otherwise some metaphysical
powers beyond our definition must have acted in its formation.5
Yet evolutionists cover up this point and make
a senseless presupposition such as "whatever the argument, there
surely was a gene at the beginning." As is quite evident, the scenario
collapses right at the first step.
Sentence 2: "But
this gene "rapidly created copies of itself (!)" and developed these
copies so that they formed a different molecule of immunoglobulin."
Though impossible, let us suppose that there was
a gene at the beginning. Though it is utterly impossible for this
first gene to have formed by itself, evolutionists make statements,
lacking any logical basis such as "it created copies of itself."
Such statements, which have no scientific value, constitute a good
example of the window-dressing style of the evolutionists. A hypothesis
assuming that a gene created and developed different copies of itself
complies neither with the rules of logic nor with scientific facts.
Moreover, the antibodies produced by such an imaginary
gene, which has supposedly formed by itself, and its copies, have
to possess such properties and structure as will stop the antigens
coming from the external world. This means that the same Creator,
that is, Allah created both antigens and the genes that are responsible
for producing antibodies for antigens.
Sentence 3: "Then
the control mechanisms developed that manage the manufacturing of
different genes which possess the ability to re-combine.
Unable to explain even the working principles of
these control and combination mechanisms, evolutionists evade the
issue by saying that "this system brought itself into being" whenever
it serves their purpose. They do not attempt to describe how such
an incredible system developed by itself as a result of coincidences.
When they try to bring some explanations of their own to these issues,
they cannot put forward anything but fabricated and ridiculous scenarios.
By doing so, they expose their weakness, and the unreasonableness
of the claim they make.
So great is the wisdom displayed in these control
mechanisms that approximately two million differently structured
products are fabricated from thousands of combinations of units
of information. Yet, as mentioned before, neither the cell, nor
any system within the cell has the ability to "learn" and "develop".
Moreover, the cell makes these information combinations by selecting
only the right ones out of infinite possibilities. Therefore, this
requires a much more conscious and reasonable selecting. mechanism.
Those who make such a claim may well advance the
following theories for any given product that is manufactured by
technology or the human mind:
"Stone tablets created themselves and later developed
into computers on their own.". Or,
"Kites that have created themselves later developed into jet planes."
The above sentences would sound absolutely absurd
to any national person. However, even these sentences are much more
logical than saying that the elements of the defence system, the
working principles of which have not even been discovered, emerged
What is more, the presence of antibodies alone
is not sufficient to protect the human body. For the defence system
to operate, and for the human being to survive, macrophages, helper
T cells, killer T cells, suppressor T cells, memory cells, B cells
and many other factors must work in cooperation.
