Immune systems fight more than viruses and bacteria
Did you know even plants and animals have immune systems? They do. And their immune systems work like ours. They’re able to spot an nasty invader like a virus or bacteria and immediately build up defenses against it. And they can even remember details about the attack so they function even faster next time. But imagine if each of those plants and animals would’ve had to wait for evolution to “create” those immune functions.
What would happen to you and your household if you had no defense against invaders? Or if you had only started building your defense strategies when you were attacked? Yeah, you’d probably be destroyed. And the same could be said of the first animals and plants…if they were depending on evolution to form them.
Immune systems have to be preprogrammed.
If those first animals and plants hadn’t already had immune systems in them, they would have been destroyed by the first bacteria, toxin, or virus that came along. And it would have been pretty difficult to build up any other beneficial genetic changes if they were dead, don’t you think? There’s just too much complex genetic information in immune systems for them to have formed slowly, over time, depending on evolutionary changes. It’s just crazy talk (and blind faith in unobservable processes) to think otherwise.
It should be blatantly obvious that in order for species to survive the onslaught of infections their immune systems would have to be in place from the beginning. As I’ve looked at information like that, over the course of my life, I’ve always been thankful and grateful to God for creating the way He did. It makes perfect sense how a living, loving sovereign Creator could build a universe, planets, and stars…and then build creatures who could live and interact.
But it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to believe everything could have come from nothing. Maybe it’s just my immune system putting up defenses against such nonsense. And if it is, thank God it’s working.
