Are Bacteria, Which the Theory of Evolution Sees as Primitive, Really So?
Bacteria are tiny living things, one micrometer (a thousandth of a millimetre) long, and contain no structures but a cell membrane and a DNA strand. It may seem much simpler than other living things when their structures are compared. But this in no way means that bacteria are primitive forms of life. Inside these tiny cells very important bio-chemical events take place which enable life on Earth to continue. Bacteria play very important roles in the functioning of nature's ecological system in the world. For example, some bacteria species dismantle the remains of dead plants and animals, and turn them into basic chemical substances to be used by living organisms. Some increase the fertility of the soil. They also carry out functions such as turning milk into cheese, producing antibiotics against harmful bacteria, and synthesising vitamins.
These are only a few of the countless tasks carried out by bacteria. Although the cells of the bacteria which carry all this out appear simple, when they are examined it is seen that they are not so at all. A bacterium has about 2,000 genes. Each gene has about 1000 letters (links) in it. So the bacterium's DNA must be at least 2 million letters in length. What does this mean? According to this calculation, the information in the DNA of one bacterium is equivalent to 20 average novels, each of 100,000 words.64
Any change in the information in the DNA code of a bacterium would be so deleterious as to ruin the bacterium's entire working system. As we have seen, a fault in the bacteria's genetic code, means that the working system would go wrong. In other words, that the bacteria could not live, and could not survive down the generations. As a result, a very important link in the ecological chain of balances would break and all the balances in the world of living things would be turned upside down. When all these complex features are borne in mind, it is obvious that bacteria are not primitive cells as the theory of evolution claims. Furthermore, the evolution of bacteria into plant and animal cells (eukaryotic cells), as in the evolutionists' claim, is something which breaks every kind of biological, physical, and chemical law. Although they are fully aware of this impossibility, defenders of the theory of evolution will not give up defending this theory, which they invented out of their own hopelessness. Even so, they sometimes cannot resist talking about the theory's invalidity. For example, the famous Turkish evolutionist Professor Ali Demirsoy admits that bacterial cells, which are claimed to be primitive, cannot turn into eukaryotic cells:
One of the most difficult stages to be explained in evolution is to scientifically explain how organelled and complex cells developed from these primitive creatures. No transitional form has been found between these two forms. One and multi-celled creatures carry all this complicated structure, and no creature or group has yet been found with organelles of a simpler construction in any way, or which are more primitive. In other words, the organelles carried forward are developed by all means. They have no simple and primitive forms
