Defending the Christian Worlview, Creationism, and Intelligent Design

This is my personal virtual library, where i collect information, which leads in my view to the Christian faith, creationism, and Intelligent Design as the best explanation of the origin of the physical Universe, life, and biodiversity

What distinguishes a cell a millisecond before its death, from a millisecond after it is dead ?

The immaterial ‘information’ disappears from our material bodies upon death of our material bodies. As Stephen Talbott explained, ” Virtually the same collection of molecules exists in the canine cells during the moments immediately before and after death. But after the fateful transition no one will any longer think of genes as being regulated, nor will anyone refer to normal or proper chromosome functioning. No molecules will be said to guide other molecules to specific targets, and no molecules will be carrying signals, which is just as well because there will be no structures recognizing signals. Code, information, and communication, in their biological sense, will have disappeared from the scientist’s vocabulary.
,,, the question, rather, is why things don’t fall completely apart — as they do, in fact, at the moment of death. What power holds off that moment — precisely for a lifetime, and not a moment longer? ”

Despite the countless processes going on in the cell, and despite the fact that each process might be expected to “go its own way” according to the myriad factors impinging on it from all directions, the actual result is quite different. Rather than becoming progressively disordered in their mutual relations (as indeed happens after death, when the whole dissolves into separate fragments), the processes hold together in a larger unity.

Since quantum information is conserved, and yet immaterial information disappears from our material bodies upon death of our material bodies, the question then becomes, “where does the quantum information/entanglement go upon death of the material body?” As Stuart Hameroff pointed out, “the quantum information,,, isn’t destroyed. It can’t be destroyed.,,, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body. Perhaps indefinitely as a soul.”,,,

As Stuart Hameroff further pointed out, it provides a mechanism to explain NDEs (NDEs which you brilliantly defended the validity of recently), i.e. “If a patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules and the patient says, “I had a near death experience. I saw a white light. I saw a tunnel. I saw my dead relatives.,,”

That Sev and MM, (our resident Darwinian dogmatist and whatever MM claims to be in the moment so as to avoid admitting to any Theistic implications),, would both oppose it ought to give you another solid clue that pervasive QM in biology provides strong evidence for a immaterial component to our being. A immaterial component, i..e. a ‘soul’, that is capable of living past the death of our material bodies.
