We Are Bound Together

I found this to be interesting.
This is a picture of a protein called - Laminin.
Laminins bind our cells together
and why is it surprising that they come in a shape of a cross?

Laminins are cell adhesion molecules that hold us together.
If we did not have them, we would fall apart .

Just think how many laminins or shape like crosses, we have inside all of us,
and how science finds similar shapes in common elements created naturally or by some
mistake. or accident.

Christians got excited about finding Laminins in people because of the King James Version of the Bible.
Colossians 1:15-17 states:

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

This, for them, further confirms that man was made in God's image and it made it more so believable that the birth of Jesus and the path his life took, to be knowingly and obligingly, crucified on a cross, was pre ordained.

If a person believes in symbolism, then it all makes sense, to find - Laminins in man, crosses, elements, Christianity, the Bible and God - all related.

What are the chances that Laminins end up looking like crosses?
Why not circles or squiggles or triangles or some other polygon?

I found this to be quite intriguing, especially on such a blah day we are having today, so thought I would share.

First, sorry that you're having a blah day. I haven't had one of those in quite sometime. It's gorgeous here and I had a wonderful day in Bible Study. I'm praying that tomorrow will prove to be awesome for you!

Secondly, I love the post. Very interesting and something that I'm sure I wouldn't have known had I not met you.

That's why I'm so happy that God made us one of a kind, because I love that you show me things that I would not normally know and I appreciate that in friendships.

Love and hugs

I am glad you liked the post China.
It is cold and wet all day today.
Even the dogs are not moving. They peak outside and say ...nah...I'll pass lol
Our cat Precious went out and began shrieking at the neighbors cat who came on our porch but she did not want to come in when I opened the door.She followed the other cat out into the rain.She loved our Tatty but since he is gone now, she is lonely. Maybe she is warming up to this guy now. She never liked him before but he's persistent. Precious is a typical Leave me alone type of cat. I never had many of those so I never believed they existed but now I

Never heard of Laminin but if you say so. What would be the laminins shape for buddhists and muslims ? would they fall apart ? lol !

Cold wet and windy here today - a good excuse for a blogwalk.

There are so many wonderful things to discover, I like this idea.

lol Gattina - my point exactly lol
As far as I know, there is no such thing as blue blood. When you cut yourself you always bleed red.Laminins are as close to one, as we will ever get. If they melted, as glue can, we would turn into
The Jews are still waiting for their messiah.In the meantime they are busy creating and building and this is good.Muslims are only busy fighting because they can't get past their quran. They fear this book, which is why it has become a world symbol of evil.
Muslims believe in a world veil, so people are one. And like history has already portrayed with other empire builders, there can never be one.If God wanted there to be only one, he would not have created man and especially not two sexes which now makes this a triad.
If you look at all the petty things men are dying over, it is really sad.We have so little time in the scheme of things, to enjoy peace and love. Those are good feelings.They say the world is purgatory but it doesn't mean we have to keep it that way.Man is basically good.We need to learn more humbleness, politeness and respect and this is what the bible teaches.So not to teach it in school, is not correct because now kids grow up angry.
We went into the Muslim world for Bin Laden, not to get involved with sunnis and shiites. That's their own problem.
So we should find him and go home.
Obama should state simply what we want and not send a message America is Muslim lol and He, a new khomeini. His behavior in the intl world is seen to be as such.
Wrong message to send and Muslims are not buying it.If he was the new khomeini, he would give them Israel.Israel is not his to give.It belongs to the world and the jews are just keeping it for lack of a better place to go.Palestinians are under the Muslim veil, so they have better places to go. See how simple it all is?
