LAMININS
« on: May 26, 2008, 11:13:08 am »


A medical professional recently shared this email
with a friend in which there is a fascinating story about laminin.

Recently in a sermon,
Louie Giglio was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God is...
how He spoke the universe into being...
how He breathes stars out of His mouth that are huge raging balls of fire...etc. etc.
Then He went on to speak of how this
star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO knitted our human bodies together
with amazing detail and wonder.
At this point I am LOVING it
(fascinating from a medical standpoint, you know.)
...and I was remembering how I was constantly amazed during medical school
as I learned more and more about God's handiwork.
I remember so many times thinking...
'How can ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this???'

Louie went on to talk about how we can trust that the God who created all this,
also has the power to hold it all together when things seem to be falling apart...
how our loving Creator is also our sustainer.

And what absolutely stunned me was when Giglio started talking about laminin.  
I knew about laminin.  Here is how Wikipedia describes them
'Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding
of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue.'
You see....laminins are what hold us together ...LITERALLY.
They are cell adhesion molecules.
They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell.
Without them, we would literally fall apart. And I knew all this already.
But what I didn't know is what laminin LOOKED LIKE.
But now I do.  And I have thought about it a thousand times since (already)....
Here is what the structure of laminin looks like...
AND THIS IS NOT a 'Christian portrayal' of it....
if you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature,
this is what you will see...


Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!!!
index.php/fa/8951/0/
Amazing.  
The glue that holds us together....
ALL of us....
is in the shape of the cross.
Immediately Colossians 1:15-17 comes to mind.
'He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
For by him all things were created;
things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;
all things were created by him and for him.
He is before all things,
and in him all things HOLD TOGETHER.'


also interesting to me that the color scheme - even if coincidental

is red (blood/life), blue (faith) and green (new life) metaphysically designated to these colors i've learned from my studies.

So like, a DNA nucleotide is five-sided.
What do you read into that, Jimi?

This guy walks into the psychiatrist's office for his appointment.  The shrink says "I'd like to show you some inkblots and have you tell me what you see."  So the psychiatrist shows the first inkblot.

"Mr. Jones, what do you see?"

"I see two people having sex."

"What about this next one?"

"It's two people having sex."

"OK. And this one?"

"It's two people and they are having sex."

"Mr. Jones, you seem to be thinking an awful lot about sex."

"Well you're the one showing me the dirty pictures."

Silly Jimi, that's a duck.

For those that regard the Duck as a deity, I have
capitalised it in this sentence.

Good sense is, of all things among men, the most equally distributed; for everyone thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess.

A man walks into a psychiatrist's office, he's wearing nothing but several layers of Saran wrap.  "Doc", he says, "I think there might be something wrong with me."
"Well", says the doctor, "I can clearly see your nuts."

So your new duck god has changed your avatar and your name to Leto II?  Hmmmmmm... Sounds like a cult to me.

A man walks into a dentist's office and says, "I think I'm a moth." The dentist replies, "I'd like to help you, but shouldn't you be seeing a psychiatrist?" The man replies, "I am seeing a psychiatrist." The dentist says, "Well then what are you doing here?" The man says, "Your light was on."

Laminin is a molecule with flexible bonds, unlike for instance a molecule of H20, where the bond is always 105 degrees (or 109, I forget).  The molecular model is two dimensional to easily represent the bonds for scientists and kids in chemistry classes.  

index.php/fa/8978/0/

As you can see, under an electron microscope, the bonds can be found in any configuration.

It's a nice bit of imagery to make a point.

Now quit your bickering, or there'll be no recess and extra homework for the lot of you.

whatever.

the whole point is touchstones...whether real or not

have power to reaffirm consciousness awareness that

we are one with all men

all life

all living things

we are one with The One.

and again...it is a source of bliss for me and countless others.

and not really a joke to me.

Great. So if I look into the sky and think the clouds look like a kitty cat, I can think I have proof that God must be a kitty cat.
