Quoth the Hippo


"Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering."
Saint Augustine of Hippo

Remember Laminin?
Really. Honestly. It's beautiful.



Laminin is my favorite cell adhesion molecule. Hands down

Hi Dave...you're right, as far as cell adhesion molecules go, laminin is pretty sweet. As far as evidence for a creator however....well, some people take this laminin business pretty seriously, and other people just think it's cool, but either way let me just leave you with a couple links as food for thought. Enjoy :)

Yeah... I'm in the "that's just cool" department. I don't know if that Colosians is SPECIFICALLY referring to it. Matters not to me.

I just think it's a very neat thought when you think about how big creation is... that something in the shape of the cross is holding us together.

I like it in the metaphorical sense.

From one of the sites mentioned above here is an unfair assessment of the video.

"The main problem with this type of argument is that it appears that something outside of Scripture (in this case, laminin) is vital to know the truthfulness of a biblical truth. Laminin is used to prove a biblical truth."


This statement is a little over the top ...
I don't agree that Mr Giglio was doing any such thing ... he was just sharing the discovery of something very interesting in a time when we do note this particular symbol as the cross of Jesus Christ.

Good timing ... and really cool

I'd like to hear what the molecular biologist had to say who turned him on to this.

Thanks for posting this.

It is very uplifting and exciting.

As far as evidence of a creator we just need to open our eyes and look around us ... this place is filled with the beauty of an artist far beyond our grasp.

We simply copy or discover what God has already created.

Thanks for posting this :-)
