Who Manages Heavy Traffic in the Cell?
The Golgi body, found in all cells, plays an important role in packaging newly synthesized proteins and differentiating and selecting between different types of protein.
The various proteins found in various sections of the cell are synthesized in another part of the cell called the endoplasmic reticulum, or ER. Minutes after the proteins are synthesized, they move quickly out of the ER and towards the Golgi body. There are many important reasons why they undergo various changes in the Golgi body after being made. For example, to some of them are attached carbohydrate groups, to others sulphate or phosphate groups, and to still others, fatty acids. These modifications vary according to a protein's type and where it is to wind up. The Golgi body purifies these proteins and separates and packages them, according to their type and destination. It also produces the packages according to the type of cell where the proteins are destined to go. In order for the biochemical activity of the thousands of proteins synthesized in the ER not to become mixed up, however, these processes must be carried out with great sensitivity, and each protein must be directed towards its destination.
The tiny organelle known as the Golgi body organizes this traffic. It displays great awareness in every process it carries out. It recognizes the proteins that come to it, separates them, determines their needs, carries out its production according to their needs, identifies their function, packages them, and organizes this traffic flow without any confusion. The One Who inspired the cell and the organelles within it, with the ability to decide and apply the knowledge is the Lord of the worlds—that is, God.
Those who find themselves awestruck in the face of these cellular miracles and who witness God's superior knowledge can only be shocked at the evolutionists' claims that all this came to be as a result of coincidence.
The cell's organization is much more complex and successful than any human fabrication. In a protein produced in the cell, steps take place that are involved in the manufacture of products in a factory and their subsequent delivery to where they're needed.
He created the heavens and the Earth with truth and formed you, giving you the best of forms. And He is your final destination. (Qur'an, 64: 3)
