Combat Ready — On the Inside!

It's a war zone. No, not a military campaign. This war is going on inside you on the microscopic level. Your immune system identifies threats and discerns how to deal with an intruder (or just ignore it), and the system replaces its working parts, has search and destroy missions, passive barriers, and much more.

The war zone inside you is maintained by efficient soldiers. Evolutionary thinking hindered understanding of the immune system, which our Creator put in place.

Advocates of molecules-to-Marine evolution have hindered the understanding of biology. We have two lines of defense, and the first line was pretty much ignored as something inherited by our alleged evolutionary forebears. The second line of defense got most of the attention because they assumed it evolved (without anything other than "evolution did it"). A lot of information was undiscovered, and now scientists are realizing that our systems are far more efficient and intricate than previously realized, and there's a great deal more to learn. Our Creator put these things in place for a purpose.

The following informative article by Dr. Joseph Francis has a very interesting narrative. In addition, there is a creation science take on things.
Safety and security in the twenty-first century is more complicated than ever. In a terrifying new world of terrorism and cyber war, the threats are not just on the battlefield or countered with soldiers and guns. It’s often hard to separate foe from friend.

Our body experiences similar but vastly more complex challenges every day. And it has done so ever since Adam fell into sin approximately six thousand years ago. We may be impressed by the latest developments in counterterrorism, counterinsurgency, and counterespionage, promoted by Homeland Security and Cyber Command. But they don’t begin to match the know-how of the human body, which God designed to help us, even in the challenging world since the Fall.

These systems are up and running minute by minute, 24 hours a day, surveying our bodies for foreign invaders and following a series of pre-thought-out plans to protect us from ever-changing, life-threatening infections. We don’t have to supervise them—or even understand how they work—for them to be effective. Even with our latest technology, we’re still trying to unravel the secrets of this incredibly designed system that should be a constant reminder of God’s mercy.
