Melanin Research Supports Creation Model

Fungi serve a purpose in the world by breaking down and essentially recycling dead things, but some types get a bit rambunctious and cause fungus infections. A recent study by researchers who reject standard Darwinian views inadvertently support creation science.

Research in melanin, protein, and Aspergillus fungi thwart Darwinism and inadvertently support creation science.

There are several hundred mold species in the Aspergillus genus. Some are useful in the environment, they can help in the fermentation process for alcohol, and others are used in medicinal products. The research under discussion is about the annoyance factor where they cause fungal infections.

A protein identifies fungal melanin, notifies cells and says, "There's a fungus among us", then they all laugh and go keep the interloper under control. This is an example of engineered adaptability. Darwinists generally believe that evolution and adaptation are caused by external influences, but we have been seeing that adaptations and responses are built in to organisms by the Master Engineer.
Fungal infections can be a pain to eradicate. But new results show why these infections can take an even tighter hold on people or animals that are missing a specific protein. The international research team that discovered this protein, and its importance, named it MelLec. This protein helps fight fungal infections by identifying a specific type of melanin that fungi make. Several aspects of this new discovery fit a creation-based model of creature adaptation.
