Evolutionary Fantasies and Circadian Rhythms

The other day, I was surprised that Russel Watchtower, the manager of the Ministry of Truth at the Darwin Ranch, was feeling a mite conversational. We were both in town for supplies, but he kept on yawning. That caused a few of my own. I remarked that our circadian rhythms were out of whack from the recent time change thing.

We all have these inner clocks that do not like to be adjusted. Seriously disrupting our time can cause physical and mental problems.

Almost all living things have many inner clocks. Most are centered on the 24-hour day, matching creation week. Evolutionists explain with fantasies.

In addition, we have numerous inner clocks...when I say "we", I mean living things. Mammals have them regulating physiology in many different ways, with a master clock and subordinate clocks, all the way down to the cellular level. Less complex life forms have them, too.

If one were to undertake describing the evolution of the alarm clock, it would be rather straightforward. With biological timepieces, not so much. Believers in universal common descent cannot give plausible explanations for the origin of these clocks. Just fantastical speculations, not actual science with evidence and all that good stuff. The fact that so many inner mechanisms are based on 24-hour days is amazing, and also agrees with the Genesis account of the six-day creation week.

A large number of organisms possess operational systems that vary in intensity in a rhythmic manner over a 24-hour period. These circadian rhythms usually are entrained by light and are vital for the robust functioning of the organism. The immediate interest for us is the origin of the regulatory system underlying circadian rhythms. The regulatory systems responsible for rhythmic phenomena can be complex, especially in plants and animals. No transitional schemes can be constructed to explain the emergence of the more complex systems from the simpler ones found in bacteria on account of lack of homologous features conserved across the kingdoms. In laboratory experiments, considerable design input is needed to construct the simplest artificial biological clock; these do not run on a 24-hour cycle. The existence of circadian clocks, with fundamental common design elements, specified complexity, and functional coherence, argues for the existence of a designer.

Before I give you the link, here are a couple of articles on the subject that are less technical. First, "We All Have Rhythm", and then "Your Many Inner Clocks". People who have knowledge of biology will get the most out of the article excerpted above. To finish reading it, click on "Circadian rhythms and creation." By the way, I heard that melatonin helps during that first week after changing the clocks, especially after "spring ahead."
