Symbiosis and Interfaces

Science is constantly growing and changing, some disciplines more than others. There are models and predictions used to explain data, especially in historical areas such as origins. Many areas are underdeveloped and need work.

Creation science also has areas that need to be explored and strengthened. For example, Genesis Flood models have tremendous explanatory abilities, but certain areas need work. Creationists point these out and have calls to action. One area in biology that needs analysis and understanding is symbiotic relationships and interfaces.

As stated before, theories and models come and go, but biblical creationists (also called young-earth or young-age creationists) keep the inerrancy of Scripture as a priority. If a model has problems with science or Scripture, it needs to go away.

Living things have their niches in ecological environments. Understanding how they live and adapt is complicated enough, but scientists also need to deal with symbiotic relationships. Symbiosis can be described as a "win-win situation" where both parties benefit. One of the most famous is the clownfish and the anemone, where the fish provides nutrients for the anemone and the anemone protects the clownfish.

Some creationists want symbiosis examined more closely — as well as the interface between them. When people use smartphones, laptops, and so on, they are using an interface to get the results they want. The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project of 1975 was to have two different space capsules meet and dock in space — using an interface. An adaptor.

Different organisms living together and providing for each other have complex, evolution-defying arrangements. The interface between them that makes it work needs to be studied. Each one is probably different, but perhaps there is something that is common in each instance.

There is need for a design model of symbiotic relationships in young-age creationism. Symbiotic relationships are crucial for the functioning of healthy biospheric processes and ecosystem stability. Philosophical naturalists posit that these relationships evolved, and co-evolved later as natural selection, initially focused on struggle and competition in simple organisms, led to greater complexity and cooperation through system self-organization. Alternatively, God created complex cooperative systems with astounding complexity from the beginning. . . . Therefore, we propose a new design model of symbiotic relationships using human-engineered interface systems as viable analogues for understanding and describing them. A mind is the only known origin of interface systems. . . .
