In the retrospect of the publicity over Behe’s Devolution book, which exposes Darwinian evolution as the devourer rather than the builder of novelty in life systems, the sophisticated arithmetic calculation done by plants provide proof that, at the very least, if this ability evolved, it couldn’t have been by any know evolutionary mechanism today….
“Plants do complex arithmetic calculations to make sure they have enough food to get them through the night, new research published in journal eLife shows. Scientists at Britain’s John Innes Centre said plants adjust their rate of starch consumption to prevent starvation during the night when they are unable to feed themselves with energy from the sun. They can even compensate for an unexpected early night. here
“This is the first concrete example in a fundamental biological process of such a sophisticated arithmetic calculation,” mathematical modeler Martin Howard of John Innes Centre (JIC) said. During the night, mechanisms inside the leaf measure the size of the starch store and estimate the length of time until dawn. Information about time comes from an internal clock, similar to the human body clock.
“The capacity to perform arithmetic calculation is vital for plant growth and productivity,” JIC metabolic biologist Alison Smith said.
However, as some of you who don’t like to give me too much credit may already suspect the sophisticated arithmetic abilities of plants don’t end at this level of math… In the light of the undeniable evidence that the efficiency of the life-sustaining process of photosynthesis depends on quantum mechanics it seem logical that if plants have to do the very sophisticated math to calculate their starch reserves to survive, they also may have to be able to do some quantum mechanics equations to figure the intensity of light source depending on how long the “night” lasts, whether 8, 12 or 16 hours…(Unless of course Darwinists can isolate a watch inside the plant cells designed by the blind watchmaker that can detect photons in superposition in order to ascertain time…
If it is true that plants have the ability to not only sense quantum superposition of photons but also measure time, which it appears to be the case, the plants would have to have 2 sets of computers evolved separately; one to calculate the starch reserves and the second one to calculate the probabilities of quantum superposition or even another way of measuring time based on quantum mechanics…
I guess for Darwinists 2 simultaneous mutations will do to explain that…;-)
Who needs the involvement in pointless arguments with Darwinists over chloroquine resistance to bury Darwinism? The sophisticated arithmetic calculation abilities by plants will do…😉
