Mini Motor

How does a bacteria move through its watery environment?

It uses a motor-driven propeller! Evinrude, the name is proudly printed on the outside of an outboard motor. We know that it took teams of engineers to design and make this motor, all so that we can move through the water in our boats. We can see the same marvelous motor engineering in miniature, in the spinning flagellum a tiny hair-like structure of bacteria.
This flagellum can stop, start, change directions, and go in reverse while spinning its propeller at up to 100,000 revolutions per minute. Bacterial motors are almost 100% efficient while man-made electric motors are 75-95% efficient. When scientists examined this flagellum, they discovered the same parts that we see in a motor: a rotor, a stator, O-rings, bushings and a driveshaft. Forty different proteins are used to assemble this little motor. These flagellum motors are so tiny that eight million of them would fit in the width of human hair, this is the ultimate in miniaturization!
Evolutionists say this all came about by accident over millions of years. However, if any part is missing, the flagellum motor could not work. If your outboard motor did not have a rotor, O-rings, bushing, etc., or if they were in the wrong place, the motor would not work. All the parts had to be there right from the beginning in order for the motor to perform. The same applies to the miniature motorized flagellum; all the parts had to be there from the beginning and in the right order.
So this summer, as you putter around the lake with your outboard motor, think of the bacteria puttering around in its watery environment with its own built-in motor that was designed by God.
