Antibodies are protein-structured
weapons, which are manufactured to fight against the
foreign cells entering the human body. These weapons
are produced by the B cells, a class of warriors of
the immune system.
Antibodies destroy invaders. They
have two main functions: The first is to bind to the
invader cell, which is the antigen. The second is
to decompose the biological structure of the antigen
and destroy it.
Swimming in the blood and non-cellular
fluid, antibodies bind to disease-causing bacteria
and viruses. They mark the foreign molecules to which
they bind, so that the body's fighter cells can distinguish
them. This way, they also inactivate them. This resembles
a tank becoming useless and unable to move or fire
shells when it is hit by a guided missile in the battleground.
An antibody fits the enemy (antigen) perfectly, just
like a key and a lock assembling in a three-dimensional
The human body can produce a compatible
antibody for almost every enemy it encounters. Antibodies
are not of one type only. According to the structure
of every enemy, a specific antibody powerful enough
to deal with it is produced. This is because an antibody
produced for one disease may not be effective on another.
Manufacturing a specific antibody
for each enemy is rather an unusual process, which
deserves closer attention. This process can be realized
only if the B cells know their enemies and their structures
very well. There are, however, millions of enemies
(antigens) in nature.
This is like manufacturing a compatible
key for each of millions of locks straight away. What
is important is that the manufacturing agent does
this without examining the lock or using any mould.
It knows the formula by heart.
It is quite difficult for a human
being to memorize the shape of even a single key.
So, is it possible for a person to keep in mind the
three-dimensional designs of millions of keys that
are to open millions of locks?
Definitely not. However, a B cell
so small as to be imperceptible by the eye keeps millions
of bits of information in its memory, and uses them
in correct combinations in a conscious way.
The storage of millions of formulae
in a miniscule cell is a great miracle presented to
man. No less miraculous is the cell's using this information
to protect man's health.
It is obvious that the secret of
the tremendous success of these tiny cells is beyond
the boundaries of human's comprehension. Today, the
power of the human mind even combined with advanced
technology pales into insignificance in the face of
the intelligence displayed by these cells. In fact,
even evolutionist scientists cannot close their eyes
to all these signs of intelligence, which are clear
evidence of the existence of a conscious Creator.
One of the greatest advocators of evolution in Turkey,
Prof. Dr. Ali Demirsoy, confessed this in his book
"Inheritance and Evolution":
How and in what form did plasma
cells obtain this information, and produce the
antibody exclusively designed according to it?
This question has not been answered precisely
As confessed by the evolutionist
scientist above, how antibodies are produced is a
point that has not been clearly understood as yet.
The technology of the 20th century has proved insufficient
even at the level of understanding the methods of
this perfect production. In the years to come, as
the methods used by these tiny cells - which are created
to serve mankind - and how they implement them are
unraveled, the perfection and artistry in the creation
of these cells will be better understood.
