Biology is the science discipline that studies life processes or characteristics of living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, distribution and evolution. Creation biology is basically the study of biological systems under the inference that God created life on Earth with a finite number of discrete created kinds or baramin. While these forms of life have the ability to vary, and even undergo speciation, they cannot arise spontaneously from non-life, cannot interbreed outside of their kind, and cannot increase in genetic complexity.

White blood cell

Red White Blood cells.jpg

White blood cells are the type of blood cells that fight infection in the body by seeking-out and destroying disease-causing microorganisms. Also known as leukocytes, the white blood cells are responsible for maintaining the immune system’s response to foreign substances and infection. They play a number of roles in immune response, including antibody production, attacking and destroying cancer cells, and producing substances that kill tumors. They are divided into many different categories on the basis of their functions and appearance.

Selected biography



Harold W. Clark

Harold Willard Clark (1891-1986) was a Berkeley-trained biologist and a former student of George McCready Price who later replaced him on the faculty of Pacific Union College in 1922. Clark ultimately taught biology at Seventh-Day Adventist colleges for thirty-five years. Clark was a young earth creationist, who published his first book in 1929 (Back to Creationism) in which he urged readers to quit simply opposing evolution and to adopt the new "science of creationism". The term "creationism" subsequently became popularly used by scientific creationists to describe their distinctive interpretation of earth history.

Quotes



"The origin of the [genetic] code is perhaps the most perplexing problem in evolutionary biology. The existing translational machinery is at the same time so complex, so universal, and so essential that it is hard to see how it could have come into existences or how life could have existed without it. The discovery of ribozymes has made it easier to imagine an answer to the second of these questions, but the transformation of an 'RNA world' into one in which catalysis is performed by proteins, and nucleic acids specialize in the transmission of information, remains a formidable problem." - Maynard Smith J. & Szathmary E., "The Major Transitions in Evolution," W.H. Freeman: Oxford UK, 1995, p81.[1]
