What are the evidences in the human body that show the creator?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,


7.6.1-The heart that sends ten tons of blood to vessels every day

All of the systems of human body and every organ of it have been created extraordinarily. For example, the heart, which is as big as a lightly squeezed fist, throws the blood, which is like the life water of the bodies, into vessels. The heart throws about 150-160 cm3 of blood, that is about a glass of water, into vessels at a shot. It amounts to 10 liters per minute. The amount of blood thrown by the heart into the blood vessels in one day is enough to fill a 10-ton tanker.

There is an average of 5-5.5 liters of blood in the body of an adult person; it is enough to fill three large jugs. As the same blood circulates the body, that is, as the same blood comes to the heart and is thrown, 10 tons of blood circulates every day. Let us think how much the heart, whose duty is to throw 10 tons of blood into the vessels per day, works in a year and how long it works throughout life. Is it not necessary to thank the Creator, who created our hearts in such a marvelous way, as many times as the heart beats?

7.6.2 -Blood vessel network of one hundred and fifty thousand kilometers

There is a blood vessel network of 150.000 kilometers whose duty is to take the blood that the heart pumps to the organs like water pipes. If the thin, microscopic capillaries are also included, there is a blood vessel network that can surround the earth four times from the equator in the body.1

The vessels can be likened to a closed water pipe system. The blood, which we can call life water, is carried in the blood vessels that are in a closed system. While most of the blood is water, it also contains oils, proteins, blood sugar and many other chemical structures. However, blood is not just a chemical compound. It contains blood cells, which are shaped elements of blood. Blood cells also include erythrocytes, that is, red blood cells, leukocytes, that is, white blood cells, and thrombocytes (platelets), which enable blood to clot. The number of red blood cells in one cubic millimeter is about 5-5.5 million. Yes, there are more blood cells in the blood as small as a pin point than the population of a large city; they are all organized according to the work they do and they are all created based on fine calculations.

7.6.3- Man is created again every moment

We can liken the human body virtually to a building whose bricks are constantly renewed. Something like that is definitely not possible for buildings. If we make a slight renovation in a building, if we try to change only a brick, there will be dust all around. Changes and renovations that occur in the human body take place in such an organized manner that we do not even notice them. When these changes occur in the body, all of the activities of the body continue without any interruption. You can liken it to replacing the parts of an engine while the engine is running.

The material structure of man is renewed almost every year. However, man retains the same characteristics in terms of his traits and characters. No change takes place in them. We can understand it from the following fact: There is a meaning that is not dependent on matter and does not change with it in man. That meaning is the spirit. If the spirit were dependent on matter, there would be changes in spiritual feelings as the human body changed.

The material changes that occur in human life occur gradually. At the moment of death, this change will occur suddenly; the destruction of cells and tissues will occur in a short time. Since the change in the body throughout life does not cause any change in the spirit, there must be no destruction or alteration in the spirit at the moment of death. The divine power, which does not allow a change in the spirit throughout life, will preserve the spirit, which is the precious essence in man, in death too.

7.6.4- Regeneration of the skin

The most visible and best example of the occurrence of the regeneration in human body is in the nails and hair. Our nails and hair grow every day at a certain rate; this daily microscopic growth becomes visible in the course of time; all of the human hair and nails are renewed every 6 or 7 months. The top layer of our skin, which is called the epidermis, is renewed once a month. The epithelial layer, which forms the inner surface of our intestines, is renewed at least once a week.

The following question can come to mind: “How does this regeneration take place in not only humans but also animals and plants, that is, in all living beings?” The cells are renewed based on the measures imposed by God Almighty, who created us in an extraordinary way and who enables us to live based on a system. The cells that duplicate through a division called mitosis and the cells that are created anew replace the dead cells.

It is called apoptosis in medicine nowadays. Apoptosis is a word that means programmed cell death. In other words, the life of man continues with the manifestation of qadar (destiny);similarly, destiny plays a role in the lives of cells, which are building blocks of man. A brain cell lives until man dies but the lifespan of a cell in the top layer of the skin is about one month. Thus, under the manifestation of destiny, the cells die based on a system and newly created cells replace the ones that die based on an extraordinary system. The spirit is virtually a mold and a model in every human being; a fresh and new body is dressed on this model every year.

7.6.5 -Twenty-five trillion red blood cells

The estimated total number of red blood cells in the blood is 25 trillion. There are about 100 trillion cells in the human body. This means that the red blood cells constitute one fourth of the total number of cells in the body. Red blood cells carry oxygen, which is vital for other body cells, to cells. They also take the carbon dioxide, which occur as a result of the activity of the body cells, from the cells to the lungs.

If we could place 25 trillion red blood cells one over the other like coins, a column of 50 000 km high could occur. If we could place all red blood cells in a single human being next to each other like a chain, we would have a length of approximately 187 500 km. This is a length that can go round the Earth 4.5 times from the equator.

If all of the red blood cells in a human being were to be laid on the floor like a carpet, they could cover a surface of 3800 m2. This is equivalent to approximately four decares of land.2

How can all this fit into a human body that is 1.5 to 2 meters tall? That is the extraordinary and miraculous aspect of the issue.

7.6.6 -2.5 million red blood cells die every second

Although regeneration takes place in almost every tissue in the human body, the most typical, obvious and beautiful example of it is seen in the blood as the regeneration of the red blood cells. 2.5 million red blood cells die in the human body every second, not every hour or every minute. This means the death of 150 million red blood cells per minute and 216 billion red blood cells per day in the human body.3

Another feature of the red blood cells is that they cannot divide in the way we call mitosis and they cannot produce baby cells, unlike most of the cells in the body. Red blood cells were not created with the ability to produce new cells to replace them when they die. So, what cells are to replace the 2.5 million cells that die every second in the red blood cells? Allah has created organs that produce blood cells in the human body in order to compensate for this great destruction.

The organs in which blood cells are created in the body are bone marrows, which we would not probably guess. The primary duty of the bones is to help the body skeleton stand like the concrete columns in buildings, as we can imagine. The concrete columns that help the buildings stand are solid, not hollow. The bones that help enable the body to stand are hollow, more precisely, filled with bone marrow. Bone marrow is the tissue in which the most cell regeneration called mitosis takes place. Bone marrow is the place where erythrocytes, namely, red blood cells, are produced. The red blood cells that get old die constantly and this deficiency is compensated by the red blood cells that are constantly created in the bone marrow.

2.5 million red blood cells die per second in man and 2.5 million newly and freshly created red blood cells enter into blood circulation from bone marrows.4

This delicate balance continues throughout life. If three million red blood cells entered into blood circulation instead of 2.5 million per second, the balance would be disturbed. Or, on the contrary, if two million red blood cells entered into blood circulation from bone marrows instead of 2.5 million per second, the balance would be disturbed again. 2.5 million red blood cells die per second and 2.5 million red blood cells are re-created. And this balance is maintained throughout life. This delicate balance, which is seen in every organ, every tissue, or even in every cell in the human body, is much more obvious in red blood cells, namely erythrocytes. This delicate balance is just one manifestation of God Almighty’s name Adl, that is, the one that creates everything based on a fine measurement and maintains it in a balance.

This change, which takes place in the body cells, is also seen in the molecular level within the cells. The cytoplasm of the cell is seen in constant motion like boiling water in the microscopic films of the living cells shot with special microscopes. The change in the cell membrane can be shown as an example to this change, which takes place in the molecular level in the cell. A fat molecule in a cell membrane was determined to have changed its place 10 million times in only one second.5

7.6.7- Is a bone not renewed?

It can be thought that the bone tissue will not be renewed and that it will remain fixed as concrete columns in buildings. In fact, the bone tissue is one of the most renewed tissues in the body. It has been understood that 25%, that is one-fourth, of the calcium ions in the blood are replaced by the calcium ions stored in the bones every minute.6

The old structure in the bone tissue forms with the addition of the new bone tissue. All of the calcium in the bones in infants and 18% of it in adults are renewed every year.7

All regeneration activities are clear evidences showing that God Almighty intervenes consciously and controls and manages the universe, the earth, the molecules and atoms of humans, animals and plants all the time. Otherwise, a slight lack of control would lead to an irreparable mess everywhere; everything would be in chaos.

7.6.8- White Blood Cells (Leukocytes)

Along with red blood cells, there is another group of cells called white blood cells, namely leukocytes, in the human blood. They are fewer in number compared to red blood cells. There is only one white blood cell for about a thousand red blood cells in the blood. This rate does not change throughout life and remains at this level. If this rate, which is equal to one to one thousand, increased to two to one thousand, it would be an undesirable state for the body and an indicator of a disease.

There is only one type of red blood cell; there are no other subgroups. Although the white blood cells are few in number, there are sub-groups, that is, varieties of them. Let us deal with lymphocytes, which are a kind of white blood cells, a bit. There are totally about one trillion lymphocytes in the human body. About one billion new lymphocytes are created in the human body every day. They replace the lymphocytes that die. This balance of dying and newly created lymphocytes continues throughout life.

7.6.9- The antibodies that eliminate the harmful substances in the body

One of the important functions of the cells called lymphocytes is to produce and synthesize the chemical substances called antibodies against the antigens that harm the body and all kinds of harmful substances, microbes, etc.; antibodies eliminate the harms of the harmful antigens and virtually neutralize them.

In the human body, 1020, that is, the number having 20 zeros after 10, antibodies are synthesized by lymphocytes throughout life. If all of the other cells in the human body existed but if these cells, whose duty is to produce and synthesize the chemicals called antibodies, did not exist in the human body, a person would die in case of a slight infection, an infectious disease, and infection with a small germ because there would be no chemical substances, antibodies, to defend the body8

This is new information that has been obtained as a result of studies and works of many years or even centuries. Who knows the needs of man, creates him in the womb according to the conditions of the world and sends him to the world since the creation of the first man? Who equips the cells in the human body against the harmful effects of bacteria and germs, and protects all humans and animals? Can the mindless, unconscious, blind and handless nature do these things? Is it possible for nature and coincidence to do these things, which require infinite knowledge, power and strength? They can only be the work of Allah, whose knowledge and power are endless.
