Bacteria God

January 19, 2015 Vast populations of single-cell organisms ( bacteria, fungi and archaea) have consciously created reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals thus humans.  this creation was not a long series of random acts of natural selection working through previously evolved metabolic systems or a friendlier serial endosymbiosis of simple organisms into the complex  but a willful act by a vast  colonial mind, the total Earth population of bacteria, archaea and fungi  are a single mind that created the human brain and in so doing, our sentience.  God is inside each of us - indeed.  Each human supports a population of thousands of species of bacteria.

Microorganisms have existed on Earth 800 times longer than humans.  They are smarter than we are.  Four billion years for bacteria compared to five million years for humans.  There are millions of species of single cell organisms now living in a multitude of environments across the globe. There are 10,000 different species of bacteria in a spoonful of soil.  The human body contains more than a trillion bacterial individuals guiding each of us across the landscape of life doing our small part in restoring pre-Big Bang cosmic stasis.

Nature abhors a gradient.  A gradient is a disparity in temperature, pressure, electrical current, chemistry or other physical force across a distance. Organisms on Earth play a key role in diffusing the gradient between the sun’s heat and a cold universe, just as a tornado resolves the gradient between adjacent, differing atmospheric pressure systems.

365 Million Years Ago (MYA)  during the Cambrian Explosion (of plants and animals) following a global ice sheet melt, hundreds of thousands of new species of land animals suddenly appeared, taking advantage of another of their recent creations - plant life. 10-20 million years is “sudden” in geological time - the Earth is 5,000 million years old, life, in one form or another,  has existed for 4,000 million years.   A large cohort of the pelagic bacterial population migrated from free-floating in primeval soup to life on land staying  busy fueling and managing their new vehicles - animals.  their large new tools allowing emigration from the oceans into a vast array of  ecosystems, passengers in their new, less intelligent  hosts, doubling their impact in restoring the thermodynamic balance of the cosmos that plays out in our infinitely tiny corner here on Earth.

The human brain, cool as it is, is nothing special in the vastly abundant cornucopia of life.  It is a collection of cells  created to handle enormous synapto-electrical load imposed by social demands of an easily frightened, easily herded animal. Reading body language including facial expression and vocal intonation required increased neural metabolic rates.

Processing religious ideas in order to reverse natural selfish instinct, demands a lot of chemical energy -  brain power. The brain is a muscle working hard 24/7 to override our instinctive, natural selfishness. Religion demands that the human think altruistically, to turn the other cheek.  Dredging up an unnatural meekness takes a lot of synaptic activity, a lot of neurochemicals must be transported - put those mitochondria to work!

Wheat may not be the most nutritious food but it has been widely popular as a crop enabling the formation of complex human societies. It is an excellent drug for short-term energy supply needed for neural demands of living in a hierarchical society.  Wheat is the crack of the food pyramid.  They don't call them crackers for nothing.

The greater the trend to social organization and resulting complexity of all types of language ( speech, body, written), the greater has been the demand for brain power.  Hey !  this little human experiment appears to be working with this cave-dweller clubhouse and city-agriculture deal - let’s give ‘em a bigger brain and see what happens…………….oops, they’re now wrecking all our hard work - send in the clowns er, the Ebola and AIDS virus, get those fungi to do their share before it’s too late.  Humans have messed up our experiment.

  1. Does god exist?
  2. yes - god is microorganisms
  1.  Are humans more special than other animals
  2.  no - sorry
  1.  What is more correct, Darwinian evolution or this theory of bacteria - god creationism?
  2. Both adhere to natural selection but bacteria -god supplies the more fundamental causal unit.
  1.  How can tiny things like bacteria have a mind?
  2. They were on earth so much longer than humans they must be smarter - more devious, self-serving by tenure alone.  They work together not unlike all the neurons in our brain.
  1.  How do bacteria make plans?
  2.  How do bacteria communicate with one another - up close or at great distance?
  1.  What language do bacteria use to communicate with one another?
  1. Chemical, electrical
  1.  Any audio or tactile communication between bacteria?  If so, with what feature do they listen?
  1.  How might an individual bacterium process an audio signal without a brain of its own?
  1. There is efficacy / agency / capacity in numbers.  This is like asking if a single termite can build a city in the dirt or if a single neuron can solve a quadratic equation.
  1.  Do bacteria improve as they evolve? or do they just get different?
  2.  It is now widely subscribed in the scientific community that our intracellular mitochondria were once  free-living microorganisms.
  3. was the golgi body also a free-floating organism?
  4. Was the rough endoplasmic reticulum a long wormy organism that joined forces inside the cell for a better chance at survival?
  5.  Was there a time in deep history when the ribosome and endoplasmic reticulum were bonded and swam around independently of other organisms cranking out proteins that floated away?
  6.  Did these two, ER and Ribosomes,  enter the cell as a pair or was there a ten million year gap before they learned to work together synthesizing essential proteins - skin, heart muscle, lung tissue, etc.
  7.   Are there still free-floating organelles in the Earth’s oceans?  If not - why not? Is there a proto-lung or heart or brain  floating in the deep somewhere?
  8.  were there proto-liver, kidney, heart, adrenal, testicular, ovarian, pancreatic organelles?  If so, how much of their future character was manifest prior to their joining forces with other systems?  If this agglomeration occurred, did it happen all at once?  Did all of these organs and glands evolve as neutral tissue was assigned tasks appearing during mutation / bio-association followed by phenotypic expression?
