It is not true that more are the shape of a cross than are not. Just count. And they ALL had the general shape of a Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man dancing happily away.http://www.ml-inflatable.com/cp/html/im ... 116568.gif
But I don't see you crediting Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man. Why not? It's not for a reason that has to do with what the images most resemble, otherwise you'd be changing your religion right now. It has to do with what religion you already have; i.e., confirmation bias.
> Laminin is a cell adhesion molecule
Yes, one of many molecules and structures, each of which have vital roles in keeping us alive. That you have found one of around 30,000 human [poly]peptides that occasionally resembles a certain shape is meaningless -- in fact, it's statistically more likely to find a structure loosely resembling a simple shape like a cross than NOT finding one if there are 30,000 chances. As I have already shown you, not only does laminin hardly resemble a cross in the real world, there are other molecules that do more resemble a cross in the real world. In fact, I can easily come up with molecules of other shapes, but you would dismiss them for no other reason than that they don't fit your confirmation bias:
- Fructose is a sugar that is a necessary part of the process of getting energy from eaten carbohydrates. In solution (as in the body), fructose's center resembles the outline of a pentagram. (And fructose doesn't flex like laminin does, so it *always* has that outline.) Does that mean that Satan designed our digestive enzymes?
- Calmodulin is a really neat enzyme that binds calcium ions and is active in signal transduction and protein targeting in the body. It's shaped kind of like a fist but with its index finger and thumb fully extended. Does this mean that the creator likes playing Cops & Robbers, or just that he likes shooting people? (C'mon, a gun shape used for protein *targeting*? Gotta be an endorsement of the NRA!)
But hey, if you insist on sticking with "cell adhesion molecules," how about the [poly]peptide components of desmosomes (structures that button cells to one another)?
Here's a simple cartoon of a desmosome's parts:http://www.revespcardiol.org/sites/defa ... 81fig1.jpg
I see heads with snakes coming out of them. Our creator is Medusa?
Here's desmoplakin, a protein in the desmosome:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c ... B_1lm5.png
Looks like a curly wig to me. God must be bald.
By the way, do you know what desmosomes need to function? Calcium. So they can't work without calmodulin! God uses a wig to cover the snakes on his head while he plays Cops & Robbers.
This is the conclusion you get when you start trying to ascribe meaning to molecules that participate in cellular [adhesion]. But you and I both know that this approach is silly.
