Human Body: A Marvellous Machine

Still wondering about what a simple-looking human body can do? This article will make you gain knowledge of what in reality our bodies are capable of doing.4 min


We live in an amazing world with so many creatures like us. The greatest of all the creations on earth is the man himself, the marvelous machine, very precise and efficient in nature. The human body has a dynamic framework of bones and cartilages called the skeleton. The human skeleton is way too flexible, with the hinges and joints that were made by the creator for us to move. Also in order to cut down the harmful frictions, such moving parts must get lubricated. Just like the man-made machines are lubricated by an outside source. But the human body lubricates itself by manufacturing a jelly-like substance in the right amount at every right place where it is needed.

A strong case can be made for the most complex and ingenious thing in the universe, the human body! Our bodies are composed of various complex organs like eyes, kidneys, etc. Whereas the human brain makes the most advanced computer in today’s world. The number of cells and synapses in our brains are compared to the number of stars in the universe by scientists.

The human body is an incredibly complex design and powerful evidence of its creator mindset. There are many functions that the brain and body perform on an everyday basis. Thousands of books have been written on the working of the brain, heart, lungs, etc., of the human body!

The basic chemicals in our body can be found out anywhere on the earth. But, these useful chemicals cannot send themselves into cell tissues, organs, and systems. This could only happen with an input of intelligence. Human bodies have been designed with the ability to pass on the program information to the next generation with the help of simple chemicals present in the bodies.

If you examine all the pieces of evidence, you will conclude that our body did not evolve just by chance. Our creator has given us this precious body, and we should continue to move ahead in our appreciation of its incredible designing.

We are a lot more than just the chemicals that are present in our body. We are a special creation of our creator.
