Vidqun I see you have abandoned the conversation. I'm not surprised.
I added this topic to my series "Evolution is a Fact" specifically because you raised the subject of complex cells on another thread.
You began by laying out your extensive scientific credentials as a basis of your authority to dismiss evolution and endosymbiosis specifically. To your credit, having seen the evidence, you have acknowledged the reality of endosymbiosis and accepted that it has been observed in the lab - including the transfer of genes from symbiont to host. However you continued to insist that this doesn't explain the origin of eukaryotic cells.
You raised nine objections on the previous page and linked these to extracts from scientific papers. Although you provided no links I was able to track down most of them and in my previous post explain how each of them described specific evidence for the origin of organelles and contradicted your objections.
Your final reply - after numerous attempts to change the subject - has been to totally ignore my evidence and post a bizarre rant about the supposed pagan origins of a scientific theory and yet another attempt to change the subject to "information theory".
Let me just say that you are making a common error by conflating evolution with atheism. Millions of christians accept the fact of evolution, including many prominent scientists. Kenneth Miller and Frances Collins are two names you might want to check out. Both of them have reconciled evolution with their faith.
Having to hide from evidence, obfuscation, changing the subject etc is a sad situation to be in. Perhaps you would enjoy Miller's book "Finding Darwin's God" for an intellectually honest and scientifically respectful position.
I am not going to be distracted by your latest attempt to change the subject. I have already posted a lot of information about the evidence for evolution in DNA. If we had absolutely no fossils it would not matter one little bit. Genetic evidence proves the fact of evolution beyond all reasonable doubt. As for "information theory" I may cover that in a later thread in this series.
We have now seen extensive evidence that the mitochondria in all of our cells - with the exception of red blood cells - originated as free living prokaryotic bacteria. Having invaded an ancient archaea the two formed a sort of chimera with more than 99% of the genes being transferred to the nucleus of the host cell.
In part two of this subject I will look at the possibilities for complexity that endosymbiosis made possible and at the origin of the nucleus in the eukaryotic cell.
See links below for information about the DNA evidence for evolution.
#1 Protein Functional Redundancy
Comparing the sequences of amino acids in ubiquitous proteins confirms the relationship between all living things.
#2 DNA Functional Redundancy
Comparison of the DNA that codes for the amino acids of ubiquitous proteins predicts the tree of life with an astonishing degree of accuracy.
Endogenous retroviruses that infected our ancestors are found in the same place of the genome of our closest primate cousins.
#4 Smelly Genes
Hundreds of broken genes that used to code for olfactory receptors in our ancestors are still found in our genome.
#5 Vitamin C
Why humans can no longer make their own vitamin C and what that tells us about our species' history.
#6 Human Chromosome 2
Our second biggest chromosome is made up of two of our ancestors' chromosomes stuck end-to-end.
#7 Human Egg Yolk Gene
Humans and our primate cousins have the genes for making vitellogenin and they are all broken in the same way.
#8 Jumping Genes
Bits of parasitic code called ALU elements prove our common ancestry with primates.
#9 Less Chewing More Thinking
A broken gene for a type of muscle fibre we no longer have tells a story about our evolutionary past.
#10 Non-Coding DNA
In common with many other species huge amounts of our genome originated as copying errors.
