When we examine bacteria we have to know what the size of it is and how we can observe it at work.

One thing that makes bacteria so unique and amazing is the fact that they are the smallest living thing. Keep in mind, though, they are not the smallest thing on earth but the smallest living creature in the world.

The average bacteria, which, in this case, would be E. coli., again, measures at about the .000078 of an inch. This is incredibly small. This is so small that it would take 12,820 and a half of E. coli., lined end to end,to equal one inch in length, yet it would still be invisible to the naked eye!

A foot of E coli. would be 153,846 lined end-to-end. A yard would be 461,538 of them. A mile would be 812,307,692 lined end-to-end. And, once again, you would not even be able to see that line because the bacteria are so tiny. Want to hear how many it would take for a lightyear (5,878,499,814,210 miles)?

4,775,150,618,121,117,052,190 and a half of those little creatures! To get a grasp of how tiny that is let us see how many people, lined end-to-end could make a light year.

5,245,940,115,892,191 five foot 11 people would make a light year with that. That is quadrillions of quadrillions less then the bacteria.

Hey, remember Canis Majoris? Moohahaha! Let’s wrap E coli. around him.

You could wrap (more or less) 4,631,042,427,784,278,800 E coli. around it. Can you imagine. That is roughly enough bacteria to give each person on the planet 771,840,404 and a half of the E coli. virus!

If we can find such tiny, living creatures with such a perfect design how can reject a Creator God?
