Researchers at Chicago’s Northwestern University have videoed the moment of conception in a human egg and it causes a flash of light.
In an earlier study, the research team noticed an explosion of light in mice eggs when they came in contact with sperm, and were uncertain if it took place in humans.
Speaking on behalf of the research team, Dr. Teresa Woodruff said:
“We discovered the zinc spark just five years ago in the mouse, and to see the zinc radiate out in a burst from each human egg was breath-taking. It was remarkable.”
According to the researchers at the precise moment a sperm touches an egg, it causes a spontaneous release of calcium that results in zinc being released inside the egg. The light explosion occurs as the zinc binds with fluorescent molecules.
The flash is so intense, it can actually be seen outside the egg. They now believe that zinc starts the process of creating a completely new genetic person.
They were able to create this explosion by inserting sperm enzymes, versus actual sperm, inside the eggs.
It is amazing how people think the process of conception just evolved. It is so complicated and intricate that it demands a creator. But people have chosen to blind themselves to the truth.
It is curious, that throughout the Bible there are references to the “light of life.”
After Jesus saved the woman caught in adultery by the Pharisees, the Lord turned to her saying:
12 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” (John 8:12 NASV)
Though I don’t necessarily believe that the phrase ‘light of life’ is referring to the flash that takes place at conception, it is interesting to note that Christ said we cannot see the Kingdom of God unless we are “born again” (John 3:1-5).
For you have delivered me from death
and my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life. (Psalm 56:13 NIV)
