The creation, from the macro to the micro level is truly a wonder to behold.

Did you know that bacteria communicate with each other? Not only do bacteria communicate, some bacteria even perform what scientist’s have dubbed “Quorum Sensing.” Quorum sensing is the ability for bacteria to muster “roll call”, if you will, to determine if there are enough of them to successfully overtake an organism.

E. coli, Salmonella, Vibrio Cholera, and 30 other bacteria actually take a census to determine if the offensive will be worthwhile before attacking!

It reminds me of the words of the Lord from Luke 14:31-32

What king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
