The Process of Photosynthesis Simplifies
2 Basic Organic Chemistry
Reactions and Equations
In nature, many organic chemicals are the result of photosynthesis. Intelligent Design theory looks at the process of photosynthesis and greatly simplifies basic organic chemistry and organic chemistry reactions and equations.
Organic chemists make building blocks of COOH, carbon linked to two oxygen atoms and one hydrogen atom (H). As we discussed earlier, H is not really an atom, but a neutron. Then what is an atom? Because H is not stable in nature, organic chemistry is extremely complex. Organic chemists add outer attachments of OH, O, C, and CH2 to COOH, and add other molecules to create the most complex patterns imaginable. Why not look at the way God put things together, combining carbon dioxide with water through photosynthesis, keeping the carbon atom and releasing O2 to produce organic compounds? Plants do not release H or C. Organic chemistry then becomes amazingly simple.
We may never understand how an Intelligent Designer made plants, and most likely will never be able to produce plant life from raw chemicals. However, we know that plants take up water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the presence of light and release oxygen (O2). Knowing only this,
H2O + CO2 are carbonic acid, H2O-CO2, which we complicate by calling it H2CO3. See Table 1 below.
Releasing O2 from 2(H2O-CO2) makes 2(H2O-CO), which is formic acid and begins the formic acid series, Table 2.
Taking away two oxygen atoms from 2(H2O-CO) makes 2(H2O-C), which is formaldehyde, and is the beginning of the formaldehyde series, Table 3.
Adding another 2CO2 to two carbonic acid molecules and taking away O2 makes 2(H2O-CO2-CO), which is oxalic acid, and the beginning of the oxalic acid series, Table 4.
If we add 2CO2 and 4H2O and take away 3O2, it makes 2(H2O-C-H2), which is methanol and is the beginning of the methanol series, Table 5. Continuing the process of adding carbon dioxide and water and releasing oxygen gives some very simple patterns of organic chemicals.
As an example, instead of viewing fructose (fruit sugar) as C6H12O6 in Table 3, we view it as six water molecules and six CO2 molecules, in which the oxygen has been stripped off the 6CO2. Instead of viewing fructose as a complex ketohexose and sucrose as a complex aldohexose, we view them as simply six water molecules and six carbon dioxide molecules with their oxygen stripped off that have combined in two different ways. Both are six carbonic acid molecules with the oxygen removed from the carbon dioxide. Fauna do not produce sugars, but their organs utilize sugars made by plants, combining them with various chemicals to produce other organic chemicals necessary for life-functions. This opens up a completely new way of investigating organic chemistry from a viewpoint of Intelligent Design Theory, the same as what plants do.
While organic chemistry shows what may or may not be correct bonding patterns, the above tables show organic chemistry from a God-centered viewpoint. In plant life, Intelligent Design of photosynthesis combined water and carbon dioxide in various combinations and stripped off oxygen to make organic chemicals. Basic organic chemistry then becomes more understandable, and organic chemistry reactions are much easier to synthesize. Continuation of other tables as shown above can make organic chemistry very simple to understand instead extremely complex organic chemistry, as it is today. Creationism should be taught in school.
