131)Summary of the seven posts in my "Ayats(Signs) in the Universe series".

Blogpost no. 127 was the 7th in the above series, dealing with how proteins are made inside living cells and what, if any, allegories and symbolism about religion can be extracted from this sign or ayat in nature. This effort is based on the premise that the material universe is part of the structure of truth, the ultimate nature of which it is the goal of religion to reach.

The other 6 postings in the series have been summarized in blogpost no. 89, as follows:

89)'Ayats'(Signs) in the Universe series: previous postings.

As I began to put my thoughts down on this blogsite, some of my posts took on a decidedly personal flavour in so far as my appreciation of various objects and events(also known as signs or ayats) in the universe were concerned. I therefore created a specific grouping of posts and titled them "'Ayats'(Signs) in the Universe series". So far I have written 6 such posts and they are numbered 19, 29, 31, 38, 39 and 41 on the blogsite. The topics covered are varied and include:

1)a natural, pristine lakefront scene(post 19);
2)the goings-on inside a living cell(post 29);
3)the dynamic earth and the plate tectonics revolution(post 31);
4)the glorious, life-giving process of photosynthesis(post 38);
5)speeding angels and the relativity of time and space(post 39);
6)the beauty and evil of the HIV/Aids virus(post 41).
