Some people say a man is made out of mud

Updated on September 16, 2014

Are we really made of mud?

Who are those people that say that? I have found that it is the ones that believe in the Creation as it is told in the Bible.

Genesis chapter 2 verses 4 - 8

"In the day that God made the earth and the heavens, when no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up-for God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground; but a stream would rise from the earth, and water the whole face of the ground- then God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.

And God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed."

So now I asked myself: What Are the Elements in the Human Body? Are we created from mud on the earth? Here are some of all the answers I found.

Sixteen tons - some people say that men is made out of mud

Tennessee Ernie Ford

So what is the human body made of?

all the raw material you can find on earth!

Man is created with exactly all the Macro minerals and Micro minerals we also find on the earth. We are actually built with the material that already were on this planet. So here we go:

Most of the human body is made up of water, H2O, with cells consisting of 65-90% water by weight. Therefore, it isn't surprising that most of a human body's mass is oxygen. Carbon, the basic unit for organic molecules, comes in second. 99% of the mass of the human body is made up of just six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus.

Macro minerals in us are:

1. Oxygen (65%)

2. Carbone (18%)

3. Hydrogen (10%)

4. Nitrogen (3%)

5. Calcium (1.5%)

6. Phosphorus (1.0%)

7. Potassium (0.35%)

8. Sulfur (0.25%)

9. Sodium (0.15%)

10. Magnesium (0.05%)

(Reference: H. A. Harper, V. W. Rodwell, P. A. Mayes)

Also we are created with these Micro minerals in us:

Iron, Fluoride, Zinc, Rubidium, Strontium, Lead, Copper, Aluminium, Cadmium, Barium, Cobalt, Vanadium, Iodine, Tin, Selenium, Arsenic, Manganese, Mercury, Nickel, Molybdenum, Chromium, bismuth, Lithium, Uranium, Boron, Germanium, Bromine, Gold, Silver, Beryllium, Antimony and Thallium.

If you took time to read the lists here, you will probably react the same way as I did. We have ARSENIC in us. Gold and Silver too. Mercury that is dangerous in itself but now used in our body!

The human cell

one of the greatest miracles

Now an even more fantastic detail is that this body of ours is created - from these raw materials - into small, small building blocks called cells. There are one sort of cell for each organ in our body but still created from the Minerals I listed. . And a single human body is made up of as many as 100 trillion cells. A cell is like a very smart and well protected city. It has guards, a wall and a city hall. This is just one way to explain the complexity of a cell. The cell is the structural and functional unit of all known living organisms. It is the smallest unit of an organism that is classified as living, and is often called the building block of life. All cells are enveloped by a membrane. This membrane serves to separate and protect a cell from its surrounding environment. A membrane which regulates what enters or exits that cell. All cells possess DNA, the hereditary material of genes, and RNA, containing the information necessary to build various proteins such as enzymes, the cell's primary machinery. A cell is built around a cytoskeleton. This gives the cell its shape.

(Quotation: Roger Ellis Gresham.)

And - of all these cells we have a brain that is built immensely complex. Some have called it the most complex object yet discovered in the universe. It contains some 100 billion nerve cells, that is about as many as the number of stars in our galaxy. Each of those cells branches off into thousands of connections with other cells. Scientists say that a human brain could contain all the information in all the world's libraries and that its storage capacity may, in fact, be unfathomable. Despite decades of studying this "wonderfully made" organ, scientists admit that they may never fully understand how it works. Do not call it a fantastic computer because it is so much more than that.

Man is made out of mud

and will return back to mud when he dies

This is why we can truly trust in the Bible when it later states that when we die, we go back to the earth because of it we are taken. We become dust again and that is a fact!

Genesis Chapter 3 verse 19:

"By the sweat of your face

you shall eat bread

until you return to the ground,

for out of it you were taken;

you are dust,

and to dust you shall return."

What is your conclusion? I most certainly am convinced that the man made out of mud is nothing less than a miracle! A warm, moving miracle that can breeze, laugh, sing, cry, plan, love, paint and - thank our Creator for life.

Honor where honor is due!

Clay figures

We have all one time tried to make something out of clay or play duh. but to really make a nice piece of art like these - would that not be nice?

Our fantastic body - take care of it!

The more knowledge we have about our body - the more we understand about ourselves - the better we can do in taking care of it!

      Excellent lens, and it is puzzling where man came from. I find that newer translations from the Sumerian texts, which are far more detailed than those in the Book of Genesis, provide a lot more background on the origins of man and the involvement of "The Gods". Logically to me these seem far more likely, and I wonder if we will ever know the truth. So much of our pre-history has been tragically lost forever, so it might forever remain a mystery. Nicely done, blessed.

      Isn't creation beautiful! We're made of the same stuff like it or not. That's why kids love to eat dirt and play in it. Very thoughtful, creative and lovely just like our creator.

      Yes indeed, we are made of the same stuff, all of us. How it all comes together to make us so complex is amazing. Very interesting and well researched lens!
