  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    What I am going to say may appear narcissistic, but it's true. If you want to see a miracle, all you have to do is just look in the mirror, and you will see the greatest miracle in this world: The Human Body, the amazingly wondrous creation of Supreme Power, in my view. The process of creation of human body begins with the union of sperm and ovum in the womb of a woman. It's just a beginning of the greatest miracle, because almost immediately begins the creation of thousands of millions of body cells, which in fact build the most complicated tissues, complex organs, and exceptionally intricate systems of the human body. Interestingly there are about one octillion cells in adult human body, which can be written as 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. And now comes the astounding fact: all these one thousand trillion trillion cells are created by only fifty consecutive replications of just one cell. Wow! That's what I consider miracle, created by none other than Supreme Power!
