Bacteria Is An Immortal, Living God

Art made with bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus and Rothia nasimurium). Agar Art 2017.

Bacteria is a living god. One planet-spanning being — immortal, creative, and powerful. Bacteria were the first life, they created the conditions for life, and they maintain life to this day. In a very biological sense, God is real, but it’s not an old man in a flowing beard. God is bacteria. Their pronouns are they/them.
