Silly! Cells just randomly appear, how else would we have been made? Out of other cells?
Wow, where am I? There's a lot of people with white coats! Did my cells just randomly appear out of thin air?
A lightning bolt strikes Ed and he appears in a mall of scientists!
Stupid! Cells don't just appear, they come from other cells! Rudolph Virchow figured this out!
So where do the first cells come from? Clearly, animals aren't made of cells so we can eliminate that option.
Actually, all living organisms are made of cells! Thank Theodor Schwann and Robert Brown for that knowledge!
WOW! All this knowledge! Now it would be crazy if cells were the basic units of structure and function! That would really blow my mind!
That's actually right! Cells are the basic of structure and function! We know this thanks to our amazing scientists: Robert Hooke, Robert Brown, Matthias Schleiben, Theodor Schwann, and Rudolph Virchow!
I just realized that cells are the basic unit of structure and function, all living things are made of cells, and new cells form from existing cells!
ZAP! Ed teleports home
You are crazy! You just woke up from a horrible dream, go back and get some rest!
Ed sadly dies before sharing his amazing discoveries. It takes scientists hundreds of years to acquire the same knowledge as Ed had.
