The CrossChances are, Jesus wasn't even hung on a cross. The Bible uses the Greek word "stauros" which means "stake". It was tranlated to "cruz" for Latin. It was then translated to cross in English. The cross is derived from the pagan solar wheel. It was most likely introduced by the church/state in an effort to reconcile pagan beliefs with Christianity. This tactic is similar to the establishment of the celebration of Jesus' birthday during the pagan celebration of the Winter Soltice. The cross may also have been integrated into Christianity by pagan worshipers wishing to keep their familiar symbology while abiding by Roman law. Many cultures, long before the time of Jesus, used the symbol of the cross. For example, the Babylonians, the ancient Egyptians, and even ancient Mexican cultures all used the cross symbol before the birth of Christ. All of the these cultures worshiped the sun in one way or another.
The ProteinThe "t" shape of the protein is a common biological occurrence. The face of Jesus appearing on a slice of toast would be more unlikely. They like to use pretty pictures to represent the protein, but it actually looks more like this: Laminin is not the only essential bonding agent. There are many other proteins and polysaccharides that that are of equal importance.
ConclusionThe shape of this protein is not statistically improbable enough to carry any significance. If it were, it would not be relevant to Christianity. It would, however, be relevant to various pagan sun gods.
