Design and Perfection In Our World
3
Design and Perfection
  • Hebrews 34
  • For every house is built by someone, but He who
    built all things is God.

4
Design and Perfection
  • The perfection of complex structures has always
    been one of the strongest evidences of creation.
  • (Steven Jay Gould, Of Turtles, Vets, Elephants,
    and Castles. New Scientist, Jan. 11, 1979)

5
Design and Perfection
  • For, even if we allow that chance might have
    occasionally hit on a relatively ingenious
    adaptive end, it seems inconceivable that it
    could have reached so many ends of such
    surpassing perfection.
  • (Michael Denton, Evolution A Theory In Crisis,
    p.327)

6
Design Of The Human Body
  • Psalm 13914
  • I will praise You, for I am fearfully and
    wonderfully made Marvelous are Your works, And
    that my soul knows very well.

7
Design Of The Eye
  • To suppose that the eye could have been formed
    by evolution, seems, I freely confess, absurd in
    the highest degree.
  • (Charles Darwin, The Origin Of The Species, p.250)

8
The Human Eye
9
The Human Ear
10
Designer Of The Eye And Ear
  • Proverbs 2012
  • The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has
    made them both.

11
Design Of The Brain
  • In terms of complexity, an individual cell is
    nothing when compared with a system like the
    mammalian brain.
  • (Michael Denton, ibid, p.330)

12
The Human Brain
13
Design Of The Brain
  • In spite of the steady accumulation of detailed
    knowledge, how the human brain works is still
    profoundly mysterious.
  • (Francis Crick, Thinking About The Brain,
    Scientific American, Sept. 1979, p.219)

14
Designer Of The Brain
  • Job 3836
  • Who has put wisdom in the mind? Or who has given
    understanding to the heart?

15
Designer Understood From Things That Are Made
  • Romans 120
  • For since the creation of the world His invisible
    attributes are clearly seen, being understood by
    the things that are made, even His eternal power
    and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

16
Design and Perfection
  • The inference to design is purely an induction
    based on a ruthlessly consistent application of
    logic of analogy. The conclusion may have
    religious implications, but it does not depend on
    religious presuppositions.
  • (Michael Denton, ibid. p.341)

17
The Heavens Speaking Of The Designer
  • Psalm 191-3
  • The heavens declare the glory of God And the
    firmament shows His handiwork. 2 Day unto day
    utters speech, And night unto night reveals
    knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language
    Where their voice is not heard.

18
Design and Perfection
  • It is the sheer universality of perfection, the
    fact that everywhere we look, to whatever depth
    we look, we find an elegance and ingenuity of an
    absolutely transcending quality, which so
    mitigates against the idea of chance.
  • (Michael Denton, ibid, p. 342)

19
Design and Perfection
  • If it could be proved that any part of the
    structure of any one species had been formed for
    the exclusive good of another species, it would
    annihilate my theory, for such could not have
    been produced through natural selection.
  • (Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, p. 302)

20
Symbiosis Of The Yucca Moth And The Yucca Plant
  • Symbiosis
  • The association of dissimilar organisms to their
    mutual advantages.

24
Instincts
  • Many instincts are so wonderful that their
    development will probably appear to the reader a
    difficulty sufficient to overthrow my whole
    theory.
  • (Charles Darwin, The Origin of The Species,
    p.228)

25
Instincts
  • The plain fact is that the genetic mechanism
    shows not the slightest sign of being able to
    convey specific behavior patterns…When we ask
    ourselves how any instinctive pattern of behavior
    arose in the first place and became hereditarily
    fixed we are given no answer.
  • (Gordon Taylor, The Great Evolution Mystery, p.
    221)

The Artic Tern

The Artic Tern Migration Route
28
Instinct
  • How Can millions of blind termites synchronize
    their labors to build and air-condition their
    elaborate structures?
  • Instinct

29
Termite Mound

Termite Mound
31
Instinct
  • How do the mimosa girdle beetle know it must lay
    its eggs under the bark of a mimosa tree branch,
    come in a foot or so toward the trunk, and cut
    the bark all the way around to kill the branch,
    because its eggs will not hatch in live wood?
  • Instinct

32
The Mimosa Girdler Beetle
33
Instinct
  • How does a dancing honeybee tell other bees where
    nectar is, how far it is, in what direction it
    is, and what kind of flower it is on?
  • Instinct

34
The Honeybee Dance
35
The Honeybee Dance
36
Instinct
  • How can the spider the lives in its diving bell
    under water know that when the oxygen is gone it
    must cut a hole in its underwater bell, release
    the stale air, mend the hole and bring down a
    supply of fresh air?
  • Instinct

37
The Diving Bell Spider
38
Designer Of The Designs
  • Hebrews 34
  • For every house is built by someone, but He who
    built all things is God.
