Flying insects use all sorts of creative methods to get from from point A to point B. About 54.5 million to 37 million years ago, at least one species of beetle was using wings that looked like helicopter propellers to get around, Science News reports.
If I found an old helicopter, everyone would know that it was made by humans because it is too complex to have been created by a bolt of lightning striking a tree that was next to some scrap metal or something, right? OK, then how are evolutionist scientists going to explain how THIS came about? Helicopter wings on an insect? Wings in and of themselves are an amazing “invention” — one we’ve barely been able to replicate — and yet most people believe (we don’t have proof) that they evolved by chance and luck and chemicals. How’d the chemicals get there? Chance and luck and matter mixing and reacting, right? How’d the matter get here? A big explosion. What exploded? Everything. How? Well… we’re working on that one.
Creationist scientists know that since God is unchanging, his laws won’t change either. (Gravity, Laws of Thermodynamics, Laws of Motion, etc.) Because of this knowledge, we can use the scientific method to examine and try to begin to understand nature around us. We can even predict things! How amazing is that? 😀 We know exactly how creation came into being. God told it to. 🙂 Everything was created within a week, even these helicopter beetles. The intricate design of God’s creation is something that we can try to replicate, but he gave us the materials in the first place, so we really can’t take credit for any of it. But, that’s OK! We are here to bring him glory, and that’s all that the founding fathers of science, like Isaac Newton, wanted to do. Should our mindset be any different?
P.S. Dear Evolutionists, you do know that the word “universe” comes from “uni-” (single) and “-verse” (spoken sentence). The thing you say came about by chance is actually called a “single spoken sentence.”
Well, here we are. It’s the last quotes challenge post. Thanks for sticking with me this far, and I hope that you guys have enjoyed the quotes I’ve posted! If you want more, I have a page called Favorite Quotes and Bible Verses at the top of my blog that I add quotes to when I remember. 🙂 Have you guys noticed the extra fourth quote I’ve been adding as the featured image at the top of these posts? You have? Have you? (thanks, Grammarly) Good! I realized I could bend the rules a bit by doing that. 😉
Before we get to the quotes and nominations, I have exciting news! I aced my open-book second-semester math exam! I did Mr. D Math this year and now I’m done with Algebra I forever! Next year I’ll be taking Geometry with the same program because I heartily recommend it to anyone, whether they struggle with math or it’s their favorite thing ever (or anywhere in-between).
Also, today’s date is a palindrome! 6-1-16 (minus the dashes) is 6116 and I have smiled every time I’ve written it on schoolwork today. 🙂 I’m smiling just typing that out! So, this is an unofficial math day because of that.
Now, our feature presentation. *really old Disney intro music*
The Converse picture was made by my artistic sister who knows me way too well. 🙂 (That is my foot too, BTW). I have done that before too… to church. *shocked gasps* 🙂
Welcome back to the Quotes Challenge! I’m your host, the Squid. On today’s episode, 3 more lucky people will be nominated to join our quote campaign and you will get to see 3 more of my favorite quotes. *canned applause*
“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”
It’s day one of the rest of my life, day one of the rest of my life! I’m marching on to the beat of, a brand new drum, yeah, here I come, the future has begun, day one!
Sorry, Matthew West reference. I couldn’t help myself.
The wondrous Allie M. from The Wondrous Life of Allie M. nominated me for a 3 Day Quotes Challenge! The rules are to post 1-3 quotes each day for 3 days, and each day nominate 3 people. So, here goes nothing! 😀
I have found in my own life, at least, that C. S. Lewis had it right. Plus the style of the picture is so elegant! 🙂
Which is sadly what is happening right now.
Of course, I’d be insulted! Wouldn’t you? 😀
So that’s all for today, but today’s nominees are… *drumroll*
I’m not going to write a long post about Valentine’s Day, instead I’ll simply share a quote from Grammarly.com…
You can’t blame gravity for falling in love. Albert Einstein
Also I’m going to recommend an absolutely hilarious video by YouTube comedians Studio C. I can’t recall the exact name, but if you search “valentines day studio c” on YouTube I’m positive it will come up. 🙂
God is love. Luv Is A Verb. (dc Talk)
Love, love, love; Christians this is your call.
A few good things happened, like … the time Mark saw a bird that wasn’t in his small bird book, and Mr. Smith brought a big important one home from the bookshop and Mark looked it up and it turned out to be a blue-gray gnatcatcher, which is very rare, at least at an Indiana lake. This wasn’t very interesting to anyone but Mark, but then there is nothing so boring as bird-watching, except to those people to whom it isn’t boring at all.
I’m rereading one of my favorite children’s books of all time by one of my favorite children’s fantasy authors ever, Edward Eager. The book that this short paragraph is from is titled Magic by the Lake and it is so quaint and charming! I can read one of his books in under an hour, but that is an hour well spent!
Anyway, this quote sums up birdwatching pretty well. Either you love it or you can’t stand it. There is a very small margin. 🙂 Happy birding!
