COMPARING GOD’S DESIGNS TO OUR DESIGNS

How many times do we hear about scientists who were inspired with new breakthroughs in technology after carefully studying the designs of God, The Master Designer? This field of science is called biomimetics. God thought of everything first. All information comes from Him. Even helicopters were designed after someone observed a dragonfly!

It is available in English or French, and compares some of the incredible things that God has designed, to some of the great achievements of mankind. There is nothing original. All information originates with Him! We have freely copied God’s designs for everything. And check out the matching biomimetics freebies.

  • ADD YOUR OWN PHOTOS

Make this article your own ~ add your own photos. Add them before you print the article, draw them in, or you can print out your photos separately and glue them on. Cutting up magazines, taking photos (or using up old ones) are great for this activity. In the top section, put man’s version, e.g. a camera. And in the bottom section, put a corresponding photo of God’s original, in this case, a human eye. Get your own kids involved; and take a photo of them doing it to send to your sponsored child. They will have lots of fun thinking up what God’s originals could be. Make sure to include your child’s photo as one of God’s incredible designs!

PHOTO SUGGESTIONS

Here are some suggestions of things you may like to include in your photo collage if you decide to do your own. Add photos before printing, draw them in, or cut out magazine photos. Whatever you choose, try to find it’s corresponding equivalent in each category, e.g. helicopter – dragonfly; fighter jets – swifts (small birds); fireworks – aurora (or lightning); robot – human; stuffed toy – kitten or puppy. More biomimetics suggestions:

  • MANKIND’S GALLERY ~ robot, artificial hand, aircraft, helicopter, space exploration, electronics, camera, computer, electricity (light bulb), building, artwork, painting, sculpture, fireworks, weaving, fabric, stuffed toy
  • GOD’S GALLERY ~ human body, anatomy diagram of a real human hand, diagram of a human brain; close up of a human face, close up of a human eye, a baby, a hand; snow; mountains; waterfall; lake; river; beach; star; planet; animal; sea creature; bird; butterfly; insect; tree; flower; sunset; aurora; kitten or puppy.

ARTICLE TEXT (SHORT AND SWEET)

Comparing God’s Designs to Ours

Being made in the image of God, humans are very creative and clever. We have accomplished some very impressive things. Let’s look at some of them and then compare them to God’s original designs. Did you know that there is nothing that we have invented that God has not already thought of first?! And done way better! He owns the copyright for everything, including us! Our clumsy designs are all inferior copies of God’s originals. No matter how brilliant, they are a long way from GOD’S EXQUISITE DESIGNS which live and breathe. They are magnificently agile and can even repair and reproduce themselves! They were made by THE Master Designer, so God’s designs have the gift of LIFE!

THANK YOU | MERCI BEAUCOUP
