Polar bear designer feet inspire engineers (icr.org) Polar bears keep a tight grip on smooth ice using precisely designed footpads. Engineers have copied these exquisite designs. ‘Microscopic examination of polar bear feet reveals… the pads of a polar bear’s foot are covered with small soft papillae [small bumps], which increase friction between the foot and the ice. There are also small depressions in the sole… probably absorb the thin layer of water that covers ice. When the Bridgestone tire company designed their Blizzak ice tire, they used a unique rubber manufacturing process that incorporated similar small depressions… tiny water pockets... But Blizzak tires also use sharp bite particles that dig into the ice like little ice picks… videos of cars driving on ice reveal the result: a tire that can actually grip ice. Of course a God who created the heavens, Earth, sea, and everything in them would be wise enough and more than able to design ice-gripping bear paw pads… He also deserves credit for making man in His image, so that we can use our God-given wisdom to study and benefit from His excellent designs.’
POLAR BEAR ~ OPERATION ARCTIC
Blizzard the polar bear and friends helps teach kids the Bible is unique at Operation Arctic (Answers in Genesis VBS 2017). Even though this resource is for purchase, it has an important message and that is why I have listed it. Check it out. Every day, our kids are bombarded with the message that the Bible isn’t the true Word of God, that it can’t be trusted to tell us the truth about the past or, more importantly, about how we can receive the gift of eternal life. At Operation Arctic VBS, your kids will warm up to the Word as they explore the coolest Book on the planet and discover how we can know for sure that the Bible is God’s written word to us. Grab your parka and snow boots! We’re headed deep into the stunning Arctic Circle that is filled with treasure and thrilling to explore. And be sure to pack your Bible—we’ll be learning all about that breathtakingly beautiful Book that is filled with treasure and thrilling to explore! Let’s plunge on in to this cold world and God’s wonderful Word! Operation Arctic promises be a flurry of fun and excitement! Let’s go!
