THINK SPOT:  Have you ever stopped to pick up a feather, spread it open and thought about how all the colours in each feather have to ‘grow’ into place in order to perfectly line up and make their pretty patterns, right from DNA level, before even one feather has started to grow?

BIBLE VERSES

Job 12:7  But ask now the beasts and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air and they shall tell thee. Or speak to the earth and it shall teach thee; and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD has wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

Isaiah 40:31  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Matthew 10:29-31  Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 6:25-26  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are ye not much better than they?

Jeremiah 8:7  Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

Job 35:11  Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, and makes us wiser than the fowls of heaven?

THINK SPOT

Question:  Which came first? The chicken or the egg?
Answer:  The chicken… why? Without the chicken there is no egg. Therefore, the chicken had to be CREATED. God made every living thing – both plants and animals with the seed in itself to reproduce after its KIND. Genesis 1:11-22

BIRDS ~ SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION / GOD’S EXQUISITE DESIGNS

The Intricacies of Flight  (answersingenesis) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; flight needs four things: (1) correct wing shape to give a lower air pressure on the upper surface; (2) large enough wing area to support the weight; (3) some means of propulsion or gliding; and (4) extra surfaces, or a means of altering the main surfaces, in order to change direction and speed… A feather is a marvel of lightweight engineering. Though light, it is very wind-resistant. This is because there is a clever system of barbs and barbules with hooks on one side and ridged barbules on the other. Thus an ingenious mechanism exists for keeping the surface flexible and yet intact… on either side of the barb are further tiny barbules which can only be seen under a microscope… On one side of the barb ridged barbules will emerge, while on the other side, the barbules will have hooks… The hooks and ridges act like Velcro, but go one stage further, since the ridges allow a sliding joint, and there is thus an ingenious mechanism for keeping the surface flexible and yet intact. The next time you see a flight feather on the ground, remember it is a marvel of lightweight, flexible, aerodynamic engineering.

The stunning beauty of a Peacock Tail  (creation.com) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; bright iridescent colours, intricate patterns and fan formation show a very sophisticated design. A single peacock eye feather (1.3 metre long) was examined under a microscope at Bristol University. They discovered nearly 1 million barbules being held together by 290 barbs. In just ONE feather!

Scientific structure of feathers  (creation.com) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; feathers are complex, designed structures required for flight. These precision-designed structures are highly effective, yet extremely light, insulators that are designed to enable birds to fly. Bird wing feathers themselves are ‘one of the most beautifully designed structures in the world’. Feathers have such ‘striking diversity in size, shape, colours, and texture’ that very few human art masterpieces can compare with them in harmony of colours, liveliness and softness. Often copied but never equaled, the beauty in pattern and colours of feathers has been appreciated by humans the world over; share a snippet with your child.

It’s a bird, not a plane  (answersingenesis) Even modern airplanes don’t fly like our feathered friends – feathers, flexible wings, hollow bones, tail; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Birds – designed differently  (answersingenesis) for soaring, gliding, speeding, darting

Birds – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) scroll down the list for information on various kinds of birds – toucan, parrot, duck and other water birds, cassowary, finch, birds of prey, turkey and more; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Birds – family devotion  (answersingenesis) Today’s advanced airplanes are impressive marvels of engineering. But even with all the brainpower that goes into those flying machines, they’re pretty primitive compared to the elegance of birds in flight. Here’s the Deal. The incredible design of birds points to the Designer—God!

Murmuration – the scientific background of Shape-shifting Flocks  (creation.com) Have you ever watched a large flock of birds doing their impression of a roller coaster and wondered how they fly so swiftly and stay so close together, morphing into different shapes? Other animals do it too, like fish and bees. This ability has puzzled scientists for a long time. Even complex algorithmic models hadn’t explained these aerobatics, which rely on the tiny birds’ quicksilver reaction time of under 100 milliseconds to avoid aerial collisions and predators. After studying flocks of starlings, scientists concluded: “… each starling is continuously computing the positions of an average of six or seven of its neighbours, regardless of how far away they are… having a pre-programmed, numeric, object-tracking ability…” Share a snippet with your child (or a simple explanation for a younger child) about these amazing Creator-designed aerobatics.

Birds of the Bible  (leesbird) view photographs and information of many birds our Great Creator has made, then share a snippet with your child

Owl in flight ~ slow motion  (short video) This is superb. MAGNIFICENT! The camera is slowed down to 1000 hypnotic frames a second as the owl lands right in front of the camera. Look at the power here and how the wings subtly change shape as he comes in for landing. Aircraft engineers are amateurs in comparison to God’s exquisite designs. Be in awe of our Creator. Share this awe with your child… enjoy!

TAKE A TWO-MINUTE HOLIDAY ~ AND BE IN AWE OF OUR CREATOR

God of wonders DVD – listen to the awe in the voices of these scientists who take the Bible seriously. The whole documentary is fabulous but in this short segment, they discuss the wonders of flight. Birds are engineering marvels, compelling evidence for an an incredible Creator… Just think about all the controls inside an airplane needed to fly. All of that is packed inside a tiny bird. The bones of birds are lightweight and virtually hollow. Inside, they are supported by struts and honeycombed with air sacs. They are designed so efficiently that their feathers usually weigh more then their entire skeleton. Feathers are a masterpiece of design, combining strength and lightness. Some birds fly every year between the north pole and the south pole. Each species is specially equipped for their role to man and has a special area of patrol – controlling insects, removing carcasses, keeping seeds under control; keeping rodents in check; others patrol the beaches, keeping them clean. Water birds maintain the proper balance in fish population. The heron in frog and snake control. Graceful, amazing aerodynamic abilities and practical, each bird is a testimony for God’s wisdom and love. Share the wonders of God’s designs with your child.

DID YOU KNOW:  All birds have their own distinctive personalities like humans and other animals. Just ask any pet owner. I once witnessed a small bird grieving for his soul mate so badly that he was at risk of death himself. He completely lost all interest in life, even with other birds around him, slowly recovering after several weeks, but he was never quite the same after that.

    • Wow! Really?! You made my day! That is exactly what I want it to be. To bring glory to God. Our Creator is absolutely MAGNIFICENT! The more I learn about His designs the more my jaw drops. Tonight, I’ve been listening to a PhD creation scientist talking about the complexity of the human genome. I’m definitely going to have to post that one. Thanks for stopping by, Susan. Blessings. :)

  7. Last week I got to help take a class of middle school children to Wildlife Images in Grants Pass, Oregon, a wildlife rehabilitation facility where they rehabilitate injured wildlife, A large flock of ravens live in the tree tops near the Grizzly bear, black bear and wolf enclosures. The ravens have learned that they can steal food from these animals at feeding time. I was fascinated to learn that many years ago, a raven tried to steal food from the large male grizzly bear who is kept in a separate enclosure. The grizzly killed the raven with one swipe of its large paw. That knowledge has been passed on from one generation of ravens to the next and the next. Ever since, not a single raven has ever entered that bear’s enclosure. They continue to steal food from the other animals, but they all know to leave that grizzly bear alone. I always thought they just squawked, but apparently they have a way of communicating all their own.
