Aerodynamics, the science of flight, is a highly complex science. This is because many complex forces are acting on anything in flight. These forces include the power available for flight and drag produced by the flying object. Each of these categories include many additional forces that depend on the shape of the flying object, the shape and length of the wings, the speed and the altitude. This is why, for example, high altitude planes have very long wings.
One critical force that has been under recent study is the turbulence that forms at the tips of the wings. The shorter the wing, the more energy consuming turbulence forms at the tip of the wing. Different wing designs have been tried to decrease this turbulence. Engineers have had some success reducing this turbulence with winglets. You may have seen these small vertical wings on the wingtips of some airplanes. Swiss researchers have been studying vultures with the hope of finding a better solution to this problem because vultures have a relatively short wing span that has proven to be surprisingly efficient. They discovered that this is because the feathers at the vultures' wing tips spread out. They then tested a wing with a finger-like cascade of blades at the end. Their new wing was more than four times more efficient than the average wing design in use today! It takes a great deal of faith in evolution to think that natural selection possesses such knowledge of aerodynamics. Clearly the vulture was designed by an intelligent Creator who understands aerodynamics even better than we do! By Creation Moments
Then God said, 'Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.' Genesis 1:20

You are loved. No matter who you are or what you've done, God loves you and wants none to perish. The God of the Bible offers His love and forgiveness. God never turns His back on us.
We ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23-26). Read Is There a God? written by a former atheist. God can only be found by those who seek Him (John 14:6). We can talk to God anywhere at anytime about anything.
By finding a bible-based church and studying the Bible we can guard ourselves from falsehood and false teachers and evaluate any teachings by what the Scriptures say.
Just as one decision can change your life, so can one prayer. In fact, you are one prayer away from a totally different life. None of us is a throwaway person, because no one is ever beyond repair in God's eyes.
GOD IS FOR REAL.

- PROOF OF GOD
Salvation is found in no one else (Jesus), for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
Jesus and Satan were arguing about who was better on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and finally God stepped in. “I will test you on the computer for two hours,” he said. “At the end, I will judge who did a better job.”
So Satan and Jesus sat down and began typing. They wrote reports. They made spreadsheets. They created labels and cards. Charts and graphs. Did a little Photoshop. Even wrote some computer code.
Both were evenly matched. But just before their time was up, lightning flashed across the sky and the power went out. Satan said every curse word he could. Jesus just sighed.
When the electricity returned, Satan rebooted his computer. “It’s all gone! I lost everything!” he screamed. Meanwhile, Jesus started printing out all of his files.
“Wait!” Satan whined. “That's not fair! How did I lose everything and he did not?”
God just shrugged. “Jesus saves.” [Hilarious!]
NOBEL PRIZE WINNER SAYS MAN IS DIVINE CREATION
When he was 17, medical student John Eccles began asking questions about the nature of man, what is thought, and what is the meaning of life? Fifty years later, after he had become one of the world’s greatest experts on the human brain, had become Sir John Eccles and had received the Nobel Prize, he felt free enough to speak out about his studies.
Sir John made it perfectly clear that the purely materialistic and evolutionary definition of man simply isn’t supported by science. He pointed out that his research has helped us describe in great detail what happens in the brain, nerves and muscles when you decide to move your finger.
But, he says, there is no material event that describes how this complex sequence of actions gets started. Man, he concludes, is more than tissue. Man has a non-material mind.
Spiritual truths are spiritually discerned (or understood) and a lost person who does not have the new nature, that the Holy Spirit gives, cannot understand them. Until the Holy Spirit moves in your heart, that heart will remain dead. But hearts remain dead in part through the lies that we tell ourselves, and one of the greatest lies is this: There is “no evidence” that God exists.
Jesus said to Ananias, "Go! Paul is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles..." All Scripture is God-breathed and for our learning (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
The Bible offers the only remedy for sin, suffering, and death. God’s Word presents the only perfect, sinless Savior, the one who died for our sins and rose from the dead. Jesus is the Creator. Jesus said, “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30). Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Jesus promises His followers: “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish” (John 10:28).
Make your choice today. Matthew 7:13-14
Our eternal destiny will be determined by our choice. No sin is worth an eternity in hell. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23-24). Ask God for forgiveness of your sins, believe the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), read the Bible, and find a good Bible-based church to fellowship with other believers.
Rightly Dividing the Word of God. Determine who is writing or speaking, to whom is it speaking, and what are the circumstances.
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Psalm 19:1-6
David did not write Psalm 19 to prove God’s existence. Rather, already captivated and awed by the immensity and beauty of the skies, he simply declares that God exists. Nature proclaims and praises the Creator God, who is worthy of our honor and worship. David reflects on how God has revealed Himself to mankind so that we can know Him. First, God reveals Himself through His created works and then through His spoken Word.

And the Master Artist is...
He Really Loves Me! by Darlene Sala
I'm stunned God willingly paid so much for me to know Him. It's mind-boggling to grasp that Jesus left His Father in heaven to come to this earth as a baby, then die by crucifixion. I can hardly comprehend a love that cost so much.
I can't imagine sacrificing any of my three children to save someone else's life. Yet Peter writes, "For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed ... but with the precious blood of Christ ..." (1 Peter 1:18-19). What love!
What makes it even more costly is God the Father knew He would need to turn away from His son during Jesus' death.
When Jesus was hanging on a wooden cross, God the Father withdrew His presence because of the sin His Son bore on our behalf. Jesus cried out, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46). A great shadow had come between Jesus and the Father. Jesus was excruciatingly alone on that cross because of you and me.
A story from the mission field illustrates a similar kind of love. For years, Dr. Margaret Brand served as a missionary eye surgeon in southern India. In the rural areas she would sometimes do 100 cataract surgeries in a day.
In one instance where there was no electricity, Dr. Brand asked a 12-year-old boy to hold a large flashlight so that its beam gave her enough light to operate. Dr. Brand doubted whether the boy would be able to endure the sight of eyes being sliced open and stitched. For the first five operations he did his job impressively. During the sixth, however, he faltered.
"Little brother, show the light properly," Dr. Brand instructed him. But she could sense that he simply could not bear to look at the eye. When she asked him if he felt well, she saw tears running down his cheeks. "Oh, doctor, I cannot look," replied the boy. "This one, she is my mother."
You see, God loves us so much, "For our sake he made him [Jesus] to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21) when we put our faith in Him. The high price Jesus paid makes us incredibly valuable — no matter how worthless we may feel at the end of the day.Here's another way to look at it. When it comes to placing a value on a piece of art, that value is derived from three things:
• Who made it?
• How many are there like it?
• What is someone willing to pay for it?
You are a priceless work of art. The greatest Artist in the universe hand-crafted you. God gave the life of His only Son to have a relationship with you. That's how valuable you are. I'm clearly a sinner, not holy like God. But God loves me, and He loves you enough to pay an enormous price so that we could have our sins forgiven.
With a word the universe was brought into being. With a touch lepers were healed. But when sin was forgiven, Jesus the Son of God willingly died. What amazing love!
And the focus of that love? YOU and me.
May we pause in this moment to absorb the depth of God's love for us. And may our lives be filled with thankfulness that He was willing to pay the price!
Loving God, help me always remember that my only true worth is found in You. Thank You for the gift of Your Son; thank You for loving me so much that You thought I was worth Christ's life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
