Creationists are now beginning to embrace the Design argument. If biology is Intelligently Designed, it stands to reason the designs can be used to teach humans how to construct designs. The implications of ID are not purely religious. This fact is often forgotten.
The presumption that biology is mostly cobbled together junk is a hindrance to medical and technological advancement. What benefit is there in viewing biology as cobbled together mistakes that happen to be reproductively selected for? None of any consequence. But if biology is truly designed by a mind beyond anything we can comprehend, we can learn engineering from the all-wise creator himself.
To that end, here is a book written by creationists describing the discovery of such designs by God:
Discovery of Design.
From the frontiers of scientific discovery, researchers are now taking design elements from the natural world and creating extraordinary breakthroughs that benefit our health, our quality of life, our ability to communicate, and even help us work more efficiently.
An exciting look at cutting-edge scientific advances, Discovery of Design highlights incredible examples that include:
How things like batteries, human organ repair, microlenses, automotive engineering, paint, and even credit card security all have links to natural designs
Innovations like solar panels in space unfurled using technology gleaned from beech tree leaves, and optic research rooted in the photonic properties of opal gemstones
Current and future research from the fields of stealth technology, communications, cosmetics, nanotechnology, surveillance, and more!
Take a fantastic journey into the intersection of science and God’s blueprints for life – discovering answers to some of the most intricate challenges we face. Experience this powerful apologetics message in a multi-purpose resource as a personal enrichment tool or as an educational supplement.
