Made In Heaven: Man's Indiscriminate Stealing of God's Amazing Design by Ray Comfort & Jeffrey Seto is a full color book of popular science topics for students. The quality presentation of this book rivals that of many popular science themed books for children which are becomming more popular with today's young readers. From the cover that features a close up of the scales underneath a neon colored frog to the graphics, photos and text- this book is sure to capture the attention of any young reader interested in science. Color photographs, highlighted text and illustrated charts make this an inviting book for young school aged readers. This is especially important in order to draw in the reader and to reach out to secular readers. A book such as this, will certainly peak the interest of the reader to the concepts of God, creation and faith.
Each full color, two page spread of the book briefly covers a specific animal or element in nature and how it results in better and more advanced technology. The book surveys over 30 differnt inventions and technologies and how their design was inspired by something completely natural. For example the concept of futuristic body armor is based on the simple, yet complex fish scale. In turn, the strength and complexity of the fish scale bears testament to the creativity and wisdom if God. The strength and composition of a spider web has been useful in producing super strong materials. In fact the thread of a spider's web has a stronger PSI than Titanium. The functions of the wings of a butterfly and the color properties of its microscopic reflective scales can be applied to the technology used on paper currency to deter counterfits. In fact, the polymer technology on the dollar bills is not even as advanced as that found naturally on the butterfly's wings! Sharp, detailed color photographs accompany the text to illustrate the complexities of the butterfly wings! This glimpse into the microscopic details of technology gives us insight into the complexities and wonder of God's creation. The authors also show that where scientists fall short or get stuck, then the solution can be found through a careful look at God's natural creations. Even a simple object such as a flower or a wing have microscopic complexities beyond imagination. Principles and physics formulas find their basis in God's designs. This is not simply abook of useless trivia and facts but rather it tells a story of how science and nature are created by an intelligent creator. So many people: teachers, scientists and professionals claim that science disporves the existance of God. Yet, this book shows otherwise.
