Man's Indiscriminate Stealing of God's Amazing Design
Science shamelessly steals from God’s creation, yet refuses to give God the glory!

- A fly’s ear, the lizard’s foot, the moth’s eye, and other natural examples are inspiring improvements and new technologies in our lives
Engineers and inventors have long examined God’s creation to understand and copy complex, proven mechanics of design in the science known as biomimicry. Much of this inspiration is increasingly drawn from amazing aspects of nature, including insects to plants to man in search of wisdom and insight. We are surrounded daily by scientific advancements that have become everyday items, simply because man is copying from God’s incredible creation, without acknowledging the Creator.
This is a well-researched and beautifully written study showing the brilliant intricacy of God’s design as revealed in nature. Look anywhere in creation and you will see vivid evidence of God’s “invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature . . . clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made” (Romans 1:20-ESV). This book is also a graphic reminder that “there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9-ESV), because even the cleverest, most innovative ideas of modern human ingenuity are actually features borrowed from the amazing work of God in creation.

Every page of this fascinating work prompts my heart to acknowledge and praise the infinite wisdom of our God. It is full of facts and illustrations that puncture the smug arrogance of atheistic materialism. Here is a clear and convincing answer to those who think modern science somehow justifies unbelief.
