The Elephant’s Trunk: An Elegant Multi-Purpose Tool

The elephant's trunk is an elegant multi-purpose tool. Joel Kontinen The elephant’s trunk is an elegant multi-purpose tool. It can move and pick up both huge objects and tiny ones and anything in between as well. A recent study conducted by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta featuring a captive African elephant called Kelly shows just how effective this tool is. They offered Kelly four different kinds of food, of different sizes – powdered bran, cubed bran, cubed…

Strong, Smart and Small: Tiny Molecules Can Build Huge Structures

Plants can be amazingly strong. Joel Kontinen Some materials found in nature can be astonishingly strong. Just think of a spider’s web, for instance. A recent example is a smart “glue” that keeps a plant’s cell walls together. Science Daily summarises the findings of a paper published in the journal Nature Communications: “Molecules 10,000 times narrower than the width of a human hair could hold the key to making possible wooden skyscrapers and more energy-efficient paper production…

Intelligently Designed Zebra Tail Is An Amazingly Effective Fly Swatter

The zebra tail can swing really fast. Joel Kontinen How do zebras and giraffes keep flies and mosquitoes away? They resort to a clever trick: they swing their tails “three times faster than a gravity-driven pendulum.” Writing in Science, Elizabet Pennisi goes on to say: “The tail works like a double pendulum in that it swishes from where it sticks out of the butt and then from another pivot point where the bone and skin part of the tail ends and the hair begins … Because of that second…

Jumping Genes: New Function for Junk DNA

Not only wallabies and kangaroos can do it. Some genes can do it also. Joel Kontinen Evolutionists used to dismiss them us junk, as useless leftovers from the assumed millions of years of blind Darwinian processes. Roughly ten per cent of our genome consists of Alu sequences or small repetitive elements known as jumping genes. According to an EurekAlert! article: “They were considered for a long time as ‘junk’ DNA, because, although they are transcribed into RNA, they encode no proteins and…

Intelligent Design in the Sand and in Us

The results of natural processes or intelligence? Joel Kontinen Wind, waves and erosion can produce interesting features on a sandy beach. However, occasionally we might stumble upon structures that were probably designed and produced by intelligence. Take a sandcastle, for instance. It is a rather simple structure but few would claim that natural processes could ever produce it, even if they had a few million years in which to accomplish it by trial and error. Yet many still claim that much…

Signs of Design

Seeing a man carving sand is a clear sign of intentional activity. Joel Kontinen Natural sand formations can be rather spectacular. However, if one sees something that looks a bit like a dragon with scales, one might suspect that erosion is not the designer – especially if one happens to see a man adding the finishing touches to the sculpture. It is not all all difficult to see what is deliberately designed and what isn't. In like manner, design in nature is obvious. Our cells are full of…
