The Bible tells us that “in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” This week on Home School Heartbeat, Ray Comfort, co-author of the book Made in Heaven: Man’s Indiscriminate Stealing of God’s Amazing Design, shares with host Mike Smith how man has imitated God’s creation.

Mike Smith:
This week, Ray Comfort, who recently co-authored the book Made in Heaven: Man’s Indiscriminate Stealing of God’s Amazing Design, joins us on our program today. Ray, it’s a privilege to have you today!

Ray Comfort:
Well, I’m honored to be with you; thank you for having me on.

Mike:
Ray, you and your fellow co-author Jeffrey Seto wrote Made in Heaven to talk about biomimicry. What is biomimicry, and why is it an important subject for homeschoolers to actually study?

Ray:
Well, it’s when science copies nature’s design—it’s actually not nature’s design, it’s God’s design. There’s a lot of things that we use, that we take for granted, invented by man such as Velcro. Some guy saw this little thing stuck to his dog, and he studied it and thought, I can imitate that! Man has done the same thing with the cat’s eyes; you know cat’s eyes glow in the dark. You know cat’s eyes and the road that help you drive at night? They copied that off of cat’s eyes! And so what I want to do is say, hey, we can see the genius of God’s creative hand in creation; let’s give Him praise, let’s give Him thanks, let’s give Him credit, because God’s the one that invented all these things we see around us.

Mike:
Well, Ray, this is a very fascinating subject and we thank you for sharing with us today. And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
