Some months ago I put up a post about how mind-bogglingly brilliant animals and plants are assumed to have been as they pushed themselves up the Evolutionary tree. Today I was reading Answers in Genesis’ News to Note and ran into this quote from PHYSorg:
Dr Roberts said: “We believe these species of fish have evolved this particular multilayer structure to help conceal them from predators, such as dolphin and tuna. These fish have found a way to maximize their reflectivity over all angles they are viewed from. This helps the fish best match the light environment of the open ocean, making them less likely to be seen.”As a result of this ability, the skin of silvery fish could hold the key to better optical devices. Tom Jordan said: “Many modern day optical devices such as LED lights and low loss optical fibres use these non-polarizing types of reflectors to improve efficiency. However, these man-made reflectors currently require the use of materials with specific optical properties that are not always ideal. The mechanism that has evolved in fish overcomes this current design limitation and provides a new way to manufacture these non-polarizing reflectors.”
Will you look at that! These fish thought in advance how they could change their skin to turn themselves practically invisible. The design the fish came up with works so well we are doing our best to figure out how it works so we can copy them.
Let us praise, honor, and worship the true designer: our great Creator God!!!
And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. Revelation 5:13
