THE EVIDENCE FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD PART 5. One square centimeter of skin contains: 6,000,000 cells 100 sweat glands 10 sebaceous glands (secretes sebum (usually into a hair follicle) for lubricating hair and skin. 5,000 sensory corpuscles 200 glands 25 pressure points
1. Outer layer know as the epidermis. The upper part of this layer is dead and is constantly being replaced with new cells. This layer also controls what color our skin will be.
2. The lower layer is called the dermis, which a spongy, leathery area that acts like a protective cushion for the body. This layer is where the hair follicles, glands, nerve endings, capillaries and lymphatic vessels are located. Though we touch with out outer layer, it is actual this lower layer that detects the sense of touch and sends that information to our brain.
The skin acts like a radiator because 1/3 of the body’s blood circulates through it which helps regulate our body temperature.
the most complex and orderly arrangement of matter in the universe.
The human brain weighs about 3 pounds and can be broken up into three main areas:
The information content of the human brain expressed in bits is probably comparable to the total number of connections among the neurons – about a hundred trillion. If written out in English, that information would fill some twenty million volumes, as many as in the word’s largest libraries. The equivalent of twenty million books is inside the heads of everyone of us. The brain is a very big place in a very small space.
Many researchers think of the brain as a computer. This comparison is inadequate. Even the most sophisticated computers that we can envision are crude compared to the almost infinite complexity and flexibility of the human brain (Pines).
I am left with no choice by to acknowledge the existence of a Superior Intellect, responsible for the design and development of the incredible brain-mind relationship – something far beyond man’s capacity to understand.
To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances [unmatched abilities] for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration [An optical aberration in which the image has colored fringes] could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest sense.
The eye is a marvelous instrument, resembling a telescope of the highest quality, with a lens, an adjustable focus, a variable diaphragm for controlling the amount of light, and optical corrections for spherical and chromatic aberration. The eye appears to have been designed; no designer of telescopes could have done better. How could this marvelous instrument have evolved by chance, through a succession of random events?
… there seems to be no direct proof that evolution can work these miracles … it is hard to accept the evolution of the eyes as a product of chance.
Images of light enter the eyes at 186,000 miles per second through the iris, which opens and shuts like a diaphragm of a camera to let just the right amount of light in. Then the image is focused by the lens of the eye upside down on the retina at the rear of the eyeball. That image is picked up by some 137 million nerve endings, which sends the information to the brain at 300 miles an hour for processing.
Proverbs 20:12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made them both.
Psalm 139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
The most elaborate communication system every devised.
Transmission of information within the nervous system is more complex that the largest telephone exchanges.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed

The first capability is that this beetle has two separate sacks that keep the chemicals separate until the beetle needs the chemical to protect itself.
The second capability is that the beetle has an asbestos type lining in his "firebox" in which the chemicals are added. This "firebox" lining keeps the chemical explosion from destroying the body of the beetle when it explodes outward.
Third the beetle pulsates his stream in tiny, continuous droplet pulsation.
Fourth, he can also aim his protective blast in different directions.
The reason they bubble is because they have about 10,000 tiny holes so that the developing chick can breathe and remove waste from the egg.
