Inventions vs. biology

No one of us lived 150 years ago or more. So no one of us has witnessed how life formed. In order to understand it, we must base our conclusions on interpretations of data we have.

Below is a table of some observed similarities of invented devices and biological objects. This table does not contain interpretations. You are free to interpret this yourself.

You can read my interpretation here.

    The point is obvious if you have eyes and a brain that functions.

    Romans 1:20
    For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
