Penguins with Sunglasses (Part 2 of 2)
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we look at how God’s gift to penguins can help people see better!
Scientists have now developed an orange-colored dye and filter that duplicates the penguin’s retinal fluid. The dye has been used to produce orange-tinted sunglasses which provide improved vision in bright sunlight and on foggy days.
According to Donald DeYoung’s book Discovery of Design, many welders now use orange-colored masks that are safer and more transparent than the old-style dark masks that made it difficult for them to see. There is also the hope that orange-tinted glasses may someday help patients suffering from visual loss due to cataracts or macular degeneration.
When engineers and designers look at nature to design new products and product improvements, they are looking at intelligent designs, not the products of chance and billions of years. The “sunglasses” worn by penguins were put there by our all-wise Creator!
