I guess I’m a beachcomber at heart. I really enjoy walking along the ocean and
picking up seashells. Each one is so unique! And yet, even in a seashell we can see
the intricate design of God.
There is a mathematical ratio known as “the golden ratio, also known as the Divine
Proportion or Phi. It is a mathematical ratio with special properties and aesthetic significance.
An enormous number of things in the universe are engineered around the ratio, ranging from
the human body, to the ark of the covenant, to certain seashells, to the orbits of the planets.
The prevalence of the Golden Ratio shows evidence of a common design plan uniting a wide
variety of phenomena which share only their Creator in common.” (see
http://creationwiki.org/Golden_ratio where I got much of this info)
As Joan and I were walking along the beach, I picked up a beautiful brown
seashell. The design on the outside was the golden ratio. Then we saw a group of
dolphins playing in the surf. Dolphin’s bodies are designed according to the golden
ratio. When we returned to the house where we were staying there were some huge
pinecones in the driveway. The spiral design on the pinecone? You guessed it, the
The Psalmist knew what he was talking about when he wrote the above verse…
we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” The human body is designed in the same
ratio proportions… The human head forms a golden rectangle; the mouth and nose are
each placed at golden sections of the distance between the eyes and the bottom of the chin.
Whole body height / head to fingertips = Phi; Top of head to fingertips / head to navel and
elbows = Phi; Length of Forearm / length of hand = Phi… I don’t fully understand it, but
there’s more intricate design in this world than we could ever imagine. We have an amazing
God!! All His “works are wonderful,” as the Psalmist said, “I know that full well!”
Check out the design of the seeds on a sunflower, it’s the same ratio as the knobby
skin of a pineapple… (I could get carried away with this!!)
Thank you, God, for making this such an extraordinary world!
Thanks be to God!!
Because He lives…
