Good day to all! Did you of you fare well this past week? It was a slightly less busy week for me so I was able to catch about two breaths more, lol! One day when I was working at the zoo, we had a ferocious storm with a flash of lighting that was still brilliant when the crack of its thunder resounded, booming all around. It felt as if the lighting had struck right next to me! Praise God that no one was hurt.
Did you know that all living things have electrical fields? Scientists know that the transmission of nerve impulses is electromagnetic, occurring on a cellular level. They alsoknow that blood return is managed by electromagnetic processes as is oxygen uptake, and the bodies way to determine immunology. Scientists also know that cancer is caused by increased electromagnetic activity of the cells.
When most people hear about life and an electric field, however, probably is not what is mentioned above. Most likely what comes to mind are well known animals such aselectric eels, sharks and dolphins, birds that fly in a “V” formation, and other animals that migrate. But did you know that plants also have an electric field? All plants from the largest and tallest trees, to moss and lichens have this trait. Even something as delicate and beautiful as a flower.
Why would the Creator use electric currents in living matter? Well, I touched on a few above, but none of that has to do with plants. Let’s take a look at flowers. Flowers give off a low electrical field. This helps to attract pollinators. For example “Bumblebees feed on nectar from flowers. It is thus advantageous for them to find flowersefficiently, expending as little energy as possible when searching for food…The body hairs of bumblebees possess a unique ability, in that they are sensitive to electrical fields, specifically, those produced by flowers. In addition to other fine-tuned senses bumblebees possess, including the ability to see ultraviolet light, the body hairs of bumblebees move in response to electrical fields. These hairs, called ‘mechanosensory hairs,’ are connected
Again our Creator, Jesus, has thought of everything even right down to the cellular level. The symbiosis between flowers and the bumblebee is nothing short of extreme intelligent design. Why would you need one without the other? And what would a half electrical field do? It would be useless and according to the theory of evolution would have been discarded long before it reached the amazing state it’s in today.
Once again the physical world in which we live backs up the unaltered truth recorded in the Bible. And gives us a clear picture of just how incredible our God is!
Until next time, God bless and take care,
