Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
Most of us know that the inspiration for Velcro came from the common burdock plant's annoying stick-to-you seed pods, but few of us realize nature inspires many innovations for man.
Discovery of Design: Searching Out the Creator’s Secrets is the subject (and title of his book) of November's Creation Science Society of Milwaukee meeting, presented by Physicist Dr. Donald DeYoung.
His talk will be held on Tuesday, November 30th, 7:15 PM, at Grace Bible Church, 2643 South 117th Street, West Allis, Wisconsin, (414) 541-4252 (Across from Nathan Hale High School sports fields on 117th, just north of Cleveland Avenue.) It is free and open to the general public. Dr. DeYoung will also discuss Astronomy and Creation that night.
From the Creations Science Society of Milwaukee:
borrowing design from nature
What do dog paws, geckos, giraffes, horse bones and penguin eyes have in common?
They’ve all been the inspiration behind products that we take for granted today, according to physicist Donald DeYoung, Ph.D. – products ranging from shoe soles, adhesives and antigravity spacesuits to construction materials and sunglasses.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, says Dr. DeYoung, who is a professor, author and current president of the Creation Research Society (CRS), a 1700-member international group that funds research and publishes a peer-reviewed scientific journal. The fact is, the designs of nature are so perfect for their purpose that they have inspired countless innovations over the years.
This phenomenon is one of the topics Dr. DeYoung will present to the Creation Science Society of Milwaukee. ...For this part of his talk, he will draw from his fascinating book Discovery of Design: Searching Out the Creator’s Secrets
I found this interesting, "They say that if you’re looking for a scholar to debate a creationist, don’t bother asking the Physics Department – physicists tend to side with Creation Science."
Dr. Donald DeYoung chairs the Science and Mathematics Department of Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana.
Don't forget to mark your calendar for Sunday and Monday, January 30th and 31st when Ken Ham and Jason Lyle from Answers in Genesis come to Brookside Baptist Church in Brookfield to hold an Answers in Genesis Conference in our area. .
