Some spiral curves in nature, like the golden spiral are logarithmic, and can be approximated by the Fibonacci
Numbers, others are based on other mathematical formulas.
But, BIG POINT is -- NO WAY are these products of some
cosmic evolutionary accident
-- ALL DECLARE THE CERTAIN EXISTENCE, POWER, ELEGANCE AND GLORY OF GOD.
Desperately trying to get spirals to spontaneously generate - End run around God the Creator?
SOME SPIRALS ARE LOGRITHMIC AND ARE CALLED GOLDEN
SPIRALS, BUT THEY CAN BE APPROXIMATED BY THE FABONACCI NUMBERS SERIES
NOTICE THAT THE AREA UNDER EACH PART OF THE CURVE
IS THE SUM OF THE PREVIOUS TWO AREAS - FOLLOWING THE FIBONACCI METHOD APPROXIMATING A GOLDEN CURVE
The sophisticated mathematical designs that we see in the living world go far far beyond these
Look at some of the many web sites on Fibonacci Numbers, Golden spirals,
and Golden ratios and you will see that numbers of petals in flowers usually follow the Fibonacci numbers, so does the angular
positioning of branches around tree trunks, and so does the angle of leaves coming out of a stalk.
All of these and many many other features follow some Fibonacci sequences or some other sophisticated mathematical
Why is it that the number of petals in a flower is often one of the following numbers: 3, 5, 8,
13, 21, 34 or 55? For example, the lily has three petals, buttercups have five of them, the chicory has 21 of them, the daisy
has often 34 or 55 petals, etc. Furthermore, when one observes the heads of sunflowers, one notices two series of curves,
one winding in one sense and one in another; the number of spirals not being the same in each sense. Why is the number of
spirals in general either 21 and 34, either 34 and 55, either 55 and 89, or 89 and 144? The same for pinecones : why do they
have either 8 spirals from one side and 13 from the other, or either 5 spirals from one side and 8 from the other? Finally,
why is the number of diagonals of a pineapple also 8 in one direction and 13 in the other?
Are these numbers the product
of chance? No! They all belong to the Fibonacci sequence: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, etc. (where
each number is obtained from the sum of the two preceding). A more abstract way of putting it is that the Fibonacci numbers
fn are given by the formula f1 = 1, f2 = 2, f3 = 3, f4 = 5 and generally f n+2 = fn+1 + fn . For a long time, it had been
noticed that these numbers were important in nature, but only relatively recently that one understands why. It is a question
of efficiency during the growth process of plants.
The explanation is linked to another famous number, the golden mean,
itself intimately linked to the spiral form of certain types of shell. Let's mention also that in the case of the sunflower,
the pineapple and of the pinecone, the correspondence with the Fibonacci numbers is very exact, while in the case of the number
of flower petals, it is only verified on average (and in certain cases, the number is doubled since the petals are arranged
on two levels)."

THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD, THE FIRMAMENT SHOW HIS HANDIWORK - PSALM 19 BY GOD, KING DAVID
MANY FOLKS WRONGLYSTART TELLING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST WITH THE BIBLE.
THE RIGHTWAY IS TO START WITH CREATION, LIKE GOD DOES IN ROMANS 1.
THEN, go to the Bible.
THE CLEAR WITNESS OF GOD'S EXISTENCE AND
OUR DUTIES TOWARD HIM ARE CLEAR IN CREATION.
CREATION IS GOD'S INITIAL, PRIMARY,
INTERFACE WITH HUMANS.
It is critical to realize what great jeopardy we are in
as unsaved folks.
Thus, the GOSPEL - MEANING, GOOD NEWS - GOD SENT JESUS CHRIST
TO SAVE US, BY FAITH IN HIM -- IS SUCH GOOD NEWS.
15So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
16For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto
salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is
written, The just shall live by faith.
the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19Because that which may be known
of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood
by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were
thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible
man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour
their own bodies between themselves:
changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.
The JFB commentary (BELOW) does a really super job in explaining
the above passage and is well worth reading. (Especially verse 20 comments)
The 1871 publication date is very desirable in getting "pre-Darwin" brains, or, mind
setsin the commentators. (Unpolluted by evolutionary foolishness)
15. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also—
He feels himself under an all-subduing obligation to carry the gospel to all classes of mankind, as adapted to and ordained
equally for all (1Co 9:16).
The rest of Romans 1:
this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against
27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural
use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves
that recompence of their error which was meet.
even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which
are not convenient;
29Being filled with all unrighteousness,
fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,
31Without understanding, covenantbreakers,
without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure
in them that do them.
