What’s surprised you this week?
Last Saturday I read that a Nevada state law was approved which will allow people to own and operate driverless cars. A driverless car is a vehicle equipped with an autopilot system, which is capable of driving from one point to another without input from a human operator.
The proposed advantages include:
* to avoid accidents
* increase safety by eliminating driver error.
* increasing roadway capacity by reducing the distances between cars
* reduce congestion by efficiently controlling the flow of traffic
* relieving vehicle occupants from driving and navigating chores, so allowing them to concentrate on other tasks like talking on the phone or texting or to rest during their journeys.
You might have see them in Knight Ridder, I Robot & Batman. Now they will be on the streets of Nevada.
For the last few decades millions of dollars have been poured into aviation research.
In Europe millions were spent developing Concord – a commercial aircraft that could fly faster than the speed of sound.
In the USA a huge team of scientists and engineers developed the space shuttle. Another team developed the stealth bomber that is specially designed to be invisible to radar systems.
But did you know there’s a flying machine that incorporates such amazing technology, that is advanced way beyond anything they have developed with all those megabrains and megabucks.
This machine can take off and land sideways on a vertical surface. In terms of maneuverability there’s nothing to touch it.
It can take off with such astounding acceleration, and has such a sophisticated early warning system, that if it senses an enemy attack while on the ground it can take off and be out of range within in a fraction of a second. I managed to get a picture of one these things to show you. Would you like to see it?
You saw them today, FLIES
Did all that technology – way beyond anything our science has developed, come into being by accident – random processes triggered by a big bang?
It’s a crazy idea, and yet that’s what many people believe. But surely anybody with an ounce of sense, and an open mind, should be able to see that the amazing technology found in nature is clear evidence of the God who designed and created everything.
“Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge!
How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!
For who can know the Lord’s thoughts?
Who knows enough to give him advice?
And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back
For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory.
All glory to him forever! Amen.” ~~ Romans 11:33-36
