PROTEIN ANALYSIS:-Protein analysis is an enormous job. "In our eyes, a protein called a lens crystalline helps to build the lens," notes Ewan Burney, team leader of the European Bioinformatics Institute in Cambridge. "Yet its virtually the same as alcohol dehydrogenase, the protein that digests alcohol in the liver." The eye protein is so similar that it can degrade alcohol in a test tube." New Scientist Magazine ... May 20, 2000.

SOAP BUBBLES:-When four soap bubbles meet, why are they designed to form in a particular way and no other? "They meet in pairs along six common surfaces at an angle of 109º. If a fifth bubble is trapped at the common intersection, it distorts into a rounded pyramid. 
    Exactly the same shape with the correct angles can be seen in the silica skeleton of the diminutive organism Callimitra agnesae, a nasselarian (a microscopic marine creature). This hardly looks like a coincidence."  ... Ian Stewart
    Radiolarians (microscopic marine creatures) also exhibit-diverse mathematical designs dodecahedral, icosahedral, and octahedral, mimicking-Euclid's regular solids.

DATING METHODS:-The five main approaches are, Dendrochronology, Obsidian Hydration Dating, Radiocarbon-14-(a radiometric dating formula), and TL Dating, and Varve Analysis:

TREES:-Dendrochronology:-the counting of tree rings dates. The Great Basin Bristlecone is believed to be one of the oldest trees at over 4000 years. 
    A giant Redwood's rings have been counted to be over 2500 years old. The Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) in California are over 318 feet tall having trunk diameters over 25 feet! The tallest is 369.75 feet. They are growing today, adding annually to their rings, and no doubt, will carry on growing for as long as man will be here. They are living proof of their dated beginning.
    But, there is a maximum: due to the characteristics God engineered into the tree, they can only achieve a height of 426 feet (130m) due to the transporting of water.
    If, as evolutionists claim, the living Earth is older, the age of trees pose interesting questions.

Obsidian is usually black or banded, hard volcanic glass that displays shiny, curved surfaces when fractured and is formed by rapid cooling of lava. Obsidian Hydration Dating estimates dates based upon measurement of the thickness of a rim that was produced through evaporation of water (vapour) that is made to seep into obsidian creations.

TL Dating-(Thermoluminescence Dating):-is based on the phenomenon of natural ionizing radiation inducing free electrons in a mineral that can be trapped in defects of the mineral's crystal lattice structure. Since this method assumes a constant background level of radiation, its accuracy is in question.

Varve Analysis:-Sediment sequentially deposited in a body of still water over a one year period, causing a series of layers. From this, a rate of sedimentation, measured in 'units per year' is divided by the number of units deposited. This method leaves out the dynamic forces which have affected the planet in the past.

SAND DOLLARS:-Sand Dollars exhibit specialized design. Their desing is pefect for both their sustenance and continuance: "Sand dollars have moveable spines much like sea urchins, but these spines are smaller and more numerous, forming a dense felt covering over the entrire animal. Among these spines are many small pedicellaria (tiny, three jawed appendages on long flexible stalks) that are used to keep the body clean...Some species cover themselves completely with sand...Sand dollars burrow in sand or soft sediments...Different species burrow differently, but in all cases the the spines move the sand grains (symmetry with diversity)...Fine food particles drop between the spines and are moved to the margins of the body and then down the oral surface of the animal. Here, a set of five radiating, and sometimes branching, food groves lined with specialized suckered tube feet act as conveyor belts that transport the food particles toward the mouth located at the centre of the oral surface." ...Nature Canada Magazine, Spring, 2000. 

MOLES:-"One species, the (blind) star nosed mole, has taken a sensitive snout beyond any other animal. Twenty two writhing tentacles at the tip of its nose make it look like a living sea anemone has been glued to its face. Supercharged with nerve endings, this star shaped appendage has a similarly shaped area in the brain that receives and processes its tactile information. To become the world's best digging animals, moles..shoulder and collarbone are joined differently than other mammals, which allows their front legs to splay out to the side...This is an excellent arrangement for tunnel life.-...continues
