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

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

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.

in defects of the mineral's crystal lattice structure. Since this method
assumes a constant background level of radiation, its accuracy is in question.

measured in 'units per year' is divided by the number of units deposited.

Dollars exhibit specialized design. Their desing is pefect for both their
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
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."
