I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14 (NIV)

I love it when science declares the glory of God. This video bears witness to the fact that we are indeed “fearfully and wonderfully made” by a Designer who knows no bounds.

This video it pretty amazing. It was created by Alexander Tsiaras, a former Associate Professor of Medicine and Chief of Scientific Visualization at Yale University. In addition to the video itself being amazing, I am quite surprised that it was presented at an INK Conference.

Just a bit of info about INK: INK (which stands for Innovation and Knowledge) is an organizational offshoot of TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design). TED’s website describes the organization as “a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.” They sponsor semiannual conferences bringing the best and brightest in a variety of fields to speak in short segments (as in eighteen minutes short). Neither TED nor INK are Christian based. Yet in 1998 they invited Billy Graham to speak. You can watch the video of Billy’s speech here. He was given 26 minutes as the closing speaker and his message differs from any other I’ve heard him give…yet it is also the same, because he did a wonderful and totally culturally appropriate job of presenting the Gospel to the “best and brightest” assembled at the conference. Worth listening to.

In 2010, Mr. Tsiaras spoke at the INK conference and presented this video. The focus of the video is the visualization of life from conception to birth (and beyond) – well worth the trip! His discussions before and after the video are just as compelling. “It was hard not to attribute divinity to it,” Tsiaras says. “The magic of the mechanisms inside each genetic structure saying exactly where that nerve cell should go — the complexity of these mathematical models – of how these things are indeed done – is beyond human comprehension. Even though I am a mathematician…I look at this with marvel…it’s a mystery, it’s magic, it’s divinity.”

To God be the glory, great things He hath done! (from the hymn by Fanny Crosby)
