Summary: We look at some lessons from nature and compare to how God desires us to build people!Nevr give up on people!
BUMBLE BEES, COCKROACHS, AND PEOPLE...
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
DID YOU KNOW IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE BUMBLE BEE TO FLY?
THERE IS A BRANCH OF DYNAMICS THAT DEALS WITH THE MOTION OF THE AIR and the forces that
act and can cause flight. The aerodynamics of the bumble bee are not suited for flying. In proportion to wing size and body size, the Bee’s body is simply not suited for flight. The bee is too short and fat, and the wings are not long enough to support flight.
But God made the Bumble Bee and told it to fly, and it has flown every since.
We have honey because the bumble bee can fly.
Aren’t you glad a bumble bee can’t understand human language? We would tell the bumble bee, baby doll,
you are too fat to fly? And when we convinced bees, they would be grounded and there would be no honey?
If you place a bumble bee in a glass or a jar, it feels so trapped and it will walk and crawl around until it dies.
All the bubble bee would have to do is look up and fly out the top, but no it will die, trapped, looking down to the bottom for an escape. There is an escape, the bubble bee can fly out the top, but it’s entrapment will bring death, because the bee will look down, not up.
THANK GOD THAT COCKROACHES DON’T KNOW?
I can’t believe it, but some people have cockroaches for pets?
A cockroach is of the suborder of Blattodea. Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal, or of the night.
DID YOU KNOW A COCKROACH CAN FLY?
But most cockroaches never fly, they only fly when they have to, like when they are falling off a counter.
Cockroaches don’t know they can fly and I am so glad. But why don’t they fly?
MAKE A BUZZARD A PRISONER?
You can build a 6 feet by 8 feet pen, fence on all four sides, and leave the top open, and put a buzzard in the pen, and the buzzard will be imprisoned until death. Sure the buzzard could at any time fly out the top, the buzzard could climb up the side of the pen to freedom, but the buzzard has a habit, the buzzard runs 10 to 12 feet then the buzzard will fly. If you restrict the running space the buzzard will never fly, but he could just take off and fly away.
A small pen makes the buzzard give up. Why buzzard?
THERE IS A BIRD NAMED THE LILY TROTTER.
There is a bird that lives in warm climates named the Lily Trotter. It is a beautiful bird. It walks from lily pad to lily pad pecking for food in the shallow water. The Lily Trotter is capable of flight. Lily Trotters can soar at heights almost like the eagle. But most Lily Trotters spend their life jumping from Lily Pad to Lily Pad.
As a whole they will only use their wings to fly less than 20 feet at a time. Why Lily Trotter?
BATS ON THE LEVEL?
There is an interesting animal that many people needless fear, THE BAT! Did you know a bat is a mammal?
Bats are of the order of Chiroptera. Bats are nocturnal, and help humans very much. Bats eat many, many insects.
Bats have wings that are made up of four elongated digits. Bats depend on an echolocation system to guide them in flight. But a bat cannot take off from a level place. If you place a bat on a level floor or on level ground, they just hop around in pain, the bat must find a place with at least a small angular distance, then the bat will fly away.
