Beauty, charm and intelligence

Jessica Gomes and a delphin

What is beauty?

The international beauty Jessica Gomes is no random product of lucky mutations. She is a charming human being created by the One who knows what is beauty (even she may herself not know her Creator).

Maybe you laugh at this and ask "what has Love to do with this"? (For God is love). Perhaps you think that beauty is a chance byproduct of natural laws and that the world does not need any gods to be beautiful?

If you think so, or maybe just assume so without even thinking, excuse me for smiling at you and your sad lack of faith that makes you so stupid when you think you are so smart!

Look at the dolphin. The streamlined beauty of her silvery body, the charm of her movements and her intelligence are well known to humans since ancient times. Dolphin shows, where these magnificent creatures dance and rotate and flip flap and jump according to the will of their human trainers are very popular. God of Israel has created a master piece that has existed in the oceans of this planet long before our time came to take it under our harsh totalitarian rule.

God's creations are holy and even when they show His sense of humour they invite respect and admiration. The intelligent design of dolphins is obvious but it combines with a perfect sense of style and beauty. The charming mammal is truly at home in its watery environment moving there with great speed, accurac and grace - unless trapped by our nets and hooks or driven crazy by our waste and poisons we dump to their home in such a selfish manner.

And more than that. This is not just theory about the deeper foundations of the existing world. For God has made this very personal and given to us, created as His images, the ability also to be artistically creative, charming and intelligent and produce pieces of art, sculpture, paintings, buildings, landscapes. He has made some of us good designers who do their best to combine esthetics, beauty and charm, with functionality, purpose and practicality.

Few surpass the German people in this.  God gave them many gifts (which they have not always used for the best purposes and general good, but often have.)

Evolutionary fight for survival, the fierce commercial competition of car markets where so many companies have recently perished or are fighting for survival, has led to an outstanding product that illustrates my point - the new BMW  Z4 series.

BMW Z4 2011 is a beauty and a beast

Click on the picture and admire! The new BMW Z4 succeeds in combining impeccably good taste, slender lines and shapes, harmony and classic beauty with enormous power and road handling praised by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and the Stig. And they know what they are talking about.

Don't be stupid, believe in God of Israel!

"For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles."
Romans 1:21-23 NIS
