From Conception to Birth

A most marvelous use of technology has created a visualization of the miracle of how a human develops in the mother’s womb from conception to birth.  Alexander Tsiaras created and narrates the program which was originally done on TED.   He marvels at what unfolds as the process of human development from the time of conception.  He talks about how in the eyes the cells link together in a different way than any of the other organs allowing for transparency and sight.  He says it is hard not to think about the hand of divinity in the creation of life.   Tsiaras’ creative technology brings to virtual life  the words of Psalm 139:13-16

For it was you who formed my inward parts;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works;

that I know very well.

 My frame was not hidden from you,

when I was being made in secret,

intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes beheld my unformed substance.

In your book were written

all the days that were formed for me,

when none of them as yet existed.

O Lord, how wondrous are your works, in wisdom you made them all!
