Throwback Thursday – Twelve Part Series on Dynamics

Ordinarily, dear ones, I would be telling you about today’s episode on the podcast. Unfortunately, I have yet again hit a snag in the download portion of our recording. I’m currently working with tech folks to see if they can resolve the issue. Please pray for me, friends, as I trudge through the ever mystifying realm of…technology. *gulp* Instead, today I’ll be posting a throwback.

Way back in November of 2018 I finished a twelve part series on the three types of dynamics; thermodynamics, aerodynamics, and hydrodynamics. It was fun to study these in light of Gods sovereignty over creation, and to reach Kayliegh as we went along. You can see the original post here. Below is just the ending post, but it’s equipped with links to all the parts in the series. I hope it’s as fun for you to read as it was for me to write!


Hello dear ones! This is it, the final post on our series through dynamics. If you missed any of the previous posts I’ll link to them all at the end. I mentioned at the beginning of thermodynamics that many in both the secular side and the creationist side were applying the second law incorrectly. As an explanation for that I’ve got this phenomenal episode of Creation Magazine Live. If you love Answers News you’ll appreciate this show as well.

Obviously when it comes to the application of thermodynamics there’s no limit. It’s an essential foundation for understanding how God designed this world to work. It also impacts the first two fields of study we discussed, hydrodynamics and aerodynamics. The men who first discovered these principles, now laws of science, did not create them but merely put names and equations to them. Beloved, God created all things, though sin cursed and groaning, our world runs in an orderly fashion. I hope this series has helped in seeing the intelligently designed universe, while giving glory to the one who created it. As always, dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Dynamic Series – Hydrodynamics Part IV The Application

Back to business, my friends, let’s discuss the application of Hydrodynamics. If you missed the other parts of this series, here are some helpful links;

Hydrodynamics Part III

Hydrodynamics Part II

Hydrodynamics Part I

Applying this is my favorite part of science, otherwise it stays a bunch of big words in a book that’s way too heavy. I actually got bursitis in high school from carrying all my text books from class to class rather than waste time going to my locker. It still bothers me when the weather changes, Kayliegh will never know how blessed we are to have online books! So, how do we get Hydrodynamics out of the big books and into real live applications? Well, you’re doing it right now. I’ve mentioned Bernoulli previously, after all he named this field of study! While he was studying blood flowing through the veins, he began applying Hydrodynamics to blood pressure, using this fascinating field of study to better understand how our body works.

My husband is a Respiratory Therapist, so his main expertise is in the heart and lungs. When I talked to him about Hydrodynamics the first thing he said to me was “oh like Bernoulli’s equation?” You should know, though he’d hate that I said it, my husband is brilliant. Honestly, he should be writing this, it would probably make much more sense. He had a long night saving little ones lives, so we’ll have to give him a pass. I just wanted you to see how widely connected this field is with the medical field. Much of our life saving procedures today are successful thanks to a better understanding of Hydrodynamics. You’re body is currently regulating the pressure of your blood flowing from the heart to the lungs to oxygenate your toes. That is science in real life, beloved!

The other application that I wanted to point out was how this field of study has aided in understanding the great Deluge. I often have called it Noah’s flood, but that’s not accurate. Noah didn’t cause the flood, it was God’s flood, Gods judgement on a wicked, sinful generation. That judgement left a worldwide mark, which is easier to understand for Creation scientists, thanks to Hydrodynamics. Below is a clip from my favorite female scientist, a woman that has inspired Kayleigh in her studies, Dr. Georgia Purdom. Here she goes over some basics about the Deluge, some common misunderstandings, and some of those marks made.

The last application for Hydrodynamics that I want to mention, briefly, is plumbing. That might be a silly thing to mention, but when you consider our cities and the unbelievably wonderful blessing it is when we turn on fresh water to drink, wash dishes, and bath in, it might get less silly. Hear me out, friends. When I was a young teenager our plumbing stopped working. We had to drive to my grandmas house at night to take baths. As a single mom, barely holding on, there was no way she could pay to get it fixed. Then, due to some random mix up, our electricity was turned off. While the electricity company argued with my poor mom over the bills the previous owner had racked up, winter hit hard. So, we abandoned ship. We left the home, and moved into an apartment. Subsequently, she had to file for bankruptcy. All that to say this, the first time they showed us our new apartment we went from room to room turning on light switches and water faucets. It wasn’t big, and it certainly wasn’t fancy, but it felt like a five star hotel.

We’re not the first culture to figure out how water flows at certain rates depending on the pressure and angle added, but we are certainly blessed by modern technology! When you wash your dishes, or even flush your toilet, consider that men studied Gods creation long and hard before we were able to have such ease! There is much of Gods creation that we can, and should, be thankful for. Not the least is that fluids follow the laws given them, your blood will never cease to flow like it should do to a random chance change in the laws of science. The world we live in is orderly, the laws given followed, by all of Gods creation except one. Mankind. God has taken the time to write His laws in our hearts. All over the world, in every culture, lying, stealing, and murder are wrong. Yet, due to our fallen adamic nature, we continue to break His Laws. It is for this reason, dear ones, that we need a Savior. Jesus Christ, God made man, lived a perfect sinless life, and died in place of whosoever would believe in Him. Repent of your sins (lust which Christ called adultery, hatred which Christ called murder, lying, and theft) and put your faith in Christ alone. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Dynamic Series – Hydrodynamics Part III The Principles

Hello and happy Monday my friends! Today is another fantastic opportunity to stretch our brains and glorify God in His marvelous creation. As you know, if you follow this blog, we’ve been discussing briefly the varies studies of dynamics. Currently we’re on Hydrodynamics, the principles involved specifically. Hydrodynamics is more than just a fun word, but also applies to our everyday lives in fascinating ways.

There are three forces that impact fluid movement, those three are gravity, pressure, and stress on the surface. The main principle is Bernoulli’s Equation, which we’ve discussed previously. The equation is as difficult to explain as it is to understand, so I’ve found a video to help. Below is a video that really helped Kayleigh and I put the Laws and the principles together. I have not checked the other videos, so I certainly couldn’t endorse this YouTube channel, but this particular video was super helpful.

I love how she simplified the example given, can you imagine how complex this gets when viscosity is changed? While this is certainly not my favorite corner of science, it’s important to see how orderly Gods creation works. What we see is that everything God has made obeys the laws given to it, whether that be the planets in orbit or the molecules in our bodies. We certainly serve a great God, one that not only upholds the universe, but also took out my cold, dead, heart and replaced it with a living one. Miraculously, without my ability to earn it, God saved me from the wrath to come. I deserved that wrath because I broke Gods Law, the Ten Commandments. God gave me the air I breath, the blood in my veins, the love of my family, and chocolate, I should have worshipped Him gladly. Instead I created a god in my own image, one who didn’t mind when I sinned. I’ve broken all ten laws in thought, if not in deed, which is why I deserved wrath. Unlike fluid, humanity disobeys God daily, and as a just, righteous God, He must condemn sinners. In His loving kindness He condescended to become man, Jesus Christ, who lived a perfect, sinless life. Christ died in our place, to bare the wrath we deserved, so that we could be forgiven and saved. We must repent of our sins, and put our faith in Christ alone. If you have any questions about this, or about the principles involved in Hydrodynamics please feel free to ask. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Dynamic Series – Hydrodynamics Part II The Laws

Hello again, beloved brethren, I hope this post finds you all doing well. If you’ll recall, in our series through dynamics, we’re on Hydrodynamics now. Today we’re going to discuss the laws of hydrodynamics. Isn’t it wonderful how God designed everything, put it all in motion, and upholds it minute by minute. Without this consistent obedience to Gods law, the blood flowing in our veins might cease, the waters running down our rivers could settle, life would stop. God truly has revealed Himself in His creation, we are all without excuse. What are these laws that literally keep our heart beating? The Laws of Conservation.

No, we’re not talking about reusing plastic. The Laws of Conservation of mass, energy, and linear momentum are the three laws used when referencing fluid dynamics. The conservation of mass is simply that mass can not be added or removed in a closed system. It’s the same law as matter not being created nor destroyed. Remember, dear ones, God finished His work on day 6, and rested on day 7. Nothing will be added to, or removed from, Gods work until Christ returns. In regards to Fluid Dynamics, Conservation of Mass has implications for movement through things such as ships in an ocean, or blood cells through veins. You can move the mass of fluid, you can put pressure on it to manipulate the flow, but you can not create fluid from nothing, nor can you destroy it.

The second law listed is the Conservation of Energy, most often called the first law of thermodynamics. I left thermodynamics last because, well one it’s my favorite, and two, it ties these all together. This Law states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, like mass it just changes forms. Again, my friends, God rested on the 7th day from all His works. The last law mentioned is linear momentum, also known as Newton’s Second Law of Motion. This just states that the movement of a fluid is equal to the force applied. Our heart pumps our blood at a certain rate, rushing oxygen to the needed places. The movement is equal to the force.

Those are the three laws that Hydrodynamics follows, Conservation of Mass, Energy, and Linear Momentum. I can not stress enough to you, brethren, that our universe is orderly, not chaotic. From the planets orbits, to the microscopic atoms, everything does what it’s supposed to do. To look around at these laws, so beautifully and intelligently designed, and suggest that an explosion created them is genuinely repressing the truth in unrighteousness. I hope this series blesses you all, and glorifies the Creator by showing yet again that He truly is upholding all things. As always, dear friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Dynamic Series – Hydrodynamics Part I An Introduction

It’s Monday yet again, my friends, which means it’s time to exercise your brain. We’re continuing our Dynamic Series today with an introduction to Hydrodynamics. Hydrodynamics is a branch of physics under Fluid Dynamics, which is a subcategory of Fluid Mechanics. Hydrodynamics is in the same class as aerodynamics, so much of what we’ll cover over the next few weeks will be similar. However, hydrodynamics does have some fascinating differences, and applications, which affect areas of study such as anatomy as well as the global deluge!

Genesis-7-17

So what is hydrodynamics? It’s the study of fluids in motion, mostly liquid, and how they are affected by other forces, as well as the fluids affect on those forces. You may remember a fellow named Daniel Bernoulli from previous posts in this series. Not only did he contribute greatly to aerodynamics, he actually named hydrodynamics while researching how blood flows under varies degrees of pressure. Another well known name we’ll discuss down the road is Blaise Pascal. He made some amazing contributions to this field, as did Isaac Newton.

Genesis-1-6

Hydrodynamics is yet another field of study in which man has only discovered the workings of a world created by God the Father. As I’ve said before, explosions of nothing into everything, chaos and destruction, with random chance mixed in, is mathematically incapable of creating order. This means that each time we dig deeper into the laws of science we’re peering into Gods design, adding layer upon layer of impossibility to evolution. I pray this series is an encouragement to you, beloved brethren. Next week we’ll discuss the laws of hydrodynamics, so stay tuned! As always, dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
