In today’s world more than one billion people
lack access to clean drinking water. This leads to untold suffering and death from dysentery, typhoid, and other diseases
associated with contaminated water sources. Children are especially victims of unsafe water. One solution to this serious
problem comes from a tree which grows worldwide in both tropical and arid areas worldwide, called the miracle tree.
|Moringa Oleifera Flowers and Leaves
known to botanists as Moringa oleifera, is also called the horseradish tree (from its roots) and the drumstick tree
(from the shape of its pods). The miracle tree leaves have medical applications and the seed pods are nutritious. But perhaps
even more important, a chemical in the oil from seed pods is found to bind sediment to itself while also killing harmful bacteria
including E. coli. In past years, use of an extract from the seeds was too expensive for water treatment, and the resulting
water quickly grew new bacteria. These problems have now been solved and Moringa seeds show serious promise for water treatment

This world is filled with similar useful ideas
and products, placed there for our benefit by the Creator of the universe. Surely, many practical designs
and solutions to problems remain yet undiscovered. The examples described on this website each illustrate intelligent design.
They suggest an entirely new approach to science: Discovering the secrets that our Creator has provided for mankind.
