A Real Crime-Fighting Bat

Mark 4:22
“For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither is any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.”

Airport security is a major concern these days. There are many ways for those who don’t have good intentions to hide things beneath their clothes. Now, thanks to a design they borrowed from our Creator God, scientists have come up with a way to make that virtually impossible,

Tadarida brasiliensisThe new security device is called Tadar and uses harmless high frequency waves to create images on a screen. The high frequency waves have a wavelength of only 3 millimeters. These waves reflect from anything that is blocking a person’s natural radiation. This means that anything hidden under someone’s clothing will be seen on the Tadar’s screen. The screen itself provides ten 3-dimensional images per second. Tadar can see anything from a metal gun to plastic explosives since any object will obstruct some of the body’s natural radiation. Tadar is also not invasive and can pick up objects hidden behind clothing up to 160 feet away. Tadar is named after the Brazilian bat, Tadarida brasiliensis, which uses the same high frequency pulses to find its prey.

The more sophisticated our technology becomes, the more obvious it becomes that the living things around us are not the product of chance. But while science can show us the hand of the Creator, only Scripture tells us of His love for us by sending His Son to save us.

Father, I thank You that Your love for me is not hidden. It is shown to me in the death and resurrection of Jesus. Amen.
