Biomimicry at the Tower of Babel
Ran across this little gem recently:
"and it came to pass that the brother of Jared did go to work, and also his brethren, and built barges after the manner which they had built, according to the instructions of the Lord. And they were small, and they were light upon the water, even like unto the lightness of a fowl upon the water."
Nothing like a bit of antediluvian biomimicry before breakfast, eh?
