    The writer commences: “There was a time when the earth was to all appearance utterly destitute both of animal and vegetable life, and when according to the opinion of our best philosophers it was simply a hot round ball with a crust gradually cooling. Now if a human being had existed while the earth was in this state and had been allowed to see it as though it were some other world with. The Magician's Own Book, or, the Whole Art of Conjuring Being a complete hand-book of parlor magic, and containing over one thousand optical, chemical, mechanical, magnetical, and magical experiments, amusing transmutations, astonishing sleights and subtleties, celebrated card deceptions, ingenious tricks with numbers, curious and entertaining.

      The devil and his minions are out to COMPLETELY CONTROL us or WIPE US OUT! They believe that by changing the TIME, they can defeat GOD’s purpose and WIN the right to keep their dominion over the earth forever. Check out these pictures of animals.

      The flight ability of animals is restricted by the scaling effects imposed by physical and physiological factors. In comparisons of the power available from muscle and the mechanical power required to fly, it is predicted that the margin between the powers should decrease with body size and that flying animals have a maximum body size. However, predicting the absolute value of this upper limit.   ↑ “On the Various Modes of Flight in relation to Aeronautics,” by J. Bell Pettigrew, Proc. Roy.

Aerodynamic efficiency: birds vs. bats-- Flight is one of the energetically most costly activities in the animal kingdom, suggesting that natural selection should work to optimize flight performance.

The similar size and flight speed of birds and bats may therefore suggest convergent aerodynamic performance; alternatively, flight performance.
