The Fibonacci Proof of God

faith, I believe, Nature, Photography, Random / Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Last week, in my Beauty in Nature and Science Points to God post, I shared a little about the mind-blowing Fibonacci mathematical equation seen throughout the universe. It’s so cool I had to share more about it.

Hold on to your brains.

If you really want to attempt to understand the equation, here’s a great source:

Scroll down to the part about Fibonacci Rectangles and Shell Spirals:

And click here to see how the Fibonacci series plays out.


Now that you understand (maybe?) a bit better, here are some pictorial examples of where we see the Fibonacci series in real life:

Bee ancestry “family trees” 

“The ancestral tree of a male honeybee follows Fibonacci’s sequence. Female honeybees (either workers or queens) hatch from an egg that has been fertilized by a male honeybee, but male honeybees are produced by the queen’s unfertilised eggs, so they have a mother but no father. As the above picture clearly shows, the sequence that gives us the number of honeybees in each generation of the ancestral tree of a male bee is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13…”

Spiral Galaxies (Not a perfect spiral anymore since galaxies like this have had previous collisions with other galaxies, warping their perfect spiral.

Look at yourself!

If I were a detective looking for clues as to ‘who done it”, I’d say the Who left a fairly large and obvious signature

Ok, perhaps I’d better stop thinking about Fibonacci for a while or I might turn into these guys:
