The Fibonacci Sequence – Evidence of the Creator’s Design in Nature?

The Fibonacci Sequence of Numbers is Evident throughout All of Nature

In mathematics there are a variety of “special” number sequences: Prime Numbers, Odd Numbers (1,3 5,7, …), Even Numbers (2,4,6,8…); Rational and Irrational Numbers. But then there is also a very special sequence of numbers called “The Fibonacci Sequence”, after its discoverer, Fibonacci of course. The Fibonacci numbers, commonly denoted Fn , form a sequence, the Fibonacci sequence, in which each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. The sequence commonly starts from 0 and 1, although some authors start the sequence from 1 and 1 or sometimes (as did Fibonacci) from 1 and 2. Starting from 0 and 1, the first few values in the sequence are:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144….

They are named after the Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa, later known as Fibonacci, who introduced the sequence to Western European mathematics in his 1202 book Liber Abaci. When plotted as rectangles, the Fibonnaci Sequence or numbers forms a unique spiral shape:

It has astounded many that the Fibonacci numbers appear unexpectedly often in mathematics, so much so that there is an entire journal dedicated to their study, the Fibonacci Quarterly. They also appear everywhere in biological settings, such as branching in trees, the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the fruit sprouts of a pineapple, the flowering of an artichoke, an uncurling fern, and the arrangement of a pine cone’s bracts.

Is this all just the result of evolutionary processes – that is, natural selection acting on periodic random mutations, so that all that we are seeing is the “appearance of design”? Or, is it more reasonable to conclude from the evidence that there has been an all-powerful “Master Designer” at work throughout all of creation, to produce ths amazing pattern in all of nature.

You decide after considering the evidence of this amazing design pattern throughput nature.
