I'm still grading the assignments from last week. *hangs head in shame* But I just came across another "How did you see God in this lab?" answer (like Inah's) that blew me away.

For those of you unfamiliar with hydrogen bonding in water, cohesion is the type of force that holds like things together, including water droplets. Surfactants, like soap, disrupt cohesion and weaken those internal bonds, allowing water to make finer droplets and make things "wetter" (this is why we add detergent to laundry, etc.).

Ricky wrote, "God intended the world to stick together, thus He shows us this in pure water, which sticks together. When surfactants (sins) are added to the world, there is less togetherness. He shows us what He wants for us through water."

Wow. Class dismissed. I can't teach you any more than you already know.
