From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
The Biography portal is the CreationWiki center for the "Who's Who" in the debate over creation vs. evolution. Relevant biographies would include those actively involved in creationism or evolutionism missions, but also scientists of all sorts, Bible characters, Christian apologists, intelligent design theorists, etc.
William Penn (October 14, 1644 - July 30, 1718) is the father of Democracy in the United States; who Thomas Jefferson called "the greatest law giver the world has produced." He was a pacifist Quaker whose founding of the Christian government of Pennsylvania in 1681 inspired the later United States of America. Penn's new government originated the principles of representative government, separation of church and state, and elimination of nobility and ranks, while producing almost exactly a century before the U.S. Constitution concepts such as an elected 2-house Congress to pass bills, religious freedom, freedom of speech, and a Bill of Rights. He also, in 1693, drafted a lengthy proposal for a future European Union or as he called it, a "European League, or Confederacy".
John Ambrose Fleming is best known for his discoveries related to electricity and telecommunication. He graduated from a university in London. This is where he started researching the idea of the "Edison Effect." The "Edison Effect" is an electric current flow between a heated cathode in a seperate tube. The "Edison Effect" helped Fleming realize how to fix weak radio signals. After college, he started to work at the Marconi Company. This is where he invented and patented his electronic amplifier.
Fleming invented an important electronic device called the oscillation valve which some believed marked the beginning of electronics. Another inventor later took the oscillation valve idea and ended up creating what we now call an amplifier. But this isn't a stereo amplifier that makes music sound loud, it is a type of amplifier that generates strength to radio waves. The oscillation valve was the first transmitter to reach across the Atlantic. It was John Ambrose's idea to help the world communicate across the ocean. The oscillation valve looked like a lightbulb with a black coil attached to it. The coil was then attached to a metal cylinder in the center of the bulb. What this contraption did was conduct electricity to a plate of metal which could receive radio wave lengths.

"A junkyard contains all the bits and pieces of a Boeing 747, dismembered and in disarray. A whirlwind happens to blow through the yard. What is the chance that after its passage a fully assembled 747, ready to fly, will be found standing there? So small as to be negligible, even if a tornado were to blow through enough junkyards to fill the whole Universe." Astronomer Fred Hoyle. The Intelligent Universe (p.19).
