"Its surface and shores are 430.5 metres (1,412 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. It is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With a salinity of 342 g/kg, or 34.2% (in 2011), it is one of the world's saltiest bodies of water – 9.6 times as salty as the ocean – and has a density of 1.24 kg/litre, which makes swimming similar to floating. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which plants and animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea's main, northern basin is 50 kilometres (31 mi) long and 15 kilometres (9 mi) wide at its widest point." Wikipedia
It is important to note that any raw data, correctly observed, can be put within a Creation Model just as easily as an Evolutionary Model. See tab on Interfacing of Religion, Philosophy and Science on this website for more information.
1 Corinthians 13
1-3 "If I speak with the eloquence of men and of angels, but have no love, I become no more than blaring brass or crashing cymbal. If I have the gift of foretelling the future and hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but the very secrets of God, and if I also have that absolute faith which can move mountains, but have no love, I amount to nothing at all. If I dispose of all that I possess, yes, even if I give my own body to be burned, but have no love, I achieve precisely nothing.
4 This love of which I speak is slow to lose patience—it looks for a way of being constructive. It is not possessive: it is neither anxious to impress nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own importance.
5-6 Love has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage. It is not touchy. It does not keep account of evil or gloat over the wickedness of other people. On the contrary, it is glad with all good men when truth prevails.
7-8a Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen...
13 In this life we have three great lasting qualities—faith, hope and love. But the greatest of them is love."
JB Phillips t/l
The left side of the heart pumps oxygen rich blood into all parts of the body. It is under a higher pressure and travels through arteries with thicker walls. The tissues of the body need oxygen to function and live. The arteries become more and more divided and thinner/smaller. Eventually, fine capillaries go through the tissues and the oxygen is transferred across the blood vessel/tissue barrier. CO2, a waste product, is transferred in the opposite direction into the capillaries. Then this low oxygen/low pressure blood flows back into larger veins (with thinner walls compared to arteries) and through the right side of the heart into the blood vessels of the of the lungs.(Note the walls of the blood vessels,pulmonary arteries, from the right heart to the lungs are thicker and of higher pressure than the veins that brought the blood to the right heart.) CO2 passes out and O2 comes into the blood in the lungs while the capillaries are in close contact with the air sacs (aveoli) of the lungs. The oxygen-rich blood then travels back to the left side of the heart. The heart has 4 one-way valves to keep the blood flowing in the correct direction on both the right and left side.
People, some, will try to compare this complex process to other life forms of breathing and call the differences seen "evolution". but this is a total assumption(s). It is far more reasonable to consider these structures, heart and blood vessels, as designed and thus a designer.
The structures of all life forms are very complex and require thought/design. The evolutionary philosophy (not theory-as it is falsified by actual observation) has always been a way of attempting to deny the Creator-from the earliest of times.
