Identifiably You: Forensic Fingerprint Basics

Back to All Workshops
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)

Have you ever wondered what type of fingerprint patterns are on your hands? Did you know that humans are not the only living things with fingerprints? God created each of us with a unique set of fingerprints. The development of fingerprints is still a mystery to scientists, but God in his infinite wisdom understands His intricate design. Fingerprints give us identity, but friction ridge skin also has a specific purpose. In this interactive workshop you will learn about the three types of fingerprint patterns, discover what makes fingerprints unique, and look at your own fingerprints under a magnifier. You will also discover why fingerprints are not evidence of evolution by learning about distinct differences between human fingerprints and animal fingerprints. The beauty and complexity of fingerprint design is truly evidence of the all-powerful Creator God.

Join us as we take a look at your fingerprints and discover your unique patterns.
