Today's Creation Moment

Half of Scientific Literature May Be Untrue
Jeremiah 9:5
"And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity....
It is common for evolutionists to dismiss a lot of great work by creationists, saying that their papers do not appear in their own peer-reviewed journals. But now, editors of the two most prestigious...


Glow, Little Cockroach

Job 29:3
"When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;"

As Creation Moments has reported in the past, evolutionists were dead wrong when they told us that viceroy butterflies evolved to look like toxic monarch butterflies to trick predators into thinking that they, too, are toxic. As it turned out, viceroy butterflies really are toxic – more toxic than monarchs.

This Plant Calls Out to Bats!

Leviticus 11:19
"And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat."

Imagine this – you're a carnivorous pitcher plant with no scent to attract insects. Even worse, though most pitcher plants are designed to kill insects in their pool of digestive fluids, you don't have enough fluid to do the job. What's a poor pitcher plant to do?

Giant Redheaded Centipede

Genesis 8:19
"Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark."

Many of us would enjoy watching a redheaded woodpecker bang bang bang his head into a tree trunk. But today I'd like to tell you about another redheaded creature that would probably have many of us running in the opposite direction. I'm talking about the giant redheaded centipede.

What's This? A Warm-Blooded Fish?

Psalm 8:8-9
"The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!"

Though the fish story I'm about to tell you is absolutely true, it goes against what we've always been taught about fish being cold-blooded. Scientists have just discovered the very first warm-blooded fish. Though fish typically require heat from the environment to stay warm, the opah is able to elevate its own temperature without the help of its environment.

How the Seahorse Got Its Square Tail

Genesis 1:31a
"And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."

Evolutionists and creationists alike enjoy gazing upon the elegant seahorse swimming lazily about the aquarium. However, only creationists are able to see that the seahorse bears the unmistakable stamp of design – all the way from the top of its horse-shaped head to the tip of its unique square tail.


Psalm 113:3
"From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised."

When a very bizarre animal was first discovered in the Burgess shale of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, scientists literally couldn't tell its head from its tail. In fact, when they reconstructed the worm-like creature, they got it totally wrong. They assembled it upside down and put its head where its tail should be.

Jet-Propelled Squid

Psalm 8:8-9
"The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!"

You've heard of flying squirrels and flying fish, but did you know there's also a squid that can fly? Even more surprising is that it accomplishes this amazing feat using jet-propulsion! Yes, though they were once only rumors, we now know that a certain kind of squid can emerge from the water and streak through the air at speeds up to 25 miles per hour. A team of Japanese marine biologists have actually photographed Japanese flying squid doing just that in groups.

Four Eyes Or Two?

Job 5:8-9
"I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause: Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:"

Behold the amazing cuatro ojos – the four-eyed fish! At first glance, you would say it has just two eyes. But look closer and you'll see that each eye is divided into two separate eyes!

Dinosaur Feathers!

Genesis 1:20
"And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven."

Creation Moments isn't in the business of reviewing Hollywood films, and we're not about to start now. However, we do have some thoughts about the whole Jurassic Park movie franchise. Though these films are entertaining, Christians need to be aware that the films are also promoting evolution by claiming that modern-day birds are descendents of Jurassic-age dinosaurs.

Jumping to Conclusions

Proverbs 29:20
"Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him."

Though they are less than a half inch in length, recent studies have shown that Habronattus jumping spiders have eyesight that, in some ways, rivals our own. In fact, they can do something even your family pooch can't do – see colors.

Don't Mess with the Hoopoe!

Deuteronomy 14:12, 18
"But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray … And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat."

Don't mess with the hoopoe – especially the female! Their Creator blessed this bird with an oil gland that produces a really foul-smelling liquid. When rubbed into their plumage, it smells like rotting meat and deters not only predators but parasites as well. In fact, it also acts as an antibacterial agent.

The Umbrella Bird

1 Thessalonians 5:5
"Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness."

The best fishermen not only know where the fish are biting, but exactly what type of bait or lure is needed to catch the big ones. That's why I say that the best fisherman of all is not a man but a bird.

Did Ants Invent the Electric Knife?

Romans 8:28
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Scientists have discovered that seemingly purposeless behaviors among leaf cutting ants actually serve an important function. Leaf cutting ants cut green leaves into pieces that they can carry back to the nest. As they cut a leaf, they vibrate, creating an effect like an electric knife. Since they can cut the leaves without vibrating, it would seem to have no purpose.

Calibrating the Bee Odometer

Psalm 31:3
"For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me."

When a honeybee finds a good source of food, she returns to the hive to tell fellow bees where it is. Her dance tells nest mates the direction of the source from the nest and how far away it is. Researchers have long puzzled over how the bee knows the distance she has traveled. Several theories have been proposed, but until now, none have been proven.

Ants Challenge Natural Selection

Genesis 6:19
"And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female."

Charles Darwin recognized that ants challenged his theory of natural selection. He even mentioned it in his Origin of Species. He even asked how the situation with the lowly ant could ever be reconciled with his theory. He never did come up with an answer, and neither have modern evolutionists.

These Parrots Aren't Just Parroting

Psalm 94:10
"He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?"

Researchers at Purdue University are demonstrating that parrots are capable of intelligent communication. Their carefully designed experiments have convinced even skeptics that the two parrots under study are not just giving conditioned responses. Their results are challenging the accepted scientific knowledge about animal intelligence and the evolutionary claim that intelligence is one of the traits that separate us from animals.

Air-Conditioned Dinosaurs

Job 41:20
"Smoke goes out of his nostrils, as from a boiling pot and burning rushes."

Warm-blooded creatures need to be able to vent excess heat or they begin to suffer heatstroke. One of the ways in which warm-blooded animals do this is through the nasal cavities. As they breathe, the air passes through sheets of mucous membranes that are designed to increase the surface area over which the air passes. These membranes have a rich blood supply.

Those Noisy Ants

Ephesians 4:29
"Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers."

Scientists have long known that some ants communicate with one another using vibrations. They also know that these ants pick up vibrations through ears that are located in their knees. Ants in four subfamilies communicate using these vibrations. These ants tend to build nests with wood or dried pulp, which tend to Two workers communicating through touch. carry the vibrations. Disturb a carpenter ant nest, and the vibrations will begin.

Honeybees Tracked with Radar

Numbers 13:27
"Then they told him, and said: 'We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit.'"

Honey has always been a popular food. For thousands of years it was a symbol of prosperity. Perhaps honey's continuing appeal is one of the reasons there is so much research on honeybees. A research team has released their findings that explain how honeybees learn how to navigate. Another team has released information showing how bees know how far they have traveled.

Eggs-ellent Examples of Design

Job 11:18
"And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety."

Over the years, Creation Moments has brought you countless examples of plants and animals that appear to have been designed because they really were designed! Nowhere is this easier to see than in the design of bird eggs.
