Frankincense
Matthew 2:11
And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they...
As a child, I was told that frankincense had been brought to Europe by the Frankish people – ancestors of the modern French. This turned out not to be the case. Instead, the prefix frank refers to...

Animals

No Heartbeat? Don't Worry!

in
I Chronicles 16:24
"Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations."

Evolutionists say that an animal's unique features developed because the unique feature gives the animal some survival benefit. Just what that benefit might be is open to interpretation, and sometimes the explanation is a little fuzzy. Sometimes the explanation just doesn't work.

High-Tech Ants

in
Genesis 1:31
"And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day."

Why do ants like electricity and why can they sense microwaves? If evolution were true, how would ants evolve a love for electricity in only the short time that man has been producing it? For what purpose would they have evolved the ability to sense microwave radiation long before man was using it?

The Mystery of Mouse Pyramids

in
Psalm 118:22
"The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner."

Mice of the Sahara Desert pile up round stones in front of their burrows, making small pyramids through which the air can flow. As the morning air heats up, the rocks heat up much more slowly. As the dew point of the rapidly warming air rises, water in the air begins to condense on the cooler stones. It turns out that having round stones leaves exactly the right shaped spaces for this to take place. This is how the mice get their water.

The Genius of Insect Flight

in
Psalm 105:31
"He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts."

Flying insects have been a huge mystery to scientists, especially those who believe in evolution. Until recently, scientists didn't know how flying insects could fly. Wind tunnel tests on insect wings showed that their wings produce anywhere from a third to half as much lift needed for flight, depending on the species. Yet, horseflies have been clocked flying at up to 90 miles per hour!

What's Part Mammal, Marsupial and Reptile?

in
Psalm 111:4
"He hath made His wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion."

While all living things defy evolution, some do it more clearly than others. The echidna is one example of a creature that obviously challenges evolution. This Australian marvel is often called the spiny anteater. However, it has little resemblance to anteaters in other parts of the world.

Eating that Can Result in Starvation

Psalm 102:5-6
"By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin. I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert."

The creosote shrub is common in the desert of the American Southwest and northern Mexico. This remarkable plant is not only well designed for life in the desert, but also it protects itself from those who would munch on its leaves.

The Deadliest Animal in the World

in
I Peter 5:8
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"

You have probably never heard of the last animal you would ever want to meet undefended. This animal, found in the wild only in Madagascar, is called the fossa (pronounced FOO-sa). A typical specimen weighs only about 14 pounds. Its body is about 28 inches long, but its tail is another 28 inches long.
