Today's Creation Moment

Something's Fishy About Fish Evolution
Matthew 13:47-48
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down...
Dr. John Long, Paleontologist and Head of Science at the Museum Victoria in Melbourne, Australia, should know a lot about fish … and he does. But even though he wrote a book about the evolution of...


Monkeying with Genetics

Job 7:17
"What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?"

We have all heard the claims – and school textbooks love to include it – that humans and chimpanzees are about 99 percent genetically identical. However, that claim evaporates when the details of what is being compared are examined.

Birds' Unique Leg Structure Says No Evolution

Genesis 1:21
"And God created ... every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good."

Countless television programs, museums, textbooks, and popular articles tell us that the birds evolved from dinosaurs. It now appears that this claim is even less credible!

Nasty Nannies

Romans 8:21
"Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God."

There is a species of ant that, although quite small, makes slaves of yet smaller ants. This slave-making ant makes its nest inside acorns, and unlike the species they enslave, they have chemical weapons and powerful jaws.

Man Is Not First to Do Genetic Engineering

Genesis 9:3
"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things."

"You are what you eat." We've all heard the saying. It doesn't mean that if you eat a lot of chicken, you'll literally become a chicken. But now science has discovered a creature for which the saying is literally true, in part, right down to the genetic level.

Moths Fool Bats

2 Corinthians 11:14
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."

When one thinks of clever creatures, moths are probably not the first creature that come to mind – in fact, they probably don't come to mind at all!

Capuchins Don't Monkey Around

Genesis 3:15
"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."

We were once told that tool use is what separates man from the animals. Then it was discovered that some animals use tools. Now scientists have learned that these animals do more than just grab something from their surroundings; they look for something that would be needed to do the job.

Star Smellers

Genesis 27:27a
"And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him...."

Can mammals that spend time in the water smell odors under water? Of course they can, but no researcher is going to take a big sniff under water to find out!

"God Bless You" Indeed

Matthew 6:26
"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them."

Most people know that if they are stranded at sea without fresh water they should not drink sea water. While we need salt, the amount of salt in sea water would kill a person more quickly than thirst. Have a little too much salt on your popcorn and your kidneys will filter out the extra. But to do so, they need extra fresh water.

Salad Spiders

Genesis 1:30
"And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air... I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so."

In the perfect world that God created there were no meat eaters. In today's sinful world it is hard to imagine meat eaters, like spiders, being vegetarians.

Designed as a Companion

Genesis 9:2a
"And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air...."

When God told Noah that man could now eat meat after the Flood, He kindly filled the animals with a natural fear of man. However, He evidently left a few animals without that fear in order for them to be helpmates and companions for man.

Dolphins at Play

Job 40:20
"Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play."

Bottlenose dolphins have a reputation as intelligent, playful creatures. A newly released video shows just how intelligent their play is.

Great Travelers Have Great Stories to Tell

Acts 11:19a
"Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, and Cyprus, and Antioch...."

Those who widely travel usually have interesting experiences to talk about. That is no less true of animals that migrate. A commonly known example is the monarch butterfly. In the fall, monarchs from all over North America head south to the same small patch of jungle trees in Mexico. Even more astonishing is that each generation finds this exact traditional wintering spot but has never been there before.

Australia's Smart Dolphins

Psalm 104:27
"These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season."

It was once thought that only man used tools. However, scientists have learned that some monkeys and even some birds use "tools." Now we can add dolphins to the growing list of tool-users.

No Eyes, But It Can See Light

Psalm 94:9
"He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that formed the eye, shall he not see?"

It turns out that not all creatures need eyes to see light. It all depends on what the creatures were designed to do.

A Serpent Can Point to Christ

John 3:14
"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up...."

The Tiger Keelback snake has a bite that delivers slow-acting venom and prevents the victim's blood from clotting. An adult human could bleed to death from a bite, but it takes a while for the snake to deliver a lethal dose.

Security Mites

Psalm 20:1
"The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee...."

The potter wasp is a solitary wasp that makes a mud nest with several rooms in it. At egg-laying time, the wasp lays one egg in each cavity and leaves some food in each cavity. She also leaves behind a security force!

Fish Birth Amazes Evolutionists

Job 12:8
"Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee."

It was a nice day on a tropical reef in what is now Western Australia when an armored fish began to give birth. Before she could finish, the violence of the Genesis Flood encased her in mud.

The Fish with Three Lines of Defense

Ephesians 6:11
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."

To hear evolutionists tell it, millions of years of chance mutations, combined with natural selection, produced all manner of living creatures. Now, let's look at just one creature – the porcupinefish – and see how the theory of evolution works out in real life. If the theory fails the test, it's a strong indicator that the theory lacks the power to explain the existence of any living creature.

"Primitive" Electric Eel Not So Primitive After All

Revelation 4:11
"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

Not long ago, we told you about the ingenious way that electric eels release strong electric current into the water to make fish thrash about and come out of hiding. That's a pretty cool trick from such a supposedly primitive creature.

The Spider That Thinks It's a Scuba Diver

Genesis 6:20
"Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."

Most spiders use their silk to make webs to catch prey. But there's one spider that spins its silk to make a virtually waterproof sack and fills it with air bubbles so it can survive underwater for hours at a time. In fact, the air-filled sack is so efficient, it allows this air-breathing spider to live virtually its whole life a few inches below the water's surface.
