Today's Creation Moment

Doctors Use God's Invention
Job 10:10-12
"Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews. Thou hast...
For thousands of years, man has applied a huge variety of things to his skin to help injuries heal. By trial and error he has come up with ointments that keep injured skin moist to assist the natural...

Animals

Air-Cooled Elephants

in
Genesis 2:1-2
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which He had made, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.”

Every engineer will agree that if an intelligent design does a good job, then use that design again. There is no need to re-invent the wheel.

All warm-blooded animals generate heat as they digest their food. Large animals generate a lot of heat and, like a car engine, there has to be a cooling device. Otherwise, the heat would kill the animal, especially elephantsin a hot climate.

What Anemones Hear

Genesis 1:21a, 22a
“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind…And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas…”

While it’s pretty easy to find an elephant’s ear, it’s not at all easy to find a frog’s ear. But how would you like to be one of the scientists who had to look for a sea anemone’s ear!
 
Early scientists described their work as “thinking God’s thoughts after Him.” Those of us who believe in the Creator would agree and leave the evolutionists to try to fit all living things into their simple-to-complex scheme.

The Lazarus Rat

in
1 Corinthians 8:2
“And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.”

According to evolutionists, the early family of mammals called Diatomyidae has been extinct for eleven million years. Of course, as creationists, we do not accept this dating. This Diatomyidae family included rat-like creatures with long skulls, a furry tail and rounded ears.

A Most Amazing Escape Artist

in
Job 38:41
“Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.”

A parasitic worm that matures on land but must breed under the water has some remarkable abilities to make this difficult trick possible.

Singing Mice?

in
Psalm 40:3
“And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.”

Birds do it. Whales do it. Now, it appears that male mice do it. They all sing!

Monkeys as Intelligent as College Students?

in
Colossians 4:6
“Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”

Evolutionists claim that human intelligence began to develop when early man invented language. Genesis tells us that human language began when Adam named the animals. Names – that is, nouns – are the first requirement for language, but this must be preceded by intelligence. Creationists have always viewed both language and intelligence as gifts from God.

True Superglue

in
Psalm 9:1b
“I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.”

Try using superglue in wet conditions, and you’ll find that the glue is not so super. Even epoxy doesn’t work well in water. Scientists finally decided to turn to the lowly mussel to learn how to make better glues for use in wet environments.

A Potpourri of Blessings

in
Hebrews 6:7
“For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God....”

Many people like to have a nice perfume around the house. They brew a potpourri of mint, citronella, lavender and similar fragrant plants to make home smell more like home. But humans aren’t the only creatures that appreciate a nice smell around their house.

Smart Mollusks

in
Job 21:22
“Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.”

According to modern thinking, intelligence is a product of several factors. Of course, the most important requirement is that the creature must be high on the evolutionary tree. Intelligence is also related to life span, the longer the better, and the fact that they are social creatures.

Cooked Wasps

in
Psalm 82:3
“Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.”

Domesticated honeybees in China are preyed upon by a native wasp. A single wasp can wipe out a nest of 6,000 bees before carrying off the larvae to feed its own young. The wasp does this by stationing itself at the entrance to the nest and killing the guards one by one as they come out to defend the hive.

A Real Crime-Fighting Bat

Mark 4:22
“For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither is any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.”

Airport security is a major concern these days. There are many ways for those who don’t have good intentions to hide things beneath their clothes. Now, thanks to a design they borrowed from our Creator God, scientists have come up with a way to make that virtually impossible,

You Can’t Hear This Surprise

in
Psalm 5:3
“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.”

The concave-eared torrent frog of China sings like a bird with a wide assortment of whistles and chirps. They live where streams and rivers splash down rocky mountainsides.

Electric Singing and Arguing

in
Genesis 1:20a
“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life ....”

The brown ghost knifefish, popular in many aquariums, generates a weak electric signal that it uses for navigation and communication. The electric field they generate is too weak to stun prey. However, the electric organs that run along the sides of their bodies can pick up any changes in the field when the field encounters something with a conductivity that is different than water.

Trying to Spin an Evolutionary History Out of Spider Silk

Job 8:13-14
“So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite’s hope shall perish: Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider’s web.”

Scientists recently examined a well-preserved spider web encased in amber. It is the oldest example of a spider web in existence and was declared to be 110 million years old.

Doctor Lobster?

in
Leviticus 13:8
“And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.”

The spiny lobster is a social creature. Lobsters like to congregate in groups in crevices and cooperate in defending their home against danger. When they migrate, they walk head to tail in single-file groups.

Hummingbird Wristwatches

in
Psalm 25:6
“Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.”

When you remember something that happened and where and when it happened, you are using what scientists call episodic memory. Scientists have traditionally thought that such memory was unique to man.

Another Evolution Claim Goes Extinct

1 Corinthians 2:13a
“Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth....”

Evolutionists regularly announce that they have scientifically proven that this creature evolved from that creature. Or they say that science proves that this creature or that one has been extinct for millions of years. Further, such claims are not to be questioned because they have been proven by science.

The Worm Turns on Plants

Psalm 59:17
“Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.”

Regular listeners to Creation Moments are familiar with the many examples we have described of plants protecting themselves from insects. 

“The Most Perfect Design I’ve Ever Seen”

in
Psalm 107:24
“These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.”

 “The most perfect design I’ve ever seen.” Those words were uttered by a materials engineer after studying a deep sea sponge from the Pacific Ocean. And, indeed, the Euplectella aspergillun, claimed to be an early and primitive sponge, can teach modern materials engineers a number of useful things.

Ants Go Homeless for Cheating

2 Corinthians 8:21
“Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.”

Many plants give ants special protection and, in return, the ants protect these plants from other insects. In itself, this widespread arrangement offers evidence of design. However, sometimes these arrangements are even more complex than they at first appear.
