"By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent."
Australia has many unique creatures that people find fascinating. One example is the floodplain death adder and its habit of eating dangerous frogs.
The marbled frog has a defense that could get the...
"For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise."
Darwinists and climate-change alarmists are frequently heard to say that their respective topics are a matter of "settled science." They use this term to silence critics. But is this how science is supposed to work? The late Dr. Michael Crichton, best known as the author of Jurassic Park, didn't think so.
"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."
Though Louis Pasteur proved that life comes only from life, the myth that life can come from non-life – or abiogenesis – is still defended by evolutionists today. They now claim that while Pasteur disproved spontaneous generation, he did not prove that life comes only from life.
"And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets."
A bacterium has recently been photographed that is so tiny, researchers have debated about whether it could even exist. The bacterium has a volume of only .009 cubic microns. To put that into perspective, a micron is one millionth of a meter. This means that more than 150,000 of them could fit on the tip of a single human hair.
"Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil."
Many thousands of people have visited the Creation Moments website after seeing a photo we posted at the popular WorldNetDaily website. The photo shows a cow with spots on its hide that look exactly like a map of the world. We asked readers if they thought the map on the cow was just a lucky arrangement of spots or if the photo was the product of a Photoshop artist.
"He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him."
Why in the world would engineers at Mercedes-Benz and DaimlerChrysler turn to a fish built like a box for inspiration on automotive design? After all, automakers want their vehicles to travel just as efficiently through air as sharks swim through water. But the boxfish is anything but streamlined.
"Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb?"
You can thank roving pieces of DNA that you were born rather than hatched from an egg. At least, that's what evolutionary biologist Vincent Lynch and his team at the University of Chicago tell us. Science News magazine brings us the story about roving pieces of DNA that helped early mammals replace egg-laying in favor of giving birth to live young.
"I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works."
Evolutionists are simple minded. It's a fact! Charles Darwin thought that the cell was virtually as simple as a blob of gelatin with a nucleus inside, and evolutionists have been simple minded ever since.
"LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee."
Try as they might, evolutionists are powerless to account for the microscopic rotary motor that propels bacteria through fluid just like a powerboat skims along the surface of a lake. But if the bacterium's flagellar motor troubles evolutionists, they must really be puzzled by the fast-moving MO-1 bacterium. After all, its hair-like flagellum isn't powered by just one motor. It uses seven motors all hooked up in parallel!
"Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun."
If you're concerned about maintaining your privacy in a world that is bent on snooping into every aspect of your life, you may not like what scientists are working on now. Researchers at MIT, Microsoft, and Adobe have developed a computer algorithm that is able to reconstruct an audio signal by analyzing the small vibrations of objects depicted in video. In other words, your potato chip bag is recording your words.
"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
The great scientist James Clerk Maxwell, a contemporary of Charles Darwin, was certainly no friend of Darwin's theory of evolution. Even so, the staunchest evolutionists today would agree that Maxwell was a scientist of gigantic proportions, ranking right up there with celebrated scientists like Sir Isaac Newton.
"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
In March of 2014 a team of scientists headed by astronomer John M. Kovac of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics announced that they had finally found the evidence they were seeking to support the theory that the universe had a beginning.
"His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron."
Graphene may be the most unusual material that will ever be produced. It has already revolutionized the world of physics and won the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics for physicist Andre Geim and his colleague, Kostya Novoselow.
"Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them."
Has Darwin's dilemma finally been solved? Darwin's dilemma has been vexing evolutionists for more than 150 years. Charles Darwin, you see, was unable to explain the sudden arrival in Cambrian rock of most of the phyla we have today when no fossil evidence of their ancestors can be found in pre-Cambrian rock.
"And this is the reason of the levy which king Solomon raised; for to build the house of the LORD, and his own house, and Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, and Megiddo, and Gezer."
Secular archaeologists usually assume that the historical statements found in Scripture are overstatements or simply incorrect. It was with this attitude that archaeologists approached the ruins of Hazor to see if they could tell whether Solomon actually did add to the wall of Hazor and build other structures there, as the Bible says. Hazor was an important city on the primary military and trade routes between Israel and Phoenicia, Syria, Mesopotamia and Egypt.
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."
How did life get started? We all know that the Bible tells us that life got started when God created it. But we have also learned, perhaps in school, or reading the news, that evolutionists believe that life could have started in the distant past all by itself if the conditions were right. Perhaps you have read that scientists can form amino acids in the laboratory. Besides the fact that amino acids are a long way from life, the amino acids made in the laboratory are the wrong kind for life.
"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:"
We recently reported on this program that another set of new planets had been discovered circling another star. We pointed out that in each case, most of the planets were too large to support life. In many of the instances, the planets also had egg shaped orbits that would provide them with harsh, highly erratic climates – if they had any atmosphere at all.
"For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night."
The calendar year has not always started on January 1. There was a time in Christian history when the calendar began on March 25. Nevertheless, when we come to the end of one year and begin the next, most people have a time of celebration and reflection.

North meets South in the Great Lakes region as southern hardwood forests reach their northern limit and converge with the conifer forests of the north. The habitat created by northern plants and creatures interacting with...
