"I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree, the myrtle and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine and the box tree...
What two things are most important to someone lost in the desert? Why, a compass and, of course, some water. If you are lost in the desert and find a compass barrel cactus, you have both in this...

Humans

Why Are Chimps and Humans Similar?

Mark 7:37
And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

Why are chimps so similar to humans? They have five fingers on each hand, like we do, and five toes on each foot. They have facial expressions a bit like us.

Chimps are probably the animals most similar in appearance to us. However, there are many other similarities among animals. Many animals, for example, have five sets of bones in their hands, front paws, flippers, or, in the case of bats, their wings. Why do these similarities occur? Is it because we have evolved from a common ancestor, as the evolutionists suggest?

Mathematical Infants

in
Romans 12:1
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service."

Does a five-month-old infant know that three is more than two? Impressive new evidence strongly supports the idea that infants have natural mathematical reasoning skills.

An Orange Elephant?

in
Genesis 2:19
"Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name."

In Genesis 2:19 we read that God brought to Adam the animals He'd made to see what Adam would call them. It's been noted for generations that this task showed Adam's great intellectual abilities.

Nuts to Your Health

in
Genesis 43:11
"And their father Israel said to them, 'If it must be so, then do this: Take some of the best fruits of the land in your vessels and carry down a present for the man; a little balm and a little honey, spices and myrrh, pistachio nuts and almonds.'"

Between 70% and 90% of the calories in nuts come from fat. That's why they have traditionally been on the list of foods to avoid for those who want to avoid heart disease.

Your Invisible Eye

in
Proverbs 26:12
"Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him."

Did you know that you have three eyes? In fact, someday your third eye may provide spare parts that might be necessary to repair the two eyes you normally think about.

Evolutionists Have a Back Problem

Psalm 111:10
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever."

Back pain is one of humanity's most common complaints. And the most common explanation one hears for back pain is that our backs hurt because we stand and walk erect.

Misidentification

in
Galatians 1:8
"But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed."

One of the best strategies for overcoming an opponent is to fool the opponent into thinking you do not exist. Then you infiltrate your opponent and make him think that you are on his side.

The Talking Ear

in
James 1:22
"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves."

Can your ear talk to you? New research seems to show that your ear actually generates sound that echoes whatever you hear.

Science Confronts Meditation Claims

Psalm 119:148
"Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word."

Many people promote meditation as harmless and healthful. Of course, growing interest in meditation cannot be separated from the increased popularity of Eastern and New Age religion.

Touching Love

in
2 Corinthians 13:11
"Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you."

Love is one of the necessities of life that is both physical and spiritual. While it doesn't fit with a strictly materialistic view of life, love and touch – or lack of love and touch – can determine our health and sometimes even life and death.

Brain Disappoints Evolutionary Thoughts

in
Psalm 119:130
"The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple."

According to evolutionary thought, humans came from ape-like creatures. These ape-like creatures came from reptiles through many steps. Likewise, reptiles ultimately came from fish, through many steps. Evolutionists say that with each major stage, more parts were added to the brain. The final development, and the greatest of all, is the cerebral cortex.

Desktop Manufacturing

Genesis 11:6
"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."

We live in a day and age when God has allowed men and women more freedom than He has allowed previous generations. That freedom can be used for worse evil than the world has ever known, or it can be used for more good than the world has ever known. Christians will make the difference.

Smarter Than They Thought

in
Ephesians 6:4
"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."

Traditional approaches to early childhood development have relied heavily on the claims of those who don't believe in the Creator. As a result, these approaches see human beings as simply another animal. Along with this, they usually think that humans are born into the world as a blank slate with no knowledge. As a result, the traditional view has assumed that everything an infant does is based on instinct.

Hard-Working Virus

in
Philippians 1:22-24
"But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you."

When it was introduced, some people thought that it was against God's will. After all, since the human body was made in God's image, it is wrong to put something into the human body that was made from a cow. An artist of the day even drew a cartoon showing people receiving the vaccine that was made from a cow. It showed cows emerging from the leg of someone who had been vaccinated. The vaccine was smallpox vaccine, and the year was 1796.

God's Safety Valve?

in
Psalm 71:6
"By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee."

More than 75 percent of all women in their first trimester of pregnancy suffer some form of morning sickness. More than half become physically sick. While it may not help a woman with morning sickness feel better, it might help to know that morning sickness may serve a good purpose.

Abortion and the Mother's Mental Health

in
Psalm 127:3
"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."

Over the past several years, scientific studies of women have shown that those who have had abortions increase their risks of infertility, breast cancer and other problems. Now, a study released by the Population Research Institute reveals a whole new category of risks associated with abortion.

From Mozart to Einstein

in
1 Chronicles 15:16
"And David spake to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brethren to be the singers with instruments of music..."

Scientists have shown that the so-called "Mozart effect" of music in young children is just a myth. This popular idea said that exposing young children to classical music improves their ability in non-verbal tasks. Nevertheless, researchers did find a more interesting effect of classical music on students.

Getting Rid of the Trash

in
Psalm 139:15
"My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth."

Years ago, evolutionary scientists labeled 180 human organs, such as the appendix, as vestiges left over from evolution. The fact is they did not know the function these organs actually served. Since that time, it has been learned that all of these organs have useful functions and have nothing to do with evolution.

The Importance of Being Father

in
Ephesians 6:4
"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."

How important is father to a child's religious growth? Due to the way in which census information is gathered in Switzerland, researchers were able to find out. And while their conclusions might shock modern sensitivities, they are really not too surprising.

The Problem of Genius

in
Genesis 1:26a
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…"

The piano you hear in the background was being played by Matt Savage. He wrote the music and called this piece "Ladybug Bounce". Matt is an autistic boy, does piano concerts and was then just twelve years old.
