Today's Creation Moment

The Answer Is Blowin' in the Wind
Psalm 92:4
"For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands."
When you were a child, did you ever stick your arm out of the window of your car as it traveled at high speed? If so, you will remember how the fast-moving air currents would push your arm up, down,...


Eau de Whale Guts

2 Corinthians 2:15
"For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:"

As one perfume expert puts it, "It's beyond comprehension how beautiful it is. It's transformative. Its like an olfactory gemstone."

Coffee – Brimming with Health Benefits

Genesis 1:12
"And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good."

I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but after hearing about its many health benefits, I just might make coffee my drink of choice.

"Leaves of Three, Let Them Be"

1 John 1:7
"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

"Leaves of three, let them be." "One, two, three … don't touch me." Do you know what I'm talking about? I'm talking about poison ivy, a plant with three leaves connected closely together on each stem.

Beautiful But Deadly Woman

Esther 1:11
"To bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: for she was fair to look on."

In Italian, its name means beautiful woman. The belladonna plant first received this name because it was used to make eye-drops for women in ancient Rome. Belladonna made the women appear more seductive by dilating the pupils of their eyes.

This Plant Calls Out to Bats!

Leviticus 11:19
"And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat."

Imagine this – you're a carnivorous pitcher plant with no scent to attract insects. Even worse, though most pitcher plants are designed to kill insects in their pool of digestive fluids, you don't have enough fluid to do the job. What's a poor pitcher plant to do?

"Superb," "Splendid" and "Lovely"

Psalm 50:11
"I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine."

There are 13 species of a brightly plumed little songbird known as the fairy wren. The birds are found in Australia and New Guinea. So colorful are their feathers that the various species go by names like "superb," "splendid" and "lovely." However, even more noteworthy is the birds' unusual behavior.

Coat of Many Colors

Genesis 37:3
"Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours."

The rainbow eucalyptus tree is undoubtedly the most beautiful tree ever. Its bark looks like it was painted by an artist using a palette full of pastel pigments. Surprisingly, this tree's coat of many colors actually comes from the way its bark peels off the tree.

The Living Corkscrew

Matthew 13:4
"And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:"

If you have never opened a bottle of wine, let me give you a little instruction on how to use a corkscrew. First, you puncture the cork with the corkscrew's tip. Then you turn the handle, forcing the metal screw deeper and deeper into the cork. Finally, when it is deep inside the cork, you pull on the handle of the corkscrew, removing the cork from the bottle and spilling wine all over your white shirt!

Tall, Fat and Upside-Down

Luke 6:44
"For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes."

If you want to snack on fruit from a 10-story-high Grandidier's baobab tree, you'd better bring a very tall ladder. That's because there are no branches to climb until you get to near the very top of the tree. And you can forget about wrapping your arms and legs around the trunk. The baobab's  massive cylindrical trunks measure up to 10 feet across, and are quite smooth.

The Science of Parking Your Car

Isaiah 4:6
"And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain."

It's a sunny, sweltering summer day, and you're looking for a place to park your car. Since you know you'll be gone for several hours, you look for a nice shaded spot so your car will be more comfortable when you return. Or it's a blustery winter day with sub-zero temperatures. This time you park your car where there's as much sunlight as possible so that the sunlight streaming through your windows will heat your car's interior while you're gone.

"That's Evolution for You!"

Luke 12:6-7
"Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows."

"That's evolution for you!" That's what Dr. Rick Fairhurst, malaria researcher at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said when talking about malaria parasites that are becoming resistant to drugs that had been effective at fighting the deadly disease.

Vanilla Stumps Evolutionists

Genesis 1:11
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so."

The next time you enjoy a vanilla ice cream cone, keep in mind that vanilla wouldn't even exist if evolution were true. Evolutionists don't have a blooming idea about the origin of a special symbiotic relationship between a particular flower and a very special bee.

Plants Really Do Talk to Each Other

Judges 9:10
"And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us."

For many years, Creation Moments has been sharing information about the ways that plants and trees talk to one another to protect each other from invaders. Many scientists have ridiculed us for making such outrageous claims. But they're not laughing any longer.

Potato Self-Defense

Psalm 91:3
"Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence."

The Peruvian Andes gave the world the potato, which is one of the largest crops in the world today. The problem is, the modern potato is plagued by potato beetles and aphids, which also carry some viral diseases to the plant. Now a wild potato found in the Bolivian Andes is being studied because it seems to be quite resistant to these pests.

Plants Are More Complex than Evolutionists Thought

Job 42:2
"I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee."

According to those who believe that all living things are a result of evolution, life evolved from simple to complex. Plants, which are simpler than animals, are believed to have evolved before animals. When we started learning about the genetic codes of living things, it was expected that plants would have simpler genetic codes than complex living things. This is turning out not to be the case.

God's Mercy Is Sweet

Psalm 119:103
"How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

We hear many warnings these days that tell us not to eat this food, it's full of cholesterol, or that food, it's loaded with fat. It's easy to come to the conclusion that the curse of sin has turned the whole creation against us. But God is a merciful God. He has given us the ability to learn about many of the beneficial foods and medicines that He has created.

God Extends the Olive Leaf to Us

Genesis 8:11
"And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth."

Many plant species undoubtedly became extinct during the Great Flood at the time of Noah. It has been speculated that many of the plants lost forever during the Flood offered better nutrition or medications than many of the plants we know today. This could be why, after the Flood, God allowed the eating of meat for the first time. Meat could make up for the nutrition no longer available in the now-extinct plants.

The Plant that Breathes Through a Snorkel

Genesis 1:11
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so."

Plants need oxygen, and those that live on the land breathe through their leaves. Other plants are designed to live and breathe under water. However, when a land plant is submerged in water, it can drown, just like one of us.

God's Unusual Fig Arrangement

Habakkuk 3:17-18
"Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation."

Completely unrelated creatures that depend entirely upon one another to live and have no way of living without one another pose a very serious challenge to those who claim that all living things evolved. The relationship is called reciprocal altruism.

Delicate, Precise Designs

Matthew 6:28
"And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:"

When a flower lives in harmony with and is dependent upon, say, an insect for fertilization, this is known as symbiosis. Creation Moments programs have given many examples of this, and each one defies the notion that these relationships could have developed by chance over very long times. We have another example today.
