New Antibiotic Discovered Under the African Jungle
Matthew 8:3
"And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed."
Researchers searching for new medicines have been scouring the jungles of the world. Many of our new and most powerful drugs have come from Old and New World jungles. Sometimes researchers learn...

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. The roundworm, C. elegans, lives below the soil surface where it needs no eyes. At the same time, this roundworm needs to sense light because too much exposure will kill it. Researchers noted that the roundworm has only 302 nerve cells. Study of these cells showed that some of them sense light in the same way that similar cells in vertebrates sense light. Evolutionists suggested that this is an example of an early step in the evolution of eyes. However, there is no evolutionary pressure for this roundworm to evolve eyes, because light will kill it. Besides, animals that supposedly evolved long before C. elegans already had eyes. A better explanation is that, like the cave fishes, this roundworm lives in the dark and needs no eyes and would, in any case, be constantly filling with dirt. No, this is not an example of evolution, but of good design by God.

God has designed all things to fit well into their respective environments. The fish that lives in the dark depths of the ocean and has lighted lures, the fishes that live in the darkest caves have no eyes and neither does the roundworm, C. elegans. All these show God’s fingerprints.

Father, You have made all things well, showing Your wisdom and power for all to see. Thank You. Amen.
