Today's Creation Moment

The Stones at Carnac
Genesis 11:8
“So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.”
On the southern coast of the Breton peninsula in Northern France is a small rural town called Carnac. It is a pleasant enough seaside resort. I remember enjoying a couple of days there with my family...

Keeping Males and Females in Balance

Genesis 1:27
"So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."

Have you ever wondered how, over thousands of years, the population balance between males and females remains roughly even?

Science has learned that there seems to be several mechanisms working together to keep things balanced, providing a fail-safe system. Many species have gene transfer systems that always keeping in balanceproduce a one-to-one ratio in the next generation.

However, what happens if, perhaps due to a natural disaster, the balance is lost between males and females in a population? Scientists have been testing a theory that when either sex is significantly underrepresented, its increased contribution to the next generation brings things back into balance. This amazing theory is supported by recent studies on the Atlantic silverside fish. Studies show that even when the population has three males for every female, the ratio returns to 50-50 within four-to-six generations!

According to evolution, males and females should not have developed at all. Evolutionary doctrine says that if males and females should develop, evolutionary forces will not favor sexual reproduction.

The Bible says that God not only created male and female, but that the creation is designed with great wisdom. What science is learning about how balance is maintained between the sexes contradicts evolution and supports the Bible.

Dear Father, You have made all things well! Help me to use the gift of sex in a way that always glorifies You and that my life may be a witness for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
