Today's Creation Moment

Does the Bible Provide Unnecessary, Impossible Details?
Genesis 35:17
"Now it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, 'Do not fear; you will have this son also.'"
Sometimes the Bible seems to offer unnecessary or even impossible details as it recounts a historical event. Take, for example, the Genesis account of Rachel's death while giving birth to Benjamin....

The Mystery of the Frogfish

Genesis 1:24
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so."

The frogfish is yet another strange creature for which those who believe in evolution can find no history. Not only do evolutionists admit that frogfish are not related by evolution to any other creature, but also they can find no relationship among 35 of the 41 known species of frogfish!

Frogfish live in many different shallow sea areas. They are called frogfish because they have a Frogfishwide mouth and face like a frog. In addition, their front fins are on the ends of what appear to be very fat frog legs. Yet they also have a fleshy lure, suspended on sort of a pole coming out of their forehead, like the deep water angler fish. And like the angler, the frogfish uses this bait to lure lunch close to its mouth.

Like the platypus, the frogfish unites very different characteristics of several creatures into one unlikely but imaginative creation. Evolutionists are unable to imagine an evolutionary history for this creature. What's more, they cannot figure out how most of the 41 different species of frogfish they have designated might be related to one another.

The frogfish is a dramatic testimony to the fact that God has created all creatures according to His unlimited creativity, fully formed and so unique that sometimes evolutionists cannot even invent an evolutionary history for them.

Dear Lord, nothing is impossible for You. Remind me of this not only when I look at the world You have created, but also when I study Your Word and when I face problems in my life. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
