Today's Creation Moment

What Did History Do with the Dinosaurs?
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."
We are often asked why, if the Bible's account of creation is true, don't dinosaurs appear in any historical documentation. After all, according to the Bible, both the great land creatures and humans...

Seeing Colors

2 Corinthians 4:3-4
"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."

The eye, with its incredibly sensitive color vision, is increasingly being recognized as a marvel as we learn more about how it works. The eye is able to detect the smallest measure of light known to physicists. These units are called photons.

The normal human eye detects color, using principles similar to those used by our color television. Seeing ColorsWithin the eye are three kinds of light absorbing molecules. They are found in the millions of cone shaped cells in the retina. Each one of these three molecules absorbs one of the primary colors – red, green or blue. How could "natural forces" have accidentally stumbled onto the very principal of physics upon which color rests?

The sensitivity required for color vision is also astounding. There is only 75 millionths of a meter difference between the wavelengths of blue and green light. This size difference is so small that it could not be noticed even under the most powerful light microscope. Yet, the eye has no trouble at all detecting the difference.

In his book On the Origin of Species, Darwin wrote, "To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree." On this one point we agree most certainly with Charles Darwin.

I thank You, Lord, for the ability to see the beauty and wonder of Your creation. I ask you to give sight to those who are spiritually blinded by the idea that impersonal evolution could have designed our ability to see so that, seeing You, they may be led to a relationship with You through Jesus Christ. In His Name. Amen.
