A Tuft Mystery for Evolution

Psalm 29:2
"Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness."

Those of us who accept our creation as the work of the Creator find many examples of what seems to be His wonderful creativity – creativity just for the sake of creativity! These add to our appreciation of the creation and stir us to learn more of the wonders of His creative thought.

The evolutionist has robbed himself of the opportunity for that wonder. For the evolutionist, Tuft Mysteryeverything must have a reason related to survival. Some evolutionists even study why people think flowers are beautiful, while we enjoy flowers' beauty and fragrances.

The fact that many rabbits and hares have a tuft of longer hair in their upper chest is one mystery to evolutionists. This mane seems to be present in both the males and the females of one family of rabbits and hares all through the year. Science articles are full of speculation about how this mane might help in the struggle for survival. However, no one has been able to offer a convincing argument. Finally, someone suggested that the mane may have no survival value at all. However, evolutionists are so committed to their faith that the magazine Science Digest called this a "lame conclusion."

The Creator has given His creatures many things to help them survive. One of those things that He knows makes life better, but for which evolution cannot account, is sheer beauty. Let's not forget to thank Him for that too!

Prayer: 
I thank You, Lord, for beauty. Help me to see Your hand more clearly in the beauty around me, so that I may praise You more boldly before others. Amen.
