Whales: Engineered for Water

Psalm 119:140
"Thy word [is] very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it."

We are told by evolutionists that the whale evolved from a cow-like creature that originally lived on land. Let's look at that claim. First, the whale can hear what direction a sound is coming from under water. Neither cows nor humans can do this. Nor is the whale's ear damaged by the pressures deep in the sea. The whale also has other, very complex differences from land-living Whales engineered for watermammals that allow him to cope with the great pressures in the depths of the sea.

If the whale evolved from some cow-like mammal, the entire head would have to be restructured. What we could call the whale's nose is on top of his head, in back of his brain. Land-living mammals, of course, keep their noses on the front of their faces, in front of their brains. Evolutionists would have us believe that in the evolution of the whale, his nose, or at least his nostril, migrated up his face through his brain, and finally ended up where it is today. That's major restructuring!

These are just a few of the miracles we are supposed to believe that mindless evolution performed, even though it can't think or plan. And that's the operative word – believe. The evolutionist's faith in the evolution of the whale shows us that the origins controversy is not science versus the Bible. This debate is about a man-made and sometimes silly religion versus faith in God's revealed Truth!

Prayer: 
Lord, I say with the Psalmist, "Your Word is very pure." Help me to understand it and believe it, despite the arguments raised by those who value their own words more highly than Yours. Amen.
