Today's Creation Moment

James Ussher’s Education
Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it
James Ussher is famous, or infamous, depending on your point of view, for his work on creation. It was Ussher who calculated that the Earth was created at 6 pm on the evening before October 23rd 4004...

Where Do Instincts Come From?

Have you ever marveled at the instinctual behaviors of animals? How do birds and butterflies know where (and when) to migrate? How do creatures with hardly a brain at all - like the lowly worm - know how to accomplish tasks they were never taught? Ask an evolutionist, and they'll tell you that instincts are merely favorable traits that are passed on because they improve the animal's ability to survive. But evolutionists can't begin to explain where instincts came from in the first place. Harry Moore, a friend of Creation Moments, recently shared his thoughts with us:

God created all the animals with the instinct to survive and the instinct to take care of their offspring. For instance, the dirt dobber wasp will paralyze several spiders so that the wasp offspring will have a fresh meal to eat. Amazingly, the spider will just stand there and let the wasp sting it!

Most people don't think about instincts. They don't realize that God had to 'hardwire' that special part of the brain in the first generation of all his creatures. Not only did He do that, He made sure the right instinct is in the right body! If He put the wrong instinct (or no instinct) into brains, that would lead to mass extinction. No mistake is allowed in the millions of animals He created. I believe God created Adam and Eve just as it says in the Bible. They and the animals were created as adults, capable (with the right instinct in the right body) of taking care of their offspring.

How sad that lowly worms follow their God-given instincts while atheistic evolutionists like Dawkins, Harris and Dennett deny the instinctual knowledge all humans have that God exists.


Sooner or later they'll realize the mistake. I hope it's sooner and not later.

Thats wonderful... but i wanted to know what part of the brain instincts come from! but i am christian so i was delighted to hear that there are other people who follow god in high places though

I can't believe this - great site man/woman! I'll definitely be adding this to my rss feed list. You do have a rss feed right?

"Amazingly, the spider will just stand there and let the wasp sting it!"
stuff like this that makes me proud to not be born into a Christian society unlike you - expletive deleted - idiots.

Thanks for your comments, HURR DURR. It's the last one you'll be permitted to make here unless you start acting like an adult.

I have to disagree with this post. I am a Christian who practices internal medicine and has PhD in biology. I believe that science is firm and the data cannot be swayed. We as Christians should take a more modern outlook at how life on this planet was originated. The first living prokaryote God placed on earth. From there, with the setting God created, life was able to thrive and evolve into what is all here today.
