Genesis 1:21a
“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind…”

It seems that when it came to designing the millions of different creatures in the sea, God used an additional measure of imagination. Part of the reason might be that creatures that live in the near weightlessness of water can be designed with more variation in the shape of their bodies and in the ways they can move. But another factor seems to be that God set out to create certain features that cannot be explained by any human theory.

Sacculina parasitical barnacle on a female swimming crabFor years evolutionists have taught that the embryo recapitulates all the earlier evolutionary stages. This is said to be evidence for evolution, but yet the real evidence continues to show they are on the wrong track. For example, some embryonic forms are so different from the adult forms that the only explanation can be the unlimited imagination of an all-powerful Creator. The adult forms of the Sacculina barnacle look more like a fungus than any barnacle. It was only by studying the embryo of the Sacculina that scientists were able to learn that this weird creature is really a barnacle.

So next time you watch a nature program about the sea in which they speak about evolutionary development, keep in mind that there is much they are not going to tell you. And often what they don’t tell you are the embarrassing facts that point to our Creator!

Heavenly Father, I stand in awe as I marvel at Your unlimited imagination, expressed through the creation. Help this to lead me to trust Your wisdom in my life, too. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
