It is important to avoid seeing animal abilities and behavior as evidence for an unverifiable evolutionary past. Evolutionary thinking pretends we humans are just animals, not accountable to God or responsible to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Creator and Redeemer.
God created many different kinds of animals that are highly intelligent. Animal cleverness isn’t a legacy of evolution. Even while we appreciate the intelligence God gave animals and marvel at their capabilities, we should remember that humans are different from animals in one important way: we were created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27).
How do bees know which flowers to visit to load up on nectar? Which flowers have already been plundered? A team from the U.K.’s University of Bristol believes the attraction is electrical. God created plants and animals able to reproduce successfully, so we can conclude He created them with these symbiotic relationships, or with the ability to adapt to form them.
At the beginning of creation, there was no death and animals were created to be vegetarian. But people often claim that animals like spiders, birds of prey, and cats could not possibly have survived as vegetarians. Is such a claim true?
Many animals, such as chimps, dolphins, and crows, are remarkably smart. These cleverly designed creatures clearly display the intelligence of their Creator.
After animals came off the Ark following the Flood and spread across the earth, they established complex migratory patterns that continue to puzzle scientists.
The herbivorous diets of many traditionally carnivorous animals provide a glimpse into the original creation when all animals were vegetarians.
While some animal fathers were created to simply pass on their DNA and then stay away, God created others to go above and beyond to protect and provide.
Astonishing examples of high intelligence in “lower” animals point to an all-knowing Creator.
It took human intervention to transform wild beasts into domestic farm animals and household pets. So when did this transformation happen?
The Creator equipped numerous animals, large and small, with astonishing tools to find their way as they migrate around the world.
Evolution can’t account for an animal’s ability to regrow limbs or heal its body. But regeneration like this points to an all-wise Creator.
These animal escape artists know how to get away in style.
It’s not personal. Just survival.
Scientists are constantly finding new ways that animals use tools.
These absent parents, extortioners, and interlopers are a reminder of the fall. But their intelligence showcases the Creator’s brilliant design.
Nature isn’t all peace and beauty. But even the dark side of creation can tell us something about God’s grace.
References to Noah’s Ark abound in the culture and even have been used to describe recent efforts to store strains of microbes (instead of animals).
Evolutionists have serious problems with interspecific animal adoptions, while creationists are in a much better position when it comes to discussing the topic.
Is this an example of evolution in action or a designed adaptive feature input into the lizard kind’s genome?
Despite all our advances with human flight, we don’t come close to matching the wonder of birds and their feathered flight.
Birds are smarter than primates, according to a study published in a recent issue of PNAS.
The only positive evidence supporting the assertion that these dinosaurs were dancing for mates is that some modern birds engage in ritual courtship dances.
The colugo glides like no other mammal on earth and proves that our ingenious Creator knows how to surprise us.
With mice and men, practice makes perfect, but a mouse with a man’s FOXp2 gene achieves perfection faster.
Some scientists think contagious yawning is connected to the ability to empathize. Chimpanzees “empathize” as they mature, but do they really understand?
Wildlife documentaries are too family friendly, complains UK academic.
Bonded bird behavior in same-sex partners: what does it mean?
Do animals have a “right to privacy”? Or are such “animal-hugger” claims the logical consequence of evolutionary views only?
It may not be dinosaurs living side-by-side with humans, but it’s close!
Out for a vigorous hike and lose your way? No need to reach for that compass; just be on the lookout for deer or cattle instead.
Charitable rats are making headlines after a study published in PLoS Biology proffers evidence that “rats who received help in the past were more likely to help another unknown partner.”
An experiment conducted in the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda has provided possible support for chimp altruism.
… the average young Australian, who believes what he is taught, believes the evolutionary dogma that he is only an animal who arrived by chance, lives by his wits, survives to breed and will die …
The drought had been rather severe that summer, and the normally moist woodland was dry and parched. Suddenly, out of the brush, a chunky bird was frantically searching the soil for earthworms.
