More than 600 species of plants are known to be carnivorous. Today’s carnivorous plants show just how topsy-turvy the world has become. After Adam’s rebellion, God cursed the earth so that it would bring forth “thorns and thistles”. Plants once meant for good can now cause harm.
Darwin considered the floral biodiversity in the fossil record to be an “abominable mystery” as he could not understand how such variety could appear all at once through evolutionary processes. Evolutionists since Darwin’s time have puzzled over how so many sorts of flowers could evolve so quickly.
The ability of plants to produce food from the sun (photosynthesis) is one of the most important and complex biological processes known to scientists. By God’s design, we have more than just spinach to eat. No, The Creator filled the earth with an unimaginable variety and abundance of foods.
Some realities of nature are so common that we don’t even stop to ask why. Like round trees.
This article addresses these and other questions regarding post-Flood plant survival and dispersal, and consider mechanisms by which this may have occurred.

Fossil has paleobotanists puzzling over the evolutionary origin of floral pollen.
Flower evolution has long been assigned to the Early Cretaceous period. Did Triassic dinosaurs wake up and smell the roses?
After the flood, there is evidence that forests sprang up in Antarctica.
Today's carnivorous plants show how topsy-turvy the world has become after Adam;s rebellion.
Creationists get so focused on finding evidence of design in individual organisms that they overlook the bigger picture—design of the ecosystems.
God placed within small seeds an astonishing ability to move mountains, which even pyramid builders sought to imitate.
Critics have charged that the first two chapters of the Bible contain a contradiction regarding the creation of the vegetation. Tim Chaffey, AiG–U.S., explains.

Do these creepy, crawly, plant experiments at home!
No doubt many News to Note readers ate cranberries this week, as the small fruit plays a big role in the traditional Thanksgiving holiday dinner in the United States. So should we have given thanks to evolution for the cranberry?
The existence of thousands of orchid species staggers the imagination. Yet each species seems perfectly adapted for the insects that pollinate the flower.
Changes in the color of columbine flowers: another example of “evolution in action” that has little to do with Darwin.
This slideshow illustrates the incredible variety of orchids.
It’s another tall tale of “convergent evolution”: two separate plant groups that evolved the same critical building block.
Ron Dudek's favorite subject is carnivorous plants, which provide endless opportunities to share about the amazing designs in God's creation.
