If you’ve been to the zoo or watched many cartoons, you’ve likely seen a flamingo. Flamingos are one of the most popular and easily recognized birds. Their long, stick-like legs, pink feathers, and big black beaks help them stand out among birds. In fact, flamingos are so iconic that a mayor in Massachusetts declared June 23 as Pink Flamingo Day—only he wasn’t talking about the real bird; he was talking about the pink plastic flamingos used to decorate lawns and flowerbeds!
That’s a silly “holiday,” but the flamingo itself is no silly matter. It’s a beautiful picture of God’s handiwork in creation.
Evolutionists admit that the evolution-of-flamingos narrative is full of holes, theories, and questions.
Evolutionists admit that the evolution-of-flamingos narrative is full of holes, theories, and questions, yet they claim the unique aspects of this type of bird developed about 30 million years ago. However, when we study the Bible book of Genesis, we know the true origin of this fascinating bird. God created birds on Day Five of the creation week, approximately 6,000 years ago (Genesis 1:20–22).
Here is the scientific classification of flamingoes:
There are six known species of flamingo: Greater flamingo, Lesser flamingo, Chilean flamingo, James’s flamingo, Andean flamingo, and American flamingo. Because the flamingo is a “kind” (kind is the biblical word for “family” in the scientific classification), they would have been on Noah’s ark with all the other original “kinds” of animals!
