The Fastest Jaws in the World

 

On Today’s Creation Moments Minute, we meet a creature with the fastest jaws in the world.

 

The trap-jaw ant has a unique approach when he meets a predator. He can fight, flee or do both at the same time with the same movement. The ant has a unique mandible. If the ant faces a threat and decides to attack, it will strike at the threat with its mandibles and in the movement propel itself up to nine inches from the threat almost simultaneously. If the ant decides to flee, it simply does so by snapping its jaws shut against the ground. Its jaw snaps closed at over 136 miles per hour.

 

While it is sometimes necessary to protect ourselves from earthly dangers through fight or flight, neither of these will work for the spiritual dangers we face. For those we must trust the strong arm of our risen Savior.

The Fastest Flower in the Forest

 

On Today’s Creation Moments Minute, we look at the fastest flower in the forest.

 

The tiny bunchberry dogwood flower opens explosively to propel its pollen farther. Scientists wanted to find out how fast the flowers really opened, so they photographed a flower opening with a high speed camera capable of taking 1,000 pictures per second. Unbelievably, the camera proved to be too slow! They then switched to a camera capable of taking 10,000 pictures a second so they could clearly see what was going on. They saw that the petals opened, and in a separate action, the stamens unfolded so fast that they catapulted pollen into the air. All of this happens in four tenths of a thousandth of a second.

 

Truly, there are no limits to the wonders God can conceive and create.

An Elegant Quilt of Relationships

 

How do birds survive the freezing cold weather of winter? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

 

Many birds eat insects through the summer. But as winter nears, they turn to the berries that have been growing and ripening all summer. The high sugar content of the berries' juice helps the birds to quickly build up fat. The freeze on cold fall mornings even helps to increase the sugar concentration in the berries.

 

Even more amazing is that the various types of berries eaten by the birds ripen in a staggered fashion so that berry season is long and the supplies are always available. For example, as the elderberry supply is just about consumed, highbush cranberries are in production. All of these complex, interrelated systems depend on each other in an elegant, fine-tuned design.

 

Mindless chance can’t account for this design in nature ... but a wise Creator God CAN!

Devious Fungus

 

Evolutionary biologists say that fungi are simple, primitive organisms. Is this true? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

 

Biologists are now learning that nothing in God's creation is simple or primitive. Parasites seem to display some of the most clever planning in all creation.

 

A parasitic fungus that infects a roadside weed called catchfly seems to do nothing harmful to the plant. After infection, a profusion of white blossoms will open – even a few weeks earlier than normal. Bees and butterflies will arrive to collect the grains from the flowers. However, the grains they are spreading aren't pollen but fungus spores.

 

This is but one example showing that nothing from God's hand is carelessly done. The lesson for us is that living things don't fit into the evolutionary simple-to-complex scheme. God also wants us to know that He cares about everything He has made, no matter how lowly.

Darwin and His Followers Draw the Wrong Conclusions

 

When it comes to fossils, Darwin got it wrong over and over again. Find out more on Today’s Creation Moments Minute.

 

Charles Darwin wrote that soft organisms could not be preserved in the fossil record because fossils are buried and formed by slow, natural processes. In reality, however, many fossils of jellyfish and squid have been found. This is evidence of rapid, catastrophic burial at the time of the flood. Darwin rejected the flood, so he got the science wrong.

 

It’s not unusual to find deep sea creatures in the lowest levels of fossil-bearing rocks. Fossilized squids have been found, having all of the complete features of modern squids – like fully functional refracting-lens eyes and the "jet propulsion" of modern squid. There was also ink in the fossilized ink sac. After all that time, no ink should have found, so Darwinists were wrong on the age, too.

How Does the Nose Work? (Part 2 of 2)

 

On today's Creation Moments Minute, we continue to look at the organ that's as plain as the nose on your face.

 

The sense of smell is one of our most complex senses. A single seemingly simple odor may contain more than 1,000 different chemicals. One sniff is likely to start activity all over the brain. Scientists have proven that a smell can also trigger emotions and memories, depending on an experience related to that smell. In addition, your sense of smell is linked to your sense of taste, which is why food can seem to be tasteless when you have a head cold.

 

A sense of smell has saved countless lives and brought joy and pleasure to all but those few whose sense of smell has malfunctioned. It is so complex that modern science doesn't know how it works – yet another testimony to the wisdom of our loving Creator.

How Does the Nose Work? (Part 1 of 2)

 

We hate to get nosey, but on today's Creation Moments Minute, we're going to ask you: How does your nose work?

 

Some things don't have to be understood to be appreciated. You can enjoy the smell of dinner cooking without any idea of how your nose works. And believe it or not, you're doing just as well as the most brilliant biologist.

 

While your nose knows how it works, science cannot explain just how we sense scents. It is known that inside our noses, behind the bridge of the nose, are cells that can sense smell. These cells are able to detect and identify airborne molecules from an open rose or a cooking roast. But no one knows just how these cells turn those molecules into the sense of smell that we experience.

 

Tomorrow we look at things we do know about our sense of smell.

Does the Lion's Tooth Bite Your Lawn? (Part 2 of 2)

 

Those dandelions you work so hard to remove from your lawn can't possibly have a good purpose, can they? The answer coming up on today's Creation Moments Minute.

 

Actually, dandelions have many redeeming qualities. Up to 1957, more than 100,000 pounds of dandelion roots were imported annually to the United States for pharmaceutical use. In spring, the dandelion contains mannitol, which is used as a base for pills and a treatment for hypertension and coronary insufficiency. It is also used in manufacturing radio condensers and percussion caps. And many people enjoy a salad that includes young dandelion leaves freshly picked in the spring.

 

While you may not like dandelions in your lawn, the dandelion illustrates that God has not made anything that is without use. It is up to us to put what He has given each of us to use for His purposes.

Does the Lion's Tooth Bite Your Lawn? (Part 1 of 2)

 

Does the Lion's Tooth bite your lawn? This is the Creation Moments Minute.

 

As spring comes to the temperate areas of the northern hemisphere, one of the first signs of spring is the blossom of the Lion's Tooth. This bright yellow flower is also called the Irish daisy, priest's crown, peasant's cloak and yellow gowan. Its other name appears on the sides of bags of lawn care chemicals – the dandelion.

 

The millions of homeowners who wage unrelenting war on the dandelion will probably not be pleased to hear anything good said about the plant. But the dandelion actually has a very interesting history. It was first brought to North America from Europe because of its beautiful flower. You may find this hard to believe, but as late as the early 20th century, seed companies were still selling packets of dandelion seeds for home flower gardens.

 

Tomorrow, more about the dandy dandelion.

Hydraulic Plants and Animals

 

How is a spider like the brakes on your car? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute!

 

Hydraulics are part of our everyday lives. Fluids – like brake fluid in your car – can’t be compressed, so when you step on the brake pedal, fluid is forced from a cylinder into the braking mechanisms attached to your wheels.

 

Our Creator made great use of hydraulic principles in His creatures. We have rigid bones and use fluid to expand and contract our muscles to bend and stretch our legs. But spiders don’t have a rigid skeleton, so it uses muscles to bend its legs, then pumps fluid into its leg to straighten it out.

 

Unless you think that the brake system in your car came together by chance, it doesn't make sense to believe that spiders and other plants and animals came about without a Designer and Creator.
