Monkey Medicine (Part 1 of 2)

What can man learn about medicine by keeping an eye on monkeys? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Folks who are in to natural remedies know that more than a quarter of our drugs come from wild plants. Traditionally, researchers in search of new drugs would ask local folk healers about plants that might be helpful. However, that isn’t always the best approach. In some societies, plants are thought to have healing powers simply because they look like a disease.

Researchers are now learning to follow animals around. Monkeys have led medical researchers to several new medicines. Chimps in Tanzania, for instance, were seen swallowing the unchewed leaves of a tree. Studies of the leaves and the droppings showed that the leaves were not digested. However, the chimps’ digestive system had removed chemicals from the surface of the leaves that kill intestinal parasites.

More about monkey medicine on our next program.

Intelligent Animal Antics

How intelligent are animals? Can they be taught to understand simple sentences? We’ll answer these questions on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

While debate continues about whether chimps can actually learn to communicate with language, there is little question that they understand simple sentences. However, this doesn’t prove any relationship between man and apes. Research also shows that dolphins and sea lions can learn language.

Dolphins also have a few other tricks up their, um, fins. They try to hide from tuna boats by not jumping when a tuna boat is near. If this doesn’t work, dolphins will swim on the right side of the boat because the cranes and nets are usually on the left side.

As one scientist put it, animals are as smart as they need to be, no more and no less. When God made the animals, He was generous with something He has an unlimited amount of – intelligence.

The Rock-Climbing Catfish

 

It's not very pretty, nor is it graceful, but Colombia's rock-climbing catfish has a unique ability among fish. Find out more on today's Creation Moments Minute.

 

The rock-climbing catfish's climbing equipment begins with a powerful sucker mouth. Once it has attached its sucker to the rock, it pulls up its stomach plate and anchors it. With its body anchored, it moves its sucker up the face of the rock and repeats the process. The fish can walk up a 20-foot rock wall in about 30 minutes!

 

Who gave the rock-climbing catfish that powerful sucker mouth? Who gave it such a clever bony stomach plate and the powerful muscles to control it? And who taught it to climb rocks? One opinion says that no one did it. The other says that it was the work of God. The Bible's claim of a Creator is the only one that makes sense!

Ancient Modern Technology

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we look at two modern technological marvels that were around before the time of Christ.

 

It is unfortunate that we so often have the sense that nothing technologically important has happened in human history until modern times. This helps maintain the illusion that humans are indeed progressing and evolving upward.

 

Differential gears, allowing a machine to perform two functions simultaneously, were not used in modern times until 1575. However, a model planetarium using differential gears was found in a ship that sank off Greece in 78 B.C.

 

That’s not all. While Ben Franklin is given credit for discovering electricity, electric batteries dating from 100 B.C. have been found in Iraq.

 

Despite all of our modern gadgets, there is no evidence that humans are any more clever today than they were on the first day they walked the Earth – just as the Bible says.

God’s Chemistry Again Outpaces Man

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we look at how a single fertilized cell divides into many different kinds of cells – including liver cells, skin cells, brain cells, and bone cells.

Human growth factor – a chemical produced by our body – is being studied to see if it is responsible for the development of all those different cells from a single cell. However, this is only one of thirty known chemicals that influence the development of new cells.

Where do all of these incredible chemicals come from? They don't come from laboratories staffed with the best brains in science. They are produced by our bodies. Science should stand in awe at the evident wisdom behind those chemical structures and the way they work. And that's one of the best arguments that we were created by a wise and powerful Creator, not by mindless chemical accidents!

Millions of Noses (Part 2 of 2)

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we take another look at the lobster’s amazing ability to smell and taste.

On a previous program, we pointed out that lobsters are superior to humans in the ability to smell and taste. In fact, their smell and taste is up to a million times more sensitive than ours. Lobsters actually use their sense of smell and abilities to create various chemicals as a means of communication. Both males and females who are ready to mate use scent signals to communicate their availability. They generate still other scent signals to communicate their readiness to move on to each new step in the courtship.

Those of us who believe that the lobster, like all other creatures, was created by God are not surprised to learn that lobsters show much more complexity than evolutionists ever expected. No living thing our Creator has made is either simple or ill‑equipped for life.

Millions of Noses (Part 1 of 2)

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, a lobster shows off its ability to smell and taste.

The lobster, with its external shell, is classified as a crustacean and is considered by evolutionists to be among the earlier evolved creatures. But recent study of the habits and abilities of lobsters are showing that these creatures are unexpectedly complex; their abilities are equal to the supposedly more-evolved creatures.

The lobster's sense of smell and taste is up to a million times more sensitive than ours. Scents are picked up by hair‑like tufts on its appendages. When eating, the lobster carefully samples the scent of each item it eats. The lobster never seems to get bored with a long, leisurely sniff of each morsel.

Though many of us love the taste of lobster, when it comes to taste, the lobster is far superior than man – not exactly what evolutionists like to hear!

Liquid Air Mimics God's System (Part 2 of 2)

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, can liquid air help reduce the number of abortions?

After researchers learned how to use liquid air to help premature babies stay alive, they had to admit that if infants can survive at only 20 weeks, some hard questions are raised about current abortion practices. Yet, pro‑abortion feeling is so strong that researchers felt they had to disown the idea that they wanted even younger premature babies to survive. The development of liquid air could make it more difficult for some to support abortion as we now know it.

It has taken humans thousands of years of medical development to come up with an advance that begins to mimic the way an unborn infant gets oxygen. This makes it even more difficult to believe that mindless nature created the womb and much easier to believe that the womb is the creation of a loving and wise Creator.

Liquid Air Mimics God's System (Part 1 of 2)

Liquid air isn’t something you only see in science-fiction movies. Find out more on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Before birth, a developing baby breathes amniotic fluid, which delivers dissolved oxygen to the lungs. When very premature babies are born, they often have difficulty breathing because their lungs lack a substance that enables them to get oxygen from the air. The result is often chronic lung disease or other permanent damage.

But now researchers are testing something that is popularly called "liquid air." This liquid, a perfluorocarbon, can carry oxygen to the immature lungs of the infant who is not yet ready to breathe air, much like the amniotic fluid the child would be breathing had it not been born prematurely. Animal tests suggest that infants who were born after only 20 weeks of gestation could be helped to survive through the use of this "liquid air."

More about liquid air next time.

Brain Talk

There is a huge difference between computers and the human brain, as we will see on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

While the computer transmits information using electricity, the brain communicates its information using powerful chemicals. Let's say that you accidentally touch a hot pan on the stove. In less than two‑tenths of a second, millions of reactions take place while your brain performs a huge number of operations. As a result, you pull your hand away from the hot pan – very quickly!

Nor does the brain have set paths for messages, like a computer. If we can use computer language for a moment, the brain writes its own programs, doing many complicated tasks of which you and I are never aware.

We know that the computer is the product of careful design, but to argue that the much more complex human brain is an accident of nature makes very little sense!
