Flying Spiders (Part 1 of 2)

 

Spider silk is a silent witness to the incredible ingenuity of the Creator. This is the Creation Moments Minute.

 

Spider silk begins as a liquid protein made by silk glands on the spider's abdomen. Spiders make many kinds of silk for different uses. As the liquid silk is forced through the spider's spinnerets, it begins to dry. The spinnerets pull and stretch the silk, creating just the right kind of silk for the spider's use. Though the result seems thin and weak to us, ounce for ounce, spider silk is stronger than steel.

 

Web-building spiders make two types of silk for their traps. The basic structure of the web is made of strong, non-sticky silk. Then the spider adds a sticky, elastic silk to trap its prey. Some webs are irregular, others are flat and sheet-like, while still others are shaped like funnels.

 

Tomorrow we look at the more unusual ways spiders use their silk.

Life that Can’t Exist

 

As we’ll see on today’s Creation Moments Minute, each new scientific discovery – especially the unexpected ones – tells us more about the Creator.

 

One relatively recent unexpected discovery was the hot water vents deep below the ocean's surface. Where the earth's crust has split apart, hot water gushes out. This water reaches temperatures hot enough to, say, cause a piece of paper to burst into flame.

 

It was in this environment that scientists made an even more amazing discovery. They found bacteria that could live in the almost 700-degree water. Scientists are still trying to learn how these creatures live at temperatures that would destroy the normal biochemistry of life.

 

Each new discovery tells us a little more about the work of our wonderful Creator. That's what science was originally intended to do. Keep that in mind when you hear someone say that belief in the Creator makes doing science impossible.

Ant Mathematics

 

The common ant doesn't need a calculator or computer to work out math problems. See why on today's Creation Moments Minute!

 

Can ants count? It seems so! When scout ants find an item of food, they take it back to the nest. If the food item is especially good but too big to carry, the scout will return to the nest to get help. Scientists have discovered that ants apparently size up the task ahead before getting help so they can return with enough help, but not too much.

 

Clearly, mathematical ability is part of the ants' amazing ability to plan and carry out a task! They were doing nothing more than what their Creator taught them as they followed the planning principle Jesus reminds us of in Luke 14:28 – count the cost of the project before you begin it!

American Flashers

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute – fireflies that flash in unison!

 

Some firefly species in the eastern United States, as far north as Pennsylvania and all the way down to Georgia and Texas share a common trait. The males synchronize their flashes, creating a dramatic light show. Some species flash in unison for hundreds of flashes, producing shows that last up to three or four minutes.

 

Researchers have tried to explain this complex behavior in what is supposed to be a simple species. What troubles them is that every explanation they come up with credits the firefly with having some sort of pacemaker in its tiny brain.

 

To those with an evolutionary view, this is unacceptably complex. But for those of us who know we have an all‑wise Creator, the synchronized flashing of fireflies is but another sign of the excellence of His work.

The Fish that Goes Fishing (Part 2 of 2)

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we’ll see how the angler fish attracts prey in the darkness one mile below the surface of the ocean.

 

Like many other fish at such depths, the angler is able to generate her own light. In her case, only the bait lights up that’s situated at the tip of her long dorsal fin, so she stays invisible to her victims.

 

In His imaginative creativity, God was pleased to place creatures a mile below the surface of the sea. Yet in His mercy He has provided them with everything they need to make their living there. Likewise, you may not know why God has placed you into a particular situation right now. If He so cares for the creatures a mile below the waves, how much more does He care for You. And He has even included a light for you in His Son, Jesus Christ!

The Fish that Goes Fishing (Part 1 of 2)

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we take our first look at a fish that goes fishing.

 

A family of fish that live in the depths of the sea actually go fishing – pole, dangling bait and all. This is only natural, since they like to eat fish.

 

This group of fish is collectively called the angler fish. The front dorsal spine in the female is located on her head. It is much longer than any of the other dorsal fins and has a fleshy bait on the end. When hungry, she sits very still and dangles the bait in front of her mouth. It doesn't take long before something swims up to investigate this bait as its possible lunch. But before it can think about taking a sample, the angler has turned the tables and eaten her own lunch.

 

The angler has more tricks up her sleeve, as we’ll see on tomorrow’s program.

Designed for Flight (Part 2 of 2)

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we pick up where we left off yesterday and show that birds are not the living descendents of the dinosaurs.

 

Besides their powerful breast muscles, birds also need an extremely high metabolism and blood pressure to deliver the energy those muscles need for flight. Birds have a higher metabolism than any other creature; they also have the necessary high blood pressure. Finally, as is well known, birds need light skeletons. The man-o'-war has a wingspan of seven feet. But its entire skeleton weighs only a few ounces – less than its feathers!

 

Even the most clever rebuilding of a reptile cannot produce a bird. In fact, birds have very little in common with reptiles. The entire being of the bird, from body to brain, has been specially designed for flight by a Creator who clearly knows everything there is to know about flight.

Designed for Flight (Part 1 of 2)

 

Don’t believe what evolutionists and Hollywood tell us about dinosaurs evolving into birds. This is the Creation Moments Minute.

 

Many textbooks tell young people today that birds are modified reptiles. Suppose, they say, that millions of years ago the scales on some reptiles began to fray along the edges. In time, they say, the frayed scales turned into feathers and birds were born. The elegance and beauty of the feather make this story hard to believe. The bird's feather is only a small part of the complete flying system of the bird. Even with very careful planning and redesigning, a reptile doesn't have what it takes.

 

For instance, birds need massive breast muscles for flight. In some birds, 30 percent of the body weight of the bird is breast muscle. By comparison, in humans, breast muscles are only about 1 percent of body weight.

 

Tune in tomorrow for more!

Amoeba Society

It's not exactly a plant, but it's not completely an animal either. So what is it? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

In the normally moist forest floor, single amoebas invisible to the naked eye, live in the moisture and food provided by the decaying vegetation. But if the floor of the forest begins to dry or food is scarce, the amoebas congregate. As they come together, they combine into a tiny slug, about a millimeter long and large enough to see. This group now behaves like a little creature and crawls to meet others of its kind. More groups join to form a mass of spores at the top that "hatch" into individual amoebas when conditions are again just right for them.

There is no simple life form; even cellular slime mold shows the Creator's touch in its wonderful complexity and amazing way of life.

A Dangerous Wonder

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we take a close look at the rattlesnake – a most remarkable wonder of God’s design.

Did you know that the eyes of the rattlesnake are different from all other back-boned animals? Rattlesnakes have no eyelids, but their eyes are protected by clear cover-plates. Their yellow lenses slide in and out like binoculars – and, like built-in binoculars, provide detailed magnification of distant objects.

The rattlesnake has many more ways of sensing its environment than we do. Its lower jaw is linked, through fine bones, to its inner ear. With this arrangement, if the rattlesnake places its lower jaw on the ground, it can hear distant footsteps – its jaw acting just like a stethoscope.

Though we lack some of the rattlesnake’s abilities, we, too, are fearfully and wonderfully made by the same Creator, and God has given us even more wonderful abilities to use in grateful service to Him.
