Surprising Facts About the Eye (Part 2 of 2)

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, even more eye-opening facts about the human eye!

 

Studies have shown that people with dark eyes generally have faster reaction times than people with light-colored eyes. Brown-eyed people generally are better at tennis while blue-eyed people generally do better at golf.

 

Our eyes secrete different kinds of tears. Normal tears contain bacteria-fighting chemicals produced by cells in the lining of the eyelid. Emotional tears contain hormones released by the body in response to stress, including a natural painkiller.

 

One more eye fact: The vitamin A in carrots is necessary for the proper working of the rods in your eye. The rods themselves are responsible for night vision. On a clear, dark night, a healthy eye can see the light from a single candle 25 miles away!

 

As the Bible exclaims in praise of God, "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

Surprising Facts About the Eye (Part 1 of 2)

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we take a close-up look at the amazing human eye.

 

Our eyes do more work and tell more about us than many people realize. These amazing organs are so closely tied in to the brain that they have been referred to as part of the brain.

 

Your eyes were among your first organs to form. Within four weeks of fertilization, an unborn infant's eyes begin to form. Interestingly enough, many newborns can move their eyes independently of each other, which can be a shock to unsuspecting parents. Usually the eyes are working together within a few months. However, those eye muscles will get more of a workout during our lifetimes than any other voluntary muscle. During any 24-hour period, our eyes will move about 100,000 times. That's equivalent to walking 50 miles every day!

 

Find out even more eye-opening facts on tomorrow’s program.

Bacteria That Dissolve Steel

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, meet a real creature that you'd expect to see in a terrifying science-fiction film!

They work silently and in the dark. While most of Earth's inhabitants need oxygen for life, they prefer to build their own environments where there's no oxygen. Then they go to work. Using complex chemistry, they begin dissolving metal. They can make a sixteenth-of-an-inch hole through an inch-thick metal pipe in six months. Stainless steel isn't so tough – it doesn't slow them down a bit. Even modern space age metals like titanium can't stand up to them.

These strange-sounding creatures are called sulfate-reducing bacteria.

Despite our modern scientific sophistication, moth and rust continue to afflict our efforts. This is God's way of reminding us that we, along with the creation, are afflicted with sin and are in need of the forgiveness of sins that is ours only through Jesus Christ.

Amoeba Midwives

 

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we look at an amoeba that helps other amoebas to give birth!

 

Ever since Old Testament times, midwives have been helping mothers during the birthing process. Unbelievably, scientists who were studying amoeba behavior observed some very strange behavior which suggests that some amoebas, too, employ midwives.

 

All amoebas reproduce by splitting in half. Scientists studying amoebas found a particular species that often failed to successfully split. But whenever this happened, other amoebas moved in and helped the division process. The amoeba having difficulty dividing actually releases a chemical that summons help. Midwife amoeba have been seen traveling up to 40 times their own length to help.

 

The Bible teaches us that God cares for all of His creatures. Here we see that He provides even for the needs of the lowly amoeba. How much more does He love us and provide for our needs!

The Strange Behavior of Orchids (Part 2 of 2)

 

Did you know there’s an orchid that looks almost exactly like a bee? This is the Creation Moments Minute.

 

Consider the bee orchid. If you look it up in a book or the Internet, you’ll see that it has a flower that looks just like a female bee. The purpose here is to attract male bees to a position that will load them with pollen. How can it be scientific to suggest that a plant purposely restructured itself to fool bees into pollinating it?

 

God has purposely made it impossible to explain the creation without Him. He did this not simply so that we would see that He is real. His purpose is much greater. God seeks a personal relationship with you and has made that possible through the saving work of His Son, Jesus Christ, for us. It is to Christ that He would ultimately draw our attention.

The Strange Behavior of Orchids (Part 1 of 2)

 

Today and tomorrow we look at the strange behavior of orchids. This is the Creation Moments Minute.

 

Did you know there are between 10,000 and 15,000 species of orchids? This huge variety of orchids offers a multitude of different flower shapes, colors and sizes. Each unique shape, color and size is perfectly suited to the bees, butterflies, bats, moths, flies and birds that are involved in that orchid's pollination.

 

Those orchids that use birds as pollinators have no scent. Instead, they offer the brightest of colors, appealing to sight – the birds' strongest sense. Evolutionists call this "co-evolution." However, giving it a name doesn't explain it. How did these orchids know that the bird's strongest sense is sight? And how were these orchids able to perform genetic recombination on themselves so that they could develop their bright colors? No, giving something a scientific-sounding name doesn't make naturalistic claims any more scientific.

Smart Trees and Clever Bugs

 

How smart is the smartest tree you ever met? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute why that isn’t such a silly question.

 

Botanists are learning that some trees have elaborate defenses against insect pests. For instance, cottonwood trees set up an elaborate zone defense when attacked by aphids. Some branches will manufacture poisons to resist the aphids, while leaves on non-poisonous branches simply fall off the tree. This allows the aphids to eat only poisoned leaves. 

 

However, sometimes insects are almost as clever as trees. Take the pink sawfly larva for example. It concentrates and stores the toxic oils of the eucalyptus leaves it eats. When threatened, the worm-like larva rears up and spits droplets of the poisonous oils at its attackers.

 

There is no level at which the creation fails to show forth intelligence and planning. Every level of creation glorifies God!

Coma Healing? (Part 2 of 2)

 

Should the life of a person in a coma be prolonged or ended? That's the subject of today's Creation Moments Minute.

 

Medical researchers now tell us that a coma is not the direct result of an injury but a condition that is under the control of the brain. Scans of brain activity show unusual activity in the brain centers controlling muscle activity. These findings suggest that people who spend months or even years in a coma or vegetative state may be actually in the process of returning to health.

 

Modern science admits that it remains largely ignorant about the human brain and how it works. In some cases, people who may have been undergoing a normal healing process might have been killed by those who support euthanasia. The Bible has the best advice all the time. Only God can give life, and only He knows when it is over.

Coma Healing? (Part 1 of 2)

 

Is it all right for the life of a person in a coma to be terminated if that is what the family wants? We look at this controversial issue today on the Creation Moments Minute.

 

Pastors or clergymen are sometimes called upon to stand with saddened families by the bedside of a loved one who is in a coma. The coma is usually the result of a serious injury and some have wondered if it is really the brain’s strategy for healing itself. Now both experience and science are beginning to suggest that a coma is indeed part of the brain’s strategy for healing.

 

Research shows that when a person is in a coma, the brain is actively working to suppress normal conscious activity. So ending the life of a person in a coma might be the worst thing to do. We'll talk more about this next time.

Colorful Life in the Goldfish Bowl

 

Can you guess what man has in common with goldfish?  We’ll find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

 

Our brains have the amazing ability to adjust and correct the colors we see to colors that are expected. This ability is called color constancy. Researchers have discovered that goldfish can also adjust for color constancy. Scientists had always thought that goldfish were too primitive and had brains that were too small to even see color, much less provide color constancy.

 

There is no such thing as a simple living thing. Nor can living things be arranged on a scale from simple to complex, the way many scientists would like. Color vision and color constancy were not produced by trial and error genetic accidents, they are abilities given by the Creator. He can give these abilities to any creature He wants and has done so, that the entire creation might glorify Him!
