Have you considered this marvel from biology?


The Sundew Plant traps insects with its long red hairs. The tips of these hairs emits a smell that entices insects to visit. Upon an insect’s arrival, it gets stuck to the thick fluid on one of the leaves. Then the leaf closes around the insect and is digested. By this hunting method, the sundew has gained the essential proteins it needs for life. That an odd way of hunting, the food has come to it! How did all these mechanisms – the exact smell for attraction, the sticky fluid on the leaf, the closing of the leaf and the right digestion chemicals – come about? If one was missing, no lunch for the plant! All had to be present from the start in order to work. Only the Master Designer could have set up this style of hunting right from the beginning.

Evidence from Biology

The insect commonly known as the locust is a remarkable creation. One type of female locust has an ovipositor (a sort of knife) located in front of her mid-section. When she is ready to deposit eggs,  she will land on a suitable tree branch and use the ovipositor to make slits in the bark. She then deposits her eggs inside the bark and goes away to never see her offspring. After the baby locusts hatch, they crawl down the tree, burrow into the ground, and live on the juices from the roots of the tree.  Seventeen years later they come to the surface of the ground as full-grown locusts.

It has been reported that some locusts come to the surface seventeen years later to the day! The theory of evolution can not account for the locust. God’s creativity is beyond comprehension!

The above was taken from Evolution In The Light of Scripture, Science and Sense, P.37 as quoted in A Closer Look At The Evidence, by Richard & Tina Kleiss.
