“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:7-10
In my devotional today I read of the remarkable characteristics of the bombadier beetle. This African insect shoots two common materials, hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone from two storage tanks in it’s back. Apart, these substances are harmless, but together they are lethal. One shot of this toxic blend blinds the predator of this insect. A special nozzle inside the beetle mixes the chemicals, enabling it to bombard its foe at amazing speeds.
When I think of the creatures that surround me in this desert, I am equally amazed. I took the above shot on a morning walk. This female dove sitting on her nest, totally protected by the thorns on this Saquaro cactus. She stared at me from her safe vantage point as to rest in the knowledge of her protection….
I am totally convinced that if a person really studies just one aspect of creation, one aspect of our own bodies, we would throw away all thoughts of evolution forever. Instead this theory, this lie, is taught as fact in just about every classroom. How does this happen? It takes much more faith to believe in evolution than God in my opinion. The evidence of a loving Creator is overwhelming to me when I study nature.
I remember being taught evolution back in the sixties but I didn’t pay much attention to it, I chose to believe what I was taught in church and the Bible, and my parents. To me it made much more sense.
What do you think? Is belief in evolution compatible with Scripture? I know some Christians believe that God used evolution as His method of creation. Does it matter how it came about anyway?

I would encourage anyone who believes in evolution to study The Truth Project (www.thetruthproject.org) by Dr. Del Tacket. It also tackles absolute truth and rips a part what the public education system has used to try to brainwash the public. Also, Answers in Genesis is a great one for all things Evolution.
Yes, I have heard of that. I will check it out further. Brainwash is right, it still amazes me that people just swallow this theory as fact. But our God has placed so much evidence to the contrary! Thanks, Lori
I'm with you Lori. There is too much order and design in the universe, how could anyone argue against it? Like Job, we don't have all the answers, but we have faith. Our little minds couldn't comprehend it all anyway. We just know that it is all gift, pure gift.
Yes, truly an unspeakable gift, and why do you and I believe when others faced with the same evidence, do not. That is humbling and a great mystery to me at the same time! Lori
