Just for Fun!! Sea Anemones, Hermit Crabs, Watermelon, Corn & More!

When I look at the world around me I see a creation which is too amazing, too intentional for it to have just "happened" on its own. While the science is clear, life evolved, it is also clear it could not have done so without  God designing evolution to be the means by which He created all life.

Creation is so specific, and amazing! There are creatures and plants which could not survive without the other; for example, did you know . . . 
  • Sea anemones (Calliactus spp) hitchhike on the back of hermit crabs, scoring a ride across the seabed and extending their tentacles to eat the crab’s leftovers. Crabs actively recruit these passengers. After poking an anemone with its pinchers – causing it to release its grip from its current home – the crab holds it in place so the anemone can reattach to the crab’s own shell.
  • In return, the anemones fend off hungry octopuses and other predators using their barbed tentacles. The crabs return the favour by driving away creatures which eat anemones, such as starfish and fireworms.
I'm just not able to believe this, "just happened" without God. Creation is too specific for things to have, "just happened". For example, did you know . . . 
  • Each watermelon has an even number of strips on the rind. 
  • Each ear of corn has an even number of rows. 
  • Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains. 
  • Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one. 
  • All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundredfold - all even numbers. So one row has an even number and the next row an odd number. 

Creation leaves me amazed and thankful for how it is so perfectly designed! Share this with your grandchildren and go on a nature walk or visit to the zoo to look at some of God's amazing creation!
