A NEW ADVENTURE EVERYDAY

A NEW ADVENTURE EVERYDAY

Posted on May 18, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Two mornings ago, as I was brewing my morning cup of coffee, I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a deer nibbling the leaves on one of our trees. It began to move off, so with coffee in hand, I adjourned to our living room for my morning Bible study. As I entered the living room I looked out the windows to see two more deer grazing in the yard. Even in the faint light, I could see that they were both does. Presently the other deer, that I had seen earlier,...

Ask Now The Beasts

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Kid's Think & Believe Too! | 0 comments

“Hey, kids! Head on out to the flower garden, while I get a book from the library,” said Mr. Jones.  “I want to show you some of God’s wonderful creatures.” “What’s up, Dad?” asked Billy. “This morning I was reading my Bible, and in Job, chapter 12, verse 7, it says, ‘But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee;’ I wondered, what could the animals teach me?” “Animals can’t talk, Dad.  How can they teach us anything?” asked Mary. “Actually Mary, some animals can...

The Horned Lizard

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

What is a toad that is not really a toad at all? It’s the Phrynosoma, or Horned Lizard, found only in the western areas of the United States and Mexico. Usually called a Horned Toad, Horny Toad, and even Horned Frog, the Horned Lizard is neither a toad nor a frog. In fact it is not an amphibian at all. It is a reptile! The nicknames come from the horned lizard’s rounded toad-like face, and because it has a short, wide, and squat body like that of a frog or toad. Horned...

Hurrah for Ants!

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Many of us are familiar with the children’s counting song, “The ants go marching one by one…” Scientists have now discovered that at least some species of ants do appear to be counting their steps when they go marching out in search of food.  After training some desert ants to look for food in a specific location, scientists investigated how the ants could consistently locate the same source of food with seeming ease. It is known that ants will leave scent markers to guide...

Mutualism – Helping One Another

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Kid's Think & Believe Too! | 0 comments

“You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.” Have you ever heard that saying? It means that if you do something for someone and they do something for you, both of you will benefit and be helped in some way. Sometimes plants or animals help each other, and when both get something good from the help it is called mutualism (myoo-choo-uh-liz-uhm). Here are just a few examples of mutualism in God’s Creation:  The Snapping Shrimp and the Goby – The snapping shrimp is designed to...

Bee Wings

“Dad, today I heard that science has proven that the bumblebee can’t fly!  That’s crazy!  Look at all the bees flying around in our flower garden, “said Mary. “I’ve heard that story, but what is the question I’ve always told you to ask?” asked Mr. Jones. “’What’s the evidence?’, or ‘How do they know?’,” said Mary. “That’s right.  In this case I found out that the story got started about 70 years ago in France when two scientists were looking at the large, heavy body and...

Train Your “Cubs” for Survival

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

In July, we were in Montana to teach two weekend creation family camps at Glacier Meadows Lodge and teach a church seminar in Chester, MT, in between. Since we had a couple of days off between seminars, we decided to take the opportunity to do some hiking in Glacier National Park.  On the way to one of the hiking spots, we came across a “once in a lifetime” show. A mama bear was trying to teach her three cubs to swim across a river. She swam part-way out into the water...

Spotted Owls and Sacred Cows

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Spotted owls have become the butt of many jokes, much derision, and sometimes outright hatred by conservative commentators, unemployed lumberjacks, and struggling timber-town businessmen.  The raging controversy isn’t the owls fault, though.  They are just high-profile pawns in a very heated war of worldviews. Whether the owls are even “endangered” is a matter of debate.  The “data” varies depending on the viewpoint of the researcher.  The real issue, though, is much deeper...

Bio-Inspiration

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Bio-inspiration means that manufacturers and engineers are inspired by the tremendous design of living creatures to make useful human “inventions.” For instance, Velcro was copied from the hooks of the common burr which is frequently picked up in the fur of a dog. Sonar and radar were inspired by bats and dolphins. Very recently a new fabric-adhesive was inspired by the foot of the gecko lizard. The gecko’s ability to walk upside down on the ceiling and even on glass...

A Day On The Beach

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Kid's Think & Believe Too! | 0 comments

The Jones family had been enjoying a wonderful vacation at Fort Myers Beach on the coast of Florida. That morning they had driven to one end of the island to visit Lovers Key State Park. They had hiked some of the trails around the inner islands and bays and seen some wonderful wildlife – an osprey catching a fish, another osprey eating a fish, many snowy egrets wading in water looking for fish to eat, and a roseate spoonbill feeding in the mud flats. Billy and Mary really...

The Dazzling Dragonfly

Posted on Sep 6, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

If you are ever around lakes, ponds, streams or wetlands, keep your eyes open for a fascinating and beautiful long-winged insect. You might see one perched on a reed, warming in the sun, with its wings outstretched. Or you might see one zooming over the water like a little supercharged helicopter, zigzagging and darting this way and that. They might race towards you at a terrific speed, stop in an instant, hover, move backwards, buzz to the left, and dart to the right,...

The Amazing Bearcat

Posted on May 24, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

The bearcat is neither a bear nor a cat, but is the common English word for the Malaysian “Binturong” (Arctictis binturong).  It is a type of civet in the same family as the mongoose that lives in the trees of tropical and subtropical forests of Southeast Asia.  Its fur is black with gray, white, or gold tips.  It can weigh 30-40 pounds and measures 46-73 inches long (which is almost 50% tail!). The bearcat is one of only two carnivores to have a prehensile tail.  This...
