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...

Weaver Ants

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

Weaver ants are among the rulers of the forest canopy. Unlike most species of tree-dwelling ants, they are not dependent upon finding hollow branches or gaps under the bark of their host. These industrious insects make their own homes in unique fashion.  When a fertile queen establishes a new colony, she finds a suitable leaf on an uncolonized tree. She lays the first brood of eggs and feeds and protects them until they reach maturity. At that point the workers take over...

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...

Brown Pelicans – Fishing, Flying Wonders

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

The Jones family was crossing Galveston Bay by Galveston, Texas on the car ferry. They had left their car on the parking deck and climbed the stairs to the observation deck. “Mom and Dad! Look!” Billy pointed and shouted. “A big bird just crashed into the water!” “It didn’t crash, Billy,” laughed his mother, Mrs. Jones. “That is a Brown Pelican, and it is fishing. Watch … it just tipped its beak up and swallowed a fish.” “You mean he caught a fish?” asked Billy. “Yes,...

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...

Our Amazing Kidneys

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

In order for us to live, God has designed our bodies with some very special organs that all have certain jobs to do … the brain, the heart, the lungs, the kidneys, and many more. Every bit as important as our hearts are our two kidneys. You need at least one kidney to live! Our two dark red kidneys are bean-shaped (kidney beans have the same shape) and are each about the size of an adult fist. They are located just under our back ribs, on each side of our spine. The kidneys...

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...

Camels – Desert Marvels!

Posted on Aug 23, 2013 in Articles | 3 comments

Sporting one or two humps on its back, a bushy clump of hair on top of a small head, stumpy little ears, big bushy eyebrows, a groovy nose with a split upper lip, big yellow teeth, long legs with gnarly knee caps, and huge feet, the camel has to be one of the more comical creatures living today. On top of all that, they have really bad breath, spit, and sway as they walk! Although they might look funny, each and every one of these parts was designed by God for a camel to be...

Those Amazing Frogs

Posted on Jul 26, 2013 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Early this spring, I saw several of our “pet frogs” sitting by our irrigation pond that had recently filled with water. They had survived another cold winter. Have you ever asked yourself, where frogs go in the winter? As we look into how they survive harsh, freezing conditions, we see how God has provided for the needs of His creatures. Because frogs don’t make their own body heat, they are considered cold-blooded. They depend on other sources of heat to keep warm – the...
