Buzz Pollination: Evidence for Design

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

During the cold winter months, when the ground is frozen and snow often covers the soil, I spend many hours studying various plant species in preparation for the spring season.  Recently, while studying the details of an old “friend,” Dodecatheon pulchellum, commonly known as the shooting star, I came across a fascinating statement in a book titled, Sagebrush Country: A Wildflower Sanctuary, by Ronald J. Taylor.  It said: “The unusual shape of the shooting star flower...

Plant Evidence of Creation

Posted on Mar 22, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

Evolutionists writing about plants, contend that plants “evolved” over a period of millions of years.  James Brackenbury, in his book, Insects and Flowers:  A Biological Partnership (p.9) wrote, “More than a hundred million years ago the plant kingdom discovered (emphasis mine) that as far as its relationship with insects were concerned, fair exchange was no robbery.  Insects could be duped into rendering a service, i.e., pollination, as long as they were offered a suitable...

Healing Plants

Billy, Mary and Mrs. Jones were in the kitchen baking cookies when Billy yelled, “Oww! Mommy, I burned my fingers and they hurt! Mommy, make them feel better!” After putting Billy’s hand under cold running water, Mrs. Jones asked Mary to snap off a small leaf from the aloe vera plant on the window sill. Then Mrs. Jones dried Billy’s hand, squeezed some gel from the broken end of the aloe and began to gently rub the gel onto Billy’s fingers. “Does that feel better, Billy?”...

Protecting the Plants

“In the beginning, God created a beautiful, perfect world. It was full of life, without sickness, pain, suffering or death,” Mr. Jones told his son Billy and daughter Mary during evening family devotions. “However, Adam’s sin changed all that. When he disobeyed God (sin) and ate the fruit that God had told him not to eat, sin and death came into the world (Romans 5:12).” “Is that why bad things happen, Dad?” asked Mary. “Yes,...

Thank a Plant!

Posted on Dec 8, 2011 in Articles | 0 comments

When you get up in the morning, take a deep breath and thank a plant!  Plants take in the carbon dioxide that we breathe out and they give back oxygen that you and I need in order to breathe. As we get dressed, thank a plant!  Your clothes are probably made from materials that came from plants. On your walk to the kitchen for breakfast, look at the building around you, and thank a plant!  Much of the building materials in your home and furniture probably came from plants....

An Encounter with Muhlenbergia Torreyi: A Grass That Grows in Circles

I had the opportunity to participate in the Grand Canyon Adventure Bus Trip sponsored by the Institute for Creation Research.  It was an unforgettable experience as we toured Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion, Petrified Forest, Sunset Crater, and numerous other sites of interest in Arizona and Utah.  We marveled at God’s creative handiwork and were awed by the evidence of His judgment during the Flood.  Though we saw much geology, I, as usual, was especially interested in the...

Plants Have Immune Systems

Posted on Aug 27, 2010 in Articles | 0 comments

Malachi 4:2a “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings….”   People and mammals have a multi-pronged immune system. When a bacterial infection is detected, cells begin to release nitric oxide, which kills bacteria, and they begin a cascade of other defense strategies. Ultimately, antibodies that directly attack any invader are produced. In recent years, scientists have discovered that even in certain...
