The Myth Persists!!

Posted on Nov 29, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “In 2007 Science published an article on the similarity of human and chimp DNA titled, “Relative differences: the myth of 1%”.2 Author Jon Cohen queried the continued use of the 1% figure, citing comparisons following the publication of the draft chimp DNA sequence of around 5% difference. And yet the 1% myth is perpetuated in 2012 in the same journal.” Source: https://creation.com/1-percent-myth See also Tuesday’s post from us where we summarized this...

Are Humans and Chimps only 1% Different?

Are Humans and Chimps only 1% Different?

Posted on Nov 27, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  1% was an estimate suggested in 1975 which “came from crude comparisons of very limited stretches of human and chimp DNA that had been pre-selected for similarity.” “The human genome has about 3,000 million ‘letters’. If the 1% figure were correct, this would amount to 30 million letters difference, which would take 10 Bible-sized books to print. This is 50 times as much DNA as the simplest bacterium.3 This is actually a huge difference that far exceeds the ability of...

Our Favorite Termite!

Posted on Oct 11, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Termites are famous for eating wood, especially in houses. Yet, termites cannot digest wood.  It is the microbes in the gut of the termite that break down the wood that allows it to be digested. The termites cannot exist without the gut microbes, and the gut microbes cannot exist without the termites; both need each other in order to survive. Some scientists say this relationship evolved by accident and chance.  Why would termites begin to eat wood if they could not...

Why are the large majority of animals symmetrical?

Posted on Sep 20, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Symmetry in one form or another is just very common. Think of man-made designed machinery – there tends to be symmetry (often bilateral and/or radial). So symmetry is actually really good design. The fact that we have two eyes spread on the same level on our face helps us to gather the depth perception of the environment and helps with the amount you can see (as two eyes help to eliminate blind spots) – so that is a good design feature. For 4-legged creatures,...

Sponges are simple…or are they?

Posted on Aug 16, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Sponges are thought to be very simple organisms. “They have no heart, lungs, stomach, or nerves.” Or are they really simple… “An experiment was done in which the sponge tissue was pressed through a fine mesh; this broke the sponge into individual cells.  Amazingly, the sponge cells rejoined, forming a whole sponge!”   Check it out in this linked video, but notice that scientists “infer” that this is how single cells evolved into more complex organisms. Inferences...

What is faster than a speeding bullet…??

Posted on Aug 14, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  …can break aquarium glass with a single punch, and draw blood from a human finger?  A five-inch peacock mantis shrimp. In the wild, peacock mantis shrimp eat foods such as clams, snails, and crabs – all of which have tough shells.  With one swift knock-out punch, reaching the speed of a 22-caliber bullet, the shrimp shatters these shells and has a tasty lunch.  How did the peacock mantis shrimp’s “club” become so powerful that it can even shatter aquarium...

Black fire beetles love forest fires!

Posted on Aug 9, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  These unique beetles mate, and then the female lays her eggs in the bark of the still smoldering wood.  The eggs hatch and burrow into the tree, free to munch away on trees without interference from the tree’s protective defenses. On the underside of these beetles are tiny pits equipped with infrared radiation detection sensors.  This infrared radiation detection system can detect the invisible heat rays given off by a forest fire up to 50 miles away! Do infrared...

45 minutes without a heartbeat?

Posted on Aug 7, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Marine iguanas are excellent swimmers and search for their food underwater.  Sharks, however, love to eat marine iguanas and have sensitive hearing.  They can hear the heartbeat of an iguana 12 feet away.  So what’s an iguana to do?  Stop its heart from beating?  Incredibly, an iguana can stop its heart for up to 45 minutes!  How do evolutionists explain this ability?  A creature’s ability to stop its heart requires some major internal modifications.  For an iguana to...

FEED ME!!

Posted on Jul 10, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Biologists were curious how the Borneo’s giant pitcher plant got its nutrients.  They discovered an amazing process whereby the plant lures rats and tree shrews with sweet nectar, not to eat them, but to feed them.  During the day, the tree shrews come to lick the nectar from the rim and defecate into the plant. During the night, rats come to lick the sweet nectar and also use the pitcher plant as a toilet. The plant needs the rat, and the rat needs the plant.  Did this...

STICKY FEET!

Posted on Jun 7, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Tree frogs live in trees, sticking firmly to branches and leaves – even walking upside down on these surfaces.  How do they keep from  falling off? It’s all in the feet.  Close inspection of a tree frog’s foot reveals pads with cracks and crevices from which mucus oozes.  This mucus first cleans the dust and dirt off the surface to which the frog wants to cling.  Then more mucus oozes out – creating a thin layer of “adhesive” to grip the surface. These tree...

How Did Feathers…Evolve??

Posted on Jun 5, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Scales are one sheet and thus, for example, snakes shed the whole skin in often one piece. So changes in the genetic code have to happen to change this sheet of scales into individual highly complex feathers. Read more here: “A further difficulty pertains to explaining the origin of feathers. If, as is conventionally maintained, feathers evolved from scales, one has to posit some kind of Darwinian explanation for their evolution from perhaps frayed scales, which must...
