Daily Devotional – April 6
Have you heard of a cave weta? This New Zealand insect lives in mountain top caves that can experience -10 oF during the winter. This insect actually freezes solid for three months - showing no brain activity or respiration. Then in the spring, it thaws out and proceeds with life as normal – doing whatever big bugs enjoy doing in the spring. They can go through six such freeze-thaw cycles in their lifetime, often living up to six years.
When humans freeze, crystals form in our blood, bursting our cells and causing our death. Wetas, however, have high levels of glucose, a sugar which keeps these crystals from forming. Evolutionists assume this all happened by accident and chance. What would have happened to the first weta that had not yet evolved a high enough sugar level in its blood? We’d have a dead weta! Evolutionary advancement would have ended, along with the first wetas! God had to design the cave weta to survive freezing from the beginning. Creation is shouting God’s glory!
O Lord my God, thou art very great;….
