Creation Devotional August 22 - Design

Daily Devotional – August 22



One of the most beautiful moths in the world is the Atlas moth (Attacus atlas) from the forests of Southeast Asia. Most people are impressed with this rare moth’s incredible 12-inch wingspan, making it one of the largest living insects of today. The patterns on the moth’s wings are gorgeous. But take a closer look at the moth’s wing tips. They resemble a cobra’s head, complete with staring eyes and a grimacing mouth. What better way to scare off predators than to have a poisonous snake “painted” on your wings!


The Chinese even call this moth “snake’s head moth” in Cantonese. So, here we have a moth scaring off its predators by looking like a cobra. If that’s not amazing enough, the moth even drops to the ground and fans its wings in a movement similar to a snake’s head when threatened. Evolution would have you believe that this moth’s disguise happened by accident and chance over millions of years. Random changes do not produce patterns that look like other animals. So, how do you explain a cobra pattern on a moth? The pattern-maker gave it this defense mechanism from the fall, and that patternmaker is God.


All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.

~ John 1:3
