Daily Devotional – August 9
A scientist pondered what she was seeing on the oleander shrub. She had been looking at a shrub and noticed a fly moving around, but upon closer examination, it looked like ants hitching a ride on the fly’s wings. But the ants looked too symmetrical, so she got out her microscope. She was astounded to discover one ant “painted” on each wing of the fruit fly (Goniurellia tridens).
Not only was there a perfect representation of an ant on each wing, but it was so well done that each “painting” displayed an ant’s head, thorax, and abdomen (the three parts of an insect), six legs and two antennae. When frightened, the fruit fly fluttered its wings, causing the two ant-like images to move back and forth, confusing a predator and allowing the fruit fly to dart away. How do evolutionists explain how these images got “painted” on the wings? They don’t – they simply state that “evolution did it.” Did the fruit fly have the mental ability to “paint” these images with its DNA code? When we see perfectly designed images with precise detail, we know there must be a designer, and that designer is God.
Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
~ Psalm 123:1
