Daily Devotional - January 11
A wonder of the ocean is the porcupine fish. This creature has three lines of defense. If a predator comes too near the porcupine fish, it quickly gulps a large amount of water, almost doubling its size. Hopefully, the fish is now too large to be swallowed. If the predator persists, the second line of defense kicks in, and 2 inch long spines stand out in every direction, making the fish look like an underwater porcupine.
The third line of defense is poison within its body. If a predator eats the fish, it will get sick and won’t likely eat one again. The porcupine fish does not have many predators!
How do evolutionists explain the way these three lines of defense came about over millions of years? Even Darwin in his book The Voyage of the Beagle did not try to explain how the porcupine fish got its three lines of defense. We know! The Creator designed this fish to survive in this manner.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable.
~ Psalm 145:3
