Creation Devotional July 7 - Biology

Daily Devotional – July 7



Students are taught about light and dark-colored peppered moths in almost all biology textbooks. Here’s the story: prior to the Industrial Revolution, light-colored peppered moths were prevalent in England. During the Industrial Revolution, soot covered the trees, and the dark-colored peppered moths were better camouflaged. Therefore, they had an advantage and survived better than the light-colored moths. This is often called an example of “evolution in action.”


Today, England’s trees are not soot covered, and light-colored moths are as prevalent as before the Industrial Revolution. This shift in colors is not evolution in action; remember, both varieties of moths were present from the start. As the environment changed, the dark-colored moths had greater opportunity to pass on their genes for darkness than the light-colored ones. With the environment changing again, we now see the lighter ones flourishing. This is natural selection in action, not evolution. Evolution needs proof that one creature changes into another completely different kind of creature. No such proof has ever been seen.


Furthermore, these light and dark-colored peppered moths did NOT spend time on exposed tree trunks and rocks as the famous textbook pictures show. Those promoting this idea in textbooks have now admitted that they glued the moths on the tree trunks; the photographs were fakes. In reality, peppered moths are nocturnal and rest in tree tops during the day. Don’t believe everything you read in your textbooks! But do believe everything in the Bible. God, not evolution, created peppered moths from the beginning.


In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

~ Genesis 1:1
