1 Why at a precise moment we cannot determine does a hormone leave an unborn baby’s brain to travel to the mother. It then notifies that the baby is ready to breathe on its own, the heart is strong and the intestines are prepared and ready to process food. The brain is ready to start leaning and that the ten trillion cells which make this little person are now ready to work together.
The unborn baby makes the decision not the mother, no matter how tired she is of pregnancy the decision is not hers to make. The baby does not take its first breath until it has cleared the birth canal, before this the baby would suffocate. Just before the mother and baby disconnect the baby takes a last minute blood transfusion from the umbilical cord and on time the placenta will detach and follow the baby out. Babies are born with a natural sucking reflex and a mother’s milk has exactly what is needed to feed the baby with all the required nutrients, minerals, vitamins and antibodies needed for survival. If any steps between conception and birth did not happen as divinely planned the human race would not exist. To believe it is a sequence of trial and error or a lucky accident of nature is incomprehensible.
2 A giraffe has a blood pressure of 280/180 and a heart rate of 170 beats per minute which is double that of a human.
However a sponge like organ is found at the base of the animals brain which absorbs the extra blood that flows forward when the animal bends to drink. When it has had enough to drink the giraffe raises its head, but the sponge like organ transfuses the brain to stop the animal from passing out. In this way it deals with dangers and can take off running. A baby giraffe can fall seven feet at birth onto its head, it walks 30 minutes after birth and can run with an hour up to 52mph.
3 A flea can jump into the air faster than the human eye can see and can jump for three days at hundreds of times an hour. Their bite injects saliva which contains a blood thinner and a blood vessel dilator.
This opens the blood vessels and keeps the blood from clotting leaving the flea to freely suck blood. Without this combination its meals would not be frequent.
4 The starry batfish is a new discover found at a depth of 1200 feet near the Hawaiian Islands. It looks like an orange Frisbee with two eyes in the front, a long tail and thorny exterior made of interlocking plates. It walks on four fins that look like legs or it swims. It can move itself with squirts from gill slits on both sides. There is no explanation for this.
In Genesis 1 we read the account of creation and all that was created from the sky to animals, from plants to the sea and then Gods special creation of man. Nothing was by chance, all were intricately designed and planned, nothing was left to chance. At the end of chapter 1 in verse 31 we read “And God saw everything that He had made, and behold it was very good ( suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely.”
In Psalms 139:13,14 we read “For you did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth. Wonderful are Your works and that my inner self knows right well.
My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors]”.
Science does not have all the answers and while they do not acknowledge the mysteries of Godly creation they cannot supply all the answers needed to dispute it.
We are not made by chance and there is nothing about us that was not determined or intricately and uniquely designed by God. Our finest detail e.g. colour of our hair, eyes, build, skin colour etc was determined from the beginning of time for His glory. We are His handiwork and we are the best He had in mind for a specific plan and purpose. It is up to us to discover what that plan and purpose is and to do the best because He has given us all we need to succeed!
