God's Creations Under the Sea

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own little existence that we forget to look around at the wonders of this earth that God has made for us. He is truly an amazing and awesome God, and His creations are something to behold.

I always have the same thought process when seeing the wonders God has made. What creativity! We swam with the manatees in Florida once. It was cold, but fun.

That must have been an unbelieveable experience, Neil. What an exciting thing to be able to do!

Have you seen the Creation Museum just south of Cincinnati, sponsored by the Answers in Genesis Ministry? It is amazing! I highly recommend it. It is just off Interstate 75 in Petersburg, KY.

I haven't been up that way in years, but if I ever am, I intend to visit the museum. I've heard it's extraordinary.

Sounds like you and most of your readers don't believe in Darwin theory? I understand that the video you posted is amazing. However, science can explain things, right? If science hasn't, it doesn't mean that they will never find answers. Sometimes, it takes time. It was only in this century we managed to fly to space and take pictures of earth to prove once for all that earth is not flat.

Hi V,

Haven't heard from you in a while. Hope you've been ok.

If you mean that I don't believe in evolution, you are correct.

I agree, science explains many things,and is a fascinating subject. I was an anthropology/archeology student in college and participated in several "digs". Science has given us some marvelous inventions and helped cure some horrible diseases. However, science has not always been right. As new discoveries are made, science has to adjust its claims sometimes.

As new discoveries are made, science has had to adjust some of its claims.

An example would be spontaneous generation.

Ms.Green,
That's precisely my point. Science is open to suggestions (based on the scientific approach) and can make corrections. Not so sure about the religion since 'questioning' is considered 'unfaithful'. Please don't take this as an offense on religion - But, this is my general observation in all religions!

I think it is a mistake for Christians to be afraid of questions. We have nothing to hide or be ashamed of in our faith, and should not run when confronted with tough questions about our beliefs. I don't take what you said as an offense at all.
We Christians have an obligation to study and grow spiritually in all areas of our faith, and should be ready to give an answer when asked.

It's unfortunate that many Christians do just that. In fact, what is even more unfortunate is the number of Christians I've met that have never even read their entire Bible - and if they have, they only did it once. It's a handbook that should be read and studied daily.

I can tell you that in my journey of growth, I have had numerous times when I myself had tough questions that I needed answers for - and I went to those I respect and know to be greater in knowledge of Scripture than I. I've never been reprimanded by any of these teachers/scholars for coming to them with tough questions, but instead, I've been welcomed and answers have been found both individually and together with them.
