A Confused Flower?

A Confused Flower

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, a flower that is all mixed up!

We regularly look at unusual plants and animals that challenge evolutionary theory – like a small flower in Mexico. Flowers, you see, have a pistil or female flower-part made up of a stigma, style and ovary, where the seeds develop. This pistil is surrounded by many male pollen‑producing stamens.

A Confused FlowerBut in 1990, a small flower was identified with only one stamen and was surrounded by about 50 pistils. Botanists admit they are at a complete loss to explain the flower in evolutionary terms because it is so different than any other.

However, we don’t have any problems explaining the flower because we know from the Bible that there is no limit to God’s imagination and power. He may have created so many unusual creatures to show modern humans that life has not evolved.
