The Jellyfish with a Broad Reach
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, meet a jellyfish that know how to sail into the wind.
Unlike humans and animals, the velella jellyfish is a biological oddity because it has an asymmetrical body. It has a triangular sail with an S-shaped base that’s set on top of its body at an angle. The sail doesn’t simply catch the wind and move velella along with it. The unique design enables velella to sail as much as 60 degrees off the direction of the wind. This is what sailors call a broad reach.
When scientists noticed that velella’s body was asymmetrical, they immediately looked for a purpose behind the design. Even though many scientists will not recognize the Creator, they understand enough to realize that nothing in the creation is without purpose or design. So while many deny the Creator, they still recognize the pattern of His handiwork!
