Black or White?

Black or White?

Are zebras white with black stripes or are they black with white stripes? This is the Creation Moments Minute.

If you think that zebras are white and have black stripes, you’re wrong, according to embryologists. The zebra’s background color is black, and their stripes and bellies are white additions.

Here’s another question. Why do zebras have stripes at all? Scientists now tell us that a zebra’s stripes may make them less appetizing to large biting flies that often carry fatal diseases. Of course, evolutionists believe this is a result of evolution, natural selection and long spans of time.

But creationists see the zebra’s stripes as a magnificent design from the God who created them. Since the Bible has never been proved wrong about anything, we can know for certain that zebras were painted, as it were, by an Artist who cares for all His creatures – especially us!
