Devious Fungus

Devious Fungus

Evolutionary biologists say that fungi are simple, primitive organisms. Is this true? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Biologists are now learning that nothing in God’s creation is simple or primitive. Parasites seem to display some of the most clever planning in all creation.

A parasitic fungus that infects a roadside weed called catchfly seems to do nothing harmful to the plant. After infection, a profusion of white blossoms will open – even a few weeks earlier than normal. Bees and butterflies will arrive to collect the grains from the flowers. However, the grains they are spreading aren’t pollen but fungus spores.

This is but one example showing that nothing from God’s hand is carelessly done. The lesson for us is that living things don’t fit into the evolutionary simple-to-complex scheme. God also wants us to know that He cares about everything He has made, no matter how lowly.
