On today’s Creation Moments Minute, meet creatures that stay awake, even while sleeping!
How do you get a good night’s sleep when you must be alert to danger? Humans designate people to stay awake and watch for danger.
Since birds are much more vulnerable to danger, God gave many birds the ability to put half of their brain to sleep while the other half stays awake and alert. The eye that serves the sleeping half even closes; the eye that serves the waking half of the brain stays open, searching for danger. Whales, seals and dolphins are among the non birds that can half brain sleep as well.
Scripture tells us that God declared His creation “very good”. His ingenious design, which would allow birds to protect themselves even when sin and death entered the creation, is part of the goodness of God’s creation.
