Is It Plant or Animal? (Part 1 of 2)

Is It Plant or Animal? (Part 1 of 2)


Take a look at this unusual animal. Or is it a plant? Or is it both? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.


As we learn more about God’s creation, we find that a number of things we learned in school aren’t really true, and never were. We learned in school that plants are plants and animals are animals, and there are always distinct differences between them. We also learned that complex things like eyes are found only in higher, more evolved creatures.


Dinoflagellates are considered by biologists to be among the simplest forms of cellular life. Yet these amazing creatures are far from simple. Both zoologists, who study animals, and botanists, who study plants, claim that dinoflagellates belong to their area of study. In other words, scientists can’t even figure out whether they are plants or animals.


That’s all the time we have today, but we’ll take another look at dinoflagellates next time.


For Creation Moments Minute, I’m Darren Marlar.
