Nature’s Shark Repellant (Part 2 of 2)
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, discover why sharks won’t eat the Moses sole.
When scientists placed a Moses sole and sharks in the same laboratory tank, the sharks grabbed the sole, but just as quickly let it go. More study showed that the sole releases a milky, detergent‑like substance from the pores in its skin. As soon as the shark got a little detergent in its mouth, it wanted nothing more to do with the sole.
While the sole’s detergent is poisonous, researchers found that it’s the detergent and not the poison that drives sharks away. Since then they have found that a commercially available detergent works even better as shark repellant.
Just as the shark cannot be tamed, neither can our sinful deeds. This is why God encourages us to stay away from opportunities to sin. He doesn’t want us to suffer the necessary consequences of sin.
For the Creation Moments Minute, I’m Darren Marlar.
