Ten-Hearted Fertilizer Factory
What is one of the most under-appreciated little creatures on Earth? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Most people don’t appreciate the lowly earthworm because it’s not very pretty. Biology textbooks mistakenly say that earthworms were among the first simple land creatures to evolve. But earthworms really aren’t simple at all. They have a well-developed nervous system, a brain and ten hearts!
Earthworms tunnel through the soil by literally eating the soil itself, turning it into an excellent natural fertilizer. In one test, soil scientists compared earthworms and the best fertilizers you can buy. The ground the earthworms fertilized had five times more nitrogen, twice as much calcium and seven times more phosphorus than the best that modern science could produce.
So, while earthworms aren’t pretty, our Creator has provided them to enrich the soil and help to feed us all.
