The Animal that Confused Scientists (Part 2 of 2)
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we will see what the colugo tells us about evolutionists and the Creator.
As we saw last time, the colugo is a mammal that glides, but it isn’t a bat. Based on this, scientists thought it might be a lemur with wings, so they classified the colugo as a primate. The strictly vegetarian colugo is not a lemur, however. So scientists decided to give the colugo its own classification – Dermoptera, meaning “skin wing.”
Scientists classify animals according to an imagined evolutionary history – the most popular school of thought today. This doesn’t prove evolution; it is simply arranging similar things together, just as kindergarten children do as they learn about different objects. But the colugo is such a testimony to God’s imaginative creativity that scientists have not been able to find anything that even remotely resembles this strange and wonderful creature.
