Unnatural Selection

On today’s Creation Moments Minute – the famous photo in most school textbooks of peppered moths on tree trunks is a fake!

The two varieties of peppered moth – black and white – are said to rest on tree trunks. As the trunks turned black from soot, the white variety was more easily seen and picked off by birds, leaving the black variety to multiply. Students are told this is natural selection.

But nocturnal moths do NOT rest on tree trunks during the day. They stay hidden under the branches higher in the tree. In the famous photograph showing a pair of moths resting on a tree, the moths were actually GLUED to the tree trunks to provide the picture!

Let’s not give away the treasures of the truth of God’s inerrant Word for the false treasure of earthly theories which deny our Creator.

For Creation Moments Minute, I’m Darren Marlar.
