Today's Creation Moment:  The Woodpecker's Amazing Tongue

Deuteronomy 4:28       
"And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell."
The beautiful creation in which we live is not only filled with testimonies to the wisdom of God, it is also filled with special designs that deny the   possibility of mindless evolution.
Consider the woodpecker. Its tongue can stretch from three to five times its normal length in order to fish bugs out of trees. Of all places, that tongue is rooted in its right nostril. Going backwards, the tongue splits The Woodpeckers Amazing Tongueinto two parts, wraps around its head between its skull and the skin, passes on either side of the neck bones and then comes up through its lower jaw and exits through the beak. This gives the woodpecker a long enough tongue that will stretch far enough to do an effective job of pest control on bug-infested trees! Now, how could that happen by blind evolutionary chance?
Even evolutionists admit that it’s silly to suggest that gradually over thousands of years the woodpecker’s tongue got longer and began to grow under his skin. As one evolutionary scientist said about the woodpecker’s tongue, “There are certain anatomical features which just cannot be explained by gradual mutations over millions of years. Just between you and me, I have to get God into the act, too, sometimes.”
Why wait to call on God as a last resort? Why not begin with our wonderful Creator!
