The Brilliance of Butterfly Wings

                               Today's Creation Moment: The Brilliance of Butterfly Wings

1 John 4:6  "We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error." 

What do a butterfly's shimmering wings, a fish's opalescent scales, and a peacock's brilliant feathers have in common? None of the colors come from pigments. As an article at the Gizmodo website rightly points out, "All of their beautifully iridescent colors are produced by the physical interaction of light with sophisticated nanoscale architecture that we are only just beginning to understand."
Morpho butterflyThat is a true statement, a scientific statement describing why such striking colors come from wings that do not use pigments. Unfortunately, the writer quickly turns from science to science fiction when she states that the first color-building life forms probably date back to the Cambrian explosion over 500 million years ago – a time that, quote, "was a period of rapid evolutionary advancement, during which eyes evolved from simple light sensors to neurologically sophisticated organs that could detect color, shade and contrast."
Where is the evidence for such a statement? And why can't science writers stick to science? Once again, we see how science writers – and the publications they work for – seamlessly blend science and science fiction into the same sentence. Evolutionists' brains are wired this way because of their commitment to the philosophy of evolution. So, too, should Christians be so committed to the authority of the Word of God that we can't help but view the vibrant colors of butterfly wings as painted there by our magnificent Creator!
Truly, the brilliance of butterfly wings depends entirely on the brilliance of the God who created them!


  1. Ashley~ praise the Lord for your willingness to say what is the Truth.
    I so enjoyed reading this post and I must take the time to read your other creation posts as you are doing a great job.
    Look at the beauty in that awesome butterfly!
    I found a gorgeous dragonflie on the road near our home that was dead, yet seemed to be unharmed, and I hope to post on it as the photos my husband took close up are amazing.
    God's creation is amazing, if only people would see the Truth.

    Glory to God!
    Good bless you~ Debbie
