Those of you who still cling to the godless theory of evolution will undoubtedly change their minds after reading this stunning article from the creation scientists at Answers in Genesis (AIG) — the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia. AIG’s article is titled Giraffes: Towering Testimonies to God’s Design, written by Karin Viet.
The last time we wrote about her brilliant creation research was Answers in Genesis: Behold the Platypus. Here are some excerpts from her new essay, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Towering tall over the African savanna, the giraffe looks as if it belongs in the circus. It strolls on stilt-like legs, and its neck parades high in the sky. But the giraffe is no comic freak of nature. It displays divine design.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Divine design! Then she says:
Since the giraffe gives birth standing up, the newborn calf falls more than five feet to the ground. Within 15 minutes after the calf is born, it stands up on those gangly legs.
Amazing! Karin tells us more wonders about the giraffe. We’ll skip most of it until we come to this:
Jean Lamarck and later Charles Darwin proposed that a giraffe evolved a long neck by inheriting traits acquired through use and disuse. Darwin thought a drought could have led to early giraffes needing to stretch their necks to reach leaves in tree tops. But today, through a greater understanding of heredity, we know that a giraffe with a stretched neck from reaching wouldn’t pass on that characteristic to its offspring.
A modified idea suggests that the long neck evolved through mutation and natural selection, which favored those giraffes that could reach higher branches. Such an idea raises the question: What did the younger giraffes eat, and why do giraffes even today often eat at shoulder height and below? More importantly, the proposed progression from short to long-necked giraffes is absent from the fossil record.
Verily, the long neck of the giraffe is an abominable mystery! Well, Wikipedia’s article on the Giraffe mentions some ancestral predecessors, but what do they know compared to Hambo and his holy team? Karin tells us:
Evolutionists also encounter a design dilemma for the evolution of a long neck. That six-foot neck requires an intricate blood vessel system to maintain proper blood pressure between the heart and brain. A giraffe bending its neck down to drink water is a marvelous display of design. The 25-pound heart that pumps blood way up that neck against gravity suddenly pumps down with gravity, which should cause the delicate brain to explode. But the blood vessels are uniquely designed with reinforced walls, bypass valves, a cushioning web, and sensor signals to moderate the pressure when the giraffe bends its neck down. The reverse of this intricate system happens when the giraffe raises its head so that the pressure is regained and the giraffe doesn’t pass out.
Wowie — the neck is designed so the giraffe’s head doesn’t explode! Karin continues:
Ken Ham penned the problem for evolutionists:
[Karin quotes ol’ Hambo:] How many giraffes blew their brains to pieces when bending down — how many passed out as they lifted their heads, becoming food for the lions — until the special features somehow evolved? It’s obvious that the very first giraffes had to have these special features right from the beginning. If not, they wouldn’t have survived to pass them on to their offspring!
Yes, it’s obvious! Hambo is so wise! And now we come to the end:
The next time you visit the zoo, stop by the giraffe exhibit. With people gawking around you, discuss how the giraffe displays God’s handiwork. Look up that long neck, but don’t stop there. Draw your gaze up to the Creator and praise Him.
So there you are, dear reader. The next time some godless evolutionists tries to convince you of his Satanic theory, tell him about the giraffe!
