It always fascinates me, the ways people go to justify evolution, when really all they are pointing to is the wonders of God’s creation.
Almost all textbooks on evolution include the peppered moth, as the classic example of evolution by natural selection. That probably doesn’t mean much to a lot of people, but lets explain how some of their justification comes about.
There are two types of peppered moths, a light-colored speckled variety and the dark variety. Most peppered moths in England were the light variety, which were camouflaged as they rested on the trunks of trees.
The black variety stood out against the light bark and were easily seen and eaten by the birds. But as the industrial evolution created pollution, that covered the trunks with soot, the dark variety was camouflaged better, so the birds ate more of the light ones.
Here it becomes humorous, because this is where the evolutionist use the peppered moth as their best example , enabling them to watch evolution in action.
So watch closely, before the moths environment changed, some were mostly white, and mostly black. After their environment changed, some were mostly white, some were mostly black. No new colors or varieties came into being, yet we have supposedly just witnessed evolution.
I know for myself, I rather believe the Psalmist. Psalm 104 verse 24:
“How countless are Your works, Lord! In wisdom You made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures.”
Something to make us all think.
