Creation & Apologetics

Did You Know: Sheep vs. monkeys

Sheep were “never considered particularly intelligent” according to researchers and the general population.  In fact, they can be quite “silly” at times when they are in a herd.

But now researchers are surprised to find their assumptions are wrong. Sheep have really good memories and can remember their friends for two years! They can even make ‘executive decisions’ it is said. Scientists at Cambridge University even say sheep recognize faces off of photographs!

In fact, here’s the most amazing thing: mokeys fail psychological tests that sheep can easily pass! Isn’t this a wonderful example that God’s creation defies the false idea of evolutionism? Who can say that monkeys are intelligent as humans?!? The sheep are even more intelligent!

And here’s a beautiful connection too- the Lamb symbolizes Christ. The scientific discoveries about the nature around us, animals and natural processes always, always, always prove that there is a marvelous Creator behind it all and the universe and all living things didn’t happen by chance.

We as believers, can praise God that we know how the world began, that we aren’t the products of some haphazard natural process that arranged molecules by chance! Everything was designed with a purpose and a plan!

And not by coincidence, here is what I read today in the book of Isaiah in confirmation of the greatness of our God:

“To whom will you compare me?
Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.”Isaiah 40: 25,26
