Q: Why are the migration habits of salmon so amazing?

A: The migration of salmon is a fascinating phenomenon. Pacific salmon have a built-in guidance system.

Research indicates that salmon are able to use the earth’s magnetic field and the position of the sun, moon and stars. They also have the ability to detect the chemical composition of the stream from which they actually began their life. All this to enable salmon to return to their native stream to spawn!

How can evolutionary scientists be so blind? The salmon’s astounding ability to navigate great distances with perfect accuracy is impossible to explain as a result of purposeless and unguided evolution.

While we may be impressed by man’s achievements, such as building guided missiles, how much more should we worship the Creator God who made the salmon?

To read more about the salmon’s awe-inspiring, God-designed guidance system, check out our article Pacific salmon: The ocean’s high achievers.

Evolutionist quote of the week

“I can but think that the time will come when such suggestions as these, such obvious attempts to escape the force of demonstration, will be put upon the same footing as the supposition made by some writers, who are I believe not completely extinct at present, that fossils are mere simulacra, are not indications of the former existence of the animals to which they seem to belong; but that they are either sports of Nature, or special creations, intended—as I heard suggested the other day—to test our faith.”

– Thomas H. Huxley, Science And Hebrew Tradition Essays, 1897.
