Q: When a giraffe lowers its head toward the ground, wouldn’t you expect the blood pressure to increase so much that its brain would explode?

A: It’s true that the giraffe’s blood pressure rises so much that it might cause its brain to explode. But, this doesn’t happen because the giraffe has a series of incredible features. This includes reinforced artery walls, bypass valves, as well as pressure-sensing signals that all work together to maintain the proper blood pressure.

Quotable quote:

“The interpretation of evolution is in a state of upheaval: the rapid advancement of Molecular Biology has led into question many of the tenets of Darwinism and neo-Darwinism which, although valuable approaches at the time they were formulated, never fulfilled the criteria demanded by real scientific theories … In the author’s opinion, no real theory of evolution can be formulated at present.”

– From the publisher’s advertising of an evolutionary book, Evolution Without Selection, by A. Lima-de Faria, Elsevier Science Publishing Co. Inc., New York, 1988.

But then comes the real trick. As the giraffe raises its head, the same systems used to reduce the pressure when the head is lowered, also act to increase the pressure as the head is raised (so the giraffe doesn’t pass out).

The problem for evolutionists is this. 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! Of course, this is not at all surprising to those who believe in a Creator.

 PrayerNet        

Please pray over the following request during the next few days …

  • Pray for Carl Kerby and the Ministry Relations team as they develop a new prayer program, which is planned to be introduced in early 2005. Among other things we never want to lose our dependency upon the Lord nor see any degree of success as the product of our own doing. The goal is to see a minimum of 1000 people willing to pray daily and fast once a month for this ministry to the end that hearts are changed and the world is impacted for the gospel.
