Mr. Nature: Spring Peepers, the Next Generation

You’ve heard the peepers calling–some of you, in your own back yards–and they’ve laid their eggs. Time for them to hatch!

Mr. Nature here–and watch God’s stuff work. Time-lapse photography allows us to watch the embryos developing in the eggs until they’re ready to hatch out and swim away. In another month or two they’ll be frogs.

If you watch closely you can just make out some exceedingly tiny creatures swimming here and there. A newly-hatched spring peeper tadpole is about the size of the fingernail on a human baby’s finger; so these other critters, whatever they are, are just barely visible without a microscope.

Life! God planted it all over the planet.

P.S.–Help me maintain this blog today without writing about the cotton-pickin’ coronavirus! And no, I absolutely do not no way care what Alyssa Milano has to say about it. I don’t care that she was in a movie once. I won a spelling bee in junior high school. So what? Let’s stay real.

  1. How can anyone believe that this evolved by chance? That is amazing to watch and, quite literally, a miracle.

    How can the most wonderful animals, such as our common house-pets be so abundant? Just stop and look at a dog, cat or pet bird and tell me how such a creature could evolve. Then, add in the fact that these creatures are so docile and suitable for living in a human home. How can that just happen? It can’t. It takes information to make a living thing and information does not happen by accident. It can only happen because of deliberate input, which can only come from a Source of greater intelligence than we possess.

    A frog is a common creature, but I have no idea of how to make one, and neither does anyone else. Our greatest scientists can give insights into the way that genetics works, but cannot initiate the creation of any new life.

    1. And yet they look down their (miraculously complex) noses at Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of dry bones. I guess the rain is their god. Now we just have to figure out where the rain came from — and where the rocks came from.

  2. I have read where birds were so abundant in America at one time that the skies over Kentucky would be dark for three days because of birds flying South. And how many cells make up our physical body? and each one is more complex than New York City. All I can say to all this is “Praise God!!!
