Home Again After 2,000 Mile Trip
We arrived home yesterday and are working on getting back in the routine of being home. The suitcases are unpacked and put away. We enjoyed sleeping in our own bed last night. If you have traveled, even overnight, you know the feeling of a night’s rest in your own bed.
We offered some of the migrating birds a ride south, but they declined our offer. [NOT!] Actually, we didn’t see sunshine for six days while we were north. Therefore, we wouldn’t have seen the birds anyway to offer them any assistance in their journey south.
“Even the stork in the sky Knows her seasons; And the turtledove and the swift and the thrush Observe the time of their migration; But My people do not know The ordinance of the LORD.” (Jeremiah 8:7 NASB)
We have a line of power poles on a road that goes to Bartow, Florida that is lined with platforms for bird nest. The Osprey come back every winter and rebuild their nest. I wonder if they feel like we did when we got to sleep in our own bed?
Because of the rain, overcast skies, and the approaching Hurricane Florence, we made the decision to come home several days early. We skipped the visit to the Cincinnati Zoo unfortunately. No bird photos to share from this trip.
We did get to go through the Creation Museum in Kentucky though. It has changed since we were there 8 or 9 years ago. Improved quite a bit, but they removed the bird [Finch] exhibits. I only found one fossil exhibit of a bird.
Because of a storm outside with lots of lightning, I think I will end this for now and post again tomorrow, Lord willing.
that’s not a bird fossil- that’s an Archeopteryx.
It’s a transitional fossil that demonstrates evolution of bird features. Notice how it has a skull and tail like a dinosaur, but wings and feathers like a bird. It’s discovery, not long after Darwin published his “On the origin of species”, amply shows the evolutionary model works.
Modern evolutionary biologists no longer think it is a direct ancestor of modern birds, but represent a sister clade that evolved along side them.
“The fossilized bird known as Archaeopteryx has had quite a history of identity crises. Researchers once classified it as a “missing link” between dinosaurs and birds. It was considered to be an ancient bird, then changed to a dinosaur, and now it’s supposed to be a bird again. So, what is it?” Archaeopteryx is a Bird… Again, by Brian Thomas
I do not believe in evolution. God created the dinosaurs and the birds during the six days of creation.
The “sister clade that evolved along side them.” Sooner or later they will realize Creation is true and they were created at the same time.
