Meet The Camel

I am sorry to be so negative, but I have always thought that believing lightning struck a pond of something non-organic and created life is ludicrous. This thought is closely followed by the idea that one day a bunch of these improbably created cells got together and said, “Let’s form a retina . . . or a rectum.”

There is a Creator, and the camel is an example of His work. This information was written by Bob Devine, and published by Moody Press.

The dromedary camel, the one-hump kind, lives in the hot deserts of the Middle East. The hump, weighing about eighty pounds, is filled with fat, the emergency food supply of the camel. When the hump gets smaller, it starts to tip to one side. But when the camel can eat again, the hump soon builds back to normal.

Camels have been known to drink twenty-seven gallons of water in ten minutes. The Creator made the camel in such a fantastic way that in a matter of minutes all the water it swallows travels to the cells of its body. The water it drinks first goes into its stomach. There the blood vessels absorb and carry it to every part of the camel’s body. Scientists have found that after a camel has drunk twenty gallons of water, its stomach is empty ten minutes later.

The camel is designed to function even when its body fluid levels are very low. Normally the blood of a camel contains 94 percent water, just like ours. But scientists have found that a camel’s blood can lose up to 40 percent of its water, and it still is healthy.

Doctor's say human blood has to stay very close to 94 percent water. If you lose 5 percent of it, you can't see anymore; 10 percent, you can't hear and you go insane; 12 percent, your blood is as thick as molasses and your heart can't pump the thick stuff. It stops, and you're dead. But that's not true with the camel. The camel’s blood is different. Its red cells are elongated. Ours are round. There is a Master Designer.

The camel has special protection that allows it to see and breathe during desert sandstorms. Its nose captures the moisture of its breath, and recycles it back into the camel’s system. The dromedary camel, while not very attractive, is a very technical, highly engineered animal, as we all are. Things like that don't just happen. They're planned on a drawing board by Someone very brilliant, a Master Designer, the Creator.

As one Brother has said, “You need help to believe that something like this happened by chance.” Praise the Lord for being the Master Designer. May He come soon and reclaim His Creation from the evil of Satan and those who follow him.
