the sea horse

The sea horse declares the glories of God. This unique creation gallops slowly near the shore with its tail twisting forward gripping seaweed. The seahorse is an amazing creation that describes a lot about our amazing Creator

The sea horse is incredibly unique. Its protective bony armor cleverly protects it from imminent danger. Its armor is so strong that it is almost impossible to crush a dried dead sea horse in your hands. Its tough skeleton is not a yummy or crunchy for predators. 

The sea horse unlike all other fish in that its head is set at right angles to its body. It swims with its body held upright. It can bend its head down or up, but not from side to side. To most this would seem like a handicap, but the Creator in His amazing wisdom has designed the seahorse’s eyes to move independently, swiveling around in any direction to watch each side. 

The sea horse uses its fins to swim vertically, and rises or sinks by cleverly altering the volume of gas within its swim bladder [w/o the use of Beano!?]. If this bladder is damaged, and it loses even a tiny bit of gas, it sinks to the bottom, where it will lie helpless until death.

The most unique characteristic of the sea horse, compared to all other animals in God’s creation, is that the male gives births to its young. The male sea horse has a kangaroo like pouch built into its armor. The female lays the eggs directly into this pouch, where the male fertilizes them. She may lay as many as 600 eggs. Once impregnated the dad-to-be swims off as the baby incubator. One or two months later he gives birth to tiny replicas of their parents.

The sea horse is like the platypus. As far as evolution is concerned: it presents an enigma that baffles and frustrates all theories that seek to disprove a Creator. It is easy to see when one looks at the sea horse that there is a Divine Designer.

  1. Good post! Evolution often sounds good to people, but when you really get into the details, it falls flat on its face.


  2. You know that all the ‘unique’ traits of sea horses that you cite in your post are present in other fish, right? Or is it satire?

    The evolutionary history of sea horses is well documented. Here’s an example:

  3. Will,

    After skimming the pdf, it seems like there was a ton of assumptions and a lot of speculation. Also, while they described how evolution may have taken place through DNA, this is based on the assumption that evolution is true. It is not evidence for evolution, which I realize they weren’t going for. Furthemore, no description is given of how the features of the seahorse give it an evolutionary advantage or might have come about other than through random genetic mutations.

    Also, when you provide a scientific paper in response to a layman’s writings, it isn’t that helpful. You posted a paper that didn’t respond to the facts in the post, and you didn’t respond to them yourself. Maybe you can explain the evolution of the seahorse’s swim bladder. How did the intermediate species live with only a partially developed swim bladder?
