Coral Confounding Evolutionists

When people discuss coral, they are usually talking about the hard accumulations of calcium carbonate, since the animal itself is small and rather unattractive. Those deposits of coral in reefs and atolls are mighty bad news for ships and divers as well. Coral are evidence against evolution and in favor of special creation.

Coral is not just a hard shell, but a complex animal that defies evolution and affirms creation.

Corals have many characteristics that cannot be explained by universal common ancestor evolution. Although they are animals, they also process nutrition through photosynthesis. Although they are hunters and snag vittles with their tentacles, they need more, so they have a symbiotic relationship with algae inside their cells and receive nutrition while giving algae a nice homestead. When stressed, they commence to doing something called bleaching, where they expel the algae and corals themselves turn white.

Some corals diversify themselves. As they grow, so do their food needs. In some cases you can be seeing one animal with many mouths. This is another evolution-defying evidence that the Master Engineer front-loaded them with this ability, along with having an extremely complex genome.

Evolutionists and deep time proponents claim that coral reefs are evidence of an old earth, but that is the opposite of the truth. Those things can only be built under certain conditions. They are not deep, just wide. Secular scientists admit that, even in their time frame, coral colonies cannot be more than a few thousand years old. Indeed, coral reefs are thriving communities for many denizens of the deep.
God designed corals to be both hunters and farmers, and they do both very well. They don’t have eyes, but they can detect light, and react to passing shadows by retracting into their homes. Corals are active predators, snagging small floating food particles with their tentacles. There is not much food in the clear tropical waters, but they are very good at grabbing what is there. That food (small crustaceans and bits of organic debris) is protein-rich but has little in the way of carbohydrates (sugars).
