Three Well-Adapted Desert Animals

One trick of minerals-to-man evolutionists is to claim that natural selection is evolution, and since most creationists believe in natural selection, we must also believe that Papa Darwin was right. Not hardly! Natural selection was actually the work of a creationist.

Related to that is the charge that we believe in fixity of species. Yes, some folks did believe that God created everything as we see it, but such a concept was abandoned by most creationists long ago. We believe in the original genetically-rich created kinds.

The original created kinds contained genetic diversity. This is expressed through several ways. Thee animals, sand cat, fennec fox, and mulgara reveal how they were equipped for heat.

Not only do we accept the observed fact of natural selection (though not Darwin's creative force concept), we also believe in variation and speciation. The three animals here certainly couldn't survive in the Arctic, nor could their counterparts last in the desert. A combination of front-loaded genetic information, gene expression, plus natural selection made it possible for them to thrive.

Interestingly, humans in hot areas take a siesta, an afternoon nap during the warmest part of the day. It was more popular before air conditioning, of course. People worked, slept a while during hot times, then resumed working later on. (Also, it has been shown that naps are good for people, adults as well as young'uns.) These animals hide from the heat and do their critter stuff at night.

Evolutionists have no plausible mechanism for adaptation other than evosplaining it away. In reality, such equipping is in keeping with the planning work of the Master Engineer.

Previously well-watered regions of the Earth became dry. Several parts of the world became deserts—such as the Sahara, which still shows evidence of its previous lush climate.

To survive there, animal populations would have needed to adapt to these extremely hot and dry environments, and some clearly have. God did not create each of these well-adapted species separately. Many can still hybridize with similar species that are not desert-adapted, showing they are descended from the same Genesis kind.

That does not mean that the animals on the Ark had to display features ready to allow them to live in desert areas. Rather, creatures in general were created with lots of genetic variation, and for some kinds this would have included information for features that would be advantageous in very dry conditions. Natural selection in a desert environment would then eliminate creatures lacking this information, or at least its full expression, and thus increase the frequency of this information in the remaining population.
