Grand Teton, Foxes, and Mountains

 Not too long ago, we discussed some interesting things about Yellowstone National Park. Now we can go just a short distance south and take in Grand Teton National Park. Folks in the formerly United States may want to experience nature there in autumn.

Many things are happening, including migrations of birds and animals. The wildlife is diverse, and foxes are prominent there. Have you ever seen those pictures that say, "Firefox has crashed", and it shows a fox half buried head first in the snow?

Grand Teton National Park has several features that testify the Genesis Flood and recent creation. Evidence of intelligent design is also observed.

Aside from being funny to us, foxes have a good reason for those actions. They are hunting some critters by their hearing  — plus magnetism. Believers in universal common descent wave off these fox features with a hearty "It evolved", which fails as an explanation. For that matter, substitute "It happened by magic", and see how well that works because they appeal to a secular form of miracles quite frequently.

Also, foxes were considered untamable because with all the kindness given, they remained suspicious and unsociable. Later, with some selective breeding of the best-natured parents, foxes that act just like dogs were born. It took far fewer generations than evolutionists would have thought possible.

The Tetons are considered the youngest part of the Rocky Mountains (and way down south, the Andes are a kind of continuation of the Rockies — or is that the other way around?), and the Tetons are troubling to believers on uniformitarianism. Notice that "the present is the key to the past" doesn't exactly work in explaining the youthful features of the Tetons, and there are no mountain-making geological activities observed today. Were these the product of the Genesis Flood? No. Yes. Indirectly.

Just south of Yellowstone National Park lies one of the most picturesque mountain ranges in the western United States—the Teton Range, established as a national park in 1929. When viewed from the east, the Tetons seem to shoot straight out of the plains. Their stark, jagged peaks rise to heights above 13,000 feet, while the valley floor with its sage and wildlife lies at only 6,000 to 7,000 feet.

Grand Teton National Park’s wide variety of animals, including foxes, showcase out-of-this-world innate engineering. Plus, the park’s rocks carry clues to a catastrophic start and an icy finish. Let’s see where those clues lead.
