armadillo evolution or creation?
Armadillos are placental mammals found in the Americas and are most closely classified by mainstream scientists with anteaters and sloths. The name armadillo comes from Spanish words meaning "little armored one." The most distinctive feature of the armadillo is its outer bodily shell that resembles body armour. Despite the fact that armadillos have short legs, the armadillo can run fast. The size of the armadillo can range from 30 inches long including its tail on average, however the giant armadillo species can be twice as long. Some armadillo species are only six inches long. Therefore, armadillos can range from six inches to sixty inches long. Armadillos have a strong sense of smell but poor eyesight. So how does the evolutionist explain the origin of the unique body armor covering on the armadillo? This seems like another unique feature that was part of an Intelligent Design by a God that had His Creation in mind. Creationists explain that the armadillo was uniquely designed and created to feature this special body armour for protection of its body. Without the body armour, the armadillo does resemble the anteater or aardvark, but the origin of this body armour is unique and difficult to explain, other than being part of a unique creation by an Intelligent Designer. One is perplexed to find another mammal or even another animal that has a similar body covering as the armadillo. Why does only the armadillo have this covering? If the armadillo "evolved" this feature, why didn't other animal species evolve this covering? Why didn't the anteater "evolve" this covering? Therefore, we can see that bodily features of animal species are uniquely designed and not the product of millions of years of evolution. What force could cause such evolution? Only an Intelligent Designer could design and create such a body covering. Random chance does not produce complex intelligent design. God does not need millions of years to design living things. While evolutionists claim random evolutionary processes, they cannot explain the force causing the process. Some Christians and people of faith erroneously claim that God directed the evolution process. However, this idea does not make sense. Random chance evolution is not design and design does not take millions of years. The only reasonable explanation is that God designed and created just like He said in Six Days and just like we observe in nature.
