ECHIDNA evolution or creation
The echidna is an egg-laying mammal, one of only two egg-laying mammals known as monotremes, with the other being the platypus. This rare characteristic that the echidna shares with only one other mammal is difficult for evolutionists to explain and is a testament to an Intelligent Designer with a grand design in mind. Echidnas are also known as spiny anteaters and live in Australia and New Guinea. The echidna resembles the anteater of South America, hedgehogs, and porcupines. Echidnas have no teeth and only eat invertebrates, such as termites, ants, and other invertebrates in the ground. Equipped with strong claws that can break open tree logs and capture insects, the echidna tongue can extend up to seven inches in order to capture these insects. Evolutionists claim that the echidna evolved some 20 to 50 million years ago but its unique features proclaim the skill of an Intelligent Designer and not gradual random chances over millions of years. Echidnas are one of two egg-laying mammals, but the two have strikingly different morphology: one looks like an anteater, the other is a duck-billed platypus with four webbed feet, a thick tail, and a hairy body with no feathers. The echidna has electro-sensors at the tip of its snout that enables sensing objects an although not as detailed as the platypus the fact that it has such a necessary system implies design in living things by a Designer that had them in mind and not random evolution. Another unusual feature of the echidna is its four headed male-reproductive organ. Evolutionists claim that the echidna evolved from a platypus-like ancestor but transitional fossils have been non-existent. Even with their faulty dating methods, evolutionists cannot find an echidna fossil old enough to represent a transitional fossil, while the platypus fossils date much older. Platypus fossils claimed to be 60 million to 100 million years ago look very similar to modern platypus fossils. Where is the evolution? The creation model explains that the platypus and the echidna were separate and unique animals that were created on Day 6 of Creation Week. While evolutionist explanations for the origin of the echidna are difficult, creationists proclaim the Grand Design of nature and living things that were given exactly what they needed by a Designer that cared for them.
