Answer Diane Eager and John Mackay Some variations in dog size, head shape, coat colour are just normal ranges of variation that occurs in any living thing, including humans.

GIANT ANIMALS are dangerous by their size alone. Was giantism an effect of the curse?
The original question was: While studying animals of the past such as the 15 meter long (48’) gigantic serpent Titanoboa cerrejonensis, who could have swallowed a man whole, I’ve discovered that many animals were of gargantuan dimensions. I can’t believe such animals were part of God’s original very good creation. If God created animals so […]
SNAKES: If God removed snakes’ legs at the Fall, why are there fossil snakes with legs?

PESTS? How did creatures like slugs get to be pests?
Answer by Simon Terry Personally I think slugs are an awesome part of God’s creation, so when I refer to them as pests I am using the term as it is applied to any species that has a detrimental effect on our gardens, farms, etc. Yet by this very definition we credit the creature as […]
DEATH: Genesis doesn’t explicitly state there was no animal death before the Fall. Why do you insist on it?
This question arose in response to our answer to the question: ANIMAL DEATH: Dr Lane Craig says animals died before Adam’s sin. Is this correct? Read our original answer here. Answer by Diane Eager It is important to know what Scripture explicitly says, but that does not mean we cannot draw logical conclusions based on […]
PROSTATE GLAND? Why would God make a gland that causes trouble? Evolution is a better explanation.

PREHISTORY? How do I teach my children where prehistoric cavemen fit into the Bible?
