|Horned Marsupial Frog|
Greetings all my fine friends out there! How are you all? I pray well and safe. I have been busy wrapping up the sequence to my first novel. The only thing left is to send a potential publisher the synopsis and see what they think. Any prayers you can offer would be so appreciated, so I’ll say
thank you right now!

I just discovered that in our wonderful, amazing world, there is such a thing as marsupial frogs! Deep in the jungles of Central and South America there is group of frogs, Gastrotheca, that carry their fertilized eggs in pouches. The eggs develop directly into miniature adult frogs skipping altogether the free-swimming tadpole stage. Another frog group, Hemiphractus, has a similar developmental stage as Gastrotheca. Except the eggs are not in a pouch per say, but rather under a loose flap of skin on the back of the female.
Very interesting indeed!

What is sad though, is when you read articles on these amazing animals, in large, they are about where these creatures should fit in on the evolutionary tree chart. They go back and forth over and over again about minute details that would make one species “older” than another. As a matter of fact they have come up with a new term “re-evolve”. So what they are saying is that if these evolutionary believers can’t come up with something definite, they create a theory (such as re-evolving) to answerquestions and to keep the theory of evolution alive.
However the Bible has recorded our unaltered history. The original two kinds of each animal that God made during Creation Week housed an incredible amount of information in their DNA. The DNA for pouches and back-flaps for non free-swimming tadpole developmental stages would have been passed down generation to generation by these animals until they reached the highly tuned varieties we see today. The presence of these creatures has nothing to do with evolution (one species turning into another by mutations which is a loss or rearrangement of the DNA sequence), but rather an Intelligent, Thoughtful, Designer Who loves great variety!
Until next time, get out there and enjoy our beautiful planet!
