Have Tuxedo, Will Travel

From Issue: Discovery 6/1/2007

Evolutionists have trouble understanding why and how any birds “developed” the instinct to migrate. Penguins present a huge challenge to those who refuse to believe in God.

Penguin species are found on every continent in the Southern Hemisphere. Some species spend as much as 75 percent of their lives in the water. Penguins are the only birds that swim to migrate. When it gets cold, some penguins migrate to the west coast of South America, to places like Tetas Point in northern Chile, or to the east coast of South America, as far north as Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Penguins can zoom underwater at speeds of 25 miles per hour. They migrate up to 5,000 miles, swimming in the coldest water on Earth.

Each year, at exactly the right time, thousands of emperor penguins in Antarctica migrate to a specific spot where the ice is thick, so that when their chicks hatch, they won’t fall through melting ice. This spot is also protected from the harsh winds, which can reach 186 miles per hour and temperatures that can reach -140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Evolutionists say that the first penguins evolved about 30 or 40 million years ago. But how did the first penguins know how to migrate? Certainly no one explained the process to them. What made them migrate in precisely the right direction and at exactly the right time? Evolution cannot explain why penguins (or any other birds) migrate in order to survive. Penguin migration shows that God designed penguins for life in the sea and on land, and provided them with the instinct to migrate in exactly the right way to preserve their kind.
