BIBLE VERSES

Genesis 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he seas: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:20-23  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Job 12:7-10  But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee; or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee; and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

Psalm 69:34  Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein.

Nehemiah 9:6  You, even You, are LORD alone; You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and you preserve them all; and the host of heaven worship you.

Ephesians 1:4-7  According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. (God chose us before the foundation of the world. Before He created the oceans and the land. Amazing.)

CORAL REEF ~ INFORMATION FOR KIDS

Coral Reef – fun facts for kids  (icr.org; pdf) Have you ever gone swimming near a coral reef? Coral looks like a kind of rock, but it’s actually made up of tube-like animals called polyps. Jesus created them to come in beautiful colors like red, green, orange, and purple. Check out these other cool coastal facts; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously; free printable

Coral – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) Scientists have discovered that coral has layers, and some scientists have measured these layers claiming that they show slow growth over long periods of time. However, it has been shown that coral can grow quickly. With this knowledge, even the “oldest” reefs would only be a few thousand years old. This is consistent with a young earth, created only about 6,000 years ago… Coral polyps are connected to one another in large colonies, sharing nutrients and even other organisms in a mutualistic relationship. These large colonies are called reefs; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Shimmer the Coral  (answersingenesis) Hey kids, I’m Shimmer, the staghorn coral. What’s a coral, you ask? A coral is a type of Cnidarian. A Cnidarian is a group of animals that have special stinging tentacles called nematocysts that we use to capture prey as it floats by us in the water. As corals, we live in colonies of individual polyps. People call us “stony” corals because we make our polyps out of calcium carbonate, which is very hard—and your bones have it too! Over time, as we continue to build polyps, we become the foundation for reefs; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Clownfish  (answersingenesis) There are about 300 species of clownfish or damselfish. They live in the western and central Pacific Ocean among the coral reefs, and are especially common in the Australian Great Barrier Reef. Clownfish are very unique because they are the only fish that can live among the deadly, stinging tentacles of the sea anemone; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Butterflyfish  (answersingenesis) Butterflyfish are named for their brightly-colored and patterned bodies, which can be shades of red, blue, white, black, orange, and yellow. Many species exhibit dark eyespots on their sides and dark bands across their eyes; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Parrotfish  (answersingenesis) The teeth of the parrotfish are uniquely designed to scrape algae from coral and rocks. Coloring ranges from reds to greens, blues and yellows, as well as grays, browns, and blacks; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Purple Firefish  (answersingenesis) The torpedo-like body of the purple firefish is colored light pink near its head and deepens into a deep red or orange at its tail. It is sometimes called a dartfish because of its quick swimming style; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Clown Triggerfish  (answersingenesis) The lower half of this fish’s body is black with large, white spots, and the upper half is mostly black with a patch outlined in yellow. The clown triggerfish’s lips are bright orange; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Lionfish  (answersingenesis) The lion fish is a member of the scorpion fish family and is often called turkey fish, zebra fish, dragon fish, butterfly cod, or fire fish. All of the above names refer to its colorful, bold, body stripes and its venomous fins; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Unicornfish  (answersingenesis) The mouth of this fish (like other surgeonfishes) is perfectly designed to carefully remove the algae from coral while leaving the coral intact; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Giant Clam  (answersingenesis) Some giant clams look iridescent because of their blue and purple spots, while others look gold or green. The giant clam is the heaviest and largest living bivalve mollusk. The giant clam cannot completely close its shell once fully grown; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Fish | Sea Animals | Sea Creatures | Aquatic Animals | Aquarium Guide  (answersingenesis) various articles for kids from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Coral on a Shoe  (creation.com) …observed coral atolls in the south seas which were more than 1,000 metres (3,000 feet) thick. He believed that this proved that millions of years must have elapsed, and therefore the Bible’s time-frame must be wrong. After all, he argued, coral growth is incredibly slow. He was mistaken, as this amazing photograph shows. This coral growing firmly attached to a modern shoe… assessed by a university professor who said that the shoe could not be any more than four years old; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously; share this amazing photograph with your child

How long does a coral reef take to grow?  (answersingenesis) …annual growth rates of 11–16 inches (280–414 mm). With the right amount of light and water temperature, coral can grow much faster than some have suggested. With these growth rates, even the largest coral reefs could have formed in the 4,300 years since the Flood; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Coral: animal, vegetable and mineral  (creation.com) The world’s coral reefs provide some of the most spectacular natural colour on the planet. Despite an appearance of simplicity, the tiny individuals that make up those reefs are some of the most complex in the living world… In the awesome phenomenon known as mass coral spawning, all the corals in one geographic region release their eggs/sperm on the same night, all synchronized; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

How old is Australia’s Great Barrier Reef?  (creation.com) How many of us think it takes tens, or even hundreds of thousands of years for large coral reefs, such as Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, to grow? This is largely because we have been subtly indoctrinated with the evolutionist’s view of earth history and its eons of time, and not because of any evidence shown to us. But how old is the Great Barrier Reef? What is the evidence? If today’s coral reefs grew on the present land surface only after Noah’s Flood, they would surely have to be less than 4,400 years old; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

How long does a coral reef take to grow?  (creation.com) Australia’s beautiful Great Barrier Reef is the world’s longest coral reef. It extends from near Papua New Guinea down Australia’s east coast for about 2,000 kilometres… Such reef growth rates have been reported as high as 414 millimetres per year… At such a rate, the entire thickness of the Eniwetok Atoll could have been formed in less than 3,500 years; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

How long does a coral reef take to grow?  (answersingenesis) information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Giant Coral Reefs  (answersingenesis) Coral reefs form when reef-building corals and other creatures pull calcium out of the water and build a hard skeleton. As these organisms grow and die, the skeleton provides a site for new individuals to settle on, increasing the size of the reef and providing plenty of food and shelter for many animals; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Massive Reefs  (answersingenesis) an underwater wonderland—a beautiful and colorful spectacle of living animals such as corals, sponges, fish, and other exotic sea creatures, where snorkelers and divers love to congregate. Unseen beneath the corals is a massive limestone framework, built up slowly, inch by inch, as organisms die and leave behind their hard skeletons. How was it possible for these coral reefs—sometimes thousands of feet thick—to grow in the short time since Noah’s Flood about 4,400 years ago?; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Fossil Coral Reefs  (icr.org) In certain regions, geologists find what appear to be fossilized coral reefs, either buried in deep underground strata or exposed on the earth’s surface. How could these now-dead reefs grow to maturity in the short time from creation to the Flood? And if the Flood happened only thousands of years ago, has there been enough time since then to account for today’s massive coral reefs?; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Sea Lilies and Starfish—splendours of the sea  (creation.com) Starfish are unusual in that they are able to regenerate body parts. If a limb is severed, it grows back. Amazingly, if enough of the central body is left attached to the limb, an entire new starfish can be formed; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Jellyfish  (creation.com) What has no heart, bones, eyes or brain, is made up of 95% water, and yet is still a remarkably efficient ocean predator?; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Clever Crustaceans  (creation.com) University of New Hampshire zoologist Win Watson attached an underwater video camera to a standard commercial lobster trap and lowered it to the seabed. It had been thought that the traps were pretty effective, with lobsters entering through a funnel-shaped opening, and, after dining on the bait placed inside, it was thought they would have great difficulty finding their way back out through the narrow end of the funnel… But when he and other researchers looked at the first time-lapse images from their trap-mounted video camera, they were totally stunned by what they saw…

Did they turn inside out?  (answersingenesis) Animals with backbones are called vertebrates; fish are vertebrates. Many invertebrates, such as lobsters and crabs, have their skeleton on the outside of their bodies, while fish have their skeleton on the inside… What the facts really suggest is that true fish have always been fish! God created some sea creatures with skeletons on the outside and others with skeletons on the inside—and some with no skeleton at all.

  • Seal / Sea Lion / Walrus

Spectacular Surprising Seals  (creation.com) Seals, sea lions and walruses are grouped together under the name ‘pinnipeds’ (from Latin: ‘wing-footed’ or ‘fin-footed’). Pinnipeds are divided into three families: the Phocidae, Otariidae and Odobenidae. The Phocidae are known in scientific circles as ‘true seals’. They are fantastic swimmers, using their hind flippers to propel themselves through the water while their small front flippers act as rudders or stabilizers. The Otariidae are known as ‘eared seals’ because, as the name suggests, they have small, external ears. They also have long front flippers, measuring up to one-third of their body length, which propel them when swimming, while their hind flippers serve mainly as a rudder for steering. These animals are commonly referred to as sea lions. All members of the Odobenidae family are walruses, and they combine features of both other families. Seals not only ‘bark’, but also roar, honk, chirp, bleat, grunt and cough; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Sea Lion  (answersingenesis) Sea lions use a system of echolocation to navigate while underwater and to find food. A mother will leave her newborn pup while she goes hunting. To relocate each other, they will “bark” until they find each other; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Walrus | Walrus  (answersingenesis) The walrus is known for its large size and pink–reddish brown coloring. It is also easily recognized by its large tusks. The walrus also has a thick layer of blubber under its skin that protects it from the freezing water. The walrus uses its whiskers to find its invertebrate food, sometimes diving down 300 ft (91 m) to retrieve its very favorite food, clams, from the ocean floor. Air sacs in the walrus’ neck allow it to sleep with its head held up in the water; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Elephant Seal  (answersingenesis) The elephant seal was named for its large snout that resembles an elephant’s trunk.  It has been reported that an elephant seal is capable of diving over 3,000 feet (914 m); information from scientists who take the Bible seriously
