BIBLE VERSES

Exodus 20:11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

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

Psalm 95:5-6  The sea is His, and He made it; and His hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

Isaiah 40:12  Who else has held the oceans in His hand?

DOLPHIN / NARWHAL / ORCA (KILLER WHALE) ~ INFORMATION FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE

  • Dolphin

Bottlenose Dolphin – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) The name “bottlenose” comes from this dolphin’s elongated upper and lower jaws that form what is called the “rostrum”; It communicates through squeaks, whistles, and body movement; The dolphin locates its food by using a form of echolocation; The outer surface of the dolphin’s skin is replaced about every two to four hours; A dolphin can hold its breath up to 20 minutes; The up and down motion of the dolphin’s tail fluke helps bring its head up to the surface so it can breathe through the blowhole on top of its head; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously; share a snippet with your child

Dolphin – article for kids  (creation.com) Try to imagine you are diving in the deep ocean. As you go deeper, less sunlight reaches down to warm the water. You would get very, very cold, even on a hot, sunny day. When we go diving we can put on wetsuits to keep warm, or we can get out when we get too cold… unlike us, dolphins can’t leave the water or grab a warm wetsuit to swim in. God knew they would need to keep warm in the cool waters so He built something into their bodies to keep the warmth in. Dolphins have a layer of fat or blubber under their skin that does just that; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Bottlenose Dolphin – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) One of the most loved of the marine animals is the bottlenose dolphin because it is intelligent and social. Dolphins are mammals and must surface to breathe… Dolphins are curious and people-friendly, and seem to enjoy escorting ships at speed. There are many stories and rumors of dolphins helping stranded and drowning people; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Discovering the Dolphin’s Secret  (answersingenesis) Dolphins are very stream-lined and travel through the water at up to 40 kilometres (25 miles) an hour… examine a piece of dolphin skin under the microscope – and the dolphin’s secret was out… Tests with simulated models proved that this design reduced surface drag by as much as 60 per cent… Even some of the world’s most brilliant scientists could not invent anything as efficient, and when they discovered the dolphin’s secret, they tried to copy it. Such an ingenious design owes its origin to God, the Master Designer. The real patent belongs to Him; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Blubber Gloves  (answersingenesis) God designed a clever coat of insulation that makes life a breeze for animals that call the Arctic their home; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously; share a snippet with your child

Engineers look to Dolphins for improved Sonar  (answersingenesis) It’s another case of science turning to God’s design for inspiration… engineers may be taking a cue from dolphins in devising improved sonar systems. Dolphins navigate using sonar, sonar that “outperforms any man-made system”… as humans, we can be thankful for not only God’s incredible designs, which have inspired numerous engineering advances, but also for the logical minds God gave us that allow us to use science to investigate the world around us; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Bottlenose Dolphin  (creation wiki); Common Dolphin; Oceanic Dolphin; Amazon River Dolphin (pink dolphin); Porpoise; share cool facts about these wonderful creatures with your child from a Biblical perspective

  • Narwhal

The Enigmatic Narwhal  (creation.com) Narwhals are classified in the suborder Odontoceti, toothed whales, which include dolphins, porpoises, and killer whales… the long spiral tusk found in most males and in some females, is actually a tooth with a…  spiral pattern… grows up to three metres (10 ft) long… The tusk can detect changes in water temperature, pressure, and particle gradients (e.g. salinity)… The ‘sensational’ tooth of the amazing narwhal reminds us that changes have occurred since creation. In spite of these changes, we can still see the awesome design of our infinitely wise God in His creatures; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Narwhal – information for kids  (answersingenesis) Narwhals, the “unicorns of the sea,” are toothed whales found in Arctic waters. Their most recognizable feature is a long tusk. This “tusk” is actually a tooth that grows in a spiral pattern through a hole in their lip. It can grow over ten feet long… A narwhal’s tusk, which is made of ivory, has 10 million nerve endings inside and is the only straight tusk in the world; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Narwhal  (creation wiki) share cool facts about these wonderful creatures with your child from a Biblical perspective

  • Orca (Killer Whale)

Killer Whale – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) Did you know that orcas or killer whales are the largest member of the dolphin family? The killer whale is easily recognized by its black body, white lower jaw and belly, and white patch directly behind the eye; The killer whale is the fastest swimming mammal, attaining speeds up to 30 mph (48 km/h); information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Killer Whale  (answersingenesis) Whales are divided into two groups: toothed (like the killer whale and dolphins, etc.) and baleen (blue whale, sperm whale, humpback, etc.). Baleen is not teeth, but long hair-like strands that sieve small plankton and fish. The killer whale is also known as the orca; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously; share a snippet with your child

Orca / Killer Whale  (creationwiki) share cool facts about these wonderful creatures with your child from a Biblical perspective

  • Biblical KINDS

An explanation of Biblical KINDS  (answersingenesis) When dogs breed together, you get dogs; so there is a dog kind. It works the same with sea creatures… The wolphin is the result of mating a false killer whale (genus Pseudorca) and bottlenose dolphin (genus Tursiops)… Even though the whale and dolphin are considered separate genera, they may, in fact, belong to the same species... the same kind… created with genetic diversity. Through time the processes of natural selection, mutation, and other mechanisms have altered that original information (decreased or degenerated) to give us even more variation within a kind… just as the same cake recipe can be used to make many different cakes with various flavors and colors; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Zonkeys, Ligers, and Wolphins, Oh My!  (answersingenesis) A species is a man-made term used in the modern classification system… Instead, the Bible uses the term “kind”…  plants and animals were created to reproduce within the boundaries of their kind… So, a good rule of thumb is that if two things can breed together, then they are of the same created kind. It is a bit more complicated than this, but for the time being, this is a quick measure of a “kind”… so what is a wolphin?

Ligers and Wholphins? What next?  (creation.com) The Bible tells us in Genesis chapter 1 that God created plants to produce seed ‘after their kind’… God also created the animals to reproduce ‘after their kind’… And we take it for granted. When we plant a tomato seed, we don’t expect to see a geranium pop up out of the ground. Nor do we expect that our dog will give birth to kittens… Our everyday experience confirms the truth of the Bible that things produce offspring true to their kind… Kekaimalu the wholphin: In 1985, Hawaii’s Sea Life Park reported the birth of a baby from the mating of a male false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens) and a female bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)… suggests that the 12 living genera might have all descended from the original created kind; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously
