THE SOUTH AFRICAN NATIONAL MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

Recently I decided to visit the National Museum of Natural History in Pretoria, South Africa, and I must say it was quite an interesting visit.

The museum has archives of natural history, explaining how creation occurred according to scientific findings, and what existed on earth billions of years ago.

One thing that I took away from the visit was that creation seemed planned; nothing about it was random and that the earth was meticulously and specifically designed to support life. Even if the big bang occurred, some force had to be controlling it because the creation events seem too logical for them to be random and just happen out of nowhere and from nothing.

I walked out believing that God did indeed create the world, and that the one day that is described in the book of Genesis in the Bible was most likely a metaphor for a billion years.

Here are the interesting snaps that I took of the artifacts in the museum:

This is the Deinonychus; a running reptile that was also a carnivorous that lived in North America during the middle Cretaceous.

This is a pic of the pre-historic baboon.

This is the Pelycosaurus, and it lived in the Lower Permian rocks of North America. These species included both herbivores and carnivores. Its remains are found in the red beds of Texas and it lived about 270 million years ago.

The king of the jungle; the lion.

This is a pic of the pre-historic ape man who lived about 1.5 million years ago.

This is what ancient molluscus look like; they still look beautiful.

So whenever you feel like checking out the creation of the world, do pay the museum a visit 🙂
