I started The Sea Around Us a few weeks ago, and I wanted to bring you a narration except that the book doesn’t have a plot, so I’m just going to tell you what the author is telling the reader (me).
The book starts off at the creation of the world, from an Evolutionist’s view. It tells how single-celled organisms evolved into new plants and animals until they became the creatures of today. I think the first few chapters of this book are well done, but I don’t totally believe them.
One of the reasons I don’t believe in Evolution is because there is no proof (no fossils) to show that there were intermediate forms of animals. I’m also reading It Just Couldn’t Happen, which is talking about why Evolution isn’t necessarily true, but that’s another
I am also reading Genesis: Finding our Roots, which explains creation and onward in detail, and explaining little details that I always wondered, like how did Cain find a wife, for instance. The answer to that is that Cain and Abel were not the only children of Adam and Eve at that time, so there were other people living at that time. I realize now that I am talking about books that are not part of this “Not Really a Narration.”
But, before I keep talking about The Sea Around Us, let me tell you one of my questions about the Bible, and that question is: When were the dinosaurs created, and was man living at that time? Tell me what your thoughts are on that subject in the comments.
The next part of the book talks about the deep sea, and the animals that live there. The fish and sea life there have big eyes, so they can see with the little light down there. Some of them are phosphorescent, which means that they can emit light from themselves. Some squid, to escape from sperm whales, travel down into the dark depths of the ocean, which explains why sperm whales dive deep into the ocean.
The part after the previous part talks about the ocean floor, and the shape of it. The contours on the ocean floor are jagged, except for one spot on the Indian Ocean, where a ship tried to bring up stuff from the bottom and found it was flat. The book mentions the reason for this must be because lava came up and hardened, making a flat surface.
Please give me your thoughts on Evolution and The Sea Around Us in the comments, I really would love to hear them.
