OCTOPUS

Octopi, whose high capacity for learning has been tested in the laboratory, are also masters of camouflage. This ability depends upon specially created skin cells. Thanks to their skin cells’ ability to change color, become opaque and reflect light, they can protect themselves from danger and also warn other octopi of potential danger. Some octopi do even more: They camouflage themselves by imitating other sea creatures. These, known as “mimic octopi,” assume the appearance of frightening-looking life forms such as lionfish and sea snakes. But could octopi have acquired these features in stages over the course of time, as evolutionists maintain? Were the first octopi strange-looking, semi-developed creatures with rudimentary organs, very different from those living today? One of the main ways of determining this is by examining the fossil record. When we do that, no matter how far back in time we go we encounter fossil octopi exactly the same as their counterparts living today. This is one of the main proofs of the invalidity of evolutionist claims. Octopi did not evolve, but were created by Omniscient and Almighty God, together with all their characteristics.
