Botany – The Variety, Design, and Beauty of Plant Life

Today, botanists estimate that there are over 300 thousand species of plants, ranging from Lycopods like the tiny club moss, conifers like pine and the mighty cedar, and angiosperms like the beautiful rose or the wheat that makes a loaf of bread.

It’s safe to say that we would be in big trouble without these plants, for the plants take our carbon dioxide and convert it into breathable oxygen.

Plants help maintain our soil which would erode, and wash away without the intricate root structure.

Plants provide essential nutrients that we, as humans, need to survive. In fact, plants provide the majority of our food, including corn, rice, potatoes, and vegetables.

Most evolutionists would insist that every plant we see today slowly morphed into its present form from prehistoric algae. But that takes blind faith.

There’s a lot of difference between algae and a redwood – and no lineup of plant evolution can fill in the massive gaps from one kind of plant to another.

Plants were formed in the beginning, by an infinitely wise Creator who placed beauty and function in all things, and then created man in his image, with the ability to admire the beauty and intricate design of the plant life around him.
