Job 5:9 ~ ~ “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.”

Growing up on a farm, I had many chances to study spider webs. Contrary to being a “halloween” decoration, a sign of decay and scary places, they are a showcase once again of the wonder of creation and of the Creator.

Spider webs have been the wonder and source of study of engineers, fabric designers, and artists. None have been able to duplicate them.

The spiders make a variety of different kinds of strands, all with a special purpose. Some lines are sticky to catch prey, while some are not, so the spider can negotiate the web without getting caught himself. That is one thing I always wondered about myself—why they didn’t get caught. God had that all figured out. They also have a drag line from the top, on which they swing and lower themselves to their feast. I’m sure many of you have seen that spider swing before your eyes sometime in a dark old building.

The construction material of the web is the envy of industry. It’s made up of crystalline and amorphous materials. Amorphous means that it lacks a long-range order, whereas crystalline means, of course, having a structure like a crystal. These two materials combine in the perfect order to create the best characteristics of wire for strength and rubber, for mobility.

Usually when we make something stronger, it becomes more brittle. But God only knows how to equip the spider with the ability to go the opposite way… the threads become stronger, they also become more elastic!

Have at it, evolutionists, in explaining the simple, sometimes aggravating, spider web!!!

The spider was created with all the instinct and equipment it needed on the sixth day of creation.

“and God saw that it was good.”
