From the Atoll jellyfish that
pulses and flashes to the Angler fish with its luminous lures to attract
prey, the way light is used by these creatures runs the whole gamut
of imagination. Some fish and squid provide counter illumination, that
is, a predator looking up at the shadows of its prey in the light above,
would normally see the shadows of its prey, but with counter illumination,
such as squid and other marine animals use, they can make themselves invisible
by matching the light intensity from photophores along their bellies. ...'Lair

Fish only illuminate light
when something happens necessitating this response, such as major disturbances
in the water like fish crashing into each other or attack, etc.
Most deep sea fish have
large eyes to draw in as much light as possible, thanks to their well equipped
retina. Unlike the human retina which has two types of photoreceptor cells,
cones for day and rods for night, deep sea fish have only the rods, with
some being 3 to 4 sections of rods deep. In addition, their rods are up
to five times as long as a humans. Maybe Creator-God knew they couldn't
develop the electric light and that man could and once man knew that, would.
Each rod is densely packed with light absorbing pigment molecules, sensitive
to a very narrow range of wavelengths. Who could have made these pigment
molecules possible and made them to be sensitive as they are? Must have
been the intelligent Creator we call God; had to be!
A fish's own retinal absorbs
in the ultraviolet region, but when attached to a
it is 'retuned' to absorb light of a different frequency.."By
changing the amino acid sequence of the protein, you can shift the sensitivity
of a visual pigment
virtually anywhere from UV
to far red."....Julian
Partridge, biologist at the University of Bristol.
All that remains of sunlight
in deep water is a narrow band, the rest having been filtered out by particles
in the water and chemicals dissolved in the water. This narrow band is
between 470 and 480 nanometers and fish are tuned from 468 to 494 nanometers,
which allows also for the bioluminescent
light created by other sea creatures. A great intelligence designed it
to be this way.
But there is still much
to understand, such as, why many fish have yellow lenses filtering out
80% of the blue light that does reach them.."These
filters remove photons
when you would think the animals would try to capture as many as possible.
And there are more than 10 different yellow 'lenses' with completely unrelated
Douglas at the Applied Vision Research Centre, City University in London.
Who could have designed it to be this way?
This enables the bioluminescence
of the other fish to be more easily seen. Yellow lenses are not found in
fish that live deeper than 1000 meters.."This
supports the idea that their
are designed to pick out bioluminescence",
which are overpopulating some waters are held in check by sponges which
grow on the mussels, encapsulating them, preventing them from opening their
shells to feed or breathe..Environmental

rarely die of old age and even when they do die, they rarely sink to seabed,
fall over sideways and become completely preserved by a covering of sediment.
And yet, this is exactly the unlikely scenario
that seems to have preserved the Lebanese fossil fish."
Peter Forey is studying to determine the cause of this occurrence,
which many believe to be the great
"Normally fish are eaten
by a variety of carnivores.(flesh
eaters), or their bodies are degraded
and broken up by scavengers.(garbage
eaters; nature cleans up after its self, in
the blood, in the forest;
teach your children
the seabed, especially by crustaceans
such as shrimp. What little remains
of the fish skeletons are then moved around and separated by water currents.
The surviving bones and teeth are eventually scattered and buried in the
sediment. So what happened to preserve intact such a diversity of fish
bodies and skeletons of all ages?"....'A

Many and various fossil
fish have been found in the Lebanese desert,
Parrot Fish looks
the same as they do today. Likewise the turtles,
get our food, we go to the store or preferably, to the garden. We had to
be taught this. The roots of plants have an inborn intelligence that 'tells
them' to go down, not up toward the Sun, like the rest of the plant grows.
This onboard programming directs plant growth in different ways such as
rapidity of growth, structure, completed size, coloring, adaptability to
such things as environment including resistance to wind, etc. One part
of the plant reaches for the Sun and the other reaches into the ground.
Incredible intelligence programmed this design of life on Earth.
