A duck-billed dinosaur which was a favourite prey of the Tyrannosaurus Rex grew “like crazy” from egg to adult-size to avoid being eaten by the king of the dino world, a study revealed Wednesday. The Hypacrosaurus grew three to five times faster than any of its predators including the T-Rex — and also had babies at a much younger age, expanding its numbers to give it an evolutionary edge. So it gave itself an better evolutionary chance by growing fantastically quickly — from infancy to adulthood in 10-12 years, compared to up 20-30 years for the T-Rex. … The Hypacrosaurus also reproduced earlier, reaching sexual maturity at only two or three years of age. “That’s another added bonus when facing predators — if you can keep reproducing, you’re set, it’s the stuff of evolution,” said Cooper.
Oh really? Was this a conscious decision on the part of the dino? Did he grunt with mental anguish until he had a growth spurt? Ridiculous! With that kind of reasoning, you would expect that people who are victimized by criminals would eventually grow taller and bigger.
Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
Would it not make more sense to say that the Hypacrosaurus was designed this way by his Creator? The problem is that most scientists refuse to see the evidence of the Creator’s genius all around them. And so, they are left to speculate how such intricate creatures evolved by chance.
Honestly, the idea that an animal could consciously change his growth rate, species, or any other function is beyond comprehension unless, of course, you subscribe to the evolutionary hypothesis. Without God, nothing really makes sense.
