So what's the two-humped camel, chopped liver? They tend to be used in more mountainous areas, IIRC.

Okay, why did God make roaches so fast you can't step on them? And why did He make flies stick to the ceiling so you can't swat them without risking a broken neck? And why did He make mice breed so fast that as soon as you trapped one 40 others would appear?

That dude is a Dadaist. I wouldn't turn my back on Him.

Ooooookaaayy... and the significance of this is...
Even as supporting Creationism this is just cumbersome. It sounds like God sat down and just started sticking things together for life in the desert, (Okay, you need this, and this, and some of these, and don't worry about that, and...) and plopped the camel down in it right from day one. As if it sprang fully formed, as from the brow of Zeus? now there's a mixed religious metaphor for you.
Of course it's also been said that a camel is a horse designed by a committee.

Would someone tell me why God created stinkbugs? And those nasty house centipedes that freak me out? And ticks! What's up with those? C'mon creationists! Inquiring minds wanna know!

According to Ogden Nash:

"God in His wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why."

Spanked by Panda Rosa! Ouch!!

Animals have some pretty amazing traits when you think about it. Man, I hope we don't start seeing The Amazing Creator's Gila Monster, etc. And (wild) rats? They can live practically anywhere!

All this time I though God created natural selection to make sure the species were numerous, diverse and work well in their climate. I guess God personally taught them some classes in the creation of the universe that I was not invited to.

If you ask me, it would be because a world without deserts would be considerably less awesome than a world with deserts. It's not like a desert is something unpleasant that we'd be better off without. And if you don't have a desert with animals that can endure the rigors of the desert, you'll just have instead a forest, an ocean, a prairie, a tundra, a lake, or a mountain with animals that can withstand the rigors of those habitats.

My hump, all eighty pounds of it, Is filled with fat-my body fuel -- not water as some people believe
Quote:
When the hump gets smaller, it starts to tip to one side. But when I get to a nice oasis and begin to eat again, my hump soon builds back to normal.
Quote:
In fact, I've been known to go eight days without a drink, but then I look like a wreck. I lose 227 pounds, my ribs show through my skin, and I look terribly skinny. But I feel great! I look thin because the billions of cells lose their water. They're no longer fat. They're flat.
Wow, someone sur flits from one idea to the next...
My hump contains fat not water! My food instantly converts into fat! My cells are mostly water! But not my hump, that's just fat!



It's like this dromadery is some mystic being held together by some force that binds it all together.

Wow it sounds like the camel was created in the creator's image. Maybe God is the Great Flying Camel in the sky

I guess the Amazing Creators Camel was created on the Third Day, ie, Hump Day.

The Amazing Creator Camel sounds like a children's show, where the protagonist is a camel that brings things to life, like Barney or the Cat in the Hat (knows a lot about that) do.

After reading that, my first thought was 'Isn't it brilliant how evolution develops creatures perfectly suited for their environment?!'

I had the same reactions when I first read it. I think it would make an amusing college biology assignment to write a rebuttal.

I think we are all missing the most amazing thing about this glurge. A camel wrote it!! Camels are on the internet. Bout time.


There is also no information on wether this camel can fit through the eye of needle.

Reading Off topic?

Not original to me:
The One L Lama, he's a priest.
The Two L LLama, he's a beast.
And I will bet a silk pajama,
There isn't any Three L LLLama.

courtesy Ogden Nash

Well, that does trump the Creator's Camel, if you ask me (which nobody did).

He also forgot to tell us that we could learn more amazing facts about camels by reading the Bible, where those scientists wrote them all down. Or something.
