Snakes with Legs?

I am going pull a vein on snakes that I have stumbled upon.

I would love others thoughts on it, but it would be helpful if you read each article and the one video as it puts us on the same page information wise. There MIGHT be something neat here, I am not sure yet.

I post it not to assert that this is the truth, only that it seems that there may be a connection to Genesis & science.

Allow me to develop the thought over the next several days. I will post each link as I read them and perhaps some might like to follow along. If my hunch proves incorrect, good.

PS The mission here is to not have a fight but to do research and dig and search for truth. Ok? God tells us that if we seek, we will find.

PSS. I don’t see this as a vain attempt to know all about every detail of scripture; but simply to look deeper into what we do know and wonder about what we don’t. I don’t think God minds that we wonder about Him, our history or the scriptures. If we come with an open mind and heart, perhaps, He can show us wonders!

In the book of Genesis, Chapter 3 we find this story….for the purpose of this post, we are looking at verse 14

8They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” 10He said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” 11And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” 13Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”14

The LORD God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you will go,
And dust you will eat
All the days of your life
;

15And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
He shall bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

Ok read this short article from AIG, sorry Ted

https://answersingenesis.org/genesis…lly-have-legs/

After reading that, images like come to mind…maybe…

Now, check out his article, watch the brief little video…it’s important

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-w…ost-their-legs >>>”Sonic hedgehog”

>>> SNIP >>>Snakes used to wander the Earth on legs about 150 million years ago, before they shifted from strut to slither.Now, two scientists have pinpointed the genetic process that caused snakes to lose their legs. What’s more, they say the “molecular machinery” for leg development still persists in snakes after these millions of years — it’s simply switched off. <<<

snip >>>
Two studies pinpoint a stretch of DNA that could explain how snakes evolved from four-limbed animals.A team led by Len Pennacchio and Axel Visel at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California analysed the ZRS DNA sequence — which regulates a key limb-development gene called Sonic hedgehog (SHH) in a range of animals — in the genomes of various snakes. The authors found that snakes’ ZRS sequence differs markedly from that of other vertebrates. Mice in which the ZRS had been replaced by the cobra or python version did not express SHH in their developing limbs and were born with stumps instead of legs.
In a separate study, Francisca Leal and Martin Cohn at the University of Florida in Gainesville identified a series of deletions in the ZRS common to several snake species, but not seen in limbed vertebrates. In experiments in mice and cell culture, these mutations reduced the activity of the ZRS. <<<

So…..if you watched the above video, here it is again its only two minutes long… >>> http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-w…ost-their-legs

Evolutionists seem to see evidence that snakes once had legs, but LOST them! Where have we heard this before?
Appears that they see a genetic circuit that controls limb development. Umm, very interesting.

Do you see where this may be heading?

They seemed to have discovered a “break” in the circuit… the switch has been shut off.

Perhaps God Himself is responsible for this “break”….way back at the time of Genesis….thus… as it is written…


The LORD God said to the serpent,

“Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you will go,
And dust you will eat
All the days of your life;


Truth? I don’t know, I am just connecting dots…
There is still more to this story…

Here’s another piece of the puzzle… snakes with four legs? >>>
