In his wisdom, God gave us earthworms to help regenerate soil and break down waste, and we're using the creatures. Creepy evolutionists at Darwin's Ranch are stealing credit from God and giving worms credit for the ecology that led to the Cambrian Explosion. What are those ranch hands smoking, anyway?
To burrow into the rest, click on "Thank God for Earthworms!"Despite their size, earthworms are surprisingly helpful creatures. They occasionally venture above ground in broad daylight but are mostly night crawlers. They are best known for their underground habits, such as recycling organic waste, aerating soil, and helping organic matter to decompose.Earthworms are detritivores—garbage eaters—the ultimate in dirt-digesting junk-food consumers. They eat almost anything—scraps of fruit, morsels of dead animal flesh, leaf litter, etc. As an earthy, underground version of “filter feeders,” they ingest whatever is buried and rotting in topsoil or within near-surface soil. Meadows and pastures are crawling with worms! Their numbers may reach above 300,000 per acre, especially in chalky clay soil. The aggregate weight of a dairy farm’s earthworms likely outweighs the total weight of livestock grazing above them.
Our Creator has blessed us with crawly things. Earthworms are beneficial for soil and waste disposal as well as other ways of helping us.
