Evidence of Evolution Found on Edisto Island!

It's an amazing discovery.

One scientists have been searching for for over 150  years.

Charles Darwin would be proud of me.

I found proof of the Theory of Evolution. Right here in South Carolina. On Edisto Island, no less.

His name is Eddy Stow, and he's a wonderful example of the evolutionary process. It appears his existence began millions of years ago when one of South Carolina's legendary palmetto trees washed up on the beach. A fierce ocean swell set it upright, and in a quick few hundred thousand years, miraculous ( I mean evolutionary) changes began to happen.

A horseshoe crab caught an ocean wave one night and landed on his head. Sadly, it died, but its exoskeleton remained and became a covering that shielded Eddy's cranium from the blazing southern sun. The buffeting sand of the island wore a trench in Eddy's face, and oyster shell-like teeth imbedded themselves in perfect alignment between his woody lips. Spanish moss, a common flora to the island, took up residence on his cranial summit and above his grinning mouth.

Little sea creatures, towing their shiny shell houses like mini-RVs, slime-climbed their way up Eddy's neck and fused themselves to indigenous fishing line dangling from his cockleshell ears, making an attractive, yet functional accessory.

Today, Eddy gazes out over the tranquil waters of the sound with unblinking golf-ball eyes, remnants of a long ago primeval ancestor. Special UVA protective lenses have developed, one for each sight socket, to protect his rubbery orbs. With the humor that only science can provide, a glittering signature of sorts scribbles its way across the blue earpiece. A lesser scientist might ignorantly say the squiggle looks like a name, Ray somebody, but we know better. Evolution never signs its work.

A Creator, on the other hand, does.

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-- his eternal power and divine nature-- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made" (Gen. 1:20).

 Late Breaking News: 
Eddy Stow is no longer considered a viable proof of the Theory of Evolution.  Upon closer examination, instead of evidence of the evolutionary process, aquatic scientists found what seems to point not to a process, but to a Creator. The publisher regrets any false belief this may have caused.
This is the signature plate, placed there by Eddy Stow's creator.
It's no surprise that the theory of evolution has gone unproven for over 150 years, because a false theory can never be proved. My tongue-in-cheek suggestion that something as creative and complex as Eddy Stow could have just randomly come together seems ludicrous, but evolutionists say the same thing about the amazingly complex forms of life that populate our world.

The Bible explains what happened when men left the true teaching of the creation of the world and embraced false notions:

"For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles" (Romans 1:21-23).

"They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-- who is forever praised" (Romans 1:25)

May I tell you about my new book, Hungry for God … Starving for Time, 5-Minute Devotions for Busy Women?

 Today's women want to connect with God, but in the craziness of life, it’s just not happening. You want practical, biblical answers to situations you face every day, but you don’t have hours to pore over Scripture.

You need a resource that answers the questions you’re afraid to ask out loud. Questions like:

• Is my situation hopeless?
• If God already knows what he’s going to do, why bother to pray? 
• Why have you allowed this to happen to me? 
• No one appreciates what I do. Why shouldn’t I quit? 

Each devotion begins with a Facetime question and ends with a biblical answer wrapped in a modern day parable. Like a spiritual power bar, Hungry for God … Starving for Time is packed with enough scriptural nutrition to get you through the day. Wherever you are—in break rooms, carpool lines, or wherever you can snatch five minutes of quiet reflection—Hungry for God … Starving for Time, 5-Minute Devotions for Busy Women is for you. 


  1. A great post, Lori. Eddie Stow-- Love it.

    Any relation to the Tom Hanks character in the movie Castaway? An evolved brotherhood perhaps?

  2. Well, after Tom spent a few months on that island, Eddie would make him look good! Eddie must be further along in his microevolution. . .

  3. You're a hoot, Lori. Funny but profound.
