Here at GIAN, we all know that God created the heavens and the earth.  But it’s always humbling to be reminded just how calculated, and astounding, creation really is.  The bible says that nature declares God’s glory.  So, I wanted to share 5 of the most awe striking, and somewhat scientifically unexplainable, natural phenomenons on the planet. Enjoy.

1. Sailing Stones are a geographical phenomena.  They are rocks that move along desert land creating a trail behind them.  They sometimes even change the direction they are headed in.  In 2014, after years of study, scientists concluded that this happens when large, thin floating ice sheets are driven by sun and shove into rocks, pushing them into motion.

2. “Moo North” is the name used to refer to the fact that cows and deer will only graze or rest when they are facing either north or south. Studies suggest that cows can sense the earth’s magnetic field, and use it to line up their bodies.  Mice can also sense the earth’s magnetic field, as well as some birds and bats, who use it for navigation.

3. Naga fireballs, also knows as Mekong lights, are glowing balls that naturally arise over the waters of the Mekong River.  They are described by locals to be reddish in color, floating up a couple hundred meters before disappearing.  Although many attempts have been made to explain this spectacle, scientists have yet been able to provide an adequate explanation.

4.“Fairy Circles” are circles of grass that surround unvegetated ground.  They typically vary in size, measuring between 7-49 ft in diameter. They are found mostly in Southern Africa but sightings have been documented in other areas of the world as well.  Scientists have attributed this unorthodox plant-life to sand termites who feed on grass and then burrow a hole in the ground, creating the appearance of a ring.  However, this theory has been ruled out, and, at this point, scientists have shrugged the formations off as a natural result of competing grasses killing each other off underground.

5. The next time you take a helicopter ride in Australia, make sure to have your pilot take you over Pink Lake Mount Hillier.  The 600m-long, bubblegum pink colored body of water is nestled within a forest and neighbored by the ocean.  The reason for the lake’s color is still a mystery, although it has been speculated that it is a result of an algae known as Dunaliella salina and a pink bacteria called halobacteria.

These five examples are just a few of thousands of mysterious fixtures of nature that have been cataloged.  I truly believe God made these things not only to reveal Himself to us, but to show us how much He loves us.  How great is our God!
