The Archer Fish – Evidence of Divine Creation

 The Archer fish is unique.  With its mouth just out of the water and its eyes submerged under the water, the Archer fish shoots streams of water at its prey. 

The Archer Fish is also known as the Banded Archer Fish and comes from small rivers and streams across Asia. It has a triangular shaped body that is primarily silver in color. Many elongated spots adorn the sides of the Archer Fish, as well as black and yellow markings on the dorsal and anal fins. The Archer Fish has the remarkable ability to spit water at insects above the water, with amazing accuracy. The insects then fall into the water where they are quickly devoured. Their accuracy is even more remarkable given the need to compensate for the visual distortion that the water’s surface causes. It is reported that the Archer Fish can spit at a target as far as 5 feet away! (Emphasis mine L.B., Article from Pet at

There are thousands of other examples in nature that show us that God is the creator of this universe.  This is one remarkable example.  Please meditate on this wonderful fish and ask yourself if you really believe it just happened to evolve with this marvelous hunting ability.   We know that water distorts our vision and yet this fish can look through the water and accurately hit its prey up to 5 feet away! 

God has revealed Himself to us in nature and in His Holy Word.  Nature tells us that there is a God and His revelation tells us who He is.  In other words, the Bible reveals the one God to us and nature declares His glory.  This remarkable fish is one creature which shows us the power and might of Jehovah God.
