Creation is something that is so beautiful as it is life in this earth no matter if it is an animal or a human being. God created everything perfect in the making of animals and humans. Even the way in which we were made God made with a specific order and with time to show his perfection in the making of creation. Going to the zoo with a different mindset set on this assignment was very interesting because I saw the animals different as if I would have just gone for fun. I saw the difference and similarities that they have to human beings. My observations when I went to the zoo were the different ways in which animals react to things.

Another point is that we weren’t made just like everything else on earth. “God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female.” (Genesis 1:27) God created us special to be of his image he didn’t just say let there be man and women and Adam and Eve appeared.
