    Titan Arum??? The name looks more like
    Titan Eren from Attack on Titan

    So i’m calling this flower nicknamed "Attack on Titan Arum"

    โ€œO humanity! Obey your Lord, Who created you and those before you, so that you are saved. It is He Who has made the earth a resting-place for you, and the sky a canopy; and sends down rain from the sky, causing fruits to grow as a provision for you. So do not set up rivals to Allah (in obedience) when you know (the Truth).โ€
    Quran 2:21-22

    Lilies stink as well. Only one kind of fly polinates it.

    – โ€œDo not the disbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were one joined-entity, then We parted them? And We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?โ€ (Quran 21:30)

    OK like, why would it want to be a corpse? And if it mimmicked one would it not get eaten by animals and vultures? Silly……

    Beautiful ๐Ÿคฉ

  24. gaddyric on July 13, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    First flower: Neat but FUGLY. "It imitates a rotting corpse" Ohhhhhh
    Second flower: Also neat but also FUGLY. "They call it the corpse flower" Ohh
    Third Flower: Finally a really pretty one!
    Fourth flower: Back to fugly again. Da da da dahh da da da dahh
    I wonder if some of these (or all of them) flowers are survivors from the prehistoric time period. From what I vaguely recall there were many huge living things because of the extremely high levels of O2 at the time. Maybe these just evolved a bit to survive but maintained their relatively large (and FUGLY) size and appearances.
    Thanks for the post! Was pretty cool to see.

    THE DEVIL CHANGED THE SLOGAN; "Jack of all trades expert in ONE." to "Jack of all trades, expert in NONE." And has been discouraging all people from using their GOD GIVEN DISCERNMENT ever since. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!
    ===[ FALSE CLAIMS OF EVOLUTIONISTS. Can anyone answer the questions in the next segment? ]=================================
    Have you ever looked into the "evidence" (which is completely lacking) that the so called evolution ‘experts’ say they have, or do you blindly regurgitate what you’ve been indoctrinated to believe? Think about it for a moment; have you truly looked into the matter, or have you just taken for granted that what someone else said is true, because they claimed to be a teacher or some sort of expert? Anyone looking into these ‘experts’ claims, would soon find-out that what they claim to be true are all pure speculations, without any supporting data. The reason for their lies, are that either, they have to play along with the mainstream narrative, in order to keep their jobs and feed their families, due to severe indoctrination, along with a lack of interest, or worse yet, in order to promote a world view that allows them to live perverse and ungodly lives; in this manner, they fool themselves in believing that there are no consequences after death. Evolution is a faith, because it is based exclusively on assumptions that cannot be verified, and as you will see, it actually goes against well established scientific laws. All of the original proponents of this atheistic, evolutionary world view lived depraved lives. Most of them were not scientists, contrary to what you are led to believe, and some were outright con-men. Take Charles Darwin for an example, a child-man that dropped out of medical school and latter out of seminary school. Charles’ father got him his first job as a cabin-boy on the HMS Beagle. Charles had no training as a naturalist, he was a lazy flunky, his own father regarded him as a disappointment. It was on the Beagle where he got his perverted ideas regarding evolution. He married his first cousin, because he believed (due to his views on evolution) that it would be a genetic benefit to do so. The majority of his children die, some of suicide, and the rest from genetic problems. Several of his children, the ones that did survive were severely retarded. Another one of these humanists was, Aldous Huxley, he admitted that his zeal in promoting this world view, came from his desire to change societal morays, so as to accommodate his sexual lusts[see, Confession Of A Professed Atheist, 1966] (do a little research into the evolutionary-humanist founding fathers and you will see that they all led perverted lives) The model these ‘experts’ claim they have, would not qualify as a model in any other field, it has no equations, variables, constants, or statistical assumptions. These models consist of imagination, pictures, and lines on paper, they have no substance. their existence is to promote an atheistic world view; in essence a religious belief. I offer you an exceedingly better ‘religious belief’, one that has transcended time, it proclaims the true means of creation, all of it’s prophecies so far have been fulfilled and many are being fulfilled in our time, all of it’s archaeological evidences are true, it describes the nature of fallen man, and it shows us how to be reconciled with GOD. — remember that there’s no man that knows all things, not even a fraction of all there is to be known; do not believe those that say "there is no God"
    ===[ COULD ANY OF YOU EVOLUTIONISTS EXPLAIN THE FOLLOWING ]================================================
    HOW did the universe come from a dot-of-nothing exploding( i.e. "The Big-bang", which is one of the many [idiotic] claims put forth by the so called โ€œexpertsโ€ )? WHERE was this dot-of-nothing located? Was it inside of nothing? If so, how were they distinguished, the one from the other? HOW do you give nothing its locality? WHAT was the nature of the agency that caused this dot-of-nothing to explode? I.e. there must have been something else around to cause this dot to explode; HOW else would this dot go from a perpetual static-state to a dynamic one(exploding)? Having established that there must have been an agency in existence prior to the explosion, that would at a future point-of-time, decide to cause this dot to explode, WHERE was this agency located, and HOW do you distinguished it from GOD?
    HOW does gas come together to form a star, in defiance of Boil’s Law?( i.e. you can’t compress a gas into a solid ). If we were to ignore Boil’s law for the moment, WHERE did the gravitational forces come from that pulled the elements together into forming the first stars?
    Matter that is traveling in a straight line from an origin at the center of an explosion( i.e. "The Big-bang" ), in a vacuum, would continue in a straight line forever, unless something would cause it to alter its trajectory( "a body in motion will remain in motion", and it would also take the "path of least resistance" ), however, evolutionists say that there was nothing else in existence; WHAT then caused the elements to slow down, and to turn toward each-other so as to fuse together? Today, if we were to place gas molecules together, in any amount, they will move apart due to collisions, having insufficient gravitational mass to overcome this outward force, WHY are we supposed to believe, that at sometime in the distant past, that this was possible?!
    If the gravitational pull of stars are needed to form other stars, WHERE did the original stars come from?
    HOW do you reconcile the observation of an explosion occurring today, which will always result in chaos, with the claim of evolutionists, that order resulted from an explosion that occurred in the ancient past?
    HOW does a-bio-genesis work in real life? HOW exactly does rain falling on a rock for a long time produce life?
    Yes, we have all been indoctrinated to believe we came from apes, please show me the evidence and step me through the whole process! HAVE you ever seen any kind of animal turn into another kind? For example: a cat into a dog? a mosquito into a whale? I’ve seen many types of dogs but all remain as dogs, likewise with cats, birds, etc. Show me the many transitional forms in the fossil record. THERE ARE NONE! The only mutations observed are destructive ones(i.e. a loss of information, e.g. eyes disappearing, limbs disappearing, etc.). In order for evolution to work you need the opposite type of mutation, one that will increase information, not decrease it! By the way, destructive mutations are exactly what we would expect to occur in a universe that is slowly dying of radiant-heat loss.
    The second law of thermodynamics, information theory, and common seance, clearly show that order(information being a form of order) is lost over time. It is impossible for order to arise without an agency causing it, in our universe!!!
    This is a very short list of the hundreds of inconsistencies within the religious belief of evolution!
    ===[ PROBLEMS WITH RADIOMETRIC DATING ]====================================================================
    As an analogy, think of walking into a room in which you find a burning candle, after being in the room for a while the candle goes out. The only things you can know(while the candle was burning and while you remained in the room) are: the rate at which the candle was burning, and the current atmospheric conditions. You cannot know the original length of the candle before it was lit. You cannot know if the atmospheric conditions in the room were constant before you entered the room(e.g. did the oxygen/nitrogen levels vary over time?), you can not know if the candle burned at the same rate before you entered the room. Likewise with carbon dating: you do not know how much of the ‘daughter’ product(C14) was present in the specimen at the time of death. You cannot know how much of the ‘parent’ product(N2) was available in the atmosphere prior to the time of death (e.g. air pockets found in amber show that O2 levels were around 32% at the time the pine sap solidified; proving that the atmosphere was vastly different in the past. Current level of O2 is around 20%). Further more, you cannot know if the levels of solar radiation (a major contributor in converting N2 -> C14) were different from today’s, prior to the death of the specimen. – This is just an excerpt of the things that would not be known to us. Carbon dating along with any other radiometric dating method are useless, due to insufficient data. Furthermore, there are vast ( and proven ) age differences in Radiometric results, found while dating the same specimen at different sites (these differences also occur when re-dating a specimen at the same site).
    ===[TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST [He is the ONLY way to Avoid Eternal Torment]! THESE ARE THE ABCโ€™S OF SALVATION]===============
    Knowing that the penalty for sin is death(eternal torment in the Lake Of Fire); the Bible states, — Rom 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.". We all have sinned –God’s salvation is through Jesus His son, that by fully placing your trust in him, and confessing while believing the following, you may be saved.
    [A]dmit that you are a sinner(– Rom 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." ),
    [B]elieve in Jesus ( that He paid for your sins, died and resurrected on the third day ),
    [C]onfess Jesus as Lord( or Master; all men serve a master, they are either slaves to sin or slaves to God ), and you will be saved(–Rom 10:9, "that if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." ).
