At 570 million years ago he designed a hard shell creature called anthropoids that have an exoskeleton, such as insects. These early models included trilobites that lived in the ocean from 570 million years ago to 245 million years ago. Because they spanned so much time the petroleum engineers and geologist use these animals for dating rock formations. God even left fossilized trilobite tracks so man could determine how they propelled themselves.
About this time God designed invertebrates, which are soft-bodied animals with a hard shell such as todayís snail. The early invertebrates were mollusks with a single twisted shell. God was allowing his creations to eat each other and he was testing out various types of armor and offensive weapons such as claws, teeth and poisons. In the ocean with its constant temperature and ability to carry nutrients, Godís imagination went wild. He designed, developed and tested creatures and monsters of every kind and description. He tested shapes, colors, propulsion systems, breathing systems and digestive systems, and all the while keeping the plants and animals compatible so they could feed on each other.
God wanted man to walk on land and breathe air and not be bound to the water. God also wanted man to have a skeleton with flesh on the outside. His first design of a vertebrate was using various types of fish with bony heads to house the brain and a flexible spine that provided support for the flesh and also housed the nervous system.
