Amazing the variety found in ants. I read an article on them. Little ants, huge ants, flying ants, soldier ants, worker ants, nurse ants, Queen ants, male ants (whose sole purpose is to supply semen and then die…sounds suspiciously like some human male behavior) and a huge variety of nest building techniques, mating techniques, fighting techniques, and colony types. There are quadrillions of them. All of them in one pile would weigh more than all the humans on earth in a similar pile..
As I read the article, I had a thought. Later, during a fitful sleep, the thought woke me up so I came to write it down. The only place the writer struggled was in the attempt to answer two questions: where did the ants come from and why was there such a huge variety? They came about by magic. A wasp (poof!) became the first ant many millions of years ago and the all-powerful force, evolution, caused the simple ants to change into a massive complexity of ants over time. It’s impossible of course. I will say what no one is allowed to say and teach for a university or work on a government project or receive funding from a research foundation. Evolution is magic. It’s at worst wishful thinking and at best a convenient way to avoid having to say “God” in the laboratory. Or perhaps to avoid saying “We don’t know.”
Simple things do not become complex things over time. Complex things do not become even more complex things over time. It’s impossible. It violates the laws of physics and the universe. We don’t see it happening anywhere today. Instead everything decays from the complex (the well ordered and evenly mowed lawn) to the simple (the chaos that is my back yard.) One must supply intelligent energy in order to avoid everything complex from degrading to the simple. (I don’t have the energy to supply energy to my back yard.)
People don’t like to say POOF! so they say EVOLUTION! Same thing. And we know, absolutely no way, no chance, no how, never do these same people want to say GOD! I get it. Scientists feel silly saying “God designed and implemented the incredible ant kingdom.” They would rather say “over untold billions of years an ant appeared having evolved from a (magic) wasp that itself came from a simpler (magic) creature, etcetera, etcetera.” Leave out the word magic and a textbook is written and the world is “taught.” But they know, deep down they know that this isn’t science. It’s why they get so outraged when challenged and why they belittle their opponents and mock them with such scorn and passion. “Do not say it! Don’t you dare! You shut up, right now!” I shall say it. “The Emperor Evolution IV, has….no clothes.”
Oh I know, this post might draw that same kind of derision. “Smash this kind of thinking down! Destroy it! The man’s an idiot! One of those ignorant Bible-thumpers! Science has demonstrated beyond any doubt that evolution is true!” I would get untold numbers of such comments but fortunately I don’t have that kind of circulation. None of my three followers is likely to disagree with me. I write this just because I can.
What’s especially amusing philosophically is to note that a species of South American ants has escaped it’s shores and is spreading around the world. As it does, it wipes out the other ants nearby. Eventually, it seems likely it will eliminate all other ants in the world. The amazing, impressive and brilliant complexity of the ant world will have become…..simple. Yep. That is after all, how the world really works.
2 Peter 2 3 Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water… (NASB)
