Don't Let Wilson See This.
« on: November 25, 2016, 01:54:07 PM »
"For the last three million years, this ant species that lives on Fiji, has been living in the small cracks on the limbs and trunks of trees, and has been growing a certain kind of plant for its own food. The ant species, officially Philidris nagasau, is not remarkably different from a common black ant, but its work on growing a small plant, the Squamellaria plant, which really looks more like a fungus, sets it apart from many others.

"Researcher Guillaume Chomicki, a botanist at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, said in a new study just released, the ants gather the seeds from the Squamellaria plant and deposit them in the cracks in the trees.  As the plants start to grow, the ants use their own waste to fertilize them ... When the plants mature and produce fruit, the ants harvest the seeds and begin the process all over again.  Chomicki said he found the ants living in every plant he found, but not in other [types of] plants, suggesting the ants and the plants depend on each other for survival"

That is nice. Ants also breed butterfly for there silk. They milk the caterpillars and let them grow and reproduce. A symbiotic relationship. Great ants are smart farmers.

‘Why would God create such a disgusting creature as a C0CKR0ACH?’

"In fact, while they get a bad reputation from their pest cousins, there are thousands of species of c0ckroaches that do not infest homes, and actually play vital ecological roles ... In forests, one of c0ckroaches’ most important roles is in breaking down leaf litter that accumulates continually on forest floors. Soil microbes actually do most of the work, but c0ckroaches play a significant part. They break down the leaf litter and move it around, making it more accessible to the microbes. They also carry the microbes around. Their digestive tract and droppings are ideal places for the microbes to live ... This decomposing role is important because it makes the nitrogen trapped in the decomposing vegetation available in the soil again, acting as a fertilizer. This role is especially important in desert ecosystems.

"The other major function of c0ckroaches in the ecosystem is as one of the lower rungs on the food chain. They reproduce quickly and are high in protein, making them a good food source for all sorts of insectivorous animals. If the c0ckroach population were to disappear, most of us wouldn’t miss them, but we might miss the other animals that need them for a food source.

"The c0ckroach is very good at getting into tight spaces—a small c0ckroach can flatten its body to fit through a crack as thin as a dime (1.35 mm). Even a pregnant female roach can fit into a space as large as two stacked nickels (3.9 mm).They are also very fast—a c0ckroach can run 80 cm (30 inches) per second. Their backsides have paired appendages called cerci which detect airflow, and they instinctually run away from any sudden source of wind (for instance, generated by your shoe as you try to stomp on one) ...

"C0ckroaches did not evolve ... they first appear in ‘Carboniferous’ layers, supposedly 350 million years ago. But the only difference between c0ckroaches then and now is that they had external ovipositors. “In other words, they are practically identical.  But even today there are small differences between species of c0ckroaches; some carry their ootheca (egg capsule) internally until the baby c0ckroaches hatch, while others deposit the ootheca in a safe location. Evolutionists would explain this by saying that the c0ckroach was so spectacularly adapted to a range of environments that it didn’t need to change. But how did the c0ckroach get so adapted in the first place? We don’t see developing c0ckroaches; we see c0ckroaches that look virtually identical to living c0ckroaches today all throughout the fossil record. It’s inconceivable that a creature that is supposed to have predated the dinosaurs in the evolutionary timeframe would stay exactly the same while everything else changed around it.

"But c0ckroaches are also cited as evidence of extremely rapid evolution. Pesticides for c0ckroaches used to be sweet, but c0ckroach populations developed an aversion to sweet-tasting foods, thus avoiding the poisons.This is said to be fast-paced evolution, but is it really? In fact, probably some c0ckroaches in all populations had this distaste for sugar, so those were the ones that survived the sweet poisons. It only takes a few c0ckroaches to rebuild a colony of thousands, and all the descendants would then be the sweet-avoiding kind. It’s fast-paced natural selection, but it’s not evolution. It’s not clear that these roaches would even have a survival advantage in places without poison, because their distaste for sweets eliminates some possible food sources."

How Fish Find Their Way Back Home

"The larvae of fish that live in coral reefs are tiny, and they are not very good swimmers. They are pushed by currents away from the reefs on which they were hatched for days or weeks until they learn to swim. Then, somehow, around 60 percent of them make their way back to their birthplaces, where they spend the rest of their lives.

"Scientists know that they can navigate using the position of the sun by day. But they find their way at night, too, and now researchers think they know how: They are magnetic. 

"Researchers studied the larvae of Doederlein’s cardinalfish, Ostorhinchus doederleini, a reef fish that grows to about five inches long. They collected specimens near One Tree Island in the Great Barrier Reef, off the northeast coast of Australia.

"When the larvae hatch, currents carry them north-northwest, and experiments have shown that they consistently swim south-southeast guided by the sun back to their birthplace. But to see whether magnetic forces are also at work, the researchers tested them by using a device that creates a uniform magnetic field whose direction can be manipulated.

"With the larvae in a tank surrounded by the device, the scientists turned the earth’s normal magnetic north 120 degrees clockwise. The fish followed right along, swimming in the direction the researchers steered them. The study is online in Current Biology."

Selective Hearing

"Have you ever walked through a factory where the noise of rumbling machines filled the air, or an airport where planes constantly roared overhead? How could anyone work under these conditions without hurting their ears? It’s not just a problem in industry. Every day we repair our homes with noisy power tools and surround ourselves with blaring music.

"Yet most of the time, we hardly notice. It’s all because the Creator gave our sense of hearing a built-in safety mechanism that defies natural explanation. Your eardrum is wonderfully designed to sense the tiniest changes in air pressure. But this has a potential downside. Loud, sustained noises could easily push the delicate parts of the inner ear beyond their safety limit, causing permanent damage.

"By God’s wise design, however, something special happens under these conditions. God put a series of three tiny bones in your middle ear to pick up most vibrations. For their protection, He attached two tiny muscles to the first and last of these bones (the malleus and the stapes). At the instant these bones begin to vibrate beyond normal limits, the brain senses danger and sends a signal to tighten the muscles and momentarily shut down the ear’s sensitivity. This happens in a split second and is involuntary, a phenomenon called negative feedback. 

"The inner ear is thus protected from injury. In an opposite situation, with very soft sounds, the muscles may loosen somewhat to increase sensitivity. This delicate balancing act allows us to hear a wide range of sounds without damage.

"How could this built-in safety mechanism possibly arise naturally by evolution if early humans rarely experienced loud sounds other than perhaps thunder or the roar of a nearby predator? Constant loud sounds and background noises are a modern phenomenon, with industrial machinery, blaring audio speakers, and gas-driven motors. Yet the ear of the original humans was already fully equipped to protect us before these threats even arose.

"It is reasonable to suggest that the all-wise Creator planned ahead to protect our ears from modern industry’s noisy environments. In contrast, evolution cannot explain how random mutations could possibly plan ahead for future needs."

Women, particularly wives, have been around since caveman days. A jet engine can not compare to the miserable yelling of a woman.

Editor ...

"Once children are brainwashed into thinking a theory is a fact, it is nearly impossible to get them to even look at the scientific facts that do not align with their world view. And there are thousands of facts that prove that evolution could not have happened … so why are none of them in the biology textbooks? It is because evolutionists have such a firm grip on the public education system that they are able to keep all challenges to their pet theory out and have any teacher that dares to not get in line with this orthodoxy fired.

"What is behind evolution is old ages of time. There are hundreds of ways to test the age of the earth, 80 percent of which dates the earth at less than 10,000 years and the other 20 percent indicates an age of 10,000 to 1 million years, some of which are: The sun is shrinking in size by 5 feet per hour, so in 100,000 years the sun would have been so large that nothing on earth could live, and in 20 million years the sun would have touched the earth. At the rate the earth’s magnetic field is declining, nothing could have lived on the earth 25,000 years ago. The moon is receding from the earth and the earth’s rotation is slowing, limiting the age of the earth to 30,000 years, and many more facts"
