Our Favorite Termite!

Posted by on Oct 11, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

 

Termites are famous for eating wood, especially in houses. Yet, termites cannot digest wood.  It is the microbes in the gut of the termite that break down the wood that allows it to be digested.

The termites cannot exist without the gut microbes, and the gut microbes cannot exist without the termites; both need each other in order to survive.

Some scientists say this relationship evolved by accident and chance.  Why would termites begin to eat wood if they could not digest it?  Why would gut microbes make their home in termite guts if they were not getting the food they needed?  Both termites and gut microbes had to be together from the beginning, mutually depending on each other.

Who would have thought that termites and their gut microbes give glory to God!
