Weaver Ants

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Weaver ants are among the rulers of the forest canopy. Unlike most species of tree-dwelling ants, they are not dependent upon finding hollow branches or gaps under the bark of their host. These industrious insects make their own homes in unique fashion.  When a fertile queen establishes a new colony, she finds a suitable leaf on an uncolonized tree. She lays the first brood of eggs and feeds and protects them until they reach maturity. At that point the workers take over...

The Dazzling Dragonfly

Posted on Sep 6, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

If you are ever around lakes, ponds, streams or wetlands, keep your eyes open for a fascinating and beautiful long-winged insect. You might see one perched on a reed, warming in the sun, with its wings outstretched. Or you might see one zooming over the water like a little supercharged helicopter, zigzagging and darting this way and that. They might race towards you at a terrific speed, stop in an instant, hover, move backwards, buzz to the left, and dart to the right,...

Buzz Pollination: Evidence for Design

Posted on Apr 26, 2013 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

During the cold winter months, when the ground is frozen and snow often covers the soil, I spend many hours studying various plant species in preparation for the spring season.  Recently, while studying the details of an old “friend,” Dodecatheon pulchellum, commonly known as the shooting star, I came across a fascinating statement in a book titled, Sagebrush Country: A Wildflower Sanctuary, by Ronald J. Taylor.  It said: “The unusual shape of the shooting star flower...

Plant Evidence of Creation

Posted on Mar 22, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

Evolutionists writing about plants, contend that plants “evolved” over a period of millions of years.  James Brackenbury, in his book, Insects and Flowers:  A Biological Partnership (p.9) wrote, “More than a hundred million years ago the plant kingdom discovered (emphasis mine) that as far as its relationship with insects were concerned, fair exchange was no robbery.  Insects could be duped into rendering a service, i.e., pollination, as long as they were offered a suitable...

Male Praying Mantis: Plight or Passion?

Posted on Mar 4, 2011 in Articles | 0 comments

Personally, praying mantises give me the “creeps.”  I am not like a friend of mine who, as a child, kept a praying mantis named, “Barbara” in his bedroom.  To me, there has always been something sinister and austere about them.  After reading about their reproductive habits, I had more reason to feel this way. As a part of the mating process, the male praying mantis is actually eaten by the female!  If a male is lucky, the female will wait until during or after the ritual...

Bee Dances and Communication

Posted on Nov 24, 2010 in Articles | 0 comments

Years ago, I saw a very interesting Moody Science film featuring the Dance of the Bees. Research first analyzed by Martin Lindauer 60 years ago showed that bees actually communicate by doing a type of energetic and vibrating waggle dance. This communicates the direction and the distance to a food source to other bees. (I wondered if they could actually talk but were just having fun doing some kind of charades at a bee party.) More recently, the Sept. 27, 2010, New York...

Hurrah for Ants!

Posted on Jul 29, 2010 in Articles | 0 comments

Many of us are familiar with the children’s counting song, “The ants go marching one by one…” Scientists have now discovered that at least some species of ants do appear to be counting their steps when they go marching out in search of food.  After training some desert ants to look for food in a specific location, scientists investigated how the ants could consistently locate the same source of food with seeming ease. It is known that ants will leave scent markers to guide...
