Hurrah for Ants!

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

Bee Wings

“Dad, today I heard that science has proven that the bumblebee can’t fly!  That’s crazy!  Look at all the bees flying around in our flower garden, “said Mary. “I’ve heard that story, but what is the question I’ve always told you to ask?” asked Mr. Jones. “’What’s the evidence?’, or ‘How do they know?’,” said Mary. “That’s right.  In this case I found out that the story got started about 70 years ago in France when two scientists were looking at the large, heavy body and...

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...

Protecting the Plants

Posted on Oct 19, 2012 in Articles | 0 comments

“In the beginning, God created a beautiful, perfect world. It was full of life, without sickness, pain, suffering or death,” Mr. Jones told his son Billy and daughter Mary during evening family devotions. “However, Adam’s sin changed all that. When he disobeyed God (sin) and ate the fruit that God had told him not to eat, sin and death came into the world (Romans 5:12).” “Is that why bad things happen, Dad?” asked Mary. “Yes,...

The Beewolf

Posted on Jan 20, 2012 in Kid's Think & Believe Too! | 2 comments

Beewolf … you might guess that it is a bee that looks like a wolf or maybe a wolf with stripes like a bee … but it is neither. A beewolf is a special kind of wasp found in the United States, Europe and Northern Africa that hunts (like a wolf) bees. Beewolves do not live with other wasps; rather they live alone. In the late spring or early summer, the female beewolf (also known as a digger-wasp) digs an underground tunnel in sandy ground. At the end of her tunnel, she builds...

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...

Ants and Antifreeze

Posted on Feb 3, 2011 in Articles | 0 comments

Pun intended, but ants really do produce antifreeze, too!  Yep, it gets cold out there in the ground under a blanket of snow.  Since the ants don’t have their own central heating systems, they need to have a way to keep from freezing during the winter.  So the colder it gets, the more antifreeze is actually produced. Did this ability happen by chance over millions of years by mutation and natural selection as our evolutionist friends would claim?  Scientists have long...

Sunbeam Hot Springs: A Lesson in Presumption

Posted on Dec 3, 2010 in Articles | 0 comments

Sunbeam Hot Springs is a geothermally influenced spring located near Stanley, Idaho. Water emerges at the main vent at 72 degrees C (162 F) as it runs downhill before crossing under a highway and entering the Salmon River.  Because I was working periodically in the area between October 2000 and April 2002, I had five seasonal opportunities to sample the aquatic organisms.  In total, I found seven taxa of invertebrates, including five kinds of insects, one kind of water...

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...
