And God Created Bombardier Beetles

2

Bombardier beetles are natures’ most sophisticated, ultra high-tech, killing machines. They have 2- separate reservoirs in their anterior containing the reactant chemical compounds hydroquinone and hydrogen peroxide.

For defense or prey, the beetle contracts muscles that force the two reactants into a mixing chamber containing catalytic enzymes. Combined, the reactants undergo a violent exothermic chemical reaction raising the temperature to the boiling point of water and then shoot out with deadly accuracy.

When discussing ‘creationism vs. evolution,’ the bombardier beetle if often cited by both sides as an example to support their arguments of intelligent design.

Creationists say, “Who but an all powerful God could create an insect with such a complex system of defense in 6000-years?”

To which evolutionists say, “You’re asking us to believe some ghost in the sky labored over the design of millions of bugs based on a collection of symbolic stories told over 2000 years ago?”

When the loud discussion gets to this point, it’s best to walk into the next room and pet the cat.
