and amber research, in their book.The
Amber Forest, Princeton University Press, explains that animals.(frog,
beetle and weevil).trapped
in tree resins that later hardened to amber are a good source of ancient
Organisms in amber date
back millions of years according to radio
carbon dating. Shown in the book are a frog, 30 to 40 million years
old and a beetle, allegedly
20 to 30 million years old. Paul Cano at California Polytechnic State University
extracted DNA from a 120 million year old weevil in Lebanese amber. Although
these figures are highly suspect once one understands radiometric
dating methods, the animals, however old they may be, look
as they do today.
Did termites exist first, or was it the protozoa.and
that populate their alimentary tract.(the
entire passage that food goes through in a body, from start to finish)?
You can see it all had to exist together or there would be no termites.
Termites can't digest what they ingest.(eat).without
them. And they eat wood! Why do they select wood to eat when they can't
digest it without microbes especially since other types of food would have
been more easily obtainable? Is the Creator confounding
After each molt.(to
cast off, to shed the hair, skin, horns, etc.),
the termite must reinfect itself with these symbionts.
To do this they have developed a unique type of inoculation.(the
putting of bacteria into itself, soil, a culture medium, etc.).in
which the newly molted worker obtains the symbiotic microbes from the rectal
discharges of its nest mates.
"Termites under attack send
out a seismic.(having
to do with an earthquake).alarm
signal warning the rest of the colony to run away if a danger is sensed.
They do this by waggling their heads in different directions. Termites
also groom each other (exhibiting.altruistic

could produce the complex mechanism that is the human body just doesn't

Province of Germany, estimated to be between 30,000–300,000 years old.

Goodwin, a molecular biologist at the Human Identification Center in Glasgow,
Scotland and one of the researchers involved in this new analysis, that
of a rib bone in a baby's skeleton found in Russia's Caucasus Mountains,
which provided better analysis than the remains examined in 1997 which
came from the Neander Valley. Details
to keep in mind are: What exactly are the stages of beetle evolution? Given
these stages, how does Darwinism get us from one to the next?
The Germans examine the little.(1/2
beetle: This tiny beetle is 1/2 inch long, but it has a very mighty weapon.
When an enemy is closing in behind him and just about ready to eat him,
an explosion occurs right in the face of the enemy with a very bad smelling
gas that shoots out from two tail tubes the temperature of hot water. How
did he do that?
This little fella has such
an incredible system to protect itself. He can spray with astonishing accuracy
500 to 1000 explosive 100º Centigrade.(or,

generate a hot defensive secretion.
We are baffled that the beetle is able to withstand the heat and irritation
of the secretion. When it discharges, it inevitably.douses
itself, but seems to suffer no ill effects."....Professor
