    As you can see in the attached diagram, the Beetle has two glands which produce a chemical that, when mixed with Hydrogen peroxide, explodes as a boiling hot gas. The H2O2 is stored in little sacks. The mixture runs into a chamber at the back of the abdomen so it explodes outward. Now, without God, how could this evolve? Which part came first? Was it the Hydrogen peroxide. Not likely. That's toxic. You would at least have to have H2O2 AND the sacs that contain it. So right there we have two

    The bombardiers beetle is a small insect that uses a unique form self-defense involving chemical reactions. The beginning of this reaction is in the secretory lobes which produce a highly concentrated mixture of hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone that is sent to the collecting vesicle. Now, the reaction between hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone goes like this: the hydrogen peroxide decomposed into water and oxygen; when the oxygen mixes with hydroquinone it produces more water and quinone, a chemical

    from the back of the throat, travels from the back of its head, through its nostril, and out of its mouth. Clearly that is way too complex to be evolved, and evolutionist have no idea how because no other animal has that type of tongue. The Bombardier Beetle manufactures chemicals that makes a explosion to protect itself. There's no way that this bug could evolve, it needs all of its parts their all at once or you don't have the animal. God created this bug was created

    Insects rely on chemistry to survive. Ants use pheromones to communicate, fireflies have complex chemical reactions in their bodies to achieve bioluminescence, bees use chemistry in making their honey - their food source, and their wax. The bombardier beetle creates a scalding hot liquid to attack and defend itself, and the insects in the embioptera order spin silk to create large common nests. Insects are always using chemistry to survive. Supersocieties could not function without communication

    This can be seen on page three paragraph four when the authors state that “Other bombardier beetles related to Stenaptinus (subfamily Brachininae), such as those of the large genus Brachinus, probably aim their spray in much the same manner as Stenaptinus. Indeed, we found the abdominal tip of Brachinus to resemble that of Stenaptinus in every

  • A Major Measure Of Biological Fitness

    870 Words  | 4 Pages

    A major measure of biological fitness in a population is the fecundity, or reproductive success rate, of female organisms (Berger et al, 2008). For insects in particular many factors influence the number of eggs produced during the lifetime of a female. One key factor in insect reproduction is the ambient environmental temperature. Insects are ectothermic and therefore rely on their environment to provide the heat needed to carry out normal reproductive functions. Ambient heat dependence for insects
