Once again, as seen on Slashdot, someone posted an article about some funky wasp (beware: Slashdotted server) that turns cockroaches into zombies, so they can be used for food for their young. Of course, everyone’s going “wow! what an evolutionary achievement! how many evolutionary failures must there have been before the first momma wasp hit those particular neurons?” and I’m like……. “uh, what? that’s just rediculous”
Apparently, people use parastites as a base to prove evolution, for some odd reason. The prevalent phrase they use is “how could such a wuving god ever cweate so much suffering?” It just shows their ignorance.
God didn’t create them that way to begin with, sillies. Way back (you know, only 6000 years) when He created the universe, everything was… well… literally perfect. No death, unnatural or otherwise. (Including parasitical.) Some even casually think that some, if not all, animals talked. Eve sure didn’t seem freaked out when a (then-legged) snake started trying to convince her to eat off that tree. But that’s another topic…
The point is, the universe was perfect. Up until the point where human-kind sinned. Then everything pretty much completely and totally changed. Death was introduced into the world as a punishment for that sin, along with various other punishments that are obviously still around today.
Since there was no death before, being carnivorous was impossible. The only way to eat meat was to kill something! Everything was designed to live off plants. Heck, they even say the roots of the T-Rex’s teeth were too shallow to eat anything BUT plants. So think “gigantic giraffe with scales”. Mosquitos probably drank fruit juice, too. Bees still eat nectar, so I think it’s safe to say that wasps did, too.
So there you go. …and some people say that scientists aren’t prejudiced. Seems they study things with the sole purpose of trying to see how it can fit into their preconceived ideas. Pssh.
