They keep finding evidence that Genesis is correct. Check this out from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. He posted this yesterday at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: New Study: Butterfly Wings More Than Just Scales. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
God’s creation is amazing.[Yup!] Whether we look to the heavens at the massive scale of what he’s made or peer through microscopes to study atoms and molecules, we’re astounded by the complexity and design of his creation. And a new study [link omitted] on butterfly wings is no exception.
Hambo links to an article from UPI. Here’s a better one at PhysOrg: Beating the heat in the living wings of butterflies. Hambo says:
Butterfly wings are made up of tiny scales. Don’t get your hopes up — I don’t know of any evolutionists saying they believed dinosaurs evolved into butterflies (not yet anyway)!
Hambo is a funny guy! After that great display of creationist humor he tells us:
At any rate, the scales are delicate structures, and the wings can quickly overheat or cool down too much — at least, they would if God hadn’t provided them exactly what they need to regulate the temperature of their gorgeous and colorful wings.
Ooooooooooooh! Butterflies have a have divinely provided method of temperature regulation. Hambo continues:
Scientists have discovered active cells underneath the scales on butterfly wings. These cells serve as a “network of mechanical and temperature sensors, as well as a supportive circulatory and tracheal system.” One researcher explains,
[Hambo quotes Nanfang Yu, associate professor of applied physics at Columbia Engineering:] Butterfly wings are essentially vector light-detecting panels by which butterflies can accurately determine the intensity and direction of sunlight, and do this swiftly without using their eyes.
Hambo is overwhelmed with awe and declares:
Butterfly wings are even more complex than we thought! Such an intricate and careful design reminds us that butterflies are not the result of random, chance processes over millions of years. [Link to something at AIG omitted.] They were created by God and bear his fingerprint.
No doubt about it! Hambo concludes with this:
They’re just another example of why mankind is “without excuse” for refusing to acknowledge the Creator — his existence is obvious from what he’s made (Romans 1:20).
You are without excuse, dear reader. Isn’t it time you embraced The Truth™?
