Looking at a Macrocilix maia moth, it’s impossible to ignore the scene painted on its wings – two flies feasting on some brown spots that could be mistaken for fresh bird droppings. It’s a pretty disgusting picture, and apparently we’re not the only ones who think so. Many of this moth’s predators tend to skip on insects feasting on bird droppings, associating them with potential disease, so the natural pattern acts as a defense mechanism for the otherwise helpless insect. And as if this visual representation of flies eating bird droppings wasn’t impressive enough, the moth reportedly also gives off a pungent odour that could be mistaken for actual bird droppings.

I know what you’re thinking – these photos must have been edited; and I don’t blame you, the flies look way too realistic to be real. The outline of their body is pretty accurate, especially the head, the brown splashes also appear to be real, and there’s even light reflecting off the bodies of the “flies”. How did the moths even develop this specific pattern, it’s not like they knew what would keep predators at bay, right?

The question you should be asking yourself is, could this be the result of random genetic mutations? Highly unlikely. Either some purposeful designer did it or some insects have the capacity to morph their bodies into beneficial shapes.This should rank among prehistoric instances of photography.

And some still say there is no God.

Or can any of you atheists link the paintwork to evolution.

Something like, "Millions of years ago a housefly got stuck on an ancient moth wing and blended into it's DNA ... blah blah blah... the sun then glued this painting on to the wings through ultra violet radiation... blah blah blah..."

Some academic chops think that because of their man-made academic prowess, they are the most intelligent things on earth and therefore if it does not fit their physical small brains, it does not exist. Reasoning about the big-bang as if this could not have been started by God, that evolution overrides creation as if the evolution itself was not designed and coded in the DNA of each organism. I have been waiting for these geniuses to tell us about the dead.. and whether when your body dies, you die too.. because there is nothing like a soul or a spirit in science...

The problem with you is equating acceptance of christianity to acceptance of God? Christianity is a fraud?

And because you have brought it, what is a soul? Soul is one of those meaningless nouns, means nothing. Basically, what you call soul is your brain, that reasoning part in you. When you die, the brain dies with you, so the so called soul dies

Upuss, the writer assumes that evolution is subjective to organisms, they can't choose evolution any more than human beings thinking they have free will.

Where have you seen me equating Christianity with God? The soul or spirit is my own understanding not what I have been told in the Bible, i knew this long before I read the Bible. That is your belief and that is what the so-called academic geniuses think and know it-alls too.. Have you died and determined this to be the fact? Death is a mystery and a realm that you cannot understand unless you know it from within yourself. Science is for the physical and not the untouchables and those things that have physical characteristics. Once you lose this, your small brain ends its reign...

It happened by accident?! By chance?

True I am an atheist to all world religions , that doesn't mean I deny a supreme being because I cannot prove such a being exists , I have my issues with evolution which religion obviously dosent answer and one of them is mimicry in nature ! like said moth, this seems like something way beyond random mutation even if you give it a couple of a million years to do so or the butterfly that has developed a growth that resembles a chameleons head to scare away rivals .


declaimer : if above rant seems incoherent blame it on the weed cookie coursing through the authors brain !
