Insects and evolution
I always wonder about the insects I see around my back yard. Of course there are the normal ones like jumping spiders and grasshoppers. But then there are some that look like they never existed until today. Many I have not seen of course are already listed species. However, I sometimes feel like some insects I see are new on the seen. It makes me wonder how many new species, families, or even orders of insects have evolved and we never noticed.

RE: Insects and evolution
I once say a spider in my car I could never identify. It was tiny, it had white horizontal lines on its legs and was black and red.

I tried looking for it online, but could never figure out what it was. Maybe I will never know.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

RE: Insects and evolution
I went hiking through the Wichita mountains here in Oklahoma with my fiance'. We'll always find some strange bugs and can identify most of them. We found a colorful orange flowering plant, took pictures of it, submitted it to experts to determine what it was. We had no response, looked and looked through field guides online and some reference books we had.

I'll be damned if I know what it was!Consider

Amazing the variety of species you encounter on a simple hike.

It makes me wonder if creationist should look at insects more often. If they see a newly evolved family or worst order they would freak out.

Spiders aren't insects...

Just FYI

You think I don't know that? I bought them up by accident though.

Of course they aren't, insects only have four legs (Leviticus 11:20)

It is verses like this that make being non-christian easier.
