God’s Incredible Intelligence: The Bombardier Beetle

(View segment from :08 to 4:16)
How does a Bombardier beetle protect itself?

  • It fires explosive chemicals out of its tail onto its enemies.

Does it make sense that the beetle learned how to do this over time?

  • Nope! Explosions are deadly. So, these beetles would have killed themselves before ever figuring out the right chemicals, the right mixture of them, and the right process to create a safe but effective explosion.
  • This tiny creature is a masterpiece of engineering, and its explosive abilities are quite complex.
