Visionary biomimicry: Five insects inspiring cutting-edge technology

quote:
Biomimicry is a smart way to solve tough problems. Why go to the trouble of thinking up a whole new solution when you can see how living creatures have done it first, using approaches refined over millions of years of evolution?

    *Bees: colour accuracy
    *Jumping spiders: distance perception (not insects, but cool none the less)
    *Flies: field of vision
    *Moths: anti-reflection
    *Dragonflies: visual tracking

These are interesting applications utilizing products of evolution.

Very interesting abilities these creatures have, that do suggest technological uses, but despite the assertion that these are the product of evolution there's simply no reason to think so. Created design is quite sufficient to explain it all.

Created design explains nothing if it can't explain the creator.

Bullshit! There is no such thing as creative design explanations. You all keep claiming there is, but that's all you ever do; claim you have an explanation but we never hear it. Empty BS claims are all you have.

Nevertheless all you have is the assertion that evolution did it, no evidence. Creation is the known alternative and it works just fine.

Faith continues to post lies.

That is simply another example of Faith posting lies. There is NO evidence of any creator and "Creation" explains nothing.

And that is simply another example of you posting lies. There is evidence of evolution.
