So not stings, but buzz! Would you believe it? You would, you are a darwinist.

What on earth makes you think that the toads associating the buzz with noxiousness is a problem for Darwinists?

What in the theory of evolution does this contradict?

How would a sting being a secondary source of noxiousness make Darwinists be "lost"?

Any advantageous characteristic would be selected for, both in the stinging organism and a mimic.
