Have you considered this marvel from biology?


The Sundew Plant traps insects with its long red hairs. The tips of these hairs emits a smell that entices insects to visit. Upon an insect’s arrival, it gets stuck to the thick fluid on one of the leaves. Then the leaf closes around the insect and is digested. By this hunting method, the sundew has gained the essential proteins it needs for life. That an odd way of hunting, the food has come to it! How did all these mechanisms – the exact smell for attraction, the sticky fluid on the leaf, the closing of the leaf and the right digestion chemicals – come about? If one was missing, no lunch for the plant! All had to be present from the start in order to work. Only the Master Designer could have set up this style of hunting right from the beginning.
