Today’s most sophisticated GPS systems can’t compare to the mental maps that even the lowliest creatures use! This is the Creation Moments Minute.
Mental maps help make possible intelligent activity, such as finding our way around and conducting an intelligent search. This is why scientists have been surprised to find that many creatures, not just humans, use mental maps.
Bees, for instance, use them. Even if a bee is forced to detour on its way back to the hive, it always reports the food source as though it had used a direct route. Researchers have found that ants and chimps use them too.
Mental maps help humans and animals think deductively about changes in the environment. Mental mapping ability could not have evolved because even the lowliest creature requires this ability to survive. This ability must have been given to them in the first place by their Creator.
