Racing Cockroaches (Part 2 of 2)

If you’ve ever seen how fast a cockroach can skitter across the floor, find out how they accomplish this on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

 

On yesterday’s program, we saw some amazing ways that bugs manage to get around. Did you know that many insects can change their method of locomotion to adapt to different situations? High-speed photography has shown that startled cockroaches race off by standing and running on their two hind legs. In this position they can reach speeds of over three miles per hour!

Because scientists find the wisdom of good design in nature, they search to see how nature has solved the engineering problems they face. However, if everything was truly the accidental consequence of chance, wouldn’t scientists be studying accidents to find solutions to their problems? Though they may be embarrassed to admit it, scientists who look to nature are recognizing the wisdom of the Creator!
