The Insect With Two Brains

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we meet an insect with two brains!

Did you know that a moth needs an entirely different kind of brain than a caterpillar?

In the caterpillar stage, the moth lumbers around in a body that is primarily designed for eating. Its brain must be able to command powerful jaws and a comparatively huge digestive system as well as the complexities of caterpillar locomotion.

During metamorphosis the caterpillar completely dissolves and the moth is rebuilt from the liquid. The result is a brain that is 10 times the size of the caterpillar’s and ready to control flight.

Only our almighty Creator could completely rebuild a caterpillar into a moth. Even more amazing is how He remakes people. Through the forgiveness of sins, Jesus Christ turns us from people who wish to escape Him to new creatures who love Him and find joy in Him.
