If our all-powerful God created everything, we should find the evidence for design wherever we look, don’t you think?
What Exactly Is Pollination?
At this time of year, pollination of flowers is taking place. The pollen from one flower must reach the pistil of another flower for a fruit to develop. This is largely accomplished by insects, especially honeybees.
As the bee goes after the nectar, its fuzzy body rubs against the stamen laden with pollen. When the bee flies to another flower, the pollen is rubbed onto its stamen, pollinating it.
Are Honey Bees Disappearing?
Florida’s $45 million apple crop—the fourth largest in the country—is completely dependent on insects for pollination, and 90 percent of that pollination comes from honey bees.* Thus, you can understand why beekeepers are alarmed by the recent disappearance of vast numbers of bees from their hives across the country (called colony collapse disorder). Without these little insects, we simply won’t have $14 billion in agriculture we count on this year.
What Is The Big Problem with Evolution?
Yet evolutionists affirm that plants evolved millions of years before insects. That would mean that the plants that now rely on insects for their reproduction would not have survived a second generation. It’s much easier to believe all was made by God in six days, isn’t it?
