“Small charges carried by individual insects can add up, a study finds, with larger swarms generating substantial electrical fields.”
Evidence doesn’t seem to matter much.
This fascinating research presents yet another remarkable example of biochemical complexity with a functionality dependent upon environmental sensing, signal evaluation, operational feedback, managing stored resources, and survivability–all within a supposedly inert “spore.” I’ll call that evidence of intelligent design.
“…the game is over for Darwinian evolutionary theory: an unguided evolutionary explanation for what Behe calls irreducibly complex structures, including ATP synthase, will not be found.”
University of Colorado at Boulder: “This research overturns decades of thought on what factors shape venom gene evolution and venom variation, and sheds new light on why developing effective antivenom treatments for snakebites remains so challenging.”
Unfortunately for Darwinists, irreducible complexity raises real doubts about Darwinism in people’s minds. Rising to the challenge, Darwinists are doing what must be done to control the damage.

Anderson: “The deeply held assumption of nearly all evolutionists is that evolution can do everything. After all, we’re here aren’t we! So there is little point in even asking the question.” Actually, in religious circles, if anyone treated their sect’s creed the way Darwinians have treated evolution, they would be regarded as a cult.
Show notes: how the latest discoveries reconfirm that Irreducible Complexity marks the death of the explanatory power of the Darwinian mechanism and other non-guided naturalistic mechanisms of the extended evolutionary modern synthesis.
John and Sandy Palmer: Part 2 applies the core concepts of irreducible complexity and functional coherence to one of the most important functions in each cell – energy production.
At Nature: “I was so overwhelmed by the beauty and the complexity that in the evenings I would just watch them like I would watch a documentary,” recalls Kukulski, a biochemist at the University of Bern, Switzerland.” No wonder panpsychism is catching on, among those who are forbidden to think in terms of design.
Schulz: This third paper (Part 3) concludes the three-part study with original observations. The observations include an ontology of the exceedingly specific protein binding relationships in the flagellum. … Finally, it is suggested that a motility organelle of this scope and scale seems profoundly unlikely to naturally evolve in the absence of foresight and mindful intent.
A mathematician who uses statistical methods to model the fine tuning of molecular machines and systems in cells reflects…
The flagellum is a good example of what doesn’t work in purely naturalist explanations. None of it happened by chance unless you think masses of information can just suddenly pop into existence by chance. Wouldn’t that be magic? Miracle?
Of course, Darwinism is dead. It is the Darwin profs and the institutional structure that supports them who are very much alive.
