Wasp evolution or Creation?
The wasp has many unique features that display a creative design by and Intelligent Designer. Found on every continent except Antarctica, the wasp is an insect classified in the order Hymenoptera and suborder Apocrita. Known for their sting, wasps can sting multiple times. In addition, wasps make their nests from tree bark by chewing the bark and spitting it out, creating a rough, paper-like substance for use in making their nest. While most wasps die in the fall or autumn, a few queens survive and start a new colony in the spring season. The queen wasps live an average of one year (12 months) while the males and sterile females live only about a few weeks. Although many consider wasps to be a nuisance and a pest, wasps do some beneficial things, such as eating dead insects and flies. Wasps are also known to benefit farmers by eating crop-destroying bugs and therefore are beneficial in controlling the pest population. Wasps also benefit the environment by not allowing certain species to become dominant. Some wasps also help pollinate flowers and are known to eat flower nectar. The wasp sting can be annoying and be dangerous to those with an allergic reaction to the sting, which could require medical attention. Wasps are one of four major types of insect kinds to exist on Earth, with the others being beetles, flies, and moths. The wasp body is made up of three main parts: the head, the thorax, and the abdomen. The wasp outer skeleton is hard and strong and the wasp will eventually grow to about 20 millimeters in length. The wasp also has a strong jaw, six jointed legs, four wings, and two antennae. Scientists believe that wasps are related to the bees and ant families but have a difficult time explaining the origin of these kinds. Despite the thousands of species named in these insect families, there are only four major kinds of insects and these show much diversity over the last 6,000 years of variation. Creationists believe the many species named for these insects are just variations of the original kinds created during the Creation Week 6,000 years ago. Fossilized versions of these insects that are supposedly more than 100 million years old, look remarkably similar to modern versions and any variation would be because of damage from the fossilization process or from variation over the last 4,300 years since the Flood when these insects were fossilized. Fossils of the fig wasp "dated" to 34 million years ago appear to be virtually identical to modern versions. If evolution occurs, how is the fig wasp virtually identical in 34 million years? That is, if this age is feasible. Evolutionists can claim that the wasp is related to the ant, but how did the wasp gain its wings or how did the ant lose its wings? Wasps would be most similar to the bees, but what is the origin of either of these? How did the stinging insects gain their stinging ability? All things point toward a special creation during Creation Week 6,000 years ago where all life appeared suddenly and much of it was buried in the rock layers produced by the Genesis Flood 4,300 to 4.500 years ago.
