No one knows how many insect species exist. There are millions. Many have never been described, but there are probably over one million insect species that have been described by scientists. In the U.S., over 91,000 species have been described but at least 73,000 additional insect species have not been described by scientists. The vastness and array of insects is amazing. Their beauty and detail attests clearly to a creator. Issues such as mimicry are not examples of adaption but of creation. How could an insect just happen to develop the ability to mimic bird poop or the eyes of an owl? God in his infinite creativity has made more bugs with more amazing features than our finite minds can fathom. He deserves all the glory for this!
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
- Romans 1:20 (The Bible)
"No 'fortuitous concourse of elements working blindly through any number of millions of years could quite account for why warblers are so beautiful. No mechanistic theory, even bolstered by mutations, has ever quite answered for the colors of the cerulean warbler, or the vespers of the woodthrush, or the swansong, or - goose music"
