asSalaam ‘alaykum wa rahamtullah,
SUBHANALLAH!!! I actually saw this video about a year ago, and thought about putting it on my blog but totally forgot. But this has got to be the most amazing and interesting of creatures, that Allah has put upon this earth. The first time I saw this I had just finished a course in Evolutionary Biology. I was actually with a group of friends studying for the MCAT. And my first reaction after watching the video was a verbal outburst that came to me without any thought, and I said “Let evolution try to explain that!”. And I thought about what i had said and tried a little bit to look for an evolutionary explanation, I haven’t found one yet. But I was able to see that other’s have brought this example as a point of weakness for certain aspects of the theory of evolution. I keep saying SubhanAllah over and over and over again watching this video. And after this I think David Attenborough is one of my favorite show hosts/shows! May Allah Guide this man to Islam! When you get a chance try to watch this other videos online, insha’Allah. SubhanAllah! Allah’s Creation is so expansive and perfect. I can’t even begin to fathom the magnanimity of the number of species of living things on earth there are estimates around 14 million species in the world, and only about 2 million of them have been named. And the estimates I have read are even higher as to how many of them we have discovered. I remember reading in a textbook that it is very likely that we have only discovered about 5% of the species on earth. Can you Imagine that?? Well what I feel when I watch this video can not be put in word entirely, so just watch it! I just lock my eyes and drop my jaw every time!!!
SubhanAllah!!! Alhamdulillah!!! Wa Allahu Akbar!!!
