Design in Early Fruit Fly Development

A while ago, we had a short article on fruit flies, how they defy evolution and affirm creation. My wife detests the things. I have a slightly higher tolerance, but get a mite cranky when they try to fly up my nose. They are tiny, so pictures need to be magnified. Those of us who want to avoid fruit flies can avoid bringing fruit home, but they are attracted to other things as well. Because they eat decaying material, they are considered beneficial. Want to just wait until they die off? Sure, they live less than two months. But boy do they breed! So, it's not so easy.

Enough about the annoyance part. Now that scientists have the equipment to see tiny things, and are learning more about proteins and mRNAs, we can see that they testify to the genius of the Master Engineer. There is no logical place for evolutionary ideas in the life cycle of the lil' ol' fruit fly. I have to warn you about something. The following article is made available here, and was written for people with a strong science background, not us reg'lar folk. The author his his doctorate in biochemistry.
While design may be seen in all living creatures as well as many nonliving objects, the early development of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, clearly shows that the making of a “simple” fruit fly exhibits forethought. The Lord had to predetermine where the head (rostral or anterior), the tail (caudal or posterior), the back (dorsal) and belly (ventral), all the organs, and appendages would be in the finished product. In other words, God had to envision what the final product would look like before beginning construction, then bring together in the proper juxtaposition all the pieces necessary for construction.
