Ant Brains and Human Evolution

Except for entomologists, I reckon that most people dislike ants. Especially carpenter ants, hammering and running power tools in the walls at all hours of the night. You certainly do not want to pitch your tent over an anthill. But God did not consult anyone when he made them an important part of the ecosystem.

They aerate soil, clean up dead things, disperse seeds, are predatory to pests, and are mighty tasty to other critters. We cannot live without them. Darwinists decided to study their brains to determine human brain evolution.

Somehow it makes sense to fundamentalist evolutionists to study ant brains to learn about ours. Circular reasoning and presuppositions abound.

Ants have about 250,000 neurons in their 600 μm (micrometer) brains, and humans have somewhere around 100 billion neurons in our brains. Sure, the comparison is just screaming to be made. Makes perfect sense. Actually, it does make sense to fundamentalist evolutionists in some strange way because we all supposedly evolved from a common ancestor. These jaspers presuppose evolution (no matter how ludicrous they sound) to prove it. In reality, we were created in God's image. Ants were not. This isn't rocket surgery.
The book of Proverbs states, “Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise” (6:6). Evolutionists went to the ant, not to learn of her God-given ability to gather and store provisions, but to vainly attempt to determine human brain evolution. Human brain size has decreased since 3,000 years ago and is a mystery to anthropologists.

. . .

Because ants—like people—have been created with complex societal interactions and because evolutionists have no recourse but to embrace evolutionism, they must make the best of a terrible theory and somehow make a tenuous connection between human and ant brains and their behavior.
