Evolutionists Cannot Explain Carnivorous Plants

Bugs for lunch, what a marvelous idea! No, this is not about nutty leftist environmentalists, but rather, something that is in the environment: carnivorous plants. Although not envying their diets, creationists have been discussing pitcher plants and Venus fly traps for years.

Pitcher plants are slippery and flytraps snap shut, but there are several other kinds of these plants. While it is true that questions are raised about the existence of carnivorous plants in a very good creation, biblical creationists take on those challenges.

Evolutionists cannot give reasonable explanations for the origins of carnivorous plants, so they evosplain with excuses. These plants, such as the Venus flytrap, exhibit design.

Carnivory in the plant world is not explainable by evolutionary speculations. One way to evosplain them is to say that various types of these plants "evolved independently" multiple times, but that is sometimes annoying even to Darwin's disciples. In addition, there are disparate mechanisms in place in each kind of plant, each contributing to irreducible complexity: Every part must be in place and working at the same time or nothing works.
I recently read a paper from 2007 by two plant geneticists, Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig and Heinz-Albert Becker, from the Max-Planck-Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne, Germany. The paper forms part of a scholarly monograph, Handbook of Plant Science (Volume 2), published by Wiley. The paper presents a review of carnivorous plants, which, by employing “enormously different and ingenious trap mechanisms,” ensnare and digest insects. Around 500 species of plant are carnivorous, though it was hundreds of years before the general recognition of carnivory in plants.
