Nothing is quite so delicate as the dance of butterflies on the breeze, and, as new research suggests, nothing is quite so humbling to flight engineers.
After spending several years constructing a small and very calm flight tunnel, scientists at the University of Oxford have taken high-speed digital photographs of free-flying butterflies and the intricate, swirling patterns their wing beats make in wisps of smoke.
This is the first time that anyone has captured images that show what the wing beats of free-flying insects do to the air they flutter on. (Other visual studies have used tethered insects, moths, for example, glued to a lightweight rod.) The red admiral butterflies, moving without restraint, show an extraordinary agility and complexity in their flight. Not only do they use many different wing strokes, they use them on successive wing beats.
I suppose they don't know that the scriptures loudly proclaim: "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

This is no surprise if you know the Creator of these creatures. He made them by the word of His mouth according to their kinds to fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven and to creep upon the earth. This is justmore evidence that the foolishness of God is wiser than the widom of men. The real challenge for these scientists is to go on believing in "Evolution" when all the evidence shows us that this information was in them from the beginning, because the laws of physics tell us that information is never added by time and chance, but is only ever lost.
