You are looking at a microscopic image of the legs of an insect called a leafhopper. You would expect to find gears in a factory, or somewhere manmade, but in nature where scientists say life just evolved randomly? How did evolution “create” such a clever machine? It didn’t. It took a mind. A thinking living Creator. God!

These insects, which mainly hop around on European climbing ivy, are only a couple of millimeters in length, but with one mighty jump they can spring forward more than a meter at a velocity up to 3.9 meters per second (nearly nine miles per hour). As noted in Popular Mechanics, “In 2 milliseconds it has bulleted skyward, accelerating at nearly 400 g’s—a rate more than 20 times what a human body can withstand.”
