FOOD CHAIN

Humans are the most vicious predators and murderers of life forms in the history of Earth.  The “food chain” is a poor excuse to justify the premeditated slaughter of other sentient beings.  What is your opinion of another life form that will kill and eat your dead body? Criminal? Cannibal? Carnivore?

The fact is that you really don’t need to eat dead animal bodies to live.  The largest, longest-lived and strongest animals on Earth are all vegetarians.

AMAZING MOTHS!

A MOTH is an insect related to the butterfly, both being of the order Lepidoptera. Most of this order are moths; there are thought to be approximately 160,000 species of moth (nearly ten times the number of species of butterfly), with thousands of species yet to be described. Most species of moth are nocturnal. The variety, color, shapes and sizes of moths is truly incredible!

100 MILLION SPECIES

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Mankind is only one SPECIES of life on Earth.  According the leading “scientific authorities”:  ...the “estimated total number of species on Earth is 6.5 million species found on land, and 2.2 million (about 25 percent of the total) dwelling in the ocean depths.  However, a study, published by PLoS Biology, says a staggering 86% of all species on land and 91% of those in the seas have yet to be discovered, described and cataloged.”  

If we do the math, we learn that 8.7 million is roughly 80% – 90% of ONE HUNDRED MILLION species on this planet.  That’s a LOT of life!  How many even MORE bizarre life forms are as yet undiscovered?  And how many more might there be living throughout the rest of our own galaxy?  (I won’t mention the whole universe….).  

Many more imagined creatures are described in science fiction stories on other planets and galaxies.  But, very few of these fictional “monstrosities” are as strange and bizarre at the real creatures that inhabit the microcosm on our own planet.  Here are pictures of a few common insects viewed with the aid of an electron microscope.  It is a challenge to imagine creatures more bizarre than these!
