INTRODUCTION

The living beings that have the densest population in the world are the ants. For every seven hundred million ants that come into this world there are only 40 new-born human beings. The ants, one of the most “social” groups among the insect genus, live as societies called “colonies”, which are extremely well “organized.” The ants care for their offsprings, protect their colonies and fight as they produce and store their food. There are even colonies that do “tailoring”, that deal in “agriculture” or “animal husbandry”. These animals, with their very strong communication network, are so superior as not to be compared to any other organism, with respect to social organization and specialization. Then how can these minute creatures form such an order? This is a question for which an answer must certainly be sought.

According to evolutionists, ants evolved 80 million years ago from “Tiphiidae”, which is an archaic genus of wasps, and that they started socializing 40 million years ago suddenly, “at their own discretion” – and that they constitute the highest level of the evolution of insects. However, they do not in any way explain the causes and the process of development of this socialization. The basic mechanism of evolution requires living beings to fight with each other to the end, for their survival. Therefore, each genus and every individual within that genus can think of only itself and its own offspring (Why and how it started thinking of its offspring is another dead end for Evolution, but we are skipping this point for now). It is, of course, unanswered how this type of a “law of evolution” can form a social system with sacrifice right at its core.

All insects spend most of their time in looking for food. They find and they eat food, then they get hungry again and go off to find more food. They also run from danger. When we accept evolution, we also have to accept that the ants too lived “individually” once upon a time, but that one day, millions of years ago, they decided to become socialized. The question then arises as to how they “decided” “to form” this social order without any common communication between themselves, because, according to evolution, communication is a consequence of socializing. Furthermore, the question of how they have developed the genetic mutation required for this socialization has no scientific explanation whatsoever.

The questions to be answered are not limited to these. Could these creatures whose nerve cells for one million of them only weigh 20 grams, have adopted the resolution to socialize in groups “just like that”? Or could they have got together to set the rules for this socializing after adopting such a resolution? Even if we accept that they could, would all of them obey this new system without exception? Have they formed an advanced social order by founding colonies with millions of members after overcoming all these seeming impossibilities?

Then how did a “caste system” emerge out of this struggle? First, this question has to be answered: How has the difference between the queen and the worker developed? Evolutionists at this point will say that a group among the workers abandoned working and developed a physiology different from the worker ants by going through genetic variations over a long period of time. However, we are then faced with the question of how the said “would be queens” were nourished throughout this transformation period. The queen ants do not look for food. They are fed with food brought by the workers. Some workers may have seen themselves as “queens”, so how and why have other workers accepted this hierarchy? Furthermore, why have they consented to feed this queen? The “struggle for life” that they are in, according to “evolution”, requires that they only think of themselves.

SOCIAL LIFE

Ants live in colonies and a perfect division of labour exists amongst them. When we take a closer look at their systems, we shall also see that they have a pretty interesting social structure. It will also come to our attention that they are capable of sacrifice at a much higher level than humans are. Many scientists, who for years have been doing extensive research
