Termite Hyper Design

Hi Folks, Here’s an update to our Episode 3c on Termites that you will find very interesting!

The video (shown below) is actually a very nice example of design with respect to termites (all the silly cladistics and other so-called explanations aside). Anoxic microbes living happily inside the gut of a termite that not only lives in an oxygenated environment itself, but which also provides an nicely designed anoxic environment through internal processes that metabolize the oxygen which otherwise would kill the very microbes the termite needs to survive in its gut! Moreover, termites are hatched WITHOUT these microbes, and they only get them when they are fed to them by other termites – PLUS THESE MICROBES EXIST NOWHERE ELSE ON EARTH! So how did the original anoxic microbes get into the original termites?? No explanation of how these anoxic microbes somehow crawled across oxygenated areas to finally get established inside the termite can be given. Great design example!
