DAVID’S comment: Makes good organizational sense. Certainly doing it by instinct at this point. Originally guided by God?

dhw: Wonderful article! Thank you. I think ants probably hold the key to many aspects of evolution. Originally guided by God? My speculation would be originally guided by their own intelligence. God may come into it when we ask where their intelligence came from.

DAVID: The other issue is the origin of the different classes of ants to set up their societal arrangement. God again?

dhw: Amazing how your God creates all these variations when his prime purpose is to produce the brain of homo sapiens. I would suggest ant intelligence again. Different species and different classes of species work out their own social arrangements – a talent inherited by us humans.

Did the ants invent their own classes of societal level?
