Natures wonders: ant care for the sick protects well ants (Introduction)

DAVID’s comment: Automatically producing a perfume to say I'm sick certainly protects the colony and must have been developed as ants developed social colonies. This is an automatic designed protection as part of an immune response.

dhw: I really don’t know why you go on and on inserting the word “automatic”, as if your use of it somehow proved that ants are not intelligent, and when they first came up with this form of protection, they didn’t know what they were doing. If they didn’t design it, then presumably you think your God did. So there we go again: your God designs diseases (unless he is not in control) and then designs protection against the diseases he has designed so that life can go on so that eventually he can produce the brain of Homo sapiens. (You have not yet come up with any other “secondary” purpose). There is no coherence in such a scenario.

Not being able to see the coherence is why you are agnostic. My God knows what He is doing.
