    OK, I took a half day off, so one more that is in bloom today. This one is crazy. It tricks pollinators to enter the flower by a scent that promises food, but it doesn't actually provide any food. Like the proverb about clouds in the sky but no rain. The bugs must be really disappointed, and to make it more humiliating the little teeth make it hard for the pollinator but to crawl back out again, further providing opportunities for pollination. I'd love to see Waltke or any of the other so called Reformed folk who believe in the half-witted theory of evolution to explain this plant. As if they could :doh:

    Silly boy, it obviously evolved from a leopard!!!!

    It's enough to give an evolutionist a hernia and make a creationist laugh so hard he/she'd need staples!

    Tim, don't you know that irrelevant features just hang on doing nothing but developing until magically they all coalesce and evolution's grand non-design is exhibited?

    Lying about food? That's just wrong brother. For this reason, I cannot wholeheartedly endorse this flower.

    Before the Fall it gave ambrosia freely to all.
