Functioning ‘Mechanical Gears’ seen in Nature for the First Time

A must read..



There was an article entitled Functioning ‘Mechanical Gears’ seen in Nature for the First Time’. It began as follows:

This image shows cog wheels connecting the hind legs of the plant hopper, a plant-hopping insect found in gardens across Europe – has hind-leg joints with curved cog-like strips of opposing ‘teeth’ that intermesh, rotating like mechanical gears to synchronise the animal’s legs when it launches into a jump.

The finding demonstrates that gear mechanisms previously thought to be solely man-made have an evolutionary precedent. Scientists say this is the “first observation of mechanical gearing in a biological structure“.

Through a combination of anatomical analysis and high-speed video capture of normal Issus movements, scientists from the University of Cambridge have been able to reveal these functioning natural gears for the first time. The findings are reported in the latest issue of the journal Science…” CONTINUED >

  1. We are, more and more, presented with irrefutable evidence that inclines us to accept that we exist in a biological construct created solely that we might be educationally exposed to the truth about ourselves and ultimately about our Creator.


  2. If it looks manufactured, it’s very likely to be. Those cogs look like they’ve come from a factory. A unique kind of factory, but irrefutably a factory.
