    I like watching ants with their herds on our plants in summer…

    Key difference between milking cows and herding aphids: ants don't chop off the heads of their aphids and grind their body parts into meat pies!

    You've probably seen in kids' movies they have something about a bee still being in the bunch of flowers when the magician does his trick. Would that be possible, speaking that the bee could fly out at any moment, not just when the magician is doing his trick? I'm not sure that's actually realistic. Yet again, I saw that in a children's movie several years ago.

    How do ants make all of that? who taught them? DO you really thing the interaction of some atoms makes this? NO. Someone taught them this just like everything else, like bees ans other animals that seem to have some prior knowledge about what to do. The one who taught them was Allah, everything's god. Allah says in Quran:
    'He (Pharaoh) said: 'Moses, who is the Lord of you both? ' * 'Our Lord, ' he replied, 'is He Who gave everything its creation and then guided it. ' 'He (Pharaoh) asked: 'How was it then, with the former generations? '' He (Moses) answered: 'The knowledge of them is in a Book with My Lord. My Lord neither goes astray, nor forgets.

    It's cool to see that social species work alike. I'm proud we evolved to be one, or else we would be like dragons: Wise but lonely.
