Fast Bees or Fast Talking?
According to the Bible, God created the land-living insects, and that would include the bees, on day six of creation. This was just three days after He created the flowering plants. According to evolution, bees evolved from a simpler insect after the pollen-bearing plants had developed. The specialized bee and its complex social structure was thought to have taken a long time to evolve.
Creationists, who believe the time line of events laid out in Scripture and reject inflated evolutionary years, were not surprised when a bee was found preserved in amber which was many millions of years older than the oldest known bee. The almost perfectly preserved bee is like modern bees, and can even be identified as a worker. Not only does this show that bees, with all their superb specializations, were around much earlier than ever thought by evolutionists, it also shows that they were around for some time before this specimen lived. In fact, the evolutionist who reported the findings admitted that there is a real problem explaining how bees could have developed nearly at the same time as pollen-bearing plants.
As creationists, we have no such problem. Bees were created, fully formed, only a few days after pollen bearing plants, by our Creator. Science has shown us once again that the biblical history makes more sense than the evolutionary story of history.
