Darwinists who want to make a strong case for evolution will routinely avoid certain biological topics—chiefly because those topics resist all gradualist explanations. One is the unique and complex method by which insects grow.
Metamorphosis (from Greek words meaning ‘change of form’), describes how most insects change from juveniles to adults, often developing adult body structures and ways of life completely different from those of their youth. While the juvenile of a particular species may look like a glorified worm, the adult might have five-centimetre (2-inch) wings and no functioning jaws. Let’s examine the life of a moth.
