FYI This beetle is used extensively in support of creationism: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKM9yoQ3Wug&feature=related

You can also see the mechanics of his defense mechanism in the video.

I wonder if the beetle enjoys it every time it has to spray that toxic shit on its face first before it hits anything else.

Animals are immune to the effects generated by their own chemical related defense mechanisms.

Why does this have to turn into a creationism vs. evolution? I thought this argument was invalid on both parts... The old testament isn't supposed to be taken literally, and evolution can't explain everything. I thought the two were understood to run parallel?

@17 Creationism can't be proved wrong, your are supposing their beliefs are based on facts. They invent lies to support their beliefs, and when disproven, they make new lies in their place. They made a list of 10 'Facts' which scientists can't prove that evolution was the agent in the development, and they were all proved to be caused due to evolution. Creationists look for questions which haven't been answered yet. Their main logic is based on Argumentum Ad Ignorantiam.
