A question is whether such mechanisms exist in more ancient brain regions of other animals. A new study has identified a self-location mechanism in zebrafish.
Of course, ants and other animals do not make decisions in a “conscious” manner as humans would. Instead they rely on algorithms.
These elements of harvester ant behavior present a severe challenge for the evolutionary paradigm.
Some discriminators don’t get us very far in deciding which is the better explanation between blind evolution and intelligent design.
Spiders are another of nature’s master engineers. About half of known spider species (order Araneae) construct webs made of silk.
