A study of ants provides information on the evolution of social insects far from the forlorn claims of creationist that the theory of evolution is a theory in crisis, as this recent paper shows, other than citing magic (which by making anything possible, makes any claim meaningless and useless), evolution is the only way to make sense of the natural world.
