The caterpillar of the tropical butterfly Heliconius sara eats nothing but the leaves of the passion vines. Problem - these leaves contain cyanide packets along with enzyme packets so that when chewed and mixed together, deadly cyanide gas is released! The result for unwary, hungry insects – death!
However, H. sara caterpillars do not die. Why? Biologists found that when these caterpillars munched on the leaves, the caterpillars released a neutralizing enzyme that changed the cyanide into a harmless chemical. Evolutionists would have us believe that these caterpillars evolved the ability to neutralize the cyanide by accident and chance. Any insect that munched on the passion vine leaf without the neutralizing enzyme would face instant death. H. sara caterpillars had to have this special enzyme from the beginning! God, the greatest Chemist, designed this neutralizing ability from the start in order for the beautiful tropical butterfly Heliconius sara to exist.
