... but I would never call it beautiful. Or ugly, for that matter. The way I see it, science can be as beautiful as a cookbook can be tasteful.

I'm not dismissing science, just as I don't dismiss cookbooks. I like both and they are very useful, even essential sometimes, it's just that I think some people do not understand science well enough to see it in the proper perspective.

As to whether mosquitos have a refined sense of aesthetics, my point was not that they do but that, on close examination, evolution theory doesn't make much sense. It does seem to make sense on the surface, but when you start asking some serious questions, you soon realize the foundations are very weak.

I don't know about you, but I'm not particularly impressed by a theory that implies that bugs are attracted to the beauty of the flowers. But, who knows, maybe they do.
