They're beautiful, but I have to ask about "the miracle of evolution." Are they really crediting God for creating these wonders?

Amen!

I believe it's from a POV where you're applying what's considered to be the normal laws of evolution.  The consensus seems to be that evolution happens so the species can survive.

Why would these birds have those long filaments...that open and flutter?   Simply to attract a female?


But they're beautiful.   Surprised nobody else has commented on them.

The word "miracle" usually is used in the context of attributing something to God. I found it interesting that evolutionists used it (although evolution is not necessarily inconsistent with the existence of a creator God).

In any event, thanks for posting the videos. They certainly are beautiful.
