In my search to understand the insects I hate the most* I'm starting to think telelogically. "What is the purpose of x Creature?" instead of, "What ecological function does it perform?" For instance, the cockroach family, cockroaches and termites help to break down dead vegetation so that it can work as compost for developing and future vegetation. It fills a niche market. I've started to apply that damned philosophy, if something exists it has a purpose. But purpose implies creation. Creationism denies Evolution. And "Magic Sky Daddy" isn't the best possible argument. My head hurts. *Cockroaches, Flies, Mosquitoes, ticks, fleas.
