Who is the highly intelligent designer that formed this creature ?


  • The same one who created you and all we see from and on this planet. As said a wonderful design has to have a designer. Pity is a lot is being spoilt by man. The higher intelligence?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I've never quite worked out why some people have a downer on spiders. If it were not for these eight-legged creatures then (a) there would be another animal to fill the niche (b) if not, then we'd be permanently ankle deep in six-legged creatures.

    The last time I looked, house spiders didn't weave an orb. Orb web spider, garden spider certainly. House spider? Nah. Their web is a messy affair.

    I've learnt to live with spiders, I'm not quite at the stage were I'd pick up a daddy long legs if it walked across the lounge floor, but no longer jump up and leave the outline of the human shape in an unopened door as I head for freedom, screamingimage.   

  • I used to hate spiders until I started gardening, don't like them in the house but put them outside.  I have the zebra spiders in the house, do make me feel cold as they jump but put them outside when I can catch them.  They don't do any harm, but think it is because they jump that people don't like them.  I hate daddy long legs, I'm afraid I woop them as they make my skin crawl, have had a load of small ones coming indoors at night at the moment.
