Amazing. Makes it hard to believe that random mutations and natural selection could cause this.

I believe that natural selection could cause this. It's the random part of the mutation I have a problem with.

I too have a problem with mutations that lead to something like this just being random.

I could easily see, however, theistic evolution causing this. Start with a beetle with one protrusion, being able to jump straight. Successive generations given more and more teeth in the gear, until you find the ideal number of gears.


Sounds a lot like my own test driven development.
