Spiders’ Special Silk

Mar 5, 2021 | Blog | 0 comments

Did you know that spiders are capable of producing one of the finest filament strands known to man? These threads can be 10,000 times thinner than a strand of human hair, yet are five times stronger than an equivalent weight of a steel cable.

Scientists have yet to learn how a spider keeps from clogging its spinnerets, as the emerging silk immediately solidifies upon exposure to oxygen. How could some “pre-spider” have just happened upon the correct formula for producing silk, and at the same time evolved the equipment for dispensing it?

The complexity of this amazing silk production has been designed by an amazing God.
