31、动物本能

动物本能——上帝智慧的显现。

Animals’ instincts—revelation of the wisdom of the Greatest Creator

公鸡打鸣、蜜蜂营巢、小鸡破壳、候鸟迁徙并不是这些动物自身有多么高深的智慧或善于学习、善于总结经验,它们的本能是造就它们的上帝智慧的显现。

That roosters can crow, bees can build honeycombs, chicks can break egg shells, and migratory birds can migrate doest not mean that these animals possess very great wisdom or are good at learning and summarizing experiences. Their instincts are the revelation of the Greatest Creator that has created them.

除以上有关本能的例子外,还有:白蚁会建造带“空调”的窝;许多鱼类会放电,一种美洲电鳗能释放出电压高达880多伏的电;萤火虫能制造光;蜻蜓会直线起升或在空中定点飞行;龟会把卵产在温热的沙中进行孵化;变色龙为了保护自己,可以随时变换身体的颜色;蝙蝠能在漆黑的夜晚靠声纳找食吃;软体动物如蜗牛知道做一个坚硬的“家”保护自己;再看鸟类筑巢的技巧,特别是非洲的一种纺织鸟,能选择柔韧的枝条,利用小树枝和草筑造出一个令蛇“望洋兴叹”,雨水又进不去的“公寓”;蚕吐丝;蜘蛛结网;信鸽找巢;军蚁有组织、有计划的集体出动;蠕虫身体被切掉一部分仍能复原;军犬的嗅觉,等等,等等全是动物的本能的体现,而它们的本能不是什么千万年进化的结果,而是一出现在地球上时就具有的。

Besides the above examples of instincts, there are many other instances. Termites can build air-conditioned nests; many fishes can discharge electricity, an American eel can discharge electricity of 880 volts; fireflies can produce light, dragonflies can rise vertically or make designed fly in the air. Turtles can lay their eggs in the warm sand for them to hatch, to protect themselves; chameleons can change the colors of their bodies at will, and bats can locate food via sonar in pitch darkness. Mollusks like snails have a tough “home” to protect themselves. Now let’s have a look at the birds’ skill in nest building. An African weaver bird, in particular, can select soft twigs and grass to build an “apartment” that holds snakes at bay and keeps water from leaking in. Silkworms can spin silk, spiders can weave webs, and homing pigeons can locate their own nests. The ants are capable of well-organized and well-planned collective activities. Worms can restore itself if one part of their bodies are cut off. The military dogs have extremely sensitive olfactions. All these are the embodiment of animals’ instincts, which are not results of millions of years of evolution but have existed the very moment the animals appear on the earth.

如果把动物的本能归结为动物自身的智慧和聪明才智,而不去寻找它们背后的创造者,这就象我们看到飞机在天上飞,然后说这架飞机真有智慧、真聪明,而忽视飞机制造者的智慧和聪明才智一样。

If we attribute the instincts of animals to the wisdom and talents of animals without looking for their creator behind them, then it is as if we are seeing planes flying in the sky and marvel at the wisdom and cleverness of the plane neglecting the wisdom and talents of the manufacturer of the plane.

我们为什么不说闹钟准时行走和报时是闹钟自身的智慧呢?我们为什么不说感应式导弹有智慧呢?我们为什么不说能在几微秒的瞬间搜索出百万个相关信息的电脑有智慧、聪明绝顶呢?为什么不说机器人、收音机、电视机、摄象机等聪明呢?

Why don’t we say that alarm clocks are wise and clever in keeping good time and giving correct time? Why don’t we say that inductive missiles possess wisdom? Why don’t we say that the computers are incomparably wise and intelligent while they can search millions of pieces related information in a few microseconds? Why don’t we say that robots, radios, televisions, and video cameras are clever and smart?

因为我们知道,它们本身不具备智慧和才干,它们的智慧和聪明才智完全是它们背后的制造者智慧和聪明才智的显现。

Because we know that they don’t possess wisdom and talents themselves but only reflect the wisdom and talents of their creators behind them.

那么,我们为什么不把动植物体现出来的本能归功于制造它们的上帝呢?

Then why don’t we attribute the instincts of animals and plants to the Greatest Creator that makes them?

全世界上千万的科学家们在绞尽脑汁,花费大量的人力和财力在研究和探索动植物的智慧和聪明才智,找到了根源了吗?我可以明确地说,如果我们不透过现象去探索现象背后的力量,我们就象只看到水中的月亮,而看不到天空的月亮一样,即使再给我们十万年的时光,我们仍然会茫然无知。

Millions of scientists all over the world are racking their brains and investing a huge amount of manpower and money to explore the talent and wisdom of animals and plants. Have they found the root of the question? I can say for sure that if we don’t look through the phenomena and investigate the power behind them, we will be seeing only the moon reflected in the water instead of seeing the real one hanging in the sky, and we will remain completely ignorant even if we are given another hundred thousands of years.

狗看到一个机器人在工作,一定会认为这个机器人头脑发达、智慧莫测高深,其原因是狗不知道这个机器人是人类创造的。那么,我们看到纺织鸟在枝头筑巢为什么总会认为是纺织鸟头脑发达、聪明呢?我们的思维与狗的思维有何区别呢?

When seeing a robot at work, a dog may think that the robot must be extremely intelligent and wise. The reason is that the dog does not know that the robot is made by man. Then why do we think that the weaver bird is unfathomably clever when seeing it build nests on a branch? Are we different from dogs in thinking?
