Bats using what the engineers and mathematicians call "fuzzy logic" millions of years before we dicovered it.

bats are wonderful creatures! look up bat conservation international ~

of great concern to me was the sidebar story about the marburg virus. scientists have discovered that the virus harbor is bats, specifically the egyptian fruit bat. now they are honing in on the harbor of the ebola virus, closely related to marburg. bats and miners and tourists share caves ~ is there now going to be a campaign to rid the caves of bats? ~

Definitely an interesting article. I think that bats are beautiful, and people need to get over the horror stories about them so that everyone can appreciate them for the wonderful creatures they are.

Thanks Nancy, I love all BATS. Without them eating millions of insects for us every night all over the world Mankind could not live on this planet. Isn't every creature God made, down to the smallest microcrobes that protect our bodies Wonderous?
