Can a Bee fly?
Favorited (undo) 20 Comments

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.

Why is this and does the flying of a bee prove that god doesnt exist?

Here is how you can test your hypothesis.
---------------------------------
1. Jump off of a building.

2. Flap your wings.

3. See if God gives a shit or not.

Your initial premise is wrong. Some not-very-good engineer made the statement years ago and it became famous, but it's actually nonsense based on misunderstanding of physics.

Fact! Bees can't really fly. Never have nor never will. It is perhaps the greatest conspiracy ever spread. We have been brainwashed into believing they fly, so we have come to accept it as fact.
We really should be concentrating our attention to the ground on which we walk becaused if one really takes notice, you will see million of bees walking around and if you don't look where you walk you will perhaps be accidently squashing them.

Reality is that bees and comparable insects fly in an incredibly complex way that utilises, get this, mini hurricanes! We’ll link all this stuff at the bottom in the references if you’re interesting in the nitty gritty physics, but in lay terms, bees fly by rotating their wings, which creates pockets of low air pressure, which in turn create small eddies above the bee’s wing which lift it into the air and, thus, grant it the ability to fly.

To find this out, scientists have conducted a variety of tests using bees, the most awesome one being by Chinese scientist, Lijang Zeng and his team, who devised system comprised of lasers and tiny mirrors glued to bees back in 2001. This experiment was deemed superior to previous tests, as it didn’t need to use tethered bees (which fly differently) and because it contained lasers, which is of course super cool. We’re fairly certain that a laboratory full of Asian scientists firing tiny laser beams at bees covered in shiny body armour is going to be the next big Syfy channel hit, so remember that you heard about it here first.

In fact, the way bees and other comparable creatures fly is so efficient and causes so little drag, that research into the subject has been backed by various militaries in an attempt to mimic this method of flight with our own tiny insect-like robots, which is just a recipe for another Syfy hit.

So, around 80 years ago a scientists or mathematician of some sort made a rough, mistake filled calculation that claimed bees couldn’t fly. Fast forward almost a century and scientists today are still trying to erase that mistake from the public consciousness with increasingly complex experiments to prove the simple fact that bumblebees can, in fact, fly, and that this doesn’t violate any of our understanding of the laws of physics.

I appreciate the information but you havent answered my question. does the fact that a bee flies prove there is no god?

Dear OP, if you would read my previous comment you would know that the fact that a bee files proves that there is actually a God who is also a great artist.

No, your question, as clearly stated in the title, was "can a bee fly?". The rest is just fluff.

@: Couman
That was one question, the other was if there is a proof of the existence or lack of a god

God's quantum. If you think it's there, it's there.

This is a really confusing question that I fail to understand. So yeah, bees do fly and have nothing to prove whether god exist or not.

The real question is, "Do ducks swim, is the Pope a catholic, do fish fuck in water, are tortoises able to gallop?"...so many questions, so little answers! what to do, oh what to do?
