A single acre of grassland can contain 2½ million spiders. 
    Spiders exhibit incredible diversity.
    Tarantulas moult (shed the hair, skin, horns, etc.) annually.
    How does the male tarantula know to push up the female's legs to expose her reproductive organs? God surely programmed this into them; as well as what to do once they are exposed.
    Bird eating spiders live up to 25 years, weigh up to 122 grams and have a leg span of 25 centimeters (1 centimeter is about the width of your finger). Jumping spiders (about 10% of the 40,000 species of spiders) have 360 degree vision thanks to 4 pairs of eyes, with independent movement of each eye. There are vast differences seen when one looks at the many types of spiders, yet they all subsist very well.
    Spiders, lobsters, crabs, scorpions millipedes, insects, etc. are all arthropods
    If the Araneomorphae species of spider was surviving very well with its set of two book lungs (a stack of thin sheets called lamellae that resemble the pages of a book, resulting in gas exchange between air and blood), why was there need (evolutionary speaking) for further development to four book lungs, with increased complexity, as evidenced in Mygalmorph spiders? If the Araneomorphae was quite fit to survive, and was indeed surviving, and does today, why the increased complexity, apart from God just showing us that He can darn well do things in a myriad of ways, and make it all work just fine. The two book lungs do the same as the four. This is confounding to evolutionists, many of whom, avoid confronting the truth of their own body's marvelous design -Romans 1:19-23.
    YECH!-Few spiders have poisonous venom, and that's good because we each eat 12 spiders during our lifetime when we're asleep. Ever awaken in the night without coughing, yet feeling you have just gulped 'something' down? Wherever you are on earth, there's a spider within 3 feet of you. 
    Spiders digest food outside the body by injecting nitrogen containing enzymes
    Spiders spin silk! This is one of the characteristics that sets them apart from other creatures. Spiders sail through air on a thread of gossamer
    ½ of the 40,000 species use silk, but do not spin webs. Spiders have 8 legs, as compared to an insect's 6.
    Tropical spider webs are strong enough to catch mice and birds. Spider's web strands are used in the better transit's (surveying equipment) transoms (cross hairs), and in rifle scopes, as they can perform better than anything man made. They can be stretched 30% and hold their position without becoming limp. They are actually stronger than steel or the bullet proof material kevlar; similar in strength to the human body's collagen.
    A spider forms a definite pattern, an Archimedes spiral as evidenced in many of their webs. 
    First a spider creates the framework, to which begins the superstructure by the spider first adding spokes (like a bicycle's wheel). He then begins filling up the open areas between the spokes as he travels around the centre of the framework in one continuous line (much like you would do if you were decorating your bicycle wheels with colored streamer paper) with the silk coming out of him having just the right specifications. How he knows to do this is programmed into him by God, the ever so astoundingly brilliant, yet intimately personal, Creator of all things.
    Spiders don't get caught in their own web because they possess such an amazing 'tracking' system, giving them the ability to keep on the strands of the web using their eight legs.
    Spiders have to be diligent. Each day they have to repair or totally rebuild their webs from damage from all sorts of things that occur in the forest or in the home, like vacuuming. 
    Spider webs also exhibit symmetry with diversity: You've seen the traditional design, but in addition, other webs look like triangles (Hyptiotes spider), like a ladder (Scoloderus spider), Black Widow's (just below), like a funnel (Agelena spider, called Funnelweb spider), single string webs look like fishing lines (Dinopis and Magrammopes spiders), like a hand held fan (Theridiosoma spider), and many more different styles of webs by many other different spiders. Their spatial structures all exhibit mathematical design. Form is about spatial structure.
    They measure like a tailor! How do spiders know to, and know how to measure the spacing between the strands of their webs to get it just right. How do they know how to get the web's tension just right? Why do certain spiders always build the same type of web? Why do they only build so many braces within the hub on those kinds of nets? How and why do they plan the particular style of web that they do? 
    After mating some spiders eat their partners; different from human behavior.
    The spider population of Britain alone, devours about enough insects annually to equal the total weight of Britain's human population.
    BLACK WIDOW SPIDER (Latrodectus):-Black Widow spider's web strands are stronger than steel in some aspects. The spider's strands, used in surveying instruments, are one thousandth of a millimeter thick, about one thousandth the width of a human hair. These strands are superior to man made synthetic strands as they will stretch about 30% before breaking. The Black Widow spider's strands are ten times the strength of the material kevlar used in bullet proof jackets. Its web is is thinner at the top, becoming wider as the bottom is reached.-...continues
