Bombardier Beetle Outwits Enemies With Its Chemical Cannon

Evolutionists have attempted to explain away the origin of the Bombardier Beetle’s defence mechanism with a just-so story that can never be verified. When threatened by a predator, the beetle squirts hot (100 °C or 212 °F) fluid at the attacker. It makes the fluid from hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinones.
Irreducible complexity is a much better and more logical explanation of this chemical cannon than a step-wise Darwinian process.
ICR posted a brief video of the Bombardier Beetle. You can watch it here.
