Butterfly Alphabet

My father bought a magazine. I saw it on the table. While I was riffling through the pages, the article titled "Butterfly Alphabet" attracted my attention and I read it. It was interesting.

An artist who was introduced as “Nature Photographer” noticed that the wings of a butterfly had letters of the Latin alphabet written on it.

As a result of twenty-four years of work, he managed to photograph twenty-six of them. Every photo is like a work of art. 

The magazine adds its own interpretation while giving the news. The following is stated in the introductory sentence of the article: “Nature discovered the alphabet before human beings.”

This news and commentary made me think a lot. I took the photographs of the pages and sent them to you as I thought you would be interested.


Well done! Thank you. I read it too thanks to you. It made me think too.

Oddly enough, on the one hand, the person who took the photographs of the butterfly wings is appreciated in the article, and on the other hand, the creation of those wings and hence the butterflies, which are extraordinary masterpieces of art, is attributed to nature and chance. There is a big contradiction.

I have to admit that it is not easy to take the photos mentioned above. Anyone who will do it must have knowledge, will, power, vision and experience. Indeed, the artist is a person like that.

Undoubtedly, more is needed for every artistic, decorated and embroidered butterfly to be made and created. It necessitates endless knowledge, will and power.

The aforementioned photographs could not be taken by chance, and the article in the magazine could not be written by chance and printed on the pages; then, is it possible for a real butterfly to have come being by chance?

The commentator says, “Nature wrote the alphabet on the wings of butterflies centuries ago.”

It means, first of all, he accepts that the embroidery on the wings of butterflies is a "writing".

Who is the subject (doer) of the verb "wrote"?

The magazine says, “Nature”.

Does "nature" know what writing, butterfly, wing, letter and alphabet are? Does it have eyesight? Is it aware of what is going on in the universe? Does "nature" know what itself is in the first place?


However, should the writer, the subject of the verb "to write", know what writing is after all?

Knowing is not enough; it must want to write and be able to decide to write.

That is not enough either; it must have the power to act in accordance with the plan in order to write the text it knows and wants. Which of those attributes exist in nature?


“Nature” is a work; it cannot be a master. It is a writing; it cannot be a writer. It is an embroidery; it cannot be an embroiderer. It is a painting; it cannot be a painter.

Although those facts say the opposite, how can it logically be explained that a butterfly can be the work of mindless, unconscious, ignorant and will-less nature?

“Being accustomed” is a terrible disease. A person who catches that disease cannot see the wonderful features in the works.

Unless someone says, "There are letters on the wings of butterflies", one will not look at the butterfly or its wings.

In fact, the real beauty and perfection are in the butterfly itself. What does it matter if there is writing or not on its wings; the butterfly is a miracle anyway.

The emergence of a caterpillar from a simple egg, and the emergence of a beautiful butterfly that sees, hears and flies from a caterpillar is an astonishing incident.

Although it is not possible to accept that even the simplest airplane could come into being by itself or by chance, who can accept that a butterfly, which is much better than the most advanced planes in terms of art, can be made by chance?

Is it only the butterfly that indicates its master?

The universe is a book and every being is a meaningful word. They tell divine secrets to those who know how to look, see and read!
