Question: Why are bats living in my attic?
Answer: As our civilization grows new construction is surely to follow.

Question: Where did these bats come from?
Answer: Since most bats eat insects, evolutionists have traditionally taught that bats evolved from primitive insectivores, as did shrews, moles, etc. Fruit-eaters merely modified their diet due to ecological pressures.
Then in the early ’80s J. D. Smith (Smith pp. 347-365) suggested that mega bats and micro bats evolved separately, because there are many physiological differences between the two other than just size. Micro bats have a complicated shoulder joint and a claw only on the thumb, for example, while mega bats have a simple shoulder joint but a claw on both the thumb and first finger. Micro bat use echo-location, while macros mainly rely on their keen eyesight. Micro bat teeth are designed for prey, while mega teeth grind plant parts. Mega bats can live only in the tropics, needing a year-round food supply; many micro bats have the ability to hibernate through cold winters.
