“Blind as a bat.” Really?
That’s a myth.
Most bats can see as well as humans—and are even adapted to low-light like cats—and in color.
Where did the myth come from? Perhaps from the observation of their navigation at break-neck speed through total darkness.
Their unique echolocation ability is literally thousands of times more efficient than any similar system built by humans.
But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you…who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this…?
— (Job 12:7-9).
