      -Matter didn’t create anti matter -Anti matter didn’t create matter (Both of them were present at the time of big bang) -Both of them didn’t create themselves. -Both of them came from an unimaginable source, that unimaginable source created matter and antimatter (everything) thats why it is known as “the creator” of everything. -- -and that unimaginable creator created all prophets (approx 124,000 from Prophet Adam to Prophet Mohammad pbuh) who introduced God/Allah (an unimaginable creator) as well as they came to us with the complete and beautiful guidance of mankind from the creator of mankind.

    Step 1. Go to Google Step 2. Search this keyword: 123moviesdaily Step 3. Enjoy! The World War of the Ants - The Army Ant One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away. There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life. " Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, 'Wait and Hope.

    with ants being on average a few milligrams, ranging from 1-5 normally, and outnumbering humans 1,250,000 to one approximately, and the average weight of a human being about 140 lbs, aaaand with humans by mass averaging about 6-7 million times that of an ant, ants cannot possibly make up 20% of the total biomass for the animal kingdom unless humans make up a staggeringly large percentage. assuming that your numbers are correct, then there is very little, if any, of the biomass being made up by other members of the animal kingdom, which we know is false since we know they exist.
