No, this post isn’t about the ongoing debate about whether we still ought to be using organ music during Sunday morning worship to keep our traditions!
But it IS about honestly addressing the common argument offered either for the non-existence of an intelligent Designer, or that this Designer didn’t design us perfectly, using a faulty body design. One of the pieces of evidence offered to support this assertion is the presence of “useless organs in our bodies that have no real function or purpose and that we could do without.”
Here’s a post from our friends at AIG with a link to an article written by Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell, who fairly and factually addresses these charges. Keep reading, and while you do, ENJOY! Enjoy how smart and caring God is to fashion you so precisely, carefully … and lovingly. And enjoy the fact that you can rejoice with the psalmist, who declared, “I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are you works, and my soul knows it very well”!
As famed NASA scientist, Robert Jastrow, commented in his book, God and the Astronomers, “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to
conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted
by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.” Amen.
Is Your Appendix Useless?
“Many evolutionists have said the appendix has no real function. In reality, however, the appendix not only produces many chemicals that control biological systems in the human embryo, it also continues to fill a number of helpful roles in the development of the immune system in the early decades of life.
By exposing white blood cells to antigens in the local environment of the digestive tract, those cells are prepared for their important jobs of antibody production.
Thanks to modern research revealing the appendix’s important functions in the immune system, most doctors no longer routinely remove healthy ones, despite the persistent evolutionary belief that it would be “simpler to get rid of it.”
Learn the usefulness of many other parts of the human body that people have dismissed as evolutionary leftovers.”
