Vestigial Organs Are Not Vestigial!

The plica semilunaris of conjunctiva is though...

The plica semilunaris of conjunctiva is thought to be the vestigial remnant of a nictitating membrane in humans.

One of my frequent commenters here is Don Ruhl of The Bible Meditator.  Today he has a Creation Science post for you all.Vestigial Organs Are Not Vestigial!

It’s kind of long, but his points are great. The funny thing is how we keep finding purposes for all of these things, but common thought and especially kids’ textbooks tend to be decades or even centuries behind teaching these findings.  For example, the “animal stages” developing babies go through was shown to be a hoax in the 1870s, but they still teach it!

Interestingly, how we develop in our mother’s womb explains many of these features in humans.  Answers in Genesis has an excellent article on this, including the “plica semilunaris” [don’t ask me how to say it!] you see in the picture.

Here are some articles on the other “Vestigial” organs that Don Ruhl ran out of room for:

Answers in Genesis: Setting the Record Straight on Vestigial Organs

Answers Magazine: Hind Leg Bones on Whales

ICR: Blind Cave Fish

ICR:; Self-Cloning Lizards

And, for the guys: AiG: Why do Men Have Nipples?

Or, here is one long article that covers them all (including Dandelions):

Creation Studies Institute: Vestigial Organs: To Function or not to Function, that is the Question

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:31

For the creation was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, because the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.  For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now.  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, that is, the redemption of our body. Romans 8:20-23

    It’s so silly when people say that there are “vestigial organs”. I find it sad that people continue to believe the lies as well. Everytime they find another purpose in these organs, the more praise I give the Creator. His design is incredible!
