Darwin can explain, creationists can't.

Darwin can explain, creationists can't.

In my science class, taught by a YEC, we made much of the idea that there are no such things as vestigial organs. In this case, 'vestigial' was defined as 'useless' and some time long ago, scientists had identified 200 parts of the human body as 'vestigial,' but over time, medical science identified uses for the vast majority of them. The handful that were remaining, we were confidently assured, will have their usefulness identified any day now. Thus, evolution is false.



Creationism's method in a nutshell: redefine, misdirect, and declare victory.

That's true. And those enmeshed in it really believe they have won (unless, like you and others, they start questioning). While the rest of us just shake our head and contemplate how sad they are.

Really this sort of study and information is for people who don't know or haven't decided. As you know. Well, I guess it is another data point for those of us who already know as well.
