Hey, don’t look at me. Your authority on the matter this this guy, a six-day creationist whose incoherent but entertaining expulsions about the “religion” of evolution are laced with just enough bitterness to suggest that, deep down, he knows he’s nucking futzo.
Here’s what’s on his front page today:
Answers to two old questions that evolutionists like to ask a creationist:
1) Why was the appendix created? It has no purpose. In other words, the evolutionists are trying to pass this off as a redundant organ, and that there was no intelligence involved in creating it. Which in their view proves evolution. But as usual, they stuck their foot in their mouth on this one, because God does not create redundant junk. The appendix acts as a safe house for good bacteria in our digestive tract.
2) Why was the spleen created? It has no purpose.
a) Spleen acts as a filter against foreign organisms that infect the blood stream.
b) Filters out old red blood cells from the blood stream and recycles them.
c) It also manufactures red blood cells as a minor role, and can take over this task if the bone marrow quits doing this for what ever reason.
Ikester thus proposes that evolutionists claim the spleen has no function (an interesting position in itself), then proceeds to debunk this idea by linking to a site describing the spleen’s function–and run by evolutionists. Oops.
He makes the same claim about the appendix and deals with it the same way–by linking to a story from an Australian news outlet in which an interviewed scientist describes the organ’s function as “a safe house for good bacteria, which can be used to effectively reboot the gut following a bout of dysentery or cholera.” Ikester reproduced this bit on his site, but he probably should have read more than one and a half paragraphs, because later on the same interviewee states (emphasis mine):
“The thing is that if we observe what’s been happening through evolution, the higher on the evolutionary scale we are and the more omnivorous animals become, then the smaller and less important the appendix becomes and humans are a good example of that.”
Keep looking, Ike. Just don’t be afraid to make that scroll bar move from time to time.
