The left recurrent laryngeal nerve proceeds from the brain down the spine, goes around the aorta and then is routed back up to the larynx. This is cited as an example of poor design by Richard Dawkins and was one of the things that convinced him that living things are just a collection of evolutionary mistakes. But I issue a challenge to Dawkins to surgically reroute this nerve, shorten it and as a result improve a person’s speech and voice.
The Human Eye: A Poor Design?
The claim made by evolutionists that the eye is poorly designed is irresponsible, and reflects a lack of understanding of basic biology. Their argument is that the retina is backwards of what is expected with the photoreceptors pointing away from the source of light. But if you examine closely what actually goes on in the eye, the photoreceptors are in a spot where cells are replaced rapidly, and need to be near the blood vessels where nutrients are supplied and waste cells are carried away. If they were in the place evolutionists say they should be, light would be blocked by the red blood cells. These claims are a deception and need to be exposed.
A new fossil found in Peru called Peregocetus is much more like an otter than a whale. It is interesting that in an attempt to prove evolution, paleontologists line up fossil creatures in a sequence much like aligning silverware in a sequence from forks to spoons. The incredible number of changes needed to evolve a whale from a land mammal defies credibility.
Michigan’s Geology tells a story of how sediment was laid down during the flood of Noah in a circular pattern in a basin. It was sheared off with flood runoff and then glaciated. The idea of uniformitarianism was used by Charles Lyell to estimate the age of the Niagara Falls by extrapolating the rate of erosion found in the present to come up with a time scale. This time scale is disproven by historical records, yet it is used as a foundation for evolutionary age estimates.
Derek Marshall shows that the Bible exhibits the use of fibonacci numbers and that is also reflected in life. The fibonacci series is 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144, 233, (377) and each number adds to the previous to get the next number. This pattern is found throughout life and in the orders given by God to build the ark and the temple. Dr. Don DeYoung shows the use of the fibonacci series in the way leaves are arranged on trees in a Math Matters article.
