Mr. John Paulin made a reaction to one item in our blog. He writes:
“While the appendix may help produce good flora, it is not a necessary part of the human body. The fact that it is prone to serious infection and that people who have it removed are seemingly perfectly healthy afterwards suggests that the appendix is a poorly ‘designed’ organ if you choose to believe that God made human beings in a “good way”. Also, you obviously have a poor understanding of evolution if you believe that major evolutionary changes occur in a few thousand years. Take the time to fully understand how complicated evolution and natural selection are before you post ignorant responses trying to justify the mythology of creationism.
“Please stop dumbing America.”
(Sgd) John Paulin
Following is my observation:
The finding that comes from reputable medical teams from reputable American universities that said the appendix is a “factory of good flora” is the issue. Evolutionist used to taunt creationism by pointing at the appendix as utterly useless. The question is: On this appendix issue, were evolutionists right or wrong when they concluded that the appendix was good for nothing? They have now been proved WRONG.
The American medical school researchers have concluded that the appendix do produce good microbes helpful to the well being of the body. Still Mr. Paulin prefaced his statement by writing, “While the appendix may help produce good flora, it is not a necessary part of the human body.” He says “it may.” He should say, in agreement with scientific research, “yes, it does.” And he should confess that the atheistic evolutionist taunt of past decades was utterly useless.
He closes with the appeal, “Please stop dumbing down America.” We are not dumbing down America. Mr. Paulin’s belief and promotion of atheistic evolution is damning America. Of course some would prefer to be damned than be dumbed. I wished Mr. Paulin should have been present when the Pilgrims and founding fathers of America laid the foundation of the American Nation so that he could have shouted, “Please stop founding up America with the motto, ‘In God We Trust.’”
Mr. Paulin thinks “good design” by the God of heaven is that which is not prone to serious infection. But there are many organs of our body that are prone to serious infections. This kind of reasoning is based on materialism. That there is no inner man, no spiritual aspect of personality. To a spiritual person an organ, like the appendix, that is prone to serious infection serves a beneficial purpose. Infection would remind the individual that he is mortal, thus he prepares for the eternal destiny. A person who does not sometimes become weak become proud and thinks he does not need God. But a person who sometimes become sick would think of existence beyond the grave. Therefore, an organ that is prone to infection serves a good purpose. ©
