It displays a straw man of what modern man would look like if we still had all of our vestigial organs. The result looks like a monster from tentacle hentai. I'm not kidding, the man looks like he is covered in dicks.

And some men act like they still are.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

That's not a tailbone, it's a vestigial tentacle bone. Checkmate, creationists!

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Creationist view of vestigial organs
eyeballs for nipples? Where the fuck are they even getting these vestigial organs from? Do they have any idea what vestigial organs actually are, what they were or where they are?


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

It's neither adaptive or vestigial. They are just carry overs from similar development in the womb between the sexes. The evolutionary biologist and paleontologist Stephen J. Gould says the following in the attached paper (p. 83):

“Males and females are not separate entities, shaped independently by natural selection. Both sexes are variants upon a single ground plan, elaborated in later embryology. Male mammals have nipples because females need them—and the embryonic pathway to their development builds precursors in all mammalian fetuses, enlarging the breasts later in females but leaving them small (and without evidence function) in males.”

This shows why education is so important and that these fools decided to skip out on biology class in high school.

so what do the creationists say about it ? have they come up with a reason why the creator who always has a shitty plan for everything would give men nipples ?
