Creationists strike again of vestigal organs: blog.drwile.com/?p=5583

And again these are more examples of evolution: www.sciencedaily.com/releases/…

This is getting old, ‘vestigial’ doesn’t mean ‘not being used for something else now’.

I plan to devote at least two hours a day updating this as I thought it was a shame  that other people  did not get to see  all of my research.

 so it would be a pleasure  if you would add it to your group

Ben Affleck, what a twit. He needs to learn what an inductive argument is, and stop throwing out slogans for the intellectually lacking, yet horrifyingly trendy--new-liberal etiquette. www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeHvMZ…

Check this out: blog.drwile.com/?p=12953#more-…
"Since we now know that the pelvis in a whale is “a critical component of male, and possibly female, reproductive fitness,” the most reasonable interpretation from a scientific viewpoint is that it is not vestigial. It is a critical part of the anatomy."
But he doesn't understand that it too is a product of evolution
From an article he cited
news.usc.edu/68144/whale-repro…
"Finally, they compared the size of the pelvic bones (relative to body size) to the size of the animal’s testis (again, relative to body size). The results were clear: The bigger the relative testis, the bigger the relative pelvic bone — meaning that more competitive mating environments seem to drive the evolution of larger pelvic bones. Males from more promiscuous species also evolve larger penises, so larger pelvic bones appear necessary to attach larger muscles for penis control."
So it is simply more proof of evolution.
Not only that he doesn't seem to get that a vestigial organ can have a different even critical purpose...but it can be still rudimentary and no-longer fulfill it's original purpose in comparison to it's original organ.

Here is something to consider. When someone says that there is no evidence to prove God's existence, someone else will inevitably say "So there is no evidence to prove that he doesn't exist." My response to this would be "Why would anybody need to disprove something that doesn't exist? I mean that is like finding evidence to disprove the existence of a unicorn or fairy."
