What the article fails to tell us is that about 1 in 100,000 people are born without an appendix and they exhibit normal bacteria and gut flora levels. This coupled with the removal of the appendix during serious infection clearly shows that the appendix may have served a purpose in our past and may serve some little purpose now but will not and does not affect our lifestyles after it is removed or if it is non-existent from birth. I've pointed this out in other threads on here.
No, what you fail to realize is that the article is not talking about your church views or mine. It's simply discussing the diliberate ignorant position trying to prove nothing more than an unscientific philosophical worldview which wasted decades of efforts at true scientific discovery which could have saved lives and benefitted mankind in general. Your continuing ongoing position of being able to live without out an appendix is as rediculous as comparing it to an amputee being able to live and survive without a hand, arm or leg or all of those things given the right set of caregiver circumstances. It HAS a PURPOSE and is a necessary engineered piece of equipment. This article and others are expossing the idiocy and purposed arrogance of those who way back when had no clue of what many things in the body had a function for. Rather than admitting any ignorance on their part and coupled with the need to prove an evolutionary worldview which allows them to make things up as they go along, they invented this irresponsible terminology like "Junk DNA & Vestigial Organs" to cover up the facts that they had no clue to it's purpose and shackled them to a dogma that has actually stifled and set back real scientific discovery.
Humans have continued to degenerate from the beginning to the point now that basic survival on this planet is at stake and who's fault is that ????? Particularly those in the Scientific community employed by their big business Pimps with the initials Phd, etc that they love to flaunt under everyone's nose every opportunity they get. So you give us an example of people born without one. Today it is common for young girls to be born with testicles where ovaries should be. It is common today for a male fish's testes to produce eggs instead of sperm. It is common to find g*y seagulls on the same nest and not being able to reproduce. The genetic informational programming has being messed with by chemicals developed by the Green Revolution gang since the 1950s. So your people being born without appendix example rings hollow not only in the absence of any of your own links, but also your continuing to hold to the vestigial/Junk dogma is not only an unscientific stance, but it actually makes you anti-science for continued insistance of it.
Here's that website again on the worldwide degenerative effects of ignorant scientific pseudo-understanding of numerous things which are bringing our natural world's health down to it's knees. I have posted it before and I doubt any claiming to be a Christian has really looked at this, let alone any Atheist here. But here it is again. It should seriously take anybody even remotely interested a good couple months to really digest the peer reviewed research in there. Last year there were two major articles in the scientific press cheering and celebrating how naturally common h*m*s*xuality is throughout nature. This is a totally fabricated and well orchestrated lie. These groups of researchers (Our Stolen Future Group) have been warning people since the 1980s what was happening way back then with abnormal H*mos*xual behavior being introduced into the natural world through mankind's chemical inventions and dispersal of dangerous chemicals since the 1950s and it's effects on the delicate genetics of the endocrine system of developing festuses in all creatures. Now we see the effects of purposed arrogance of ignoring such so-called alarmist research as many of the worldwide extinctions are now being directly attributed to this greed and selfishness of pseudo-science that the Green Revolution has brought us all this time.
