Appendix Evolved Over 30 Times, May Perform Useful Function, Researchers Say

Appendix Evolved Over 30 Times, May Perform Useful Function, Researchers Say

“Okay, you're entitled to your beliefs. It was said that he did speculate on his theory. Just as the "Theory of Evolution" is NOT a fact, so could his recanting/speculation. After all, it WAS ONLY A THEORY! I for one choose to believe in God. As I posted previously, can you please tell me if we evolved from Apes then WHY are there still apes amongst us? Would'nt they have evolved as well? Come on, kind of rediculous if you stop & think about it, evolution. Then there's the Big Bang Theory, a theory as well, not fact. Humans are made of thousands of cells. How to you suppose one cell became many? Not feasible! So, I'll stick to Christ, Thank you.”

“No one ever said we evolved from apes, no one - not ever. And, yes, it is feasible to have one cell become many. Please do some research or go back to school. And, what on Earth does Christ have to do with your appendix?”

“"Just as the "Theory of Evolution" is NOT a fact, so could his recanting/speculation. After all, it WAS ONLY A THEORY!"
~~~Please. Say that louder. It's the surest way to demonstrate who little you know about science. Look up the definition of "theory" as it applies to science. Hint: words can have more than a single means. Cool, huh?

" can you please tell me if we evolved from Apes then WHY are there still apes amongst us?"
~~~Since Canadians and Americans came from Britain, why are there still people in Britain? See the ignorance inherent in your question?

"So, I'll stick to Christ, Thank you."
~~~And so you'll remain mired in ignorance. At least you provide amusement for people like me :) Thanks for the laugh. Want a banana as a reward?”

“Not ridiculous at all. During times of seperation, the creatures faced different environments and food availability. Thus they adapted to those changes differently. Apes remaining in similar climates needed little adaptation, and thus are much as they were before. Those driven out changed.

Now, equally stupid question. Why are there thousands of different species of fish and birds, if the others are still around. Seriously, this isn't a great intellectual challenge. If you stop and THINK about it.

You're correct, it's difficult for you to comprehend. Though I'm still curious how you believe an infinitely more complex creator popped out of nowhere to make everything simple for you.

And yes, it's the theory of evolution. Science has many theorys, gravity for example. Please, find a tall place and prove (without using wind resistance) that it's a flawed theory.

You are entitled to your beliefs also. Science however, requires theorys and beliefs to be tested, proven or refuted and retested. You are of course welcome to your beliefs, but if you find yourself in a venue discussing science (not fantasy), you must be willing to face peer review and debate. What you wish to believe personally, I stand up for. What you wish to force on others to believe however, I will strongly support or refute, based on all given evidence at hand.”

“You do know it was told that Darwin recanted his Theory on his Death bed right?”

Arturo Ramrez on Feb 17, 2013 at 14:47:38

“Claim CG001:
Darwin renounced evolution on his deathbed.
Source:
Enoch, H., 1916. Darwin's final recantation. Bombay Guardian, 25 March 1916, quoted at http://www.forerunner.com/forerunner/X0724_Darwins_Final_Recant.html
Response:

The story of Darwin's recanting is not true. Shortly after Darwin's death, Lady Hope told a gathering that she had visited Darwin on his deathbed and that he had expressed regret over evolution and had accepted Christ. However, Darwin's daughter Henrietta, who was with him during his last days, said Lady Hope never visited during any of Darwin's illnesses, that Darwin probably never saw her at any time, and that he never recanted any of his scientific views (Clark 1984, 199; Yates 1994).

The story would be irrelevant even if true. The theory of evolution rests upon reams of evidence from many different sources, not upon the authority of any person or persons.”

“No, he didn't. This is a creationist myth. Darwin was a highly religious person regardless of his groundbreaking science.”

“I love ALL God's creatures and Apes are among them but, I refuse to believe we evolved from apes or The Big Bang Theory. If we evolved from apes: Why are there still apes? Why haven't they evolved? And last but not least: We humans are made of more than 1 cell so that shoots the Big Bang Theory! Just food for thought.....”

“Totally clueless! You failed Science class, right?”

Alex Tomaras on Feb 17, 2013 at 16:33:22

“Yes, I agree. And I 'll add that if we are of course in the evolutionary process why is everything complete!!!!!!! We should find creatures with "half" (so to speak) parts literally EVERYWHERE  as well as dying -unfit for life- creatures. But we don't. Evolution is such a tremendous blinding lie.”

“If my ancestors were European, why are there still Europeans? Oh - and for bonus points ... how many cells are in a human sperm? ..and a human egg? There's your proof that we do not come from the union of a sperm and an egg! Must be another miracle which Science just cannot understand. All those photos and altrasounds are the Devil's work, right?”

“I lost mine when I had cysts removed from my ovaries at age 17. Doc came in my room said he removed all the cysts & oh by the way I removed your appendix! I didn't even agree to him doing that. Along with the cut I received. He was supposed to perform the bikini cut but, gave me this grotesque vertical cut. I remember being really upset about him taking something out that I didn't give permission to. His reply when I asked why he did that was, as a precaution. Appendix's have a tendency to go bad & burst. I said, OH! I knew it was there for a reason or God wouldn't have put it there! No wonder I developed stomach problems over time after the removal.”

Grateful Lady on Feb 19, 2013 at 03:16:27

“That's not so automatic anymore. In many cases, doctors no longer incidentally remove an appendix or any other body part unless needed.”

“God put it there to give you a grotesque vertical cut. -joke
By the way, wich god ?”

“Agh! That's scary. Can't you sue him? My heart goes out to you. That must have come as such a shocker.

Also, I fanned you because I love animals too, all animals and advocate strongly for their right to freedom. Welcome to HP.”

“Any evidence of a causal link between your missing appendix and your stomach problems? Do people without appendixes tend to have more stomach problems?”

“Thank you for your comment. I was going to say basicly the same thing but, I couldn't have said it any better than you. Animals have just as much right to live & live in their skin as we do. Please people it's about the animals that suffer, not Beyonce!”

“So, let me get this straight... beings incapable of conscious self reflection, creative thinking or even learning things beyond the most basic level have the same rights accorded to conscious human beings?”

WE THE PEOPLE have our priorities messed up. This guy clearly will NEVER be fit to live among us, so put him down & STOP KILLING innocent animals.”
