A Question from an atheist – Ray Comfort
"It seems much more likely that a number of small changes over the course of millions of years led to the complexity we see today. If not, how do you explain things like the blind spot in the human eye? The fact that our urinary tract runs through the prostate? The tail all embryos have and some babies are born with? The fact that we breathe and eat through the same hole? None of those make sense in light of special creation, but they do make sense when you actually understand the processes of evolution." Mark P
I must point out the language of speculation that you are forced to use in your opening sentence. Words like "seems" and "likely" are always present when a Darwinian believer speaks of what he believes. Let's address your issues. I don't have a blind spot in my eye. Both of them see very well and I am thankful for the 137million light sensitive cells that make sight possible. Do you have a blind spot in your eye? If you do, I suggest that you see an optician and see if he can either fix it, or get you another eye.
You may detect a little sarcasm, which I think is thoroughly justified. To think that a camera lens could create itself is insane, but to believe that the human eyes, and the eyes in 1.4 million different species created themselves, is off the charts.
The prostate wraps around the tube that carries urine out of your bladder. If you think evolution caused the prostrate to wrap around the tube, and you think it's a poor design, then you have a problem with the designing mind of evolution.
As far as I know, all mammal embryos have "tails." The embryo has to end somewhere. Leaves have tail endings, dogs have tails, and Darwin had the biggest tale of all, and you believed him, so now you think we came from fish. But the ending of the embryo isn't vestigial, and neither is the "tail" bone in human beings. Without it you wouldn't be able to go to the bathroom each day because the muscles that make it possible would have nothing with which to connect..
Finally, to breathing. The next time you have a bad cold and your nose is really stuffed up, take a moment to thank God that He gave you another opening that allows you to breathe. Then use that opening to confess your sins, forsake them, and then trust in the Savior so that you will be forgiven on the Day of Judgment.
"Perhaps Ray was using 'blind spot' in a different meaning before you all jumped him...
Blind Spot: A subject about which one is markedly ignorant or prejudiced.
Thanks for all you Evolutionary Atheists admitting to your blind spot. A subject about which one is markedly ignorant or prejudiced."
See 2 Corinthians 4:4
An observation about Southern California natives
We have been living in Southern California for nearly 21 years, and I have noticed something interesting about those who were born here. They complain if the temperature is down to 60F in winter, and I have one friend who even gets depressed if it's a cloudy day. It often doesn't rain for six months. This is because many of them think that the rest of the world has weather like this. We get day after day of windless days and cloudless skies. That's not what the rest of the world is like.
I come from the South Island of New Zealand. It has weather that's similar to San Francisco. Wind, rain, clouds, and storms are normal. When it's a cloudless day with a deep blue sky, everyone talks about what a nice day it is. No one does that in Southern California. They take the good weather for granted.
Recently, I have been watching World War II in HD, and have been brought to tears at the thought of the sacrifice made by so many, so that we could have liberty. If their blood hadn't been shed we would be speaking German or Japanese, rather than English and we certainly wouldn't have what we have today. These courageous men and women gave their lives so that we could live in a country that gave individuals freedom.
The United States is a country where books can be freely given out in universities. It's a country that allows those who want to, to rip out portions they don't like, or to burn them, and there's no fear of any repercussions. We can even get onto a soapbox and have the free exchange of ideas. These are wonderful liberties that many other countries don't have. They are freedoms that came to us at great cost, and we must never take them for granted.
