Perhaps Dr. Mark Puglisi (12/22, Letters) needs to brush up on his medical journals before he dismisses the lowly appendix as a purely vestigial or useless organ and thus evidence against divine creation. It seems that just last October researchers at Duke University Medical School published a theory for the purpose of the appendix in historical times.
When science asserts that anything it cannot or does not understand and explain is nonexistent or unexplainable, then it ceases to be science and begins to be dogma. Hubris has no place in medicine or any other branch of science, Doc.
Mark Puglisi Jr., MD, doesn’t know me but has pronounced me as scientifically illiterate for being in agreement with Darline Metsker regarding creation of the human body.
Then Clarence Edmondson Jr. declares that Darline has been poorly educated and that evolution explains creation.
These conclusions were based upon Darline’s questioning the latest revelation about proposed evolutionary development of special capabilities to prevent pregnant women from falling over.
Permit me to state that I am a well-educated scientist and retired university professor. I give zero credence to the theory of evolution. Further, creation doesn’t need a fabricated theory to explain its truth. Never has evolution been able to refute a single creative act by our Almighty God.
