From Andrew Del Colle at Road and Track:
“The truth is, our cars have evolved a lot faster than we have,” says David Logan, a team member on the project and road safety engineer at the Monash University’s accident research center. “Our bodies are just not equipped to handle the forces in common crash scenarios.”
To deal with these forces, the team came up with Graham. Protecting his brain is a much larger skull intended to absorb forces and fracture upon impact. His face, concave and fatty, is less likely to be damaged. Instead of a silly wobbly neck, he doesn’t really have one at all, reducing the potential for spine and back injuries. His skin is also thicker to prevent lacerations, and his ribs have a layer of external air sacks for maximum protection. More.
The obvious problem is how car crashes came to exist if we didn’t evolve for them. But Darwinism makes people stupid, so followers never think of that.
Added: Rob Sheldon, our favourite physicist., writes to say, Just goes to show that the Intelligent Designer was a whole lot smarter than 3 Australians. For example, woodpeckers survive enormous forces to the head without looking like this.
