As we’ve explained, ID-friendly Brazilian scientist Marcos Eberlin, author of Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose, shouldn’t exist. He admits that. And wouldn;t you know, Darwinian evolutionary biologist Jerry Coyne is not a fan either: The topic turns on the appendix:
The question remains, however, whether the appendix is a vestigial organ—whether it is the remnant of a caecal pouch for digestion found in some of our relatives (some herbivores have pouches rather than an appendix). The important thing here is that vestigial organs can assume a new function. Despite that function, organs like the appendix could still be reduced remnants of a feature that once had a different (and useful) function, and thus, despite their new function, still serve as evidence for evolution. (There are, of course, many vestigial features that have no known function at all, like the muscles in human ears that can move them about or the “snake limbs” pictured below.)

Jerry will never be short of an explanation, no matter what the circumstance.

Jerry Coyne blocked on WordPress in Pakistan. It’s somewhat like blaspheming against Darwin by airing doubts about his theories in the American school system. But in Pakistan, the death penalty is involved.
