Vestigial Organs: From 100 to None
Are our bodies a mix & match of old parts that are leftovers from evolution or does science point to complex and special design? You’ve heard that the tonsils, appendix, tailbone and more are vestigial remnants…Is that even remotely true? What has modern scientific study shown us about these supposed “evolutionary leftovers”? Dr. Jerry Bergman has taught biology, biochemistry, anatomy, genetics and psychology in universities around the country. Dr. Bergman holds 9 degrees, including a Ph.D. from Wayne State University. With over 1,000 publications to his name, including over 20 books, his work has been translated into 13 languages.

Excellent. We were fearfully and wonderfully made and when Dr. Bergman discussed how taking out these “useless” organs can cause problems and disease, I was reminded of Revelation 22:18-19. It isn’t a good thing to take away from the word of God and likewise it isn’t a good thing to take away from our bodies either. I also love how it was shown that the Bible knows best when it comes to cleanliness in preventing disease. A study of infectious diseases shows that when people began to practice biblical hygiene and ate a biblical diet, these diseases decreased and in some cases went away all the while a biblical diet/hygiene strengthened our immune systems. If everyone followed biblical hygiene, ate a biblical diet and followed biblical medical practices, people would be so much better off. Unfortunately, men think they know better than God hence “vestigial” organs that were removed. Proverbs 16:25 (KJV) There is a way that seemeth right into a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
