It amazes me that we still see secular scientists and others using the false idea that the appendix is a left-over (or vestige) of evolution. The supposed functionless appendix is used as evidence for Darwinian evolution. This false idea came up in some recent articles, such as in the popular UK newspaper/website The Daily Mail this month.
Basically, Darwin said the appendix was a functionless evolutionary vestige. Because of that, scientists throughout most of the 20th century made light of evidence that the appendix really had a function. Actually this is just one example of how a belief in a wrong idea (evolution) was detrimental to medical science. But, secularists just can't give up using the appendix as evidence for evolution. In the past few decades the evidence the appendix has important functions has become incontrovertible. So what do the evolutionists do with that? Now researchers (including a surgeon who has done genuine research helping to explain one of its functions) have decided the appendix not only has a function, but it is so helpful that it evolved independently over 30 times in a variety of mammals. Fancy that!! We're so glad evolutionists finally gave the appendix their blessing! But of course, they find another way to use it to propagate their false evolutionary ideas.
I urge you to read the more detailed item about the appendix in today's News to Note by Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell at this link.
