Goosebumps—God’s Good Design

Proof of Evolution on Your Body?

Part 3



This is Ken Ham, a speaker at churches and conferences around the world.


When you are cold or scared we will often say: you get “goose bumps.” They are caused by little muscles in our hair follicles that tug on the hair, and make a hair stand taller. Because we don’t have fur or feathers to fluff up, some evolutionists argue goose bumps are evolutionary leftovers.

But these muscles are important! Not only can the action of making goose bumps produce some heat to help warm us up, but the tiny muscles help protective oils get to the skin. And inside each hair follicle are cells that are ready to help heal a wound. Without them, cuts and scrapes wouldn’t heal properly!

Thank God for His good design.
