Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

The Coccyx: The Darwin cult ignores biological reality to push its religious doctrine

We never had a tail......

‘Vestigial organs’ are still taught in schools, as ‘proof’ of Darwin’s religion of fish becoming fishermen, or tulips mutating into gender-bendering Teachers.  There is no mathematical possibility that a fish can become a reptile; a reptile a bird; or an ape a human.  The changes to software code called DNA would number in the billions and software systems do not magically produce more code and functionality by themselves.  Darwinian theology is a religion not a science.

 

From Jerry Bergman’s ‘Useless Organs: the coccyx or end of the spinal column, is always paraded by the Evolution-cult as an example of primate to human transformation.  This is anti-science and anti-biology.

 

…human coccyx bones were interpreted as the last remnants of this tail and are, therefore, vestigial.  Specifically, Darwin claimed that the “os coccyx in man, though functionless as a tail, plainly represents this part in other vertebrate animals.” The coccyx was judged vestigial by Darwin primarily because of its size and location. This claim has been uncritically repeated since Darwin.

 

Darwin’s theory about the coccyx is based on ignorance.  The coccyx is composed of three to five (usually four) nodular pieces of fused vertebral bones at the lowest part of the vertebral column. It is the terminus point of our backbone and is designed perfectly for this role.  Its major function is as an attachment site for the series of interconnected muscle fibres and tissues that support the bladder neck, urethra, uterus, rectum, and a set of structures that form a bowl-shaped muscular floor, collectively called the pelvic diaphragm. Without the proper design of the coccyx you would not be able to walk, and your organs in and around the central ventricle of the body would likely fail. 

 

For example, muscles attached to the coccyx serve several important functions.  The cocygeus muscle, which is inserted by its base into the margin of the coccyx and into the side of the last section of the sacrum, helps to support the posterior organs of the pelvic floor, especially during forced expiration, such as in elimination.  The coccyx muscle system expands and contracts during urination and bowel movements, and also distends to help enlarge the birth canal during childbirth.

 

Without the coccyx and its attached muscle system, humans would need a very different support system for their internal organs requiring numerous design changes in the human posterior.

 

Another issue for the Darwin-cult, is that none of the supposed ‘near simian relatives’ of humans have a tail.  All of the major primates lack tails.  The ones that do possess a tail are the cat-like lemurs and tarsiers.

 

Ignorance is not science.

 

 

The Tonsils - another example of Darwin's religious ignorance

A first line of immune defence is declared 'useless' by the cult of Evolving

‘Vestigial organs’ are still taught in schools, as ‘proof’ of Darwin’s religion of fish becoming fishermen.  It is biochemically impossible to have metamorphosis of species.  There is no mathematical possibility that a fish can become a reptile; a reptile a bird; or an ape a human.  Zero.  DNA, genetics and operating systems and software simply do not ‘mutate’ into different life forms.  This is a religion, not a science.

 

From Jerry Bergman’s ‘Useless Organs: The rise and fall of a central claim of evolution’ the tonsils, often cited as part of our primordial development from millions, billions, trillions soon? of ‘evolutionary years’ and an organ which can be happily cut off and thrown away, is of course, just another example of Darwin’s religious ignorance.

 

The Tonsils are important

In recent years, however, researchers have demonstrated the function of both the tonsils and adenoids. As a result of this newer data, most doctors are now much more reluctant to remove either the tonsils or the adenoids.

The tonsils are lymph glands critical to young people in helping to establish the body’s defense mechanism that produces disease-fighting antibodies. Once these defense mechanisms are developed, the tonsils start to shrink in the preteen years to almost nothing in adults, and other organs take over this function. Many researchers have concluded that because tonsils are larger in children than in adults, the tonsils are important in the development of the entire immunological system.

Researchers have concluded that the tonsils “form a ring of lymphoid tissue” that guards the “entrance of the alimentary and respiratory tracts from bacterial invasion.”

Called “super lymph nodes” they provide first-line defense to bacteria and viruses that cause both sore throats and colds.

 

Tonsillectomies harm the individual

Most medical authorities now actively discourage tonsillectomies.

Recently, the largest long-term study on the effect of tonsillectomies ever completed was published. Previous to this, most studies were short term, such as 6 months, or at most, a few years. This new study followed up the patients for close to 30 years post-surgery, and involved a total of 1.2 million subjects, including all children in Denmark born between 1979 and 1999. Of those 1.2 million children, 17,460 underwent adenoidectomies, and 11,830 experienced tonsillectomies within the first nine years of life.

Their health records were compared to the 1,157,684 who had retained both their adenoids and tonsils. The results were devastating for the procedure, with the researchers concluding that these organs should be removed only in severe cases. The 30-year research indicated that the modest benefits of the operations mostly vanished by age 40.

Workers in the New York Department of Cancer Control concluded that those patients “who have had tonsillectomies are nearly three times as likely to develop Hodgkin’s disease, a form of cancer that attacks the lymphoid tissue.”

Although removal of tonsils obviously eliminates tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils) it may increase the incidence of strep throat, Hodgkin’s disease and possibly polio.

 

Tonsillectomies are associated with disease

As many as one in five people who underwent a tonsillectomy suffered from serious diseases or health problems that they would otherwise never have encountered. This common childhood procedure more than tripled asthma risk, and doubled the rates of chronic bronchitis, emphysema, upper respiratory tract diseases, and conjunctivitis.116 It also increased the risk of allergies, influenza, pneumonia, and infectious diseases in general. The researchers suggested that with an even longer follow-up study, an increased rate of certain cancers and heart diseases may have been experienced.

 

Tonsils are vital to the lympthatic, immune and associated organs within these systems.  You can cut off your right arm and survive.  That does not mean it is ‘vestigial’.  When you remove part of a system, there are always consequences.  Evolution’s ignorance of medical science and its obsession with dogma is simply astounding – and dangerous.

 

Religion of Evolution - ignorance about the Appendix and 'vestigial organs'

Philosophy is not science.

With the religion of Evolution and its vacuous counterpart Atheism, fiction and story telling have replaced science.  Consider this religion’s claim that the appendix is a ‘vestigial organ’, useless, ‘devolving’ in size and function over millions-billions-trillions of Darwin-years.  It is just another example of ignorance parading as science. 

 

From Jerry Bergman’s ‘Useless Organs: The rise and fall of a central claim of evolution’.

The appendix is complicated, necessary, and a centre of white blood cell creation, ‘good’ bacteria storage and an important part of the lymphatic-immune system.

The human appendix is a small, narrow, worm-shaped tube that varies in length from 20 to almost 250 millimeters.1 Its average length is slightly over 76 mm, or about three inches long, and 0.5 to 1 cm wide.

new research has determined it has several major differences, including the “myenteric plexus in the human appendix consists of several distinct networks, and appears to be unique in comparison with other parts of the intestine.” Hanani concludes that the “special physiological and immunological roles of the appendix” requires “the specialized and more complex myenteric neurons it contains.”

 

Do these ‘vestigial organs’ like the appendix (or horns, wings, canine teeth etc), come or go?  Which direction is the ‘evolution’ heading?

Lull cited as an example of a rudimentary organ certain animal horns that he assumed are now more prominent than they were in fossil animals. This position is tantamount to an admission that, from the vantage of macro-evolutionism, it is difficult to tell whether organs are “coming or going.” This subjectivity illustrates the conclusion that macro-evolutionism is an origins model based on personal philosophy.

 

Is philosophical ignorance a science?

These organs are not vestigial in the classic sense: they have a purpose—and many of them, we now realize, have a more important role in the body than once believed.

The Lamarckian model concludes that organs deteriorate through successive generations solely because they are not used. Lamarckism has been proven to be without merit and, thus, is an unacceptable explanation today.

 

How is decay evidence of the wolf becoming the Blue Whale?

Some organs labeled “vestigial” may actually be the result of improper nutrition and arrested (or abortive) development.85 Poor diet and lack of cleanliness can contribute to phenotypic size and reduction of the functional capacity of some organs. If some “vestigial” organs did result from genetic changes, this would be primarily evidence of decay, not evolutionary development of organs into more complex (or more useful) structures.

 

Mutations kill they don’t add value

The genetic control of any one organ in humans is highly interrelated to other organs. For this reason, change in the genes governing one organ often causes adverse alterations in other, sometimes even unrelated, organs or structures. Conversely, mutations would likely only create more variability in the total gene pool, and would not totally eliminate a genotype. No known mechanism can that can cause a loss mutation for one structure and as a result directly cause the loss of other genes.

 

Designs and code are reused – see Computer science for more information

A recent paradigm called “Object-Oriented Programming” (OOP) involves a “reusable code.” Applying this information to vestigial organs, Pittman notes that the Designer may have used procedures similar to those used in OOP programming so that each item in a class (e.g. “mammal”) would be built by a basic code, parts which are overridden to produce the many different mammal variations.

 

Why the high availability and fail-over of complex systems?  Isn’t one eye (cyclops) good enough?

Humans can survive with only one good ear, eye, lung, or kidney, for example, even though these conditions may cause the affected individual to suffer some lifestyle limitations. The fact that one can do fairly well with one lung is not predicted by the “survival of the fittest” macroevolution model based on mutations and natural selection. Why have two eyes, ears, kidneys, and lungs when one will allow survival past childbearing years, beyond which selection does not operate?

 

No evidence of vestigial organs exist, including ones that were classified as such eg. the spleen

As the knowledge of physiology increased, it was found that most, if not all, organs and structures that were once believed to be vestigial clearly have functions (and some have vital functions) in the body.  Examples of important organs that were once labeled vestigial include the pituitary, adrenal, and lachrymal glands as well as the pancreas and the spleen.

 

Good bacteria

Most of these bacteria are beneficial and serve several functions such as to help digest food. Sometimes the intestinal bacteria are purged, such as by antibiotics or diseases such as cholera or amoebic dysentery.

 

Digestive function

One of the appendix’s jobs is to reboot the digestive system when this occures. Its location—just below the normal one-way flow of food and germs in the large intestine in a sort of gut cul-de-sac—supports the theory that it acts as a safe house for beneficial bacteria.

 

Anti-biotic production

bacteria system to ‘reboot’ after bouts of disease such as cholera, or the use of antibiotics. Diarrhea is designed to flush out all bacteria from the colon, both good and bad. The bacteria in the appendix is not affected by diarrhea and can rapidly repopulate the colon.

 

Perfect positioning

the small worm-like shape of the appendix restricts access, thus protecting the bacteria inside of it, enabling it to function as a ‘safe haven’ for good bacteria to thrive. The appendix’s position in the intestines as a cul-de-sac at the beginning of the colon enables the bacteria cultivated in the appendix to rapidly repopulate the colon as a result of the natural flow of material through the colon.

 

Why does it get inflamed?

Researchers speculated that appendicitis may also be a result of an overly hygienic society, causing an immune system overreaction.

 

Basic science.  Cells form tissues.  Tissues form organs.  Organs form systems.  In one study 85% of people who had common forms of cancer, also did not have an appendix.  When you remove an organ from the system there will likely be consequences.  The religion of Evolution is not only ignorant but for many humans –  which it despises -- quite dangerous.
