Intelligent Design – The Miracle of Life Part II


I’m so excited, beloved, to continue this series with you. Part I we discussed the amazing way a mother’s body stops the immune system from destroying the tiny, developing, baby which the Killer Cells think is some sort of parasite. This week I want to go over some misconceptions about the early stages of the miracle of life.

The vestigial organ argument is used by Evolutionists to suggest our bodies are full of parts left over from when humans weren’t humans. It’s been largely refuted by good science, and almost all the organs once listed have been proven to be needed. The same goes for babies, and we’re going to tackle three today.

The first is the ‘yolk sac’ babies develop in the first trimester. For animals, a yolk sac provides food for the babies inside an egg. God designed humans differently, a baby is attached to its mother in the womb and receives its nourishment through her. So why the yolk sac, is it left over from when we were reptiles? No. It turns out the yolk sac contains the first blood cells for the baby, which means if this ‘vestigial’ piece was removed the baby would die.


The second is ‘gill slits’ which appear on the baby during the first month of the first trimester. Evolutionists claim this is evidence that we were once fish. If you torture evidence long enough it’ll confess to anything. Thankfully, good science has proven that the ‘gill slits’ are really just wrinkles from where the ‘throat pouches’ are growing. There’s never a time when the baby has gills, however, these wrinkles are very necessary for development.


Lastly is what Evolutionists claim to be a ‘tail’ which is actually the end of the spine. In the first month of the first trimester, the spine sticks out, but will eventually be covered when the legs grow. It’s not a vestigial tail left over from our past as different creatures. In fact, although many still wrongly use this as evidence, no true tail has ever been recorded on a human being. There are babies that are born with extra skin and fat in different places or nerve tissue usually to the detriment of the child’s health, but never an actual tail connected and usable as a tail should be.

What is really happening during the first month of the first trimester? DNA with all the information needed to make the color of eyes and hair, the height, and perhaps even the temperament, is already present and at work. What tells the cells to form into hearts, lungs, eyes, or legs is unknown to the secular scientists. They understand that it’s happening, but not why or how. We, brethren, understand what’s happening, why and how God is forming a human being from the day of conception to the day of birth, in His image.

God’s Word is true, His Sovereignty is complete, and His grace is sufficient.

Friend, if you’ve been told that evolution has scientifically proven God does not exist, I ask you to take a closer look. Evolution hasn’t scientifically proven anything because it’s not observable science. Don’t put your faith in failable men, put your faith in Jesus Christ, repent of your sins and cry out to God. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. If you’d like to read about how I came to faith in Christ alone my testimony is here.

My beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I hope this series is encouraging to you. As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
