Holding Comparisons at Arm’s Length

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we’ll investigate the claim that before we are born our arms go through evolutionary stages, looking like the fins of a fish at one point.

 

Evolutionary assertions like this aren’t even close to the truth. The fact is, the human embryo’s arms are always human arms. Their tissue, and the tissue from which they develop, is genetically nothing other than human. They may not look like an adult’s arms as they develop, but then a baby’s arm doesn’t look like a construction worker’s arm either! What’s more, despite the similarity in mechanical design between a human arm, a lizard’s foreleg, a seal’s flipper or a bird’s wing, each of these creature’s forelimbs develops from a different part of the embryo.

 

As Christians in a modern scientific age, we should never be afraid of what true science will discover. True discovery clearly bears witness to God!

For Creation Moments Minute, I’m Darren Marlar.
