The wondrous things we learn from creation scientists are always awe-inspiring. Consider what we found today at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), described in the Cast of Characters section of our Intro page.
The title of AIG’s stunning new essay is: Your Legs Are on Backwards. That title is no joke. They’re serious, as you’ll soon see from the following excerpts, to which we’ve added some bold font for emphasis. Their lead sentence says:
You might be surprised to discover that your legs are on backwards compared to your arms.
Surprised? We’re speechless! Then they offer what they refer to as an experiment — a creation science experiment — which can be performed in the comfort of your own home. Like you, we can’t wait to learn more, so let’s plunge right in.
If you stand up straight with your palms facing forward, your forearms will bend forward at the elbow, but your lower legs will bend backward at the knee.
Hey — they’re right! Wow! They even have helpful diagrams at the end of their article to show how the experiment should be conducted. This is amazing stuff. But if our limbs are all turned around, how did we get that way? Let’s read on:
We can thank our Creator, however, for His wisdom in making us this way. If our arms flexed backward like our legs, it would be difficult to see our hands working behind our backs. On the other hand, if our legs flexed in the opposite direction, it would be difficult to walk forward.
That makes perfect sense! AIG continues:
God gave His creatures a variety of designs to suit His purposes. Bats’ legs, for example, are not completely rotated. As a result, the bat can’t walk on the ground, but its legs are perfectly designed for flying and hanging upside down in caves.
That absolutely proves the Darwinists are wrong. We ain’t no kin to no bat! Let’s skip a bit and jump right to the end:
So the next time you want to use your hands or feet, remember that God designed them for a purpose and He wants you to use them for His honor and glory. For example, you can bend your knees, fold your hands in prayer, and thank Him for Jesus who saved you from sin and death.
You see? That proves there’s a divine purpose for everything! Contemplate that, dear reader. And contemplate also that AIG’s essay is a splendid example of Encolonization — the condition of having one’s head perfectly located to encourage creationist thinking.
