You already know our opinion of the divine design of the human body. If you missed it, see Buffoon Award Winner — The Intelligent Designer. But not everyone shares our opinion.
We found this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else: New Book by Dr. Tommy Mitchell. It was written by ol’ Hambo himself. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The human body is a wonderous creation of God. Its amazing design speaks to the great care God used to build it in his image. Answers in Genesis attempts to provide resources to show we are indeed “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).
Yes, our bodies are perfect. They never malfunction. Hambo says:
The Digestive System and Metabolism is the fourth book in Dr. Tommy Mitchell’s Wonders of the Human Body curriculum series. This series is an in-depth look at the wonderful design in our bodies and is a great resource to help middle schoolers and others understand the human body in light of God’s creation.
That’s the right way to understand the human body. It’s absurd to consider the similarities to other animals. Hambo tells us:
My good friend Dr. Mitchell was a practicing physician for 20 years before joining us at Answers in Genesis, so he’s very knowledgeable about the human body.
The former practicing physician likes to be called “Tommy” — see AIG’s bio page on him: Dr. Tommy Mitchell. He’s now a full-time, speaker/writer with AIG. It doesn’t take him long to crank out his books. We wrote about the last one only five months ago — see AIG: Your Perfectly Designed Body. As we said then: If we are so “fearfully and wonderfully made” by a “Master Designer,” then why is there any need for physicians?
Anyway, Hambo continues:
In The Digestive System and Metabolism, he describes the digestive system in a clear, straightforward manner (with lots of pictures and illustrations) that is easy to read and understand.
This is the fourth book in Tommy’s series. Out of curiosity, we clicked on Hambo’s link to see what the other books were about. Let’s see … the Musculoskeletal System, the Cardiovascular & Respiratory Systems, the Nervous System. and now the Digestive System. As we suspected — he hasn’t written about the reproductive system. Why?
This is the last of Hambo’s brief post — before a bunch of advertising links:
This resource will equip your students to understand how their bodies function and will inspire them to give glory to God for his creation.
And the next time your perfectly designed digestive system misfunctions, dear reader, blame Adam & Eve.
