God did a pretty incredible job in creating the human body. It’s marvelous how smoothly it operates. Amazing really.
Not only was the body created for perfection in Eden it was designed to withstand the rigors of life in a sinful world. Obviously we can (and do) do things that prove irreversable or fatal. But considering everything that’s thrown at us it’s pretty amazing how well our bodies hold up. We can stretch and shrink and heal and absorb and filter. Amazing.
But you just have to wonder what’s going on with some of these organs. We’re all kind of puzzled with the appendix. Then there are things like tonsils and gallbladders that do serve a purpose but aren’t required to sustain life. And what is up with pinky toes?! I think their only purpose is to work as a bumper for our foot.
I smashed my toe today. I’m pretty sure it isn’t broken but it sure does hurt like a son-of-a-gun. <side note: you really need to look up son-of-a-gun on wikipedia. it will pay off in trivial pursuit.> It’s a wonder they don’t amputate your pinky toes at birth and replace them with a little bit of rubber. It would save on pain in later years and might even stop some people from taking the Lord’s name in vain!
