Pin the Tail on the Darwinist

As a child, did you ever play "Pin the Tail on the Donkey"? You blindfold the participants (one at a time), spin them a bit, then have them put a tail thing on a picture of a donkey that is attached to a wall or something. I wasn't too fond of that game.

Darwinists often try to pin the tail on the human by claiming that sometimes people are born with "tails". (Sometimes they confuse "tail" with the tailbone, or coccyx, which is a part of normal human embryonic structure.) These people claim that these "tails" are leftover from our alleged evolutionary history.

Now, wait a minute, old son. When someone says that we "evolved from monkeys", they risk the wrath of evolutionists who say that we didn't evolve from monkeys or apes, but that they diverged from a common ancestor way back yonder. But they want to claim we had tails, the "throwbacks" prove it. Lemurs have tails, and they're on the evolutionary tree, what of them? Another "but" is that the great apes, including our "closest relatives", the chimpanzees and bonobos, do not have tails. What a mess.


Some proponents of Darwinian evolution claim that humans are born with tails, a result of our alleged ancestry. This is false, science and theology indicate otherwise.

These so-called human tails are not called "tails" through scientific knowledge, and there are Darwinoids that are downright dishonest about their nature, function, and existence. Yes, sometimes people are born with something resembling a tail, but it is occasionally a fatty tumor called a lipoma. Other times, they are a birth defect in conjunction with related problems. No, we were not the product of evolution, we are the product of God's creation — Adam did not have a tail, nor did his ancestors because there were no ancestors of Adam.
A persistent argument for evolution is the idea of supposed atavistic organs. These are thought to be ‘throwbacks’ to a believed evolutionary ancestral state. This is allegedly caused by genetic information within the DNA for that ancestral trait which is somehow (e.g. by mutation) ‘uncovered’ or able to express itself. Whereas it had previously been ‘covered’ or repressed (‘switched off’), now it is ‘switched on’.

This is related to (but not the same as) the issue of so-called ‘vestigial’ organs, which are supposed to be useless or degenerate organs that are a ‘leftover’ from our evolutionary past. A prime example of this in humans used to be the appendix, now known to have definite function.
