New Discoveries Showcase Human Skin Design

There is no need for me to go into an organ recital about the many we have within us. Skin is an organ on the outside. In Star Trek: TNG, a fictitious alien referred to humans as "ugly bags of mostly water".

Some people look mighty fine in their skin. (Me, not so much.) It is true that we are mostly water, but it would not do to be wrapped in paper or plastic. Our Creator designed skin to keep us intact, and it is flexible.

Skin is one of only two organs that repairs itself. Recent studies show that our Creator made it more complex than secularists previously thought.

Research reveals that skin is more complex than previously thought. (Of course, we've seen many times that believers in universal common ancestor evolution tend to underestimate instead of admitting that the Master Engineer is skilled beyond our understanding.) The Mayo Clinic has a technique to heal skin wounds that stimulates our built-in system to commence repairs. Other research sheds light on how skin cells can be shed and replaced without all that liquid coming out. "It evolved" is not a valid explanation, old son. Evidence indicates that this is the genius of God at work.

Most human body organs, once damaged, cannot regenerate. Two well-known exceptions include the liver and skin. One could lose half of the liver and it will regenerate without a problem in most healthy persons. In fact, new research has shown that the skin also is turning out to be far more complex than believed just a few years ago. For example, new treatment systems have been developed to coax the skin to repair itself in the way it was originally designed to heal. One new study involving mice used an acellular product derived from platelets to stimulate skin regeneration. Platelets have been long known to play a role in skin healing, specifically platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). Another study explains why skin doesn’t leak.
