Cain is a fictional character in an ancient fable.

Can't get a thing past you Darwinists, huh?

Can't you and ArAr agree on anything?

<quoted text>You know this how?

Darwinism would predict a more "efficient" route of the laryngeal nerve, but it also is allowed to predict the more circuitous route. This means it predicts whatever we get, which means it's useless as a predictor.

You are also wrong about the nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerve innervates not only the larynx, but also the esophagus and the trachea and moreover gives several cardiac filaments to the deep part of the cardiac plexus.

Besides the substantial advantage of the circuitous design in the adult, the laryngeal nerve path may have an important function during embryological development:

"The vagus nerve in the stage 16 embryo is very large in relation to the aortic arch system. The recurrent laryngeal nerve has a greater proportion of connective tissue than other nerves, making it more resistant to stretch. It has been suggested that tension applied by the left recurrent laryngeal nerve as it wraps around the ductus arteriosus could provide a means of support that would permit the ductus to develop as a muscular artery, rather than an elastic artery"

- Gray's Anatomy, 39th edition 2005, p. 1053.

Biologist Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig:

"So, today's evolutionary explanations (as is also true for many other so-called rudimentary routes and organs) are not only often in contradiction to their own premises but also tend to stop looking for (and thus hinder scientific research concerning) further important morphological and physiological functions yet to be discovered. In contrast, the theory of intelligent design regularly predicts further functions (also) in these cases and thus is scientifically much more fruitful and fertile than the neo-Darwinian exegesis."
What would intelligent design predict?

He answered that in the statement. He wrote, "His god", which, for a Christian, means the individual themselves.

We? Billions of Christians spread across 40,000 schisms is hardly a we. Each Christian has a god modeled after themselves. A dystopian army of one.

i know little about the universe. get this. i know the one who spoke and created it and life. and he walked on this earth a while back and i know him, too, his boy.

and there are plenty of occasions when i wish i didn't believe. the little girl posting as atheist doesn't know what evil is. there are some vicious people out there and some of us were they. it takes more than a little tear and cough to remain in the realm where temptation cries your name and hell accosts every sensibility you got.
Sounds like you'd be a monster without your fear of hell.

Some of us are easily able to be good without that fear.

Yeah, you have no idea. You "Watchmakers" think everything is designed. How can you possibly differentiate design from non-design?

1. Thank you for dismissing my cogent question. It paints you further as a duped fool. Your concession speech is logged.

2. If everything needs a designer, what designed your Dear Leader? And then what designed that?

3. Current Gap Zeitgeist, seeing as how Dear Leader has managed to micro manage less and less through the millennia, has Dear Leader painted as more ethereal energy than humanoid mad scientist. How can ethereal energy design and manufacture?

4. Why do you attach your cart to the donkeys at Apologetics, Inc., a multi-billion dollars a year business that produces nothing, designs nothing, discovers nothing, and offers nothing but enrichment of their coffers? Please provide one scientific discovery by the Discovery Institute. Please provide one way they have made our lives better. Please provide one tangible idea they have proffered that has led to better quality of life, medical discovery, technology, et al.
