The God of Small Things

The God of Small Things
(The Sydney Morning Herald)
The Melbourne physiologist Professor Derek Denton pointed out recently that the “knowledge of gravity has not been a strong point in the repertoire of the intelligent designer.”

The drainage holes at the top of our sinuses and the way our guts are attached by a membrane to the backbone are good examples. Both designs are fine for four-legged creatures, but now we have evolved to walk upright, they lead to clogged sinuses and hernias, he says.

Hey, nobody asked you to evolve or walk upright. Why blame the Designer?
