Darwin Was Wrong, Evolutionary Scientists Admit

"Darwin simply didn't have access to the information we have," explains William Parker, Ph.D., assistant professor of surgical sciences at Duke University Medical Center and the senior author of a new study on the appendix. "If Darwin had been aware of the species that have an appendix attached to a large cecum, and if he had known about the widespread nature of the appendix, he probably would not have thought of the appendix as a vestige of evolution."

A few days ago the evolutionary website ScienceDaily ran a story titled "Evolution of the Human Appendix: A Biological 'Remnant' No More." According to the article, "Duke scientists and collaborators from the University of Arizona and Arizona State University conclude that Charles Darwin was wrong: The appendix is a whole lot more than an evolutionary remnant. Not only does it appear in nature much more frequently than previously acknowledged, but it has been around much longer than anyone had suspected."

Parker added, "Maybe it's time to correct the textbooks. Many biology texts today still refer to the appendix as a 'vestigial organ.'"

Maybe, Dr. Parker? Maybe? We know how difficult it must be to finally come around to what creationists have been saying all along, but why should there be even the slightest hesitation about correcting a known mistake in biology textbooks?
