Evolution and humans: our feet are special (Evolution)

quote: "It is unique because it is best suited to our style of bipedal locomotion. The variations that scientists have found in foot bones for australopiths suggest there was variation in how they walked even among themselves, which is true of humans today: we have different stride lengths and different ways of coming down on our feet. Some have a more forceful step than others, to say nothing of how the feet of dancers are changed with years of training."

DAVID’s comment: There is no doubt in my mind humans were especially designed. we can add feet to the big brain and other differences.

dhw: The article makes it clear that different pre-sapiens adapted in their different ways to bipedalism. Why would your God have specially designed the different foot variations if, as you believe so fervently, his purpose was to design the brain of Homo sapiens? The fact that dancers’ feet change with training should be enough to tell you that feet change according to use, not according to your God doing special designs.

You have to have fully designed feet for bipedalism before those feet adapt for shoes and dancing. Just as pointed out to you yesterday: 'fully designed organs have to appear before natural selection can act on them" (paraphrased). (Sunday, October 07, 2018, 20:27)
