Anyone who lived through the 70s will remember David Vetter, the young boy better known as the “Bubble Boy. David, born without a functioning immune system, lived his entire life in a completely sterile environment. First, as an infant, he was placed in a small “bubble” crib. Later he lived in a one-room bubble. Eventually, at the age of twelve, David passed away. His life was most significant because he was the first person to survive so long without a proper functioning immune system.

Certainly, David’s life and death should cause serious thinking people to ask some questions about the idea of Darwinian evolution. It is obvious that the immune system acts like a bubble around the human body protecting it from foreign agents that bring about death. When the immune system works, our bodies are protected from the attack of bacteria, viruses, allergens, and toxins. If the system does not work, then the results are catastrophic and can eventually be lethal.

So how would an evolutionist explain the development of the immune system through the concept of natural selection and the idea of the survival of the fittest? According to the theory, gradual changes that occur over millions of years are responsible for producing all the complexity we see in living creatures.

Stop for a moment and think. The immune system must be functional, or you don’t have an organism that can be in the process of evolving. If evolutionists insist on calling their theory scientific, then they must come up with a well-demonstrated mechanism on how the immune system evolved. It is not enough just to say that it happened. We must be told how it happened in a step-by-step process.

It is interesting to note that it is common for prominent evolutionists to ridicule Bible-believing creationists, saying they are religious bigots who are forcing Science back into the dark ages.  However, it seems to me that the inadequate explanation of the origin and development of the human body by evolutionists shows they also have a faith – a faith in their faith in evolution.

The Bible gives God the credit for the complexity of the human body. The Psalmist wrote: “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.[1]

Next time you are confronted by someone who believes in evolution ask the person to describe to you how the immune system evolved. I guarantee they won’t have an answer. The only reasonable answer is a Creator.

The Bible perspective on the subject of the complexity of the human body makes sense, and it is also the truth.

I am Roger Oakland. This has been a biblical perspective to help Understand The Times.
