Anyone who lived through the 70’s 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. As an infant, David 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 such a long period of time 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 from foreign agents that have the potential to bring about death. When the immune system works our bodies are protected from the attack of bacteria, viruses, allergens and toxins. If the immune system does not work, 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  survival of the fittest shapes and molds life over time? 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 of how the immune system evolved gradually. 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 You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very 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 you they won’t have an answer. The only reasonable explanation is that there is a Creator who designed life – exactly what the Bible states.

The Bible perspective on the subject of the complexity of the human body makes sense and it’s the truth.
