Vas deferensrefuting bad design arguments E. van Niekerk
The vas deferens is an important part of the male reproductive system. However, some anti-creationists have recently criticized its route for being too indirect, thus something which no engineer would design. However, anatomists have already given good reasons for this structure, including the increased flexibility of the testes to move toward and way from the body to regulate temperature. Critics have also overlooked engineering considerations, providing enough length to build up power and to mix the essential ingredients of semen, and to avoid ovalling (kinking in a soft pipe when bending).

Yet another example of complete misunderstanding of stochastic processes.
TToE does not say that every process leads to the “best” result — it just has to effective.
But never get in the way of a good straw man.
Dude, I’d rather vacation in the far flung
Isles of Langerhans!
Viva la deferens?
Three freshman engineering students were sitting around talking between classes, when one brought up the question of who designed the human body.
One of the students insisted that the human body must have been designed by an electrical engineer because of the perfection of the nerves and synapses.
Another disagreed, and exclaimed that it had to have been a mechanical engineer who designed the human body. The system of levers and pulleys is ingenious.
“No,” the third student said “you’re both wrong. The human body was designed by an architect. Who else but an architect would have put a toxic waste line through a recreation area?”
What deferens does it make?.....................
Where did TToE come from?
Breaking news? Really?
Must be a slow news day. When we are reduced to commenting on the Vas deferens; it just must be a slow news day.
Short vacations to the Pineal are good ... but retirement to the amygdala is best.
That wasn’t my decision.... once it posts, I don’t know how it gets routed.
Really, they are going to criticize my Creator for THAT too?
Perhaps some eyewash on this thread would kill the imagery.
“flexibility of the testes to move toward and way from the body to regulate temperature. “
For my two cents worth, it was bad engineering to require the testes to be exposed. Why not design to accommodate a more protected area.
I’ve always wanted to go, I hear they are nice
this time of year and the rates are good.
>>Where did TToE come from?<<
200+ years of science.
The way I heard it, the third student names a civil engineer as the culprit.
It’s actually a learned response, Sumo wrestlers
If we’re gonna start talking bad design let’s go to sinuses, knees, and spines. And remember poorly functioning parts actually backs evolution, which is an iterative process and presupposes that most of the body could be better.
