    Creationists, please explain why humans are the only creature that soils itself when excreting waste material.

    We have evolved too far?

    You evidently have limited experience with cows. Check out the tail on one of those sometimes.

    Because we're the only ones that wear clothing?

    Because some stupid people invented diapers. That's why.

    Kids aren't supposed to use daipers. They give cues to their mother from birth that, if she is aware, can be responded to, and the child does not need to wear body waste. As the child grows, the communication becomes more and more efficient. Many babies can be totally done with accidents (minus parental neglegence) by three months. That's right, babies can be little graduates by three months!

    Only in our culture must a child wear diapers, and even here, with a handy little bucket, babies can still be potty trained from birth.

    Not only that, most of us live in cement jungles. We have refined toilet training to an art in the last century or two. You have to be big enough to reach handles etc...

    Are you sure you wanted to tell us this? I think this post falls in to the category of "TMI". Too Much Information.

    TOILETS.

    Give one a try.

    The situation would appear to be the same physically whether our bodies evolved or not.

    Or is this another one of those "God wouldn't have done it that way" arguments that Darwin, Gould and others thought were so compelling?

    I always thought it strange that a person could argue that God wouldn't have done it that way and then in almost the same breath turn around and argue that God doesn't exist.

    Or that God wouldn't have done it "that way" but that mother nature would have. In other words... in one breath the evolutionists argue how amazing evolution is, yet at the same time attempt to find flaws in design as a way to discredit God.

    Only wonder why the Intelligent Designer didn't do a more careful job. Since we moved into the city and have to clean up after Benny the Dog I have observed that his rectal configuration is DESIGNED to prevent him from soiling himself. Why did God switch from a good design on a dog to a poor design when he created humans?

    You observed his rectal configuration?

    Why?

    On second thought please don't answer that.

    Bill no offense but you just may be one of the weirdest persons I know.

    How many people do you know of who soil themselves?

    Seriously, that question is not rhetorical.
