From head to toe, the human being has a uniquely wonderful design! Our unique upright stature, unique facial expressions, unique brain and unique beauty are just some of the many aspects that make humans different from all other creatures. In this booklet, Stuart Burgess explains how these characteristics give humans many unique creative and emotional abilities, and demonstrates how they point to a Creator and are consistent with the biblical explanation of the origins of man.
Professor Stuart Burgess has taught engineering design at Cambridge University and Bristol University. He has also carried out spacecraft design for the European Space Agency. In 1989 the Minister of State for Trade and Industry presented him with a Design Council Prize for engineering design by. In 1993 he was awarded the Turners Gold Medal for engineering design, presented by the Vice Chancellor of City University.
This book is an ideal companion to Creation and Evolution, another Creation Points book. Stuart Burgess approaches the topic in a different way by looking at the uniqueness of man. As a designer in engineering he approaches the topic by looking at the uniqueness of man when compared with animals, from a designer s perspective. He raises a number of important differences between man and ape that enable man to walk in an upright manner. One of the key issues being the design of the foot, which some scientists believe could not have evolved, as it would have required several parts to have come into existence simultaneously. He also looks at a number of other features unique to man. The second part of the book is a brief overview and rebuff of the historical evidence that man evolved from the ape. It is very useful to have this information collated in the manner that Stuart Burgess does, it raises a number of issues evolution theorists will have great difficulty in answering.
