Those who would claim that the human face is the result of evolution, rather than creation, face some huge challenges.
For example, the incredible expressivity of the human face is surely beyond what is necessary for the survival of our species. Researchers have identified twenty-one distinct facial expressions; not just the six long-recognised basic emotions of happy, fearful, angry, surprised and disgusted, but fifteen other expressions which are combinations of these, for example, happily surprised and angrily surprised, etc. Each of these twenty-one distinct expressions is produced by a unique combination of muscles. The human face has approximately fifty muscles in all, with half of these used for basic functions like eating, speaking and closing the eyes, and the remaining half are dedicated to forming facial expressions. About twenty of these muscles are unique to humans and are not found in gorillas or other apes, and yet evolutionists claim we share a common ape-like ancestor with them. Did these muscles really originate via a gradual step-by-step process as a result of the survival advantages having a plethora of facial expressions o ffers? It is far more likely they point to us being overdesigned, which of course implies there was a designer who did so. This is in keeping with us having been specially created by the God of the Bible “in His image”. Genesis 1:27. – Basil and Joy Porter. The ‘Why Jesus’ Stall, Heathcote Market.
