Medical College of Wisconsin's Dr. Bolender presents The Miracle of Human Development, Jan. 24, 2012

Brookfield, Special events, Creation Science / Intelligent Design

The Creation Science Society of Milwaukee is pleased to present Dr. David Bolender, Ph.D as their speaker on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, 6:45pm. He will be discussing "The Miracle of Human Development from Conception to Birth".

Dr. Bolender is very familiar with this subject as he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy and Director of the Human Development Course at the Medical College of Wisconsin. "He also teaches Clinical Human Anatomy and Cell and Tissue Biology as well as advanced anatomy electives. ...he has participated in research on the role of growth factors in the development of the heart, limbs, and blood vessels."

Medical science has come a long way since the display of preserved human fetuses so many of us remember at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. As I recall, there was at least one real specimen at each stage of development. The display dated back to the 1930s. Back then, and even in my lifetime, "details of prenatal development were unclear for many years and the subject of much speculation and misinterpretation". But thanks to improved technology we get a glimpse into this once hidden realm. Advances in medical imaging has given us this "window into human development in the womb." "Dr. Bolender will share many of their most amazing new insights in this presentation."

This meeting is not to be missed! Bring your family and friends to Brookfield Lutheran Church, located at 18500 W. Burleigh Road, in Brookfield, Wisconsin on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, 6:45pm. (The church is just east of Brookfield Road on Burleigh Road)

No wonder the Psalmist David wrote in Psalm 139:14:
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.


Did you know? Humans at about 2 months have webbed fingers, but our DNA also carries the instructions for those webs to die, once the fingers develop from the buds. This is called PCD or Programmed Cell Death. These webs "serve as scaffolds, supporting the emergence of more permanent and specialized cells". (Don't feel badly if you didn't know this; I only learned about it at the last CSSM meeting with Biologist Paul Frank.)

UPDATE: Since the presentation is now past, check out this YouTube of Alexander Tsiaras: Conception to birth for a taste of what you missed. The photography is amazing! Dr. Tsiaras concludes regarding the complexity of this process "it's a mystery, it's magic, it's divinity".
