Primordial Poop

Primordial: [pry-more-deal] having to do with the first, like it was in the beginning.

Poop: well, I think you already know that one…

In my e-mail box today was the Creation Research Newsletter. It always has something fascinating to learn and answers to questions I would have answers by myself. One of the articles asked about body waste [poop] before the fall ruined everything. I figured you would like to hear about this since I did, so here goes.

Nowadays the stuff that comes out of us is disgusting and messy. It isn’t possible to picture that this would have been true before sin came in (or after those in Jesus’ kingdom get forever bodies- I Corinthians 15:53). So what was God’s purpose in our intestinal system?

First, if we were to go on an only raw fruits an veggies diet, things wouldn’t be too bad even today. Also, there wouldn’t have been any bad change in the bacteria that lives inside of us yet, so there wouldn’t have been any yucky smells (or cavities, as MacKay points out).

Second, the whole process of digestion is actually very good for the plants whose fruit we eat. You’ve probably studied about this in how plants spread their seeds. Our bodies don’t break down the seeds, so they aren’t hurt by a trip through our gut. Then, they are deposited in a super-quickly prepared high-potency compost.

Ewww, still not pretty, but the God who designed the Proboscis Monkey doesn’t have the same view of pretty as we do all the time!

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:29-31
