This is good evidence for physical degeneration and however the great majority of vestigial organs are necessary and functional parts of the human body. The thymus gland is a gland that surrounds an infant's heart at childbirth quickly shrinks as the child grows so much that it is difficult to find in an adult. The evolutionists have therefore proclaimed this as proof of the theory of evolution, since it has no use while as they don’t know that this is an indication that creation was made by God who has a master plan for everything he
