Giraffe Weekend: The Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve - Discovery Institute


Discovery Institute
Continuing our classic ID the Future series on the long-necked giraffe, that evolutionary icon, we confront a sort of sub-icon, a commonly cited support to arguments for dysteleology, or “poor design.” It's the recurrent laryngeal nerve. As Wikipedia ...
