Mammary glands, as well as all glands of a mammal’s body, are specialized epithelial cells—in this case, epi­thelial cells of the skin. When the female is pregnant, the mammary cells of the mammary gland multiply. The gland nearly doubles in size as it manufactures milk to provide nourish­ment for the newborn. Parts of the cells pinch off to form milk-filled droplets that accumulate in ducts. In response to the release of hor­mones in the mother, the milk is released and available at exactly the time it is needed by the young. God ordered this system to work as long as the young require the nourishment; as soon as they stop taking the milk, the mam­mary gland shuts down production, reduces in size, and awaits the arrival of more young. This remarkable miracle is performed in the body of the mother, giving her the power to provide the proper kind of nourish­ment for her newborn child from her own body. During the period of gesta­tion, a miraculous change occurs in the body of the mother. Her mam­mary glands begin to develop, and at the precise moment when the child needs the food, these glands produce a nourishing milk that was not there before (which dries out when the child is no longer in need of it); and this milk is exactly the type of food that the newborn child re­quires for its normal development. All this is so marvelous that it is beyond understanding; neither an Aristotle nor an Einstein can explain or comprehend it.

MAMMARY GLANDSEvolutionists came upon another very serious difficulty—the mammary, or milk, glands of the mammals, which, of course, includes woman. The proposition was a bit too much for “spon­taneous variation,” so they reversed their sys­tem and came out with the theory {they call it “science”) that the milk glands were first in­vented by a young marsupial which passed his time sucking at a certain spot in the pouch of his mother’s body. Of course they do not tell us why this young marsupial took this notion, with its far-reaching results—he just took the notion and “got busy.”


Well, this first little marsupial got along somehow without milk, as his parents had evi­dently done, and when he had sucked out his little span of days he died, and another was born which took up the “sucking job” and passed it on. So, it may be all the children of this particular pair spent their time sucking at this particular piece of skin while they were in the pouch. Of course the time came when they had to get out and do for themselves, get married, and have offspring, not one of which had a milk gland to see them through. No, they just naturally “got along somehow” without milk while they were developing the milk gland, though evolutionists contend that “no young mammal can exist at all without the milk gland.” Yet here we see these same evolutionists produc­ing the milk gland by young mammals that not only got along without the gland, but continued to do so for millions of years while this gland was being “developed.” And they were perfect, “fat and sassy,” too, for they grew up, matured, mated and bore young for all those millions of years before there was a drop of milk. Yes, that is Evolution! But how, let me ask, could these marsupials become perfect, breed, bear young, continue through millions of years a full grown and distinct species, not one of which had a drop of milk, while the same marsupials would immediately die now without it?


But another thing, is the kangaroo the mother of us all? Did cattle, mice, dogs, whales, cats, and women get the milk gland from this pouched species? And how was this slowly developing gland continued from father to son, or from mother to daughter? Was the milk gland pro­duced in each new offspring with just the amount of development which the last little marsupial had produced? And in what way was this organ a “benefit”? What advantage did it give the one possessing it? None at all. It was a detri­ment.

Further comment is unnecessary.
