Where Science and Faith Converge

Brainless Embryos Suggest Growth through Bioelectricity

By - May 2, 2018

In a recent science experiment, a tadpole embryo’s brain was removed—but the creature was still “alive” and continued to grow even after its brain was gone. This raises the question, “Without a brain, what makes a tadpole grow?” Fazale Rana joins the host of Let’s Talk with Mark Elfstrand to examine this mystery and how it points to Psalm 139’s claim that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.
