    The human tail bone does have some functionality, though it is a vestige inherited from our ancestors. Human embryos develop a tail around 28 days after conception, but it is later reabsorbed into the body, leaving behind the coccyx, or tail bone.

    This scientific article explains the the issue of the vestigial human tail bone very well: http://oolon.awardspace.com/vestigial.htm

    No the tail bone is not useless like evil-utionists think. It is important part of our skeleton. God created it just like it is just to make unbelievers scratch their heads. Isn't the creation wonderful?

      If you disbelieve evolution, then you also have to disbelieve the Big Bang, plate tectonics, the fact that the earth revolves around the sun, microorganisms, cells, and gravity. After all, they are all scientific theories.
