yes
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Yes I love to learn something new :)

Question:
Some humans have opposable big toes whish function like thumbs. This allows them to grasp objects very strongly with their feet. For modern humans though, this trait isnt very useful. What kind of structure are these toes?

I'm not sure of the term, maybe just non-opposable?

I discovered what the term is off of another web site.

The opposable toes would be considered vestigial structures.
