anybody who lives within say a hundred miles of the shore, which is most of humanity, is getting enough iodine, because there's a shit ton of iodine in the ocean. Also anybody who lives where the land used to be covered by an ocean, is almost certainly getting enough iodine. Bob is 100% correct, and the creationists are as correct as they usually are.

On a closely-related note, I’ve always wondered (under the evolutionary paradigm) how our bodies ever got to the point where iodine, or other nutrients could make such a drastic difference in our health–if our ancestors _never_ had consistent access to those nutrients. Just occasional access to them wouldn’t seem to be sufficient to get our species trained to expect them. The vast majority of them weren’t even recognized as essential until the 20th century.
But under an ID paradigm, it’s easy to see that we could have been designed with a need for them, so once they became reliably available again, they quickly took us in the direction of our intended (i.e., healthier) state.

EDTA – what evidence do you have that humans didn’t used to have sufficient access to nutrients such as iodine?

Well, Bob, where would they have gotten those nutrients from? Do tell.
Bob O'H January 24, 2019 at 7:51 am
ET – their food.

Nice evasion, Bob. How did you conclude their food had all of the nutrients required?
Bob O'H January 24, 2019 at 8:38 am
Because a lot of people have and still do survive without suffering from a lack of nutrients by eating their food.
Hopefully EDTA will chime in to give us their evidence that humans didn’t used to have sufficient access to nutrients such as iodine.

Bob the clueless, strikes again.
Isn't it obvious? Life requires nutrients so life must be designed. That is Joe-level stupid.
