DAVID: Upright walking which only we do requires a specialized foot with the big toe properly aligned. A change in gene expression provided for them:

QUOTE: 'You can evolve new skeletal structures by changing where and when the signals are expressed, and it's very satisfying to see similar regulatory principles in action whether you are changing the armor of a stickleback, or changing specific hind-limb structures during human evolution.'"

David's comment: Chance or advanced planning? If God guided evolution this shows how He might have engineered it.

It also shows how the cell communities that comprise every organism “might have engineered it”. Not advance planning, but improvement as they cooperate in response to environmental conditions: “And they did it by studying a tiny fish called the threespine stickleback that has evolved radically different skeletal structures to match environments around the world.” (My bold) Are you now telling us that God preprogrammed or personally supervised all the stickleback's variations?
