Improper

The article talks about "the proper design [of the hand] by the Creator for dexterous performance of numerous functions following the evolutionary remodeling of the ancestral hand for millions of years."

I find this extremely offensive because the implication is that Jesus descended from non-human primates. Everyone, however, knows that the Creator created humans in His own image.

I can only hope that PLoSONE editors correct the error immediately before it does further damage to the proper scientific understanding of the origin of different species.
