Apparently one of the common claims for our bad backs is that we used to walk on all four limbs, and our backs were not designed to walk upright. Like Morris, I disagree with this assessment. As he points out, animals that walk on four limbs have back problems just as we do.
One thing that is interesting in this article is Morris' claim that our back problems are due to the curse put upon man by God, after Adam sinned. If he wants to believe this, he may, but I see no reason to claim this. This is an argument meant to bolster his claim of no pain and suffering (and death) prior to sin, and is merely a guess on his part, not based on any evidence.
If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
