A Trip To See Bodies


For one of our Christmas presents, my in-laws brought us to see “Bodies…The Exhibition here in Las Vegas. What an eye opening thing it was. “To help you see what a body really looks like on the inside, this Exhibition uses real human bodies that have been preserved so they do not decay.” There are bodies placed in different poses so you see how all the muscles work together. There are samples of lungs, but smoker and non-smoker. Perhaps the neatest room was the “Fetus Room” where they showed a fetus in different stages of development. Candace and I found the baby that corresponded to our current week (Week 15) and we were surprised that it was that Slim was that big already.

The price was a little steep ($28), but we spent a good two hours in there and learned a lot. At first, it feels strange to be looking at real bodies, but after a while it wears off and you just appreciate the detail and intricate simplicity of the body.

A surprise side-benefit of teh Exhibition is the confirmation it was for me that we were created by a God who is our Heavenly Father. The human body is a masterpiece that, for me, must be a divine creation.
