From a vestigial organ to one that is so important it has evolved independently 30 times?

I was never much fond of the "no purpose" and "junk DNA" positions, finding them arguments from ignorance.

That said, I propose that any questions regarding whether the appendix was "created" or "evolved" should be held in light of all the data. In which case evolution is, I contend, the most reasonable explanation.
