Michaelanglo and the Cistine Chapel

Just read something on Scientific American about how Michelangelo hid anatomical drawings in the paintings on the sistine chapels ceiling.
And yes i was reading Scientific American and i am indeed English. My favourite thing from these drawings is an apparent voice box of God coming from the 'Brain stem of Man' which is so cool, what a clever dude.
Genius. Here is a quote from the site: 'Is the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel a 500 year-old puzzle that is only now beginning to be solved? What was Michelangelo saying by construction the voice box of God out of the brain stem of man? Is it a sacrilege or homage?

I am not going to go into detail so here is the site.

Okay sorry but the linking doesn't seem to be working. Cheers.
