Default php5 chap 15 help needed

In the try/catch script, it will validate no problem but thats all. just returns the filled out form and not the text results.

the problem seems to be
 if (!is_object($e) and isset($posted)) {

    echo "Thanks for your entry. We'll be in touch.";

can anyone help with this please.
Regards

<html>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<?php
if (isset($_POST['posted'])) {

   //put the submitted values into regular variables

   $first_name = $_POST['first_name'];
   $last_name = $_POST['last_name'];
   $birth_date = $_POST['birth_date'];
   $phone = $_POST['phone'];
   $age = $_POST['age'];
   $address = $_POST['address'];
   $city = $_POST['city'];
   $state = $_POST['state'];
   $postal_code = $_POST['postal_code'];

    //make an array of field names and data types

    $field_names = array("first_name" => "string",
                "last_name" => "string",
                "birth_date" => "date",
                "phone" => "string",
                "age" => "integer",
                "address" => "string",
                "city" => "string",
                "state" => "string",
                "postal_code" => "string");

    //try checking the data type of each submitted value based on the name of the field

    function form_validate($fns) {

        foreach ($fns as $key => $value) {

            $field_value = $key;

            global $$field_value;

            //echo "actual field value is " . $$field_value . "<br>";

            switch ($value) {

                Case "string";

                    if ((strlen($$field_value) < 1) or (strlen($$field_value) > 99)) {
                        throw new Exception("Please enter a string value between 1 and 100 characters in the <b>$key</b> field");
                    }

                    break;

                Case "date";

                    if (!ereg("^[0-9]{4}\-([1-9]|(0[1-9])|(1[0-2]))\-([1-9]|(0[1-9])|([1-2][0-9])|3[0-1])$",$$field_value)) {

                        throw new Exception("Please enter a valid date formatted as YYYY-MM-DD in the <b>$key</b> field");
                    }

                    break;

                    if (!is_numeric($$field_value)) {

                        throw new Exception("Please enter a number without decimal places or alphabetical characters in the <b>$key</b> field.");
                    }

                    break;

                default;

                    break;

            }
        }
    }

    //catch the exception and produce an error message

    try
    {
        form_validate($field_names);
    }

    catch (Exception $e)
    {
        echo $e->getMessage();
        echo "<br>";

    }

}

//if no errors thank the user
 if (!is_object($e) and isset($posted)) {

    echo "Thanks for your entry. We'll be in touch.";
} else {

//return the filled out form to the user and ask them to try again
