Science and the Bible Part 7—The Origin of Sexes


“Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” We’ve all heard this question, but can you answer it? Let’s notch it up a bit. If evolution is true, which came first, the male or female?


Almost all forms of complex life have both genders. Although modern science can reproduce life in the lab, it needs real contributions from each sex—to which there are two—male and female. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27).


If the male came first, how did he re-create female without a female participant, and vice versa? Or did they spontaneously, yet without supernatural intervention, evolve from primordial soup simultaneously and discover the procreation process before one or the other grew too old to participate?


If each sex were able to reproduce without the other, how and why would they have developed a complimentary reproductive system?


This is one example why I say evolutionists have more faith than Christians. Believing in the supernatural power of an omniscient God is easier for me to believe with reliability than the unrealistic mathematical calculations necessary to formulate the chances of a male and female evolving simultaneously in order to procreate.
