Charles Darwin, in his book “On the origin of species”, introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection.
The earliest life forms we know of were microscopic organisms that left signals of their presence in rocks about 3.7 billion years old. A current theory is that life started spontaneously in some sort of chemical soup, and has evolved and diversified in the smallest of increments over a very long time scale to produce the diversity of life that we see today.
The fact that there has been evolution is not in doubt. The survival of the fittest will encourage the survival of those best adapted to the environment in which they live.
Life on earth for an individual life form is finite. For a species to survive, some form of reproduction process must exist.
Incremental changes over thousands of years may explain the development of some attributes – but not for reproduction, which must be in place from the start, even for the simplest of organisms. For 99% of complex organisms, sexual reproduction is the norm.
The idea that complementary male and female genders evolve independently over time until they are fully developed is simply not plausible – the reproduction process has to succeed within a single generation, and has to produce fully functioning offspring.
The notion of a creator God can’t be true………………….can it?
