What a fascinating story this is! 


Once upon a time, there was a woman and the woman got pregnant.  Since the woman had recently discovered how convenient it is to walk on two legs rather than all fours, she noticed that as her girth increased, her balance changed.  Not wanting to give up the two-legged lifestyle she had become accustomed to, her body gradually grew a longer and more flexible spine in order to accommodate the change in her center of gravity.  After a few months, her baby was born, and they all lived happily ever after.


Isn’t that the neatest coincidence–isn’t it amazing how that evolved, because it would have to happen during one little ol’ pregnancy?  The first woman to go through pregnancy on two legs must have had it rough–she would have been tipping over all the time until that backbone finally got stretched and limbered.  But isn’t it nice that eventually her female progeny were born with that trick spine?  Why, it’s practically a miracle!


I really wish someone would have been recording all this as it occurred, because this is one step of evolution that had to happen very quickly!  It had to have happened within nine months, because after that there would have been no reason for the spine to change. 


And while we’re at it, I would have liked to have seen how men developed differently than women in the first place.  Because if they all started out as blobs that divided and grew and divided again, at what point did different genders develop?  And at what point did it all change to a system where both genders were necessary in order to reproduce?  And both genders would have had to evolve to that point at roughly the same time, or the species would have died out.  And it seems that asexual reproduction (such as bacteria have) would actually be more efficient, anyway, so why did two genders ever develop in the first place?


So many, many questions…


Isn’t it nice to have this answer;  and this one?  Answers that actually answer something, rather than creating more questions.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

  1. yes, it all is so very fascinating  how we evolved.  And it is so comforting to know that we began as blobs…but, I wonder who they think put those “blobs” there in the first place?*snicker*

    Great post.  Isn’t it amazing how illogical evolution is and yet so many accept it?

    I’ve always thought that sexual reproduction was a major hurdle for evolutionists to try to explain.  Honestly, what are the “chances” that a male and a female of the same species evolved at the same time and at the same place with all parts in working order to mate and reproduce young?  It’s crazy how people simply accept that idea without questioning it.
    RYC:  I meant that subliminal messages and boycotting books, etc. were similar in that they are non-essentials that distract us from what is truly important.  I agree that Christian reviews are very helpful, but that is different from Christian leaders telling everyone to avoid “whatever”.  I think I may continue the subject tomorrow.

    I saw the title for this story on CBS news and ignored it.  I went back to watch the video and it was interesting. I am sorry for people who force themselves to buy the evolution lie, but I love what science is discovering about God’s creation!   Video LinkThe whole earth is full of His glory!

    How’s the haven homemaking going? My house is a disaster area right now….and no I’m NOT exaggerating  I have a bone sliver working it’s way out of my jaw. Needless to say I’m in incredible pain despite taking TWO hydrocodone. I’d rather be in labor than deal with pain in my mouth. I’m off to go eat some worms while I’m sitting here feeling very sorry for myself.
    Blessings,

  6. you missed your calling my dear friend……..you shoulda been a lawyer! but, being a Mother is so much more fullfilling isn’t it?

    Thanks BFM, for the video link!  It’s funny–my dh also raised the question about men with beer bellies–how do they cope?  Well, obviously it’s possible, so doesn’t it seem that maybe it would be possible for women as well?  And since there have surely been obese men for quite a long time, why haven’t their spines adapted, too?  But maybe, just maybe, women were made with childbearing in mind, while men weren’t!

    Thanks for the comment on my site the other day.
    I enjoyed catching up on your past few entries.  I have been so busy – mailing newsletters for our staff – that I’ve been almost too tired to do my own entries lately.

    You are mixing multiple evolutions and assuming that they must have occurred quickly. Do you assume that evolution dictates that one day the horse-like ancestors of the giraffe had an offspring with a 40 foot neck? One animal had a “defect” that made him or her perhaps a foot taller. He could reach food at the tree-tops that other animals couldn’t. He grew stronger and healthier because he didn’t have to compete. A stronger healthier animal is much more likely to be selected during mating season. Some of his offspring would have his “tall” genes. Over hundreds of thousands of years the “beneficial defect” of being taller evolved into all giraffes being the substantially taller animals we see today. They can reach the leaves on acacia trees that other species can’t reach.

    @Stone – No, I’m not mixing anything.  My whole point was that something that evolved because of pregnancy would HAVE to evolve very quickly.  Pregnancy in humans only lasts nine months, and only for about 4-5 months is there a significant change in body contours which would affect balance.  I was saying that attributing the woman’s longer and more supple spine to an evolutionary process related to pregnancy is a bunch of hocus-pocus.  Pregnancy does not last nearly long enough for anyone’s spine to change measurably.
    And if, as you imply, one woman was born with this mutation and some of her offspring inherited it, then would that mean that all the women without the mutation simply died out?  Since it seems that all female humans now have that adaptation, then they all must have been descended from this one woman.
    That seems a little unlikely to me, since this spine “defect” did not make the woman “stronger and healthier” in any way.  The only difference it made was in her comfort during pregnancy.  There doesn’t seem to be any basis for natural selection here, especially since the difference could never be known at all until after mating had occurred.
    So my conclusion would be that even if it were an evolved trait, it could have had absolutely nothing to do with pregnancy.  This is just a good example of some of the silliness that gets passed off as science.  It’s not credible–in fact, it’s laughable–but people will believe pretty much anything, I guess!
