Evolution-- male and female

How did men and women evolve together? Was there once a unisex? hermaphrodite that was both? Did they have sex? How did sex evolve?

I am just asking because how did each type of animal evolve into male and female at the same time?

  • That's where the theory of evolution doesn't stand up.

  • The same way plants and all the other animals did.

  • If you have $70 to spare, this book will explain cell division, mutation and natural selection from single celled organisms through to humanity quite nicely

  • How did men and women evolve together? By the times humans evolved the sexes were already separate, there are biological advantages for complex species to procreate in this way.


     Was there once a unisex? hermaphrodite that was both? There are still creatures that reproduce asexually or carry both necessary pieces, that was the case before humans too.


    Did they have sex? How did sex evolve? I am just asking because how did each type of animal evolve into male and female at the same time? The split was part of the evolutionary process & necessary for more complex species to evolve.


    It is a complex process but is easily understood when you see the mechanics of it. Try a book like the one suggested above.

  • Well, personally I believe in Creator Guided Evolution. There IS PROOF of evolution. However it doesn't stand to reason that the Gods had no part in it. Otherwise there would be other human breeds like there are of Cats or Monkey. I don't think it was random that we evolved the way we did or that there was a male and female. But I don't think it was just "Poof" there's people either...

  • Both sexes evolved simultaneously, however there is scientific evidence that human females are the original gender and the male is a modification of the female. 


    I guess that debunks the Adam and Eve theory doesn't it?

  • You should read The Red Queen: Evolution of sex and human nature. Very interesting and has some theories that make good sense about this.

    This is true. The male chromosome "Y" is actually just a female chromosome "X" with a piece missing.
