For some reason, when I argue evolution and creationism in my head, I always end up thinking about sex. Like I did in this post.
I believe in a higher power, but I'm still always looking for proof. So, I ponder it a lot and it seems to me, that procreation and everything involved contains the most physical "proof" of intelligent design.
These are my latest thoughts on the subjects of divinity and reproduction...
In order to "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth" (Gen 1:28...look at me quoting scripture and all!), we have to have sex. To ensure that these two selfish, wandering, naked man and woman would actually do as commanded, God made orgasms delightful for his pleasure seeking creations!
Since orgasms are delightful, indeed, the conversation must've gone something like this:
Adam: "WOOHOOO...OMG, that was AWESOME. That was AMAZING...we have to do that EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. Deal? Do you think it's possible to do it more than once a day...we should try that!!"
Eve: "It was amazing...I felt so close to you and that one part...was INCREDIBLE. I just wish it lasted a little longer...do you think you could make that happen?"
Adam, mouth agape and spent, is snoring...
Eve: "Adam...ADAM...DUDE...would you wake up. I wanna cuddle and talk."
Nine months later, when Cain ripped forth from Eve's loins wet, and bloody, and screaming...
Eve: "I hope you enjoyed yourself...because we are NEVER doing that again...EVER!! If you ever come near me with that thing again, so help me God...I will bite it off!!"
Adam: "But, baby...don't you remember how good it felt in the beginning. Remember how fun that was?"
Eve: "Yeah, it was good, wasn't it! Allright, yeah...maybe we should do some more of that!"
And blinded by their own self-gratification...generations of humans were created for thousands of years.
Now, let's say that orgasms hurt like a sonofabitch. The conversation:
Adam: "HOLY SHIT! WTF was that?? OMG...I thought it was going to fall off for a second! Damn, baby...let's not do that again. EVER!"
Eve: "AAAAAAAAAAAAGH...OMG...are we gonna die? Is this how it ends?
9 months later...out pops Cain...lots of blood, tears, sweat, and screaming...
Eve: "AAAAAAAAAAAAGH...OMG...am I gonna die? Is this how it ends?"
A few years of parenthood later...
Adam: "Fuck this...not only did that shit hurt like hell to do, but now we have this helpless, crying, peeing and pooping little brat taking our food and tying us down. Let's NEVER do that again...EVER. Deal??"
Eve: "I'm so glad you feel the same way...this sucks. I'm stressed, I'm tired, I just want some "me" time. You have a deal, baby!"
Thirty years later, Adam and Eve die. Thirty after that, their one and only son...the only human on earth dies, too. The End.
To sum up...chalk one more up for intelligent design. Because, somebody up there knew EXACTLY what he was doing!!
