Evidence To Prove We Are Not a Complete Species...

05 January 2013, 09:05
For years I have wondered about the origins of Mankind. For years I have refused to swallow the absolute rubbish which mainstream education and religion shove down our throats from when we are old enough to understand cartoons.

I am no advanced Biologist or even a Doctor but what I am is a fairly logical Man.

Logic tells me that nature / God (with a capital G) in its divine and sometimes perfect ways generally make all life perfect. I mean from flowers opening and actually facing the rising Sun to undersea corals relying on certain strains of bacteria to survive. To me it just seems in nature everything is perfect and everything over time evolves to suite its surroundings. Either be they threats or benifits.

So this brings me to point out one of the biggest Elephants in the room. That being the Human female and the absolute traumatic act known as childbirth. The majority of people will tell me childbirth is so difficult because 200 000 years ago we stood up and our pelvis became smaller due to now being a bipedial species.

If we as a species have been around for around 200 000 years now according to mainstream science and it was then that we started looking the same as we all look today then why have we not evolved to a point where childbirth is not life threatening for our Females? Surely Nature would have evolved along with us when we first stood up and walked on two legs? Considering us standing upright was evolution in the first place right?

I say this because along with standing on two legs came the growth of our brains and thus the size of our heads grew. Further making childbirth a life threatening experience for both Mother and Child. Why did nothing else grow? Or expand? Or evolve? Lets try to remember that Women and newborns faced a mere 50% chance of survival here in South Africa 100 years ago before modern medicine and technology arrived.

In saying this lets look at this from a different angle and put our religious goggles on for a second.

Genesis 3:16 ...To the woman he said:" I shall greatly increase the pain for your pregnancy; in birth pangs you will bring forth children, and your craving will be for your husband, and he will dominate you."

So god made childbirth painful to teach Women a lesson for their sins as per the Old Testament. My question then is why did Jesus in the New Testament die on the cross for our sins if god was not going to forgive Women and give them pain free childbirth?

I must admit both the scientific and religious views on this subject do not satisfy me. My personal opinion is that we were created in some lab thousands of years ago for whatever the reason and we are an incomplete genetically created species.

What do you guys think?
