You do not hear much about the issues of evolution and God nowadays from Christians. This could be because Christians have learnt their lesson to keep real quiet and maybe scientists like Richard Dawkins will go quiet and leave them in peace, so the Church can go about its contemporary mission to recruit migrants to put bums on seats. However, time to time one comes across articles raising issues Christians should be squawking about, but who generally lack the courage, intellect, and education, to address. How about the question of the origin of sex, which seems to defy the natural selection of random genetic mutations mechanism:
“Why is evolutionary sex so threatening that it dare not even be mentioned in textbooks or science classes? Given the unique nature of gendered, sexual meiosis compared with non-gendered, asexual mitosis, the first-ever generation of sexual reproduction would have required 1) a never-before-seen male organism and a novel female organism, 2) magically having compatible chromosomes, and 3) a death-defying process of precisely halving their chromosomes, mixing them together in a revolutionary way, and then recombining to produce, not a clone (as in asexual replication), but a unique offspring unlike any on the planet. Not to mention the minor details of geographic proximity and an evolved instinct to mate—all absolutely required in round one of sex to get the sexual ball rolling.
