“Do you believe in evolution?” said Roger to his friend Peter who was married to Polly. To which Peter replied: “Yes.”
“Have you sought help for your difficulties then?” Roger inquired of Peter. “I don’t understand what you are saying,” retorted Peter, ” What difficulties are you referring to?” “The difficulties appertaining to you never having had sex with your wife” was Roger’s rejoinder.
Let us leave the conversation at that point and ponder upon why Roger was approaching this interaction in the way that he did. The essential issue here is how can anyone who has had sex believe in evolution. The various things that combine in sex and are associated with the coming together of a man and a woman in sexual union surely must dissuade anyone that such things have just come about through evolution. Let us consider some of the issues:
- Procreation. The fact that through sexual intercourse the human race is procreated make us to ponder upon how such an arrangement came about. The whole phenomenon of the male seed fertilising the woman’s egg are so intricate and amazing in their detail. To conclude that evolutionary forces have achieved that outcome seems impossible.
- Attraction. In being drawn together into sexual union the man responds to visual observation and the woman responds to touching and feeling. This is how attraction between a man and a woman happens. Men and women respond differently, but harmoniously as they are drawn into sexual union. Surely the random forces of “natural selection” and “survival of the fittest” could not have led to this.
- Compatibility. Here is the way in which the male and female bodies are completely compatible in order to bring about the sexual union.
- Binding. Then there are all the bindings that take place between the man and the woman at an emotional level through the giving of their bodies to one another in the sexual union. See here for further information on this.
All this leads me to my conclusion that for anyone who is aware of what takes place in the sexual act to argue that evolutionary processes have led to this seems bizarre. Surely it is more logical and sensible to argue that: “someone has done this.” There are the hands of a Creator all over the sexual union between a man and a woman. It cannot be blind evolutionary forces which have made it this way. Dare I say that when sex is pondered upon in all the reality of what happens when a man and a woman come together, it requires more faith to believe in evolution than in a Creator!
So how about commenting to the next person who says that they believe in evolution about their virginity and see what response you get?!?!
In all this we marvel with the psalmist about I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well (Psalm 139:14)
