No, don't be sorry about that, you're absolutely correct. That's semantics, but meaningful semantics. I just assume (see, that's the problem...)
that most people equate simplicity to least number of assumptions. Bad assumption on my part, so I will be more careful with that in the future.
Don't worry. It is a common mistake people make with that expression.
How is a god a simple solution, though? Anything that can do anything is more complex than nothing... God is simple to say, and that makes it
easy, but I do disagree to it being a simple answer, all considered.
Ah, with this point you are looking to deeply into my example. Yes, god in all its meanings, is a very complicated answer, but I was mostly wanting
you to look at it as a simple three letter answer to a complex question. I guess that was my fault for trying to over simplify my example lol.
As for the possibility, I want to make it clear that I did not suggest it. I was suggesting that perhaps it was the process to which Randyvs
was referring, as he said that "science proves it is medically possible." I took that a bit broadly I suppose and included a natural process by which
females could birth females without being first impregnated. You were right to point out that males are not, and cannot be, born from this method...
at least not what we would consider males/humans.
I understand. Like I said, I made no assumptions about your beliefs. Just addressing those points. I see the problem is that randy didn't explain
himself well enough, and I'm still waiting for him to get back about those points I raised about the "virgin" birth.
If an organism had more than 2 sex chromosomes, perhaps it would be possible? But I don't know the genetics behind that... I must admit that
my studies of the biological (non-mineralized) world have been and passed for some time, so forgive me if I am mistaken in anything.
I don't really study much biology either. I usually dabble in physics and astronomy (I like math). Sciences that are more math oriented. Though I have
learned quite a bit about evolutionary theory thanks to people like the OP is referring to and having to counter their many strawmans and
