yeah and the whole woman made from the rib of adam vs slow evolution is nice too.
We all start developing with a female "blueprint"
21.4 Development of the internal genital organs
The differentiation of the male sex organ canals is influenced by the testosterone hormone that is produced from the 8th week in the fetal
testis by Leydig's interstitial cells.
this proves that all female and male share a common beginning.
somehow the sexless organism evolved and began to develop a "simple" way to reproduce itself differently than its counterparts...
this modification made it "stronger" and it prevailed over the sexless ones.
(there are still organisms that don't need males to reproduce)
somewhere in its development this "simple" modification started to infuse a bit of someone else its "info"
(the first "simple modification" could have been started off because some external "info" insertion happened, imagine the "soup" getting more
acidic (evaporation of water) and weakening the cell wall/membrane, less water less space so they got "pushed" against each other, the weakening of
the cells wall made it possible to fuse some cells together.)
it survived ("female") and the ones that got infused("male") into the other didn't.
(i know they are not female or male, its just easier to imagine it this way)
a long long developing path began and we can still see this in embryos , we start with the "female blueprint" and in week 8th a male forms because of
the influence of testosterone, and it rejects some female "blueprint info" the female follows its original "blueprint"
the clitoris will become a penis.
imagine that the initial modification that infused external "info" now developed to have a "sensor" to spot the best candidate to infuse.
and there you go, this "sensor" became the clitoris.
now imagine a cell desperately looking for sensor input, or feeling around for a better candidate, and enlarging its "sensor" .
now it has the "info" to pass on to its offspring and with that these offspring has better surviving options than the ones without it.
somewhere on the line of evolution it started to "specialize" this modification.
and there you go this, specialization became the penis.
with that said...
what came first the chicken or the egg?
"the chicken was the egg."
