Ok I will try my best to answer these questions. The bible states that God is the alpha and omega, the begining and end, knowing the end before the begining. As this He would have known He would create a female before ever starting to create the male. Therefore He would have created man with the ability to procreate before creating the female counterpart.
As for homosexual people, I believe they correct to assert they are born this way. Here is why, sin is not an action but a defect we are born with that seperates us from God. The actions many refer to as sin are a by product of this defect, as are greed, hate, and the desire many tout to deny His existence. Our deaths are a direct result of this defect as well. It is for this reason we now must make a effort to seek Him out, as the defect keeps Him from directly showing Himself to us. As an imperfect being we could not survive in the direct presence of God. Perfection and imperfection can not exist together. The imperfect either would taint the perfect or in this case since the perfect is a superior being, the perfect would ultimately destroy the imperfect.

ha ha....what a funny question.
could you imagin adam waking up one morning and looking down........."what is that?"
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Adam had no companion yet God,who created all male and female animals,didn't know that his male human would also need a female human companion. And if he didn't,then originally Adam would've had no penis because he wouldn't have needed one.
And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Whether or not that's refering to the spirit or the body, the Genesis story tells of some inherant flaws.
The least of which were their gullibility and ignorance to be tricked into eating the apple.
So the question is, did God intentionally put those flaws in them, thus making Adam and Eve less than his own image. Or, God is inherantly flawed, and hemade Adam and Eve as close to himself as possible, and passed on his own flaws.
What I want to know is, if God created us in his image, and humans do evolve, then does that mean that God evolved, and if so wouldn't that mean humans are some day destined to be Gods?

And how can we be in his image after these modifications? Does that imply that God has no balls?
