whatever you want to believe, be my guest. :-) However, it has also been said in this thread that the OP is trying to disprove evolution... We are in
the area of abiogenesis here. So lets not derail the thread with your ignorance. Back to the topic... excellent question OP, thanks again for bringing
this up :up

How is that a personal attack? The OP asked about the evolution of sexual reproduction. That is not a part of abiogenesis. I provided the answers
to his question and a link, which he choose to ignore.
So, now the thread is about Abiogenesis and not Sexual Reproduction? So why the questions about sexual reproduction and how it came about?
Neither of you clearly know what either states and where one ends and the other takes over, if you think his OP was about Abiogenesis.
If humans, or all life for that matter, was to come from one life form, how did mating come to be?
And if we came from a single cell, why would that cell change its habits from self replicating, to mating over the course of evolution? Surely self
replicating is more efficient, mating would seem to be a step backwards. Why don't animals just self replicate?
Those questions deal with Evolutionary Theory . . . The OP is assuming Abiogenesis in the qualifications of his questions.
Maybe if either of you educated yourselves on both issues, you would understand that "fact". I think this is where the disconnect is occuring.
Seriously . . . no arrogance here. You both just need to read up on both before entering into a discussion. The OP has already made it clear that he

No I actually said I saw the words "competing scientific hypotheses" and didn't bother reading because again, they're hypotheses. And I never said I
wouldn't read anything about the topic, I just said I won't read theories. I'd love to see what other input people have on the topic, different ideas
are always interesting.
So, not interested in "educating" in things that aren't facts. Which to you are "theories". So, you still don't understand what those terms actually
mean and are continuing to confuse Hypothesis and Theory (tested explanation of facts, which are events that do happen in reality) with opinion. But,
you want other views which, if not hypothesis or theory have even less facts, as both have been tested and stand up to testing. So, you want
opinions, as they are more trustworthy? Since, no explanation contains any "facts"?
So what is the purpose of asking the questions or starting a discussion? Nothing, according to your definitions, will contain any "facts" . . .
therefore, you have already stated you don't want to read about them or educate yourself . . . as you are only interested in "facts"? And, outside of
the questions in the OP . . . you have offered no other info to further the discussion. How is it a discussion, if you don't share your views? What
is your point of asking questions, if not for education?
Good luck with a thread that "seeks answers", but is unwilling to educate yourself on the answers that are already widely available . . . hope you
find the confirmation you are looking for.
