2. Bible is Wrong in Every Important Testable Instance ==>
   2.2. The Origin of Species ==>

2.2.1. Gender


The authors of the Bible thought that woman was created out of man:

Genesis 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

First Corinthians 11:8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.


In fact, the opposite is true Men are alterations on the female design. The y chromosome contains the genetic data on which male characteristics are based. These male genes are a set of alterations on the basic human design. In the absence of these genes, a female will develop. Genetically speaking, female is the default gender.

Another gene known to reside on the Y chromosome is a key sex determination gene. For the first 40 days after conception, all human embryos develop in much the same way. Then, a sex-determining gene on the males Y chromosome called SRY (for Sex-determining Region of the Y chromosome), comes into play. The product of the SRY gene converts the gonad cells of the early human embryo into testes, which in turn triggers development of male sexual organs. If expression of SRY is blocked, the embryos gonad cells go on to become ovaries and female sexual organs develop. In other words, all human embryos will develop into females unless they are masculinized by the product of the SRY gene.

Shouldn't a book that is "God Breathed" be a little more accurate than that?

The bible has it WRONG but you have faith in the bible.

Why do you have faith in a book that is obviously wrong in this regard?
