you get 50% of your genes from one parent and the other 50% from the other parent. wouldn't we have asexual reproduction for a more perfect evolution?

If evolution is true then how did sexual reproduction START in the first place

Plus the bonding of partners would tend to increase their offspring's chances at surviving until they themselves could reproduce.

No, tell me. How did we get from amoeba-like single called life, to multicellular creatures that are male and female and produce sexually. Be sure to use actual examples and not "well it could have"

This is my thoughts as well.  I will add that I am sure the criticism of evolution will be by people clearly familiar with it.

If anyone is actually interested in reading about this, I'd recommend "The Selfish Gene" by Dawkins. It was written long before he became militant, so it's not preachy and it's pretty accessible.

Of course if you just want to sling shit around and not bother reading anything, who am I to stop you?

A mutation affects one individual at a time

Sexual reproduction requires two individuals

For a mutation to convert a species or population from asexual reproduction to sexual reproduction would be far too big of a jump

Genetic reason: Better to be able to have access to additional genetic traits through selective breeding then monotrait division which would limit an organism/species from adaptation.

Social reason: 2 Parents being able to care for their offspring mean an increased chance of generational survival to reproductive age.


Between the two you would have evolution choosing for sexual reproduction, not against.

They have these things called reptiles and fish, they can reproduce in the ways you speak. There is no could have when you still have living examples of shitloads of ways to reproduce, I'm not about to go over all of them.

Because evolution doesn't have an agenda.



Also, many organisms--to include some animals--DO reproduce asexually. Humans did not evolve that way. The largest advantage of our ancestors was their social nature, and therefore it would be advantageous (and thus would better ensure survival) to have two parents producing offspring for whom they cared until they were mature.

Not among unicellular organisms.



Some of them can reproduce "sexually" by sharing packets of genes, or asexually, and often switch back and forth depending on the donditions.



Hell, there are even some multi-cellular organisms that do this.



Sharing genes has been around a long, long time.
