DAVID: when life was single-celled, reproduction was simply cells splitting. The evolution of sexual reproduction has never been explained by evolution theory. It is highly complex, and must be tightly controlled to avoid errors, noting the high speed of the process. This research tells us something of how it works, not how it was created. Design is required by a designer.

dhw: I have always suspected that stem cells were the foundation stones of evolution, thanks to their ability to differentiate. Exciting stuff! And yes, I have always acknowledged the case for design, which is a major reason why I am not an atheist. You already know the reasons why I am not a theist either.

Correction. Stem cells are programmed to be exact copiers, not evolvers. That job is in the germ cells DNA to carry over new changes, but we do not know exactly how it works for new species.
