    So I was listening to a podcast earlier and they mentioned how there is a theory that says that women actually started the human race and males were made afterwards just as a means of reproduction, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this?
    Thanks

    But women needed a woman AND a man to be made in the first place

    Well it's presumably true that if you go back far enough, a distant ancestor of humans (along with most other animals) was neither male nor female. But it would have evolved to have two different genders long, long before it remotely resembled anything like a human, or even a mammal.

    Well they certainly seem like it.

    How can men be expected to understand a species who think that Hello Kitty is the coolest thing in the world? Do they not know that there's such things as astronauts?

    That wouldn't mean that women and men were entirely different species, though. It would mean that that the original species, which would have had both reproductive organs (i.e. a hermaphrodite) and could have self-fertilised, evolved into 2 strains, 1 with only male reproductive organs and 1 with only female ones (and Psyk says, this would all be long before the species resembled our current state). Neither women nor men can reproduce without their respective counterparts, so they are not distinct species.

    You seem to have encountered a religious fundamentalist.

    I know what this guy is
    Excuse my words..another fanatical religious being

    but I want to hear what made him mention something written in the Holy Book here
    that is seriously not the topic under discussion

    Secondly, I seriously don't know what such men think they are
    If Eve was evolved from Adam's rib....do they suppose man is superior to woman?

    No, females are not their own species. This is absurd.
