Nice work, Mintaka.
Related to Q8... could the first cells have reproduced asexually via Mitosis and Cytokinesis?
Thanks Sentinel. Sexual reproduction would require some sort of meiotic division so you'll end up with haploid gametes. Not sure how that first came about ???.

I'm not completely familiar with biology or evolution on this level, but I do know that the first forms of life did not have bones or hard exoskeletons, which are generally preserved in the form of fossils.

We may never know what the first genitals looked like. Who brought up this subject anyway?
8. With what did the first cell capable of sexual reproduction reproduce?

There are ladies on this forum! :)

When, where, why, and how did life come from dead matter?

Well i know it is a tough question but here is the answer:

when? a long time ago.....much longer than your claim of 6000 years for the age of the earth.

where: 23 degrees south 27.5 degrees east

why: well here was life crawling along in the mud of non existence amongst all the dead matter looking for a nice blond to mate with....and Life came up empty...so (contrary to what cavemen and women believe) Life decided to go for dead matter and whalla! Dead matter became alive (so to speak) but only after life invaded it of course....and ever since then there was life (in dead matter). I know it seems far fetched but for someone who is desperate to believe in almost any old story im sure it will suffice - As you most probably know: it is easier to believe BS than to expend the energy to acquire a basic understanding of the human process of knowing and answering difficult questions...aka science.

But the point is: as Luthon64 asked - even if all of your questions could be answered and most if not all of them can, how will that support your belief in a spook or three? ::)

I'm confused - Why do you go to a Christian website and read an article with the title "Evolution Science Fiction" to get information about evolution? Do you really think Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron are authorities on the subject?
Quote from: The way of the Master - Evolution
Ray asks several individuals, "Do you believe man evolved from apes?"

Whenever someone says something like this, he knows nothing about evolution. Trust me.


If you are really serious about the subject, please do yourself a favour and start by reading the following book: Saving Darwin - How to be a Christian and Believe in Evolution.

Darwin, a Christian, faced the same theological crisis we do: How can an all powerful and omniscient God allow such cruelties in nature? He studied the ichneumon wasp that lays eggs inside a caterpillar, feeding on its insides whilst keeping it alive until they themselves are ready to pupate. He could not believe that God would allow this.

This inspired him and later lead to his theory of evolution, through which he could blame natural selection for the cruelty found in nature, and not his benevolent God.

This you would find out, if you are truly serious in your search.

Get the question right:
Cells do not reproduce sexually, organisms may or may not. I am still not sure I understand the "with what" portion of this question.
The best I can answer on this would be their chromosomes since, in essence, sexual reproduction is a recombination of genetic material from different individuals.
This is an oversimplified definition, but the question itself is vague and does not make sense as stated.
